I love the relaxed feel of this place the authentic Norse feeling to it. like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The 3 course meal set out for our table was amazing. Everyone loved the food, drinks and experience. Service was well-timed and friendly, drinks were affordable.

What an incredible experience, great atmosphere, food was top notch. Knowledgeable staff, great service.

One thing I could say is if you want to improve the ambience over all. Play some warduna, or other Norse music instead of today’s top hits.

Had a great time William definitely visit again and again. SKÅL!!!!!

Great experience, they seemed to be quite busy and were not prepared so we did wait a little for some service areas. They did apologise. Overall great experience and really nice food. Fun!

Normally, Mjolner is a really great place to go for great service, delicious food and amazing drinks. Sadly, though the food and drinks were wonderful the service left much to be desired. It was though our table was being treated as an ‘after thought’ and not receiving the same quality of service as the other tables. I would still recommend Mjolner to others and would likely go again, it is just a shame to have not had the usual service when we had interstate guests with us.

First time I went a year ago the service, food and ambience was perfect. This time I was disappointed. There was a bucks party nearby. The service switched off once they had covered "so you've been here before?". It was incredibly noisy making conversation difficult. When we were finished there was minimal interest, the venue was no different to a busy pub. They need to go back to the standards they held last year.

Hello Neil, I am sincerely sorry about the experience that you had with us on Friday evening. I assure you this is not the standard we strive for in the restaurant. I would absolutely love some more details around you're expereince and would really like to get you back in sometime so we can show you that we do in fact strive to not only maintain our standards but exceed them. Please feel free to contact me at nick.w@speakeasygroup.co m.au Regards, Nick Winter ,General Manager.

This was my third trip here but things have changed substantially since February. The staff ranged from indifferent to rude And I really miss the passion and excitement that the old crew used to bring. Would need to word-of-mouth recommendation to come back another time.

The Mjolner team were very helpful in making my partner’s intimate birthday dinner worth while.
Service was efficient and welcoming, they were polite and hospitable.
Great atmosphere and the experience is one of a kind.
Speaking of kind they also gave my partner a birthday gift and a written card, which made this birthday one to not forget.
Definitely over exceeded my expectations.
I’ve already recommended this place to my friends!

The dining experience is just unreal at Mjolner. I decided to bring some friends along recently to show what I am raving about and they left minds blown. From the second you walk in the surroundings captivate you, even the staff have put the extra effort in to look genuinely the part and welcome you straight away with a shot of this amazing honey mead. The meats are cooked to perfection and complimented by flavorsome sauces and seasonings, presentation is Instagram worthy. I literally can't fault this place, I don't even mind paying that little bit extra for the best dining experience I can find the city.

Not a bad meal, everything was good but not amazing, quite expensive for what you got on the group menu. Too small a space provided to have shared plated plus the novelty drinking horns, felt very cramped. Exceptionally mousey, not aided by the night club level sound system. Slow service with multiple service people meant mixed up orders and things not communicated - resulting in a double up order that we were told we were responsible for paying. Like I said, it's alright, not amazing. Out of two beers, also.

Food was great. Lots of fun choosing knives and drinking from horns. Staff were fantastic. Prices are too high in my opinion, I expected a larger steak considering price and theme of the restaurant. Dessert is a miss. Overall a good time.

The atmosphere was amazing, and the gimmicks like the knife choice and drinking out of a horn was awesome. However the best parts were the phenomenal food and the waiter. Tom was knowledgeable and made us feel special, then finding out he only had worked for a week was surprising. Give that man a raise

I recently had my birthday dinner at Mjolner and thought it was amazing! The food was delicious and the service was great, the staff were attentive and friendly. I was blown away when I was gifted a horned shot glass as a birthday present. I will definitely be returning to Mjolner!

Lovely experience for my partners birthday. Food was different, nice little touches. They also gave my partner a lovely birthday card and shot glass to take home! Only negatives were that the seats are very close together with not much space to get in and out from your table, also the staff looked a bit stretched and under the pump! They could have done with extra staff. Overall lovely experience

Our waiter was fantastic, very tentative to our needs but didn’t hover. The music let the place down, unfortunately it seemed completely out of place for the theme and was extremely loud. The waiter did mention to another staff member that it was too loud at one point.
The food was superb and worth the 2.5 hour drive. High recommend the Blazing Glogg!
Unfortunately we didn’t stay for dessert as we were struggling to hold a conversation with the noise level. Hopefully we will return in the near future to try everything else on the menu.
