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

Phenomenal!

Porgu is a restaurant/pub that is hidden in a basement like setting, you think as you walk down the stairwell you would need a secret password to get in - luckily you don't.

it's a damp cave with torturous acoustics, one you probably can't stand to be in much longer than an hour, but that's all the time you need to have an excellent beer and some of Põrgu's amazing food. Service is utilitarian, sometimes even crossing the line to good. Most amazing is that it's one of the saviors of the Old... More

It's a small little room, in a cave-like setting, and it's so cool! The beer menu is pretty big for such a small space, with a lot of Estonian beer. The food menu is also large, the things we got were all delicious. The service was also very good, highly recommended.

Nice small cellar restaurant near Niguliste (St. Nicholas) Church. We had very good fillet mignon and good duck with excellent dark smoke beer. Good choice of tap beers with affordable pricing. Highly recommended.

This Place is a little bit hard to find and the first feeling is that this is only a beer bar. The beer selection is really great so I would say that this is a heaven for all beer lovers. The food was a positive surprise, also the kids loved it (to be mentionded that the duck was absolutely perfect).... More

A very cool cellar bar with a nice comfortable feel to it. Tables are generally held for those eating until about 9pm ish, but we stood near the bar and enjoyed the atmosphere. Seems to be a popular place for people to return to...don't fancy the steps after a few beers though!!! Friendly and helpful staff, clear menus, not fancy,... More
