Went in thinking this was a typical pub (albeit with a HUGE selection of beer!)--so our expectations on the food side of things were not high. We were pleasantly surprised to find a cozy, reasonably priced restaurant with OUTSTANDING food! I had the lightly smoked salmon with snow peas and fried cottage cheese and it was terrific. My husband had... More

Duck starter, chicken in a lovely mustard sauce on a bad of mash or Salmon then cake for desert. Food was cooked to perfection and presentation was excellent. Staff were very friendly and the...

Great place to have a beer or two and some food with our friends. Popular place. Try to reserve a table if coming for food on weekend.

Beer lovers paradise! Lovely warm welcome from an attentive English speaking waitress. Food matched the welcome, wholesome, tasty and good size! Garlic bread an interesting twist on usual. Steps down to restaurant may be tricky for some. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Porgu is hidden away not far from the main square and offers a great ale selection and a good standard of food. Its worlds apart in standard from the typical tourist traps on the square and much cheaper. Starter, main and beer for 2 came in at 32 euros. The waitress also deserves a particular mention -incredibly friendly and attentive,... More

Along with 'Hell Hunt' in the Old Town and 'Kochi Aidad' in the harbor, this place is highly recommended for the beer-lovers. It is rather bar-restaurant, a bit more, then traditional pub. Wide range of Estonian and international beers, proper food (big portions), nice desserts (what you would not expect in such place), and even some (small range) descent wines,... More

Porgu is perhaps more of a bar than a restaurant. It has a huge range of beers for sale. However the food on offer was of a restaurant standard and of very generous portions. Food was very reasonably priced (2 starters 2 main meals and a bottle of wine for 49 Euros). The best of the 4 restaurants we visited... More

When a relative of mine came to visit me in Tallinn, we went on a long walk around the town. It was winter-time and soon we were cold, tired and hungry and Põrgu was right on our way. As I had heard some good reviews about it, I suggested to give it a try and we could not be more... More

We found this little gem and had lunch one day, which was excellent. We decided to try it for dinner another night and were not disappointed. Food was great, staff very friendly and the ambience perfect for a relaxed evening. Thoroughly recommend.
