My friend and I had the most lovely and warm welcome from their host Denis as we made our way to our table accompanied by sounds of applause and live and authentic Swedish music. We were then served by Liz who was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our meal (chicken) was an absolute delight. An must have experience for anyone visiting Stockholm <3

Our first time in Aifur and a good choice . You are welcomed in by a blow of a horn and sit at long tables. Excellent atmosphere and the food choice was rustic but very tasty. Not the place for a romantic dinner but great fun

A ‘must do’ place for a fabulous, noisy evening amongst tourists and locals. Great musicians playing traditional music downed out by the general hubbub and Viking horn announcement of new guests joining the throng! Recipes are allegedly tradition but don’t expect gourmet food. Mead is the house drink and even finds its way into the beer! The service is fun and friendly.
Cloakroom near the door and two unisex toilets (not enough).
Around KEP50 per head.
Recommended.
TOP TIP
You MUST book in advance as the place is always stuffed!

Let it first be known that Aifur Krog is *not* the first time I have been to a Viking-themed bar/restaurant in Scandinavia, but may it also be known that this was decidedly the best I had been to (and we had been to quite a good one before); we liked it so much that we went there three times just to drink mead, mead, and more mead up in the bar. They have excellent varieties. I think we may have eaten food, it seemed like everyone else was eating food, but having drank that much mead, I cannot recall what we ate... which means yes, indeedy, we were having THAT MUCH FUN!

It is basically like being transported onto the set of Game of Thrones. Full immersion Viking experience, photos don't begin to catch the ambiance, very little mars the illusion of being in some other time.

You should go. It's kitschy, but then again, it's also tastefully kitschy. The music is great. The staff is fun. The architecture and furnishings are tops (lots of earth tones, runes, wood, and wool). It's like a Renaissance Faire with food and drink. Go and be merry in Stockholm!

This place was a lot of fun! The hosts are all in period costume and playing a role. When our table was ready, a horn sounded and we were announced as we were escorted to our shared table. We laughed and joked with our tablemates, and the staff was very attentive. They have the biggest selection of mead I have ever seen. The food was so good!!! We also had the chance to don viking helmets and weapons. Warning to anyone with poor vision...it is a bit dark in the dining room as there was no electricity in the viking days.
