I really enjoyed the location - very funky decor. The service was good and the food equally as nice. Good value for money.

A great experience throughout. We had a reservation and were immediately seated and handed over the menus. Even though they did not have an specific children's menu, the kitchen was very accommodating and they came out with a simple pasta, finely minced, for our one and a half year old toddler. Everything we had was very tasty and portions were... More

The second time for lunch in the elegant restaurant. This time we ate on the terrace soups and they were very tasty. The service also excellent. Worth visiting at least ship tourists, as the route goes next to the harbor.

We were here in with a group of friends for a late lunch (or early dinner). The food was really tasty starter soup (artichoke, goat cheese) was delicious as well as the main fish. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. The decor is pleasing, simple and modern.

The restaurant is in the Rotermann neighbourhood in Tallinn, surrounded by fresh, interesting architecture. The food is wonderfully tasty, with a surprising twist of spices. The personnel are friendly and helpful. Overall an enjoyable evening.

If you want a nice lunch, or a nice tapas evening with good wines and a fantastic service this is the place to be. Nice little square just next to the old city, nice terrace by sunny weather. And : if you like seabass prepared "al sal" (in salt crust) this is a fantastic dish here (18 euro). One of... More

The nicest thing about this restaurant is the opportunity to chill out and watch people passing by thanks to the huge windows. In the menu there is a big selection of tapas (that I shall try maybe next time). I was not that impressed by the food. I took a fancy sounding roasted vegetables and halloumi salad with mixed leaf... More

My last trip to Tallinn (maybe had 100 so far) really took me by surprise. I thought I had been eating most places in Tallinn and they all more or less looked and tasted the same. Last night epic dinner at NOA was followed up by a very nice meal. Obviously it didn't live up to NOA, but I still... More

We chose this place for business dinner by recommendation and a good choice it was. The starters (tapas) were something between good and very good but my main course (meat, metshirvi) was excellent, although I did not like the add-on forest mushrooms that much. Service was the excellent part of this experience and that really made our night there!
