Loved the atmosphere and the beer selection at this cool underground restaurant and bar across the street from a church (and hence the name Põrgu means "hell" in Estonian btw). Had a great selection of beers and I also enjoyed some herring, cheese, and black bread. Cool wrought-iron furniture, lighting, and music gave it a medieval atmosphere. Friendly bartenders were...

This place is amazing! Don't let the low price fool you, this place is gourmet. Nice ambiance, good service, you can tell the food it's cooked to order. If I was in Tallinn longer, I would come back and try other things on the menu.

Second visit, still a great restaurant. Lots of beers to choose from tab or bottle. Food is great, only desert ice cream left a bit hoping for more. So choose another desert :)

Relatives suggested Porgu for an after dinner drink, but since we had not eaten much, we ended up having a wonderful dinner here. The service was very friendly. Despite being busy, we never felt rushed, as we chatted for hours. All menu items chosen were excellent, as were the four different beers that we sampled. The underground ambiance was appropriate...

We had heard great things about the food and drink at Põrgu, so we decided to try it out for dinner. The free bread and butter that every Tallinn restaurant gives out was flavourful and excellent! The salad was a bit meh, but the pork ribs more than made up for it! The selection of beers is also unparalleled; we... More

My husband and I visited Porgu on Saturday, July the 12th. We went there 'cause we had been told about the great selection of beers but never in our wildest dreams we expected the food to be so good! My husband had duck, I had deer and both of the dishes were excellent. This must be one of the best... More

Mesmerizing atmosphere, bountiful a la carte menu, nice and friendly staff and .... of course - heavenly selection of beers. For divine experience try the baked pork ribs or fillet mignon with goat cheese - they are my special favorites.

We took a walking tour, in Tallinn and our tour guide recommended this place, which I had remembered from pre-planning with tripadvisor. It was a monday, and quiet with only a couple of other tables occupied - a pleasant surprise given the number of tourists that we had seen on our tour. They have quite an extensive menu, and a...

The food is very good (portions are very large, I prefer them smaller) and they have a very nice menu. Not just the food menu is very good, the beer menu is also incredibly large. The place itself also looks very nice and is located in a great looking cellar. So it's just a great place to sit, relax and... More

Very steeps stairs mark the entrance to this bar and restaurant. A good selection of beers, that the bar tender will let you taste before making your selection. Good service, good beer, and a clean, quiet ambience. No one was eating while we were here, the murmur of hushed conversation conduicive to having another pint and stopping a little longer.
