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!

Wow! Amazing food and simply superb professional service. Had a fantastic meal. The music is a little odd given the theme and it was a little bit loud but otherwise couldn’t fault the experience. Not a cheap night out but good value overall.

So it's my second time going to Mjolner. I love it, awesome venue, cool, great ambiance. Food was good as always, except, the pork belly dish. It was really really bad, in fact I'd go as far as saying it was terrible.

It was extremely fatty, to the point of being indelible, and there was only a mere morsel of actual pork, which was pink by the way. Pork is not meant to be pink at all. The crackling was ok.

I've had pork belly before, and it was melt in your mouth. This wasn't. The couple next to use thought the same, and left whole dish on their plate, similar to us.

No way it was a $60 piece of meat. I did mention it to the waiter and his response was pork belly is always fatty. Not to this extent mate.

Well recommended for a one off treat. Food is excellent if you're into meat that is.

Bit expensive for a casual dining, but worth the extra dollars for the experience.

Great food! Great restaurant! But I felt the Viking vibe was lacking and to be honest it’s a bit pricey.

It is very much in the Vue Dumonde pricing range which I was surprised at.

It is expensive, but well worth it for a special occasion. A very memorable feast!

This is based on my....4th visit here? It has become less cheesy with the "theatrics" which is great but still has a slight underlying cringe factor to it. Unfortunately again, we were "butted up" against a table back to back (with the first walk away to the left as you go up the stairs) which makes it a bit annoying for the staff to squeeze through, needing to move water jugs over heads to get past and just general feeling of being confined in a space just because they don't want to "spread us out" (even though there were only 5 tables in at the time we were there, would have been much better access and sitting for everyone, had we just been moved one table up...). I guess things like this makes you consider the difference in attention to customer's comfort and space enjoyment when you're spending $400 between 2 people.. The food is ALWAYS amazing. The service is usually great... however not sure I'm keen to be spending $200p/p for the overall feel there any more. (Yep, we drink up good when we are there!)

Celebrated our anniversary with my boyfriend here. Mjolner staff not only made it an intimate and amazing experience, but were very kind in gifting us our own Mjolner shot cups as an anniversary present. I would definitely recommend others to come enjoy the Viking experience.

P.s Make sure you to try taking a shot down the bone marrowbone! One in a life time experience.
