I went here on a few occasions while in Tallinn. They had a really nice beer selection, and were really friendly. I felt relaxed and not under scrutiny as a solo foreigner. Like most places in Tallinn the servers were very friendly and helpful. I found this to be one of my favorite post or pre dinner spots. It is... More

Super delicious dinner for very little money. The beer menu is great, and so is the food as well. Big plus for the menu: not too many dishes to choose from and everything sound delicious. The price is also really low, most of the main courses are around 10€. I had the chicken course and my friend had pork, both... More

A vast range of beers, including an in-house one (it's very hoppy). Knowledge of the young lady waitress was excellent. Good basement atmosphere.

Amazing underground bar, with a fantastic selection of beers. We didn't try the food, but their own dark beer was one of the best I tried in Tallinn.

Not easy to find, it's a cellar accessed from a side alley but worth the effort. They have the largest range of beers on draught I've ever seen outside of a real ale festival, and pages of bottled beers as well. It's beautifully decorated and staff are great - a lot of UK bar staff would struggle to describe the... More

I'm very glad we went in here. They have a fantastic range of local craft beers on tap and some interesting local food. I had an elkburger - that's a first for me. It's in a old cellar with a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. I'll be back!

Once again the number of good reviews and above prompted us to try this restaurant on our second night. Entrance to Porgu is into a small lane way with a closed door but luckily the light was illuminated on their menu board otherwise we may not have attempted to open the door. But down some steep stairs into a cellar... More

This place definitely has character. Some really nice beers. The salmon was great. Not impressed by the soup though.

We loved the meat at Porgu. Simple but Delicious! The place have a nice story and we thought it was well-executed. The first courses were almost too large and did I already mentioned the meat...Yum! We drank wine but the place is definitely great for beer lovers, they have beer or two to choose from.
