Good basic Eatery

Excellent pancakes and lots of choice of flavours/fillings. There is a huge sign to show you need to go to the bar for service - this is not a five star establishment, as the prices show. Good honest food at great prices - they were 'surprised ' by our request for a Bottle of wine, rather than a... read more

Friendly staff is the only positive thing about this *canteen*, this is not a restaurant. Basic interior. Basic food. Basic pancakes. Dairy and shrimp soup with dill was just a joke. Thanks, but no thanks. One time visit is more than enough.

We had the bacon and smoked cheese and the chicken and feta pancakes. The batter was amazing (the actual pancake) but the fillings had their issues. The bacon was much better than the chicken that had a slightly weird taste but we thought there could have been more bacon in the pancake. One side was completely empty. The feta wasn't... More

Good value. They don't do service on the tables so you have to go to the bar and order there. It was nice to have that pancake with ham and cheese sauce. Also the beer is good. But my advice is just go if you are really hungry.

Usually, when visiting somewhere new, I strive to visit different eateries, to sample as many different places as possible. Kompressor was worth breaking these self-imposed dining criteria. Serving traditional pancakes, both sweet and savoury, as well as other tasty items, such as cheese balls, the food was freshly prepared and really good value that suited any time of the day....

After being studiously ignored by two waitresses whilst we sat at a table for 15 minutes, we left. Too many great places and people inTallin to waste time waiting for rude wait staff.

Pancakes. Lots and lots of pancakes with many, many different sweet and savoury fillings. First of all you find a table, which can sometimes be difficult as it's always busy. A very good sign. Then choose from the menu what types of pancakes and drinks you want and go up to the counter to order and pay. The staff bring... More

The Kompressor sign is not as visible as PANKOOGIPUBI so watch for that if you're lost! The pancakes are huge! Very delicious and very filling. The 'snacks' are very heavy (cheese balls, fried potato balls, deep fried bread) as are the pancakes, but they are definitely worth the bloated belly! You have to order from the bar, so do not...
