A centrally located restaurant with a viking theme. Does the theme add any value? Well, not sure about that but the food was good. Service was friendly and relatively quick considering the amount of customers. Portions reasonably sized with lots of components. Pricing on a normal Finnish level. An ideal place especially for meat lovers who like rich tastes.

Restaurant is located in the center of the city. It's quite popular so if you want dine there i recomend to book a table in advance. Food and service was really good. We had Helga's and Harald Love Package for 2, and i recommend this warmly, its not cheap 100€ for two but it contains a lot of different dishes... More

They have huge variety of sets for one, two, three persons. We took set foe one person and it was big enough for two and consisted of deer meat, beaver sausage, beef, two tipes of potatoes side dishes, cabbage and 3 types of souces. We really enjoyed the meal and the amount very just right.

Harald is a Viking-themed restaurant in the heart of Lahti with good food and friendly, welcoming service. The menu is consistent to the theme, having many items one rarely sees elsewhere. Although the implementation of the food and the interior have fair room for improvement, this small-chain restaurant still provides a good alternative for your lunch or dinner in Lahti.

Stoping at Lahti for lunch. Check the tripadvisor and choose this restaurant at middle of the little city. Good central location. Food was very tasty. Finnish rye bread what the serve before dinner with melted butter was very nice. Good selection of different beers. We eat mid day and the restaurant was almost empty.

A different restaurant with a viking theme. Welcoming feeling, warm, friendly and relaxed service, but still fast. Food is tasty and well fitting for the theme. Location is good in the middle of town, price level decent. I bet you'll not be disappointed visiting Harald. Seems very popular, so I suggest a reservation.
