Overall great place

Personally I wouldn't class this as meditarianian. It's definitely Spanish! However it was good food and service. Classy restaurant with a good selection of food which was lovely. It is more expensive than other places I have eaten but all in all it was really lovely.

We were getting all wet in the rain, decided to stop looking, and entered this restaurant. The place was decorated with dark brown and black colours, looked quite new. The tables were nicely set and the chairs were very comfortable. It was lunchtime and we chose the cheaper menu of 12 euros each. It was still a culinary journey: wines... More

Peacefull athmosphere in the middle of Rotermanni quarter. Clearly the focus is on good food and decent wines. I recommend.

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

I had just returned from working overseas and had made no reservation for Valentine's Night. We turned up impromptu at Alter Ego and the waitress was very helpful in finding us a table when the restaurant was clearly very busy. We have eaten at the restaurant a few times before but not for a couple of years. We were pleased... 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.
