Went for dinner at the end of a week's stay in Tallinn as was hoping for something special but the place should be avoided at all costs. Food is average and overly expensive. They "greeted" us with glasses of champagne which turned out to cost 17€ each...totally unrequested. Service has a lot of pretence but is actually quite amateuristic with... More

We stayed at the Telegraaf and so eating here was a must. It is a beautiful, very romantic place. The presentation was gorgeous and the service excellent. The food, so so. Even for my partner with eastern european roots, the food was not worth all the hype, especially given the wide range of choices available in Tallin. However, the wine... More

We visited on a night when the string quartet were not playing: thankfully. On the times we had walked past the restaurant, I found myself thinking that I would not like to sit in there as the music (thought gorgeous) was far too loud for pleasant dinner conversation. Music aside, the food was delicious. Each dish was a masterpiece and... More

I went here solo for lunch. Dinner looked to be quite romantic and pricey. The setting, both inside and out, is incredibly beautiful. It's tucked away on a quiet side street off the main square. The patio is decorated with flowers and subtle hints of nature. Inside is Russian opulence. Even if you sit outside make sure to explore the... More

This restaurant belongs to the Telegraaf Hotel. It is decorated in classical style creating a very nice and romantic atmosphere. The service is excellent. There was a violin trio playing the well known classics. The menu offers good choices and the food quality was good.

I was a bit worried when we booked since some of the TA reviews seemed to suggest some unwelcome excesses. But we found everything about this luxury restaurant tasteful, even understated except maybe for the décor. The service was very professional and the food (pelmeny and tuna fillet in our case) both well-presented and without reproach. One of two Michelin... More

The pelmeni were good and solid hearty food, but I found the duck rather overpowering and too rich. My partner's crab salad had about 1 tsp of crab and mostly anything but crab. It was an experience, but to be honest I preferred the simplicity of Sfaar.

An amazing selection of vodka. Get the waiter to guide you through the vodka menu, order some blinis and enjoy the sumptuous surroundings and excellent service. A little luxury in your life is never a bad thing...
