Excellent cheap food, very filling and tasty. Beer was cheap for Tallinn standards and the atmosphere was good. Was busy around 7pm, but you may be able to share one of the large tables. Staff spoke good English. Good place for a quick and cheap meal.

At the Kompressor you eat pancakes - and the portions are so big that we had to come twice - first for a main course which was so big that it left no room for dessert - and the second time just to have the dessert pancakes. And each course is only around 5 EUR. Bargain!

Pancake place on Rataskaevu street - meals are very big and tasty, it was hard to finish even one - and reasonably priced around 5 euro. Hard to get in sometimes, but well worth it. There is also soup, beer and cider, hot drinks.

We had a wholesome meal at the Kompressor Restaurant in Tallinn. We went for pancakes but ended up just ordering soup which came with bread. Approx 3 Euros per bowl! Pancakes delivered to other customers were huge and under 5 Euros! Beers and ciders on tap. Décor is very rustic and basic, but food great value, especially if you have... More

It's closed on a Monday, so be sure to time your visit. With service at the bar, decent beer (Alan Banks fans will be able to check out the beer that was on the beer map that led him to Tallinn). Really good food, extensive selection of pancakes and a few beers to choose from. Decently priced and a laid... More

I love this place, and have eaten in there on my three trips to Tallinn over an 8 year period. It is friendly, clean, cheerful and tasty... not to mention cheap. When all the pubs on this street sell beer for almost 5EUR, you can get one in here for less than 3EUR and a pancake that will fill you... More

You can't go wrong with this one. Very popular among locals and increasingly tourists. Fair prices and English not a problem. Can get a bit busy, we had to wait quite a bit for our food to arrive, though yummy.

I liked the size of the portions, also a very good choice of the pancakes. Great place for breakfast. Only the atmosphere and design of the place could be a bit better.

Wonderful place, sort of industrial chic interior. Menu majors on filled pancakes. I had cheese & pepperoni, others had cheese & tomato, pepperoni. Basically a large (16" diameter?) pancake, covered with filling, folded in four. €4.90, and you'll be stuffed after. NOTE: this is one of the few places in Tallinn where you order & pay at the counter. Order,... More

They said that you can only eat one pancake in this place. They were right! You can choose between saltry or sweet and the pancakes cost less than 5 euros. And you will be full after, trust me.
