Had a lunch menu. Food was not great, but not bad too. Perhaps I didn't choose the best option from the menu... Portions rather small but it was a lunch menu so I guess it was fair. Good service. Very nice atmosphere. I would give it another try over a dinner!

I loved the food there. Prices are not the cheapest but it doesn't matter since the food is excellent. I had lamb as a maincourse and a salmon starter. Both were superb! Cocktails also good!

Food and sweets were excellent. Service was very good and we had a very nice waiter. MEKK served homemade bread and an excellent apertizer. Book table in advance

Our hotel booked us in at the last minute....and on a Saturday night....... The food is really excellent - starters and in particular my main course of belly of pork were exceptional. The black bread is divine! Service charming.... Thoroughly recommend dinner at Mekk.

We were staying in the Savoy Boutique Hotel, and after a long day of walking and sightseeing in Tallinn, we were too tired to walk into town again, and decided to take the in-house restaurant. What a good move that was! The dinner was better than anything we could have hoped for elsewhere in the city. Inspired, Estonian cuisine with... More

The decoration is perfect for a stylish dinner in this restaurant. Service is friendly and professional. The starters were excellent: salmon tasty and visually attractive. For main dish we had a potato dish in a tomato sauce and other vegetables, a vegetarian dish. Quite good! The deserts with berries looked and tasted good. Wine recommended excellent. Everything reasonable priced compared... More

The food and service was so nice I had to come twice during a short stay. For lunch I had smoked salmon and a lovely potato salad. Later in the evening a small but oh so nice herbcrusted rack of lamb with veggies and crispy pork skin. Don't miss if you are in the area and like good and stylish... More
