    What a sensational experience! On theme for the whole night - some of the best food I’ve had in ages. Do yourself a favour and get the bone marrow - followed by a shot of whiskey from The Hammer. Highly recommend.

    What an adventure! These days it is no good just offering food and beverage. To be cool you must offer an experience. Mjølnir delivers. From the eclectic music on arrival to the staffs dress code everything is on point. The food and beverage are excellent and on theme. Cocktails fun. Wine list excellent. Great night for a family of Vikings. Skål!

    Great place, the staff were friendly and helpful with deciding what we should get. The music in the background was good, wasn't overpowering so you could have a conversation with ease while enjoying it still. The food was delicious. Unique experience overall in regards to drinking and being given some fun knives to pick with our meal.

    Restaurant is a wonderful experience. The food was amazing with a massive selection of cocktails and drinks. What made the night extra special was the glasses and horn's to drink from, plus choosing a viking knife from the selection was entertaining. Would definitely go back.

    Steak was very tough for $80 - not cooked medium rare. Starters were great, highly recommend the prawns they were huge and value for money. Felt rushed from the service and waitress was hovering over all the time, not allowing us to enjoy and take our time. For a $200 bill, expected a lot more. Have been here before and had a much better experience.

    On Wednesday my partner and I had an impromptu evening in Melbourne. We came down from Albury, used Open Table to search for best eats and found Mjolner! The medieval door from the laneway was mysterious & that led us into this wonderfully decorated space, lit with candles and Viking décor. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was absolutely delicious! The chowder is a must do. We'll be back and have already started telling friends about our experience. Thank you for a great night!

    OMG what a perfect night! Everything was completely spot on. The mood was done so well whilst holding the theme in line. The food was incredible we went for it and got all the extras. 100% worth everybit. Paulina our host was incredible at her job and she deserves a promotion. It was our 2 year anniversary and at the end of the night we got a card and some gifts from the staff to take home. Love love love. We will be back for sure Thanks again for making our special night so memorable 💖

    My Mjolnir experience was amazing for the first time going there. The drinks were as beautiful as I imagined them to be, the food was mouth watering, the design of the restaurant was perfect, and of course, the service. The service brought a big smile to my face, they made the experience 10x better, I loved the immersion. My highlight of the night was when I drank beer out of a horn!

    This was even better than we expected. A very classy take on a themed restaurant. Stunning venue and ambience (including great low level lighting and soundtrack), very professional and lovely staff and beautiful food. The only downside is the cost, especially the drinks. We had the set menu and it was delicious and very generous. It is too expensive to visit frequently but definitely worth visiting for special occasions.

    Amazing place I went in happy and came out ecstatic as the overall vibe was just perfect and the staff were all welcoming and real. Price was high but personally absolutely worth it as I had the best time, they got the experience, food, culture and everything you would expect exactly and would absolutely make an excuse to come again as often as I can. Thank you Finn our waitress as well for a very nice and welcoming and having fun with us

    Entering the space was truly an experience, from the first greeting and seating to the fantastic waitstaff who put so much care and fun into your night. Great reccomendations to heighten the experience. quotes that were beautifully expressed and a great knowledge base of the menu's. The food was delicious, unique flavorful and warming for a cold winters night. The drinks were a highlight! From the mead served in horns to shots you can pour through the flamed bones of your feast it was a spectacular night! Thankyou to the wonderful staff!

    Food was good but far too expensive for what it is ( I know you pay additional for the gimmick ). The chicken was overcooked. It was still nice but nothing special. The beef short rib was really nicely done but probably not worth the $55. The broccoli was not great. Bone marrow and the meat platter at $30 a pop each was laughable for the quality. Bone marrow tasted like an oxo cube and the meat platter was bang average and small for the cost. We loved the ambience of the place. Yes it's gimmicky but a really cool experience. Drinking beer out of a horn and shots of whiskey out of the bone was great fun! The service was nice too ( we think? ). At times we felt it was a little "off" but it might have been continental dry humour, it was mostly pleasant and very attentive. Loved that drinks were done first, a rarity in Australia where usually you wait around for ages and order everything in one go. It was a much more relaxed pace. $250 for two people is steep for what it is, no getting around it, but I encourage others to experience. People rave about it, so it could just be me that doesn't get the hype.

    The place is well themed, intimate seating, the servers do a good job at creating the theatre that goes with the experience. The oysters and bone marrow + whiskey is a must! The lighting is very dim, it seemed our table was especially dim -using the actual decorative candles to try make out the menu! Other than that it was good. Looked after us -made sure the dietary requirements were met.

    Total rip off. After a reschedule due to COVID, we finally got here, 8 guests rather than 7. We had phoned and emailed a few times in the preceding days to include the extra person and the FOH girl reacted with disgust and dismay when I announced who we were and that it was for 8, not 7. After harrumphing and dirty looks at my partner and I, she stomped off and came back and said "It's ok now, it's sorted" rather than any apology! Food was salty and very poorly presented (I know it's Nordic nosh, but for top dollar, I like at least reasonable presentation), drinks were overpriced and the bathrooms that we were near, smelled like sewage. Authentic Viking experience indeed. Primitive, basic, and lacking modern sanitation. I'm part Viking, proudly so, but I won't be back. The >$1100 bill we paid felt like a thwack from Thor's proverbial hammer.

    The atmosphere, food and service were amazing. The only thing that let it down for me was we were in a booth and the table next to us had two of the loudest girls on it you would ever meet. Out waitress had to stop talking about the drinks menu because we couldn't hear her. Once they let the staff were lovely and apologetic. Would definitely return again

    Had been trying to contact the restaurant 9hrs prior to my reservation several times to cancel as my partner is unwell and couldn’t attend with me for his birthday celebration dinner. Was contacted finally 30mins before my reservation to say that I would incur fees as per cancellation policy. Attended with my mother last minute. Service was good on the night but food was nothing outstanding. Shame I wasn’t able to experience this restaurant as intended with my partner so will not be dining here again which is a shame due to the underwhelming experience this time. Would have been nice for the person on the phone to at least be more empathetic. Definitely deflated the entire experience.

    Great food, we did the set menu for a group of six people. Could have been slightly more portions of the entree as it was tricky dividing 2 items between 6 people.
