Fantastic restaurant with incredible food and great service. We had the suckling pig set lunch menu and it was brilliant - large servings, beautifully plated with terrific flavours. Great wine and beer list but also happy to make something special for non-drinkers.

A restaurant with great ambience - perfect for a special occassion. We ordered the chicken and wagyu; chicken was tender and flavorsome however, the wagyu was a big disappointment. There were lots of tendons in our wagyu that my partner and I spent most of our time chewing and spitting out parts that were too chewy and tough because of the tendon. It would have been great if the wagyu was tender and tendon-free.
Staff was very friendly and accomodating although we thought they were understaffed that night as we had to wait a long time to get our water cups refilled and couldn't get their attention because there were insufficient staff on the floor.

From the moment we laid eyes on the heavy set wooden door the place was unique, downstairs to the bar and private rooms and upstair for the main dining hall, the walls were lined with shelves in metal cages showing off helmets, swords , knives, axes and shields of various types and drinking horns,
Service was amazing, my partner and i felt like we were regulars despite it being our first visit
the only thing i would consider not the best about the whole experience was the city dident have that end of Hardware land properly marked, it looked like it was called something else and google maps dident want to play in the city streets so nothing to do with the venue at all, we will defently come back again

It was a beautifully designed interior space. Love all the viking decor. Only downside would be how loud it gets inside when they are busy, it is very hard to talk to each other.

What great food and fantastic staff. I was told this was a theme restaurant but to me it was more of an inspired restaurant. The food and drink were really very good and well explained. The decor and cutlery added to the experience. The best thing about the night was our table staff, who not only helped us with our food and drink selection... but also with our itinary for the rest of our night out in Melbourne. Outstanding.

The service at Mjolner was fantastic. The staff are professional and the food was delightful. Mjolner is a fine example of getting what you pay for. While the cocktails are slightly above the average cost in Melbourne, it's made up by the delivery and uniqueness of the drink.

Highly Recommended and a must for all to visit.
First class food and ambiance. Viking themed with out of this world theater. The best service I have ever come across within all of Melbourne. Made the birthday celebrations a night to remember forever.
Recommend the Bone Marrow, be sure to wash it down with a Highlander Scotch, and the traditional Gravlax was amazing.

Great fun drinking out of horns, and shots, you get to pick your weapons to eat dinner with IE some very big and heavy cutlery. The waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable, guided us through the menu. Food not particularly Vikingish ( What is Viking food?)
Children and babies did not seem welcome.

Wow. Talk about going above and beyond! Everything about our experience at Mjolner was just perfect. I took my partner here for a special occasion and he was spoilt without making him feel uncomfortable. The food was amazing, especially if you appreciate good quality nose to tail meat eating :) Can't wait to go back with a group so we can experience the banquet menu (min 8 people I believe). Would be great to offer a set menu for 2 people. Thanks again - can't wait to go back!

Overpriced for what it is

Incredible experience during our visit to Melbourne. Erin our server was so knowledgeable, attentive and welcoming. Would definitely return for more of their signature ribs and bombe alaska . Highly recommend their seasonal set menu. Food was a bit slow to come out of the kitchen, but once it was out, servers were all lovely and helpful. Truly unique experience.

Sensational food and attentive, friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Some great things built into the experience, selecting your own knife, drinking beer from a horn, getting a Birthday gift and card.
I would highly recommend Mjølner for a special dining experience.

This was my 2nd time dining here & it was for my best friend's birthday (1st time it was for mine). Everything was just exceptional yet again. We booked for the Monday feature 1kg Tomahawk steak. It was outstanding! I didn't eat all day so I could eat as much of that delicious steak. Boy was it delicious! Such a great dining experience & will be back for more. Do yourself a favour & come to Mjolner.

Disappointing to say the least. It was my husbands birthday a party of 3. We waited 20 mins for our drinks the bar waitress was rude and then we went upstairs for dinner. The managing host Nick was very personable however it unfortunately continued to go downhill we had a table of 4 behind us skulling shots through rolled up magazines/brochures of some description dropping the f bomb constantly, yelling and carrying on, to top it off we ordered different meals and they all had the same earthy background flavour which we concluded tasted like fridge taint. Needless to say we didn't stay for dessert and $259 later we left completely disgusted and feeling ripped off!

We went to Mjolner for our 12y anniversary.
We had a bit of fun finding the restaurant as the entrance is just a big wooden door with a hammer on it.
Upper level is the restaurant, lower level is the bar.
We started in the bar where the staff were very friendly and skilled in pulling cocktails on fire!
Your beer comes in a big horn which is a great novelty.
In the restaurant was a little noisy but kept the energy levels up.
We started off with a complimentary shot of a delicious mix of beer, vermouth and maple syrup.
After placing our orders we then chose from an assortment of gorgeous hilt knives for our carving pleasure.
Food was amazing.
"Best beef I have ever had" my self proclaimed meat expert partner declared.
Dessert was an amazing flaming dish of their spin on the bomb Alaska.
Great experience from start to finish.
We will definately be returning and recommending Mjolner to our friends.
