Myself and my partner visited Tchaikovsky for dinner earlier this week whilst staying in Tallinn. We didn't have much knowledge of the local restaurants in the old town and decided to book a table purely from checking out the competitively priced and interesting menu displayed out in the street. At this point I would like to say to what standards... More

We have eaten at Tchaikovsky twice, several years apart. Both were memorable pleasant experiences. This time we chose the "Tasting Menu" and asked for a modification changing out pork for duck, and the kitchen agreed. It was splendid! We also chose the accompanying wine selections, and they were a perfect match, and not unreasonable in cost. The room is elegant... More

Thank you Tchaikovsky - I had a wonderful evening! We were welcomed and shown the way to our table (booked in advance) by a friendly waiter. Beautiful music was played (live)! I heard many of my favourite melodies. Original and beautiful design of meals. I was very happy with all the dishes I have ordered. The lobster soup was just... More

There are only a two times in my life where I consider the dinner I had "an event." This was one of them. The meal starting with appetizer was one of the best I have ever experienced. If you even get a chance, this place is special.

by reputation one of Tallin's finest restaurants, it is well located in the Hotel Telegraaf in the old town, and is pretty formal by Estonian standards. The food is based on traditional Russian ideas and ingredients but modernised and given up,to date treatments. They brought us some delicious homemade nutty crisp bread and dips, followed by a lobster and tuna... More

No space between tables. Good food but taking advantage of the average regional dumbness about international dishes & ingredients. Really overpriced. I have been there several times since the opening - last time was not worthy at all.Almost becoming like VAPIANO in terms of crowd.......

Its one of the best restaurants in the Tallinn - superb food and service. Could be little pricy, but you don't go to such places every day, so it's ok.

This place is a perfect treat for you if you are on a trip to Tallinn. The staff are exceptional and the wine and food is second to none.
