Believe it or not, but it’s good to be in „Pórgu“. An unbelievably large selection of draught beers and their bottled cousins, unearthly delicious à la carte dishes and an almost holy atmosphere. All this makes „Pórgu“ seem like a paradise on earth, where you can feel free and let yourself be carried away by tasting pleasure. *pórgu in english - hell

The best ribs ever

having eaten really well for the past three days in Tallinn we started to wonder if we'd just got lucky, then stumbled across porgu and realised our luck had not run out yet. After climbing down the very steep dark steps into an empty restaurant (we arrived at midday) into a gothic scene, we did... read more

Small group with different tastes all well catered for at reasonable prices. Book if you want to guarantee a table at busy times. Local and imported beer available, long wine list. Food well presented and filling.

Pörgu continues as one of my absolute favourite beer houses in Tallinn. Pörgu offers excellent and large beer menu, and also food is very good indeed. I eat venison minsed meat stake and it was more than tasty. Service is very wellcoming and fast. I can warmly recommend Pörgu!

I visited this place for a first time with my friends and we all loved it. Everything was perfect. Service was very good and food very tasty. Athmosphere was different but in a good way. Definately we will come back there.

We had a lovely time here and thoroughly enjoyed our meals, although in my opinion, the vegetables needed a little more cooking and more of them. Our waitress was lovely and friendly and didn't bat an eyelid when I managed to break a wine glass...full of wine! She cleared it up quickly without fuss and for that I was grateful.... More

Põrgu means Hell in estonian. Not sure where they took the name... But place is nice medieval pub. It is located in cellar so it is nice and cool in summer. The variety of beets is promised to be best in town and no more words is necessary :)

Wow, 14 beers on tap and 116 bottles on the menu! Porgu brew their own and you have to taste it, strong but good! We didn't eat here but plenty of other people were and seemed to be enjoying the food.

Despite being a great selection of beers, the bar staff member was very rude upon arrival. There is no excuse for this as we were just a couple looking to buy a beer, and the gentlemen behind the bar made us feel like he just wanted our money, rather than our repeat custom - its a shame because I had...
