We stayed in Telegraaf Hotel for 3 nights and we had our last dinner here. Words are too poor to describe how tasteful and how elegant the food was. Pavlova was the best I have ever tasted . The staff was terrific. I strongly recommend it!

Stayed in Telegraf hotel for our anniversary celebration and booked table for 2 just 2 years ago. We ordered Degustation menu, food was pretty nice and service was good and friendly. Portions are not big as in all a la carte restaurants. Prices correspond to restaurant type. Breakfast in restaurant is nice. Despite we ordered a dessert, we got some... More

Tchaikovsky has always been one of our favourite places in Tallinn, however this time we left disappointed with the whole experience. Service was incredibly slow - it took three hours for two courses and coffees! However, staff was attentive and friendly. Food was okay, but not as good as it should be in a place like this. Scallops were tiny.... More

Very romantic setting, food is presented very beautifully. We had the most perfect waitress you can imagine, perfect English, great sense of humour. Wish we had skipped lunch ... Next time will try Menu de Degustation !

Tchaikovsky is the high class rstaurant in Tallinn. The atmosphere is absolut classy. We have been there on a Saturday evening and 3 musicians played classical songs which fit perfectly to the ambience and style of the restaurant. The dishes and choice of drinks have beend outstanding as the whole service. Most likely you need to reserve to get a... More

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
