The first Viking Restaurant Harald opened 18 years ago in Tampere, Finland. Since then, six more branches have opened in Helsinki, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Lahti, Ouluand Turku – and another is opening in Espoo in August. “The idea is for our guests to switch off and leave their busy everyday lives at the door, while enjoying great-quality food and drink. We offer diners an all-round experience where they can delve into the Viking world,” explains Raine Verho, development director and partner at Viking Restaurant Harald.
