Could not find fault with anything we tried off the food or drinks menu which included seafood, meats and bone marrow (mouthwatering exceptional); accompanied by beer (drunk from a horn), wine, whiskey and a recommended flaming glogg.
Professional, approachable staff and inviting, warm ambience make this a dinning experience with a difference you should try.

Mjolner is not only a restaurant it's an experience.

Amazing food, creative cocktails and really good service.

We would recommend Mjolner to anybody that's looking for something different.

The Mjolner restaurant was an experience that will not be forgotten!!

The staff, food, drinks and decor was amazing and so fitting for the style of the restaurant! The fact the had remembered it was my partner's birthday was even better, by gifting him a card. Little touches like so are very much appreciated!

Would certainly recommend to many to visit this restaurant!

We chose the marrow bone and short ribs with scotch fillet. All were excellent.
The waitresses provided excellent service with assistance on drinks, shots etc.
The ambience is superb, not over the top, just right.

The food was amazing, accommodated for dietary requirements with no issue. Beautiful touch with the birthday card and present. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Would I recommend Mjolner - yes without a doubt even to my vegan friends :)

Great atmosphere!

What a great interactive night out. Food was simply stunning and the cocktails amazing! Lots of fun doing the bone marrow whisky experience and the music really made the environment of the restaurant. A special mention in particular to Nick who was super helpful on the phone. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

Mjolner is by far my favourite restaurant. The food there is second to none and the service is the best I have ever received at any establishment. Every time we come in the staff say a friendly hello and welcome us back.

I save up as often as I can to come here, and I recommend everyone tries going at least once. I also strongly recommend the short-rib as a main.

Very disappointed. Although wait staff really tried obviously senior hospitality staff need to iron out logistics. We had a forgotten round of drinks & a 45 minute wait between entree & main which was also missing serving cutlery. At this price point these mistakes are unacceptable its not the pub. Also there were 3 small children under 4 sitting next to us- controversial issues but for $100pp Im not listening to kids noises. So overall really disappointing. The ambiance serving staff & interior are verging on theatre restaurant rather than theme . Definitely a great restaurant with alot of potential if they sort out the continuity issues

Hands down our favourite restaurant in Melbourne. We make it a point to celebrate our birthdays there. Usually they give you a nice gift for your birthday but didn’t get one this time. But we were just happy that they were open again. The food was amazing as ever. The staff are always great as well. Highly recommended.

This is the 4 th time I have been to Mjolner I have now realised whilst the service and ambience is fabulous it is not really in my ‘wheelhouse ‘ being a little too ‘gimmicky’ for my liking.

Dinner at Mjolner Melbourne was a wonderful experience that we will treasure forever. From the minute we walked in we were enthralled by the ambience and aesthetics, and the charming hospitality of all staff we met. We booked this restaurant to celebrate my partners birthday, and when we mentioned this the staff provided my partner with a wonderful birthday card and gift which made our evening extra special! The cocktails were delicious and served with 'flare', the food arrived promptly and was unique, flavoursome and beautifully cooked and presented. There were a few surprise additions to the evening that kept in theme with the restaurant, I won't spoil them here, but please do experience this restaurant for yourself - you won't regret it.

Delicious food and atmosphere. A little pricey for beverages. For example my $10 mocktail was mostly ice and had about 2 shots of actual liquid. Food was worth every cent and highly recommend the 1kg steak.

Our waiter was friendly and attentive.

As a history lover, a nerd, a larper and as a follower of the Aesir (Odin, Thor, Frigg, Baldur, etc) I loved LOVED loved Mjoner.

Jarrod was quite happy to indulge me in conversation, and was extremely knowledgeable about the bar and all of the Nordic artefacts therein.

A horn of cider or mead is $15, same price for a shot of whiskey or Scotch. So not cheap.

We had a wonderful evening, the service was great and the little touches such as drinking from the horns made us feel part Viking for the night. The food was absolutely delicious and we finished with the baked Alaska which provided an additional piece of theatre to our dinner.

Ribs were great, everything else was very average. Waiter raved about how big the portions were and they weren’t really a feast as they sold it to us. Beer also gets really flat when you poor in a horn. $400 for 3 people with one of them not having any desert or alcohol is a lot.

Mjolner is amazing!

I will go to most themed restaurants because I love anything themed.

Mjolner takes this to another level. It's a Viking/nordic themed restaurant with nods to Odin, Thor and more but its also fine dining at its finest!

We went here for our 14th year anniversary and it didn't disappoint.

Started off the night with two delicious entrees; Baked clams, prawns and scallops in delicious Umami butter, everything was cooked to perfection and so flavoursome and also the Veal Loin, the flavours combinations on this plate were mouth-watering.

For our mains, we had the Feature which was Roast Porchetta (Pork) this dish was absolutely delicious and rather large! Pork crackling cooked to perfection and the snake beans were tasty and also the Short Rin which just fell straight off the bone.
I will say these portions were giant especially with the entrees to start.

For a side, we had the New Potato which is a combination of Goats cheese, cornichons and shallots. I absolutely love these and ended up eating most of them to myself.

We did not get to enjoy dessert as we were WAY too full to eat another bite.

Throughout the course of our meals, we did have a couple of cocktails and my partner had cider in a Viking horn. Each cocktail has more than one type of alcohol and all different kinds of flavours, they are exquisite. We had Northern Lights, Roskva, and Recharging the Odinforce. I would absolutely recommend all of them but most of all Recharging the Odinforce as they light part of it on fire.

At the end with our bill, we got a cute little card with a pop up illustration which I kept.

Thank you Mjolner, we will be back again!
