Had a wonderful time at Mjolner Melbourne. We ordered way too much food and felt terrible sending back some barely touched dishes. They were amazing but we couldn’t finish them. The team was understanding and very attentive. The music was a tad too loud for our liking but we could still hear each other’s conversations. A very pleasant evening. Definitely worth a regular visit when in Melbourne.

My partner and I had a fantastic dinner at Mjolner. The restaurant had nice background music playing that wasn't loud. The food was incredible. It was the perfect place for me to propose to my partner. Mjolner is his favourite restaurant and the setting was perfect. Thank you to the team at Mjolner.

If you want experience ambrosia, eat here. My husband and I are foodies, we like to spend money on good food and this establishment is exceptionally good, it ticks all the boxes which made us feel we wanted to eat at Mjolner the very next night! The ambience has a mystique and cool vibe. Its interior reflects modern industrial with wrought iron and beautiful timber doors. Mixed with Viking inspired peices cased in glass, ancient viking knives, chalices and masks, gives it unique character and style.

Mjolner was a dining experience that I would highly recommend to anyone interested in Nordic themes and vikings! Or simply just enjoys a scrumptious - meat heavy - meal. The small details and the enthusiasm of all staff really sets the tone for a fantastic evening both exciting and delicious. Definitely will visit again.

Absolutely loved the total atmosphere, decorations and the effort the staff gave to give us an authentic Scandanavian/Viking experience. Everything felt customised and specially made. Plus the awesome mead and cocktails were refreshing. The meal was amazing and I've already told many people about our time. 11/10 will deffently come back for another round !!!

I'm not usually one to speak ill of themed restaurants/bars but as the Norse saying goes, "Hvars þú böl kannt, kveð þú þér bölvi at, ok gef-at þínum fjándum frið" which roughly translates to "Where you recognise evil, speak out against it, and give no truces to your enemies".

Thor and Odin would not be proud of the way these people have depicted Viking culture. The dead animals we feasted upon, while tasty, were overpriced. Management would not let us drink downstairs and forced us to eat or pay the $125 cancellation fee if we did not dine, even though we were paying exorbitant amounts to imbibe. THAT IS NOT VIKING AF.

It was pretty sick drinking liquids out of horns though, so points for that.

Food was amazing, fresh oysters, tomahawk steak cooked to perfection with delicious sides.

The whole experience and service was brilliant, attentive and even got a small birthday token to remember the evening with - would love to come back for a group dining experience!

Food and amdience was fantastic. Only let down was the services. The waiter and waitress were top notch and very thorough however the disappointing part was the wrong main order given and incorrect final bill, both of which were quickly amended.

Had a fantastic meal with the family. Probably not normally a family restaurant, tailoring more to couples and adult groups but the staff did a wonderful job of accommodating the kids and making the night for them.

The only thing that had Mjolner lose a mark was the noise level and that it made conversation difficult.

Other than that, Mjolner is absolutely an experience I’ll be returning to in future.

Loved this place! There are a few quirky things which make this a fun place to have dinner. Friendly, charismatic staff and the food was delicious. My personal recommendations are the gravlax and the beef ribs.. YUM! Wouldn't get the waygu steak from here again but everything else was really tasty and beautifully presented.

From the minute we arrived we felt welcome and special. All staff paid attention to the little details, explained whats so special about their service and what they have to offer.

The food menu is simple but the quality was outstanding, wholesome and substantial. The drinks list is extensive and of high quality.

A great night had by all.

Great place to eat with friends and share a hearty Viking meal with a modern twist. The service was great and all staff were extremely helpful and patient while we decided what we wanted. The food was great, and it was wonderful to drink my mead from a horn just like my ancestors would have.

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!!!!!

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.
