To my surprise, this restaurant at a hotel is a true gem. I chose to dine here because of the chef Vlad Djatsuk praised by food critics. The six-course special included three starters, two main courses and a dessert. An absolutely wonderful evening! Most of the featured dishes can be found at the menu - I would strongly recommend the... More

Have been here numerous times over the years. Every visit to Tallinn calls for at least one dinner at Tchaikovsky. Everything from food to service to the decor and setting are splendid. Even when fully packed, it never gets too noisy. The wild mushroom pelmeni are especially good. Wine selection could be a bit more varied, though. It's not a... More

We stayed at the hotel so had supper here one night. The food we ordered was very well cooked but served cold and vegetables were almost raw - not al dente. Good amuse bouches and bread basket and reasonable wine list. Service was attentive and helpful. But having cold dishes does destroy much of the flavour of what were very... More

Unique experience with food! You need certainly a reservation. We visit with big group 7 people, but I recommend to visit this restaurant as couple to get experience with food, because this is not a place for talking, just for enjoying food and each other. There was live music. The service was perfect even there was working young staff, expecting... More

Though the venue declares its commitment to Russian/French cuisine classic traditions you will find very innovative dishes - a combination of local North European catch and veggies ideally integrated into Russian hits accompanied with French style dressings. The wine selection seems to be limited (except champagne) and pricey. The service was perfect! Thank you.

This is one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in Tallinn, so I had high expectations. The experience turned out to be perfect. :) We got the restaurant only after 9pm, meaning we only had 2 hours before the restaurant had to close. Luckily the staff was very flexible and managed to serve us three courses without us... More

I was back and this time we went for the Taster Menu and the matching wine menu. It was a fabulous meal and the combination of the tastes were really wonderful. Great matching wines as well. The service was swift and really friendly and attentive. The food is Russian at its base but with massive inspirations from all around. I... More

We wisited Tsaikovski during Tallinn Restaurant Week and had lunch there. All experience was simply wonderful. The service, food and atmosphere. I would like to point out specially the starter: pelmeni of seafood with celery and tarragon - mussel sauce. We really didn't expect those to taste so good :) All the tastes in that small dish were perfect. Main... More
