Super location in Rottermani in a pedestrian square between Viru Keskus and the Port. Excellent service - the staff appear knowledgeable and genuinely interested in what they do. Comfortable environment and great food. I'm vegetarian and I can find food I want to eat here rather than just being able to find the 1 thing on the menu that I... More

Great food and best service! The "half spanish" waitress succeeded not only with her wine and food recommendations, but also tips for a cocktail place! We've had the best night in Tallin and it all started with a delicious meal at AlterEgo!

We had a business luch there yesterday and I was really pleased with the food and service. My tuna steak was cooked to perfection and the "crumble" dessert was delicious. Keep up the good work!

We had had drinks on the terrace last summer and now wanted to try food because menu looked so good. And we were not disappointed! Food was really good, good selection of wines and we felt welcome with our baby.

Our menu consisted of bread, a couscous salad, and fish. I'm not a salad person, but the couscous was excellent, and quite filling. The fish was very good too, although I'm not sure what kind it was. Service was great. I can't comment on the prices as I never saw them.
