Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have visited Harald several time, but now there were Grill weeks and outside from the normal list there were excellent choices available. The restaurant is decorated in Viking style and the stuff is dressed to match the decoration. Food is served on the top...of wooden “plates” and wine is served in clay pots. Food is taste and the portions are richMore

We had a spontaneous visit in town and decided to check out if there are tables available. We waited and finally a middle-aged waitress came and asked of we had a reservation and then told that we have No room with a terribly in-polate tone....That experience made us feel that we will never visit this restaurant again. Please educate your employees in how to behave.More

First of all for foreign visitors, this is a chain restaurant. The viking theme is mediocre at best and at the time of visit most of the customers were visibly drunk and loud. That said, restaurant can't realistically choose their customers. I ordered "Talkoopannu" dish...which consisted of half a sausage, ok-ish pork and bone dry piece of beef. My spouse had salmon which wasn't anything to write home about. House beer (honey flavour) doesn't taste like honey. TL;DR: Poor restaurant, but at least it's expensive.More

As everybody knows Corona pandemic has put some limits to every corner of the world. Now i had an gift card what expired during this period. Now i was thinking that maybe i dare to use it as it seems that it will not easy...up any time soon. I was quite stunned when this restaurant said its not valid anymore and you can throw it away! So i guess this is a way they want to rob their share of Corona support Euros: straight from tax payers. For me this means i will never set up a foot this place anymore and i hope everyone else is also measuring the ethics of this restaurant.More

Visited Harald restaurants couple of times earlier too and like on previous occasions, this time didn't let down. We had a biggest menu for two persons and it was fantastic and plenty. Quality of the food and really friendly service made our dinner very pleasant.

If you want to try traditional Finnish meats, this would be the place! I had the equivalent to the mixed grill but on a sword. It was served promptly and well but the best part was the traditional tar beer

We called in to this restaurant on a Monday evening and it was a great experience. Very warm and cosy and viking decor gave you lots to take in. The menu (in english) had great choice. We ordered a range of mains from elk, fish...and chicken. My chicken was very tender and everything was seasoned very well. My colleagues said the same of their dishes. The serving staff were really helpful in their recommendations and the ice cream choices at the end were definitely something I've never tried anywhere else and were so unusual. I would definitely recommend calling inMore

Honestly, we thought at first that this might be just an overrated restaurant for tourists. We went in nevertheless, and were surprised: Most of the guests seemed to be locals! The decoration and the menue were designed and put together with much thought and effort....Speaking of the menue, there are plenty of dishes to choose from. We were very happy with our choices, everything tasted really good, with interesting little "twists" to what we are used to.(eg unusual combinations or herbs) The service was very friendly. It is not a very cheap place, but also not very expensive for Finnish standards. Also, I think one pays for the whole experience there, not just the food, although it is delicious ;) .More
