We had 2 experiences here- one with our Viking themed 4 course meal (worth a try!) and one just for dinner. If you're staying in the hotel, it's ideally situated and serves alcohol for those who want a bevvy; if you're staying in the village else where and you ask people where the best place to eat is- they will...

Wonderful setting and ambience due to an amazing minstrel of viking songs, ceremonies and droll humour. Food excellent.

This place is right on the water at the harbor, and had some meet historical photographs to see of the area. This place was walking distance from our AirBNB place and was... More

This is a really cool restaurant! The architecture is really amazing, like the type of viking long house you see on Grand Designs and be happy to live in. Every corner is decorated with cool viking artifacts, from shields to tapestries, stone thrones and viking jewellery, lots of things to keep your eyes busy for sure. We booked a big... More

The leaflet we picked up for this place gave the impression of there being different things to see such as elf gardens to walk around, a themed cave bar, museumy place and themed meal with entertainment. We visited firstly during the afternoon and everything was empty and quiet...we couldn't find any gardens. There is also a hotel so we went... More

In the hotel we have a cave, a bar and a souvenir store not a museum. The restaurant is only open in the evening from 6 to 10. We're sorry you found your experience... More

I was really looking forward to having some fish and when I asked for the catch of the day, the waitress replied " hot dog". We tried the lamb , the duck, and the Christmas special. All was tasty and prepared well but nothing to brag about for the expensive price.

Our restaurant actually isn't that expensive if you compare it to other restauants, but we hope in the future that you'll give us a second chance. We will look forward to see... More
