A group of 10 of us are here a couple of times over the Easter bank holiday weekend 2017. Located approx 10 minutes from Kanfanar this restaurant serves great food at a pretty reasonable price in a stunning location. The seafood doesn't come much fresher as it's caught in the Fjord that the restaurant sits on. Highly recommended.

We were in Viking for the first time, and it'll be our last. Staff is very poor, they treat customers like we're on a line: come, serve, go. They don't take you to your seat, 2 waiters pointed 2 tables to me and told me I can seat there. I'm not particular, but attitude and tone where far from kind.... More

Viking has a beautiful view of the Limski Kanal. It is a traditional seafood restaurant, offering mussels that grow in the Limski Kanal. Mussels are fresh and very tasty. Oysters are good, but even better are mixed shellfish on "buzara". For 4 oysters, one portion of mixed shellfish (750g) and two glasses of wine (Malvasia) we paid 33 eur. Limski... More

one of the top places for seafood. We ate mixed shells and was perfect. The service is bad and the wine offered sucks

This summer we were staying in Istria and our airbnb hosts recommended eating seafood at the Limski Fjord. We decided on The Viking restaurant. The food OK, nothing to rave about, but I wouldn't have complained either. However when we got the check we noticed that we had been charged 50% more than expected for the grilled fish. Upon asking... More

we are now going to this restaurant for years and it is always the same (meaning great). The building looks pretty much the same as it was many years ago...kind of socialist architecture. The fish is fresh, the head waiter who has been working there forever is not letting you make mistakes with your choice of fish...he offers a cheaper... More
