3 of us ordered drinks and food... Drinks arrived as usual... 2 preparations arrived and were told the 3rd was on it's way (we only got two hands, right)... Then the server had to tell us that they did not have the 3rd preparation available......Two people eating and the third watching... I feel really sorry for the server as she had to be the messenger... the manager simply said: "I don't know what to say"...More

Wow this place is awful! Dirty. No service. Unwelcoming. I cannot comment on food or drinks as after waiting 10 minutes for one of the many waiters propping up the place to serve me, I walked out. Worst I have ever experienced. Not sure how...they are still open.More

We arrived on Friday 25th September 2020 at 19h00; we were a party of five. Our table was geat, the entertainment was a guitarist singing lovely songs. Our drinks order was placed and arrived at 19h15a and we placed our food order. All good so...far. At 20h00 we enquired as to how long the food would be as my mother in law, 78 years old was getting hungry. We were told the food will be at our table shortly. We continued to ask where our food was and we were continually told our food was on the way. At 21h30, we aske the manager wher the food was and she confirmed that our food had not been prepared yet. We paid our drinks bill and left after having been at Vikings for two and a half hours. We eventually went to MacDonalds for supper. Many tables had left before us having experienced the same lies and lack of service. DO NOT GO TO VIKINGS.More

Having visited Viking Seafood Restaurant on a previous visit to Mosel Bay we went looking forward to a nice meal. It was mid afternoon when we arrived and as we walked towards the entrance we could see a member of staff sat on a low...ledge. She made no eye contact and did not greet us. In fact she didn’t get up until we’d walked past her and her sigh was audible. She followed us to the table and my friend asked if they had any “specials”. She simply said “no” and started wiping the table. We then asked for the Wi-fi code as we were expecting an important call from the UK. I’d already found the network on my mobile phone and just required the password. “We don’t have Wi-fi “ snapped the waitress. Her attitude was appalling and rather than put up with her rudeness we decided to leave. This was such a shame as this lady really let down the restaurant. It’s not even as if she was busy, there was only one other family at a table. There are many restaurants in Mossel Bay and so I won’t be returning to this restaurant in future.More

My wife wanted het snook braid on the coals. She couldn't have it that way. Yes, you can get you smoek braaied if it's part of a platter, but not if ordered on it't own. Then only grilled of fried. They do all other line...fish on the braai??? Go figure. Also the Calamari burger MAIN is served with....wait for it...BUGGER ALL. Sides are extra??? Also, previous time I visited specifically asked for my fish not to be over-cooked. It was. Oh AND prices are up. The snoek episode was the last. I am a local and I will never visit again.More

We enjoyed our visit here, from the open braai to the cosy setting. The meals we ordered were well prepared and tasty, except for the vegetables that seemed a bit stale. Prices were reasonable and they have a full bar with a limited wine selection....The pub area was a bit noisy on our visit but this could be an exception on that particular day. All in all a nice place to visit. The service was efficient and friendly.More

Our table had 3 meals. 1 - Chicken schnitzel: Tasted like low quality cheap I&J schnitzel, bought frozen at the local supermarket. 2 - Seafood Pizza: The pizza base is just awful taste like old bread. So all the pizzas would be terrible. 3 -...Calamari: Raw and chewy. Worst Calamari ever. All my guests were so disappointed. Will never come here again. Please Vikings stop selling food stick to beverages instead.More

I don't know if there is a proper chef. Calamari was undone. Pizza base tasted old. Schnitzel tasted like it was a frozen I&J schnitzels.

The wooden benches and tables around the open fire/ grill in the center reminded me a bit of a German beergarden. I enjoyed the open fire a lot but some of us felt disturbed when the wind/smoke turned towards them. You can choose between grilled...or fried calamari heads, rings or strips. The grilled heads were good. You can also order hake, sole, burger, meat or pizza. Local draft beer and a choice of wines complemented the menu.More

Enjoyed our meal and the service was good! Did not wait long for our food and it was fresh and warm. The cold drinks help to cool down on a hot day. Inside the tent it was hot and it would be nice if they...put on water sprinklers to cool every one down. It was just to hot to stay longer and order desert.More

Terrible. Way over priced for what we received. Over cooked, bad service, bad neighborhood and very dated restaurant. Only accept cash so they don’t have to pay taxes.
