Porgu restaurant has already won TripAdvisor awards in 2013 and 2014, but still deserves another review.

The food was nothing less than superb, the only thing that dropped this rating from 5 stars to 4 was the long wait. Nevertheless well worth the money, try the pork chop for main course, that was splendid.

A must for beer lovers, the food was resonably priced and tasted excellent. The only thing that lets it down is the sharp acoustics, they could do with softening it up with some fabrics

The place has an impressive selection of beers, food is delicious and always presented well. The place is deep in a cellar and really a nice mixture of medieval "darkness" and modern, in the summer the place is nice and cool, and in the winter it´s just the perfect place to spend a cold evening. The service is always quick... More

We always, always, always visit Porgu when we're in Tallinn - why, because it's as good as it gets! The food is fabulous, well presented and the portion good. Highly recommend the duck, the chicken and the broad beans - and the garlic bread, you'll be vampire / mosquito free for a good while afterwards. Keep up the excellent work!

Very attentive and friendly staff. Beautiful food and decor! I would highly recommend this place to all. Beers were amazing also. I had the olives for starter and salmon for main. Very fresh and tasty. The atmosphere was nice.

Food is really good. I have eaten a duck and a rabbit dish here, both were delicious. The beer selection is also great! Atmosphere is nice but mind the front stairs, they are really steep.

We came based on the many good reviews on Trip Advisor and a quick look at the many excellent choices on the menu--and it didn't disappoint. The best restaurants are generally quirky spots in a cellar or alleyway, as Porgu is. It is quaint, but has the medieval feel and as a result is charming. We had the antipasti plate,... More

I've been here with two friends of mine to enjoy some good time together. The place is amazing, we could choose between a huge list of beers, we also ordered something to eat and it was very good. In my personal opinion, it was cheap, too.
