Visited Porgu on our last night of 3 day visit. Had a great evening after being well informed about the various beers available by the wonderful Mariu who couldn't have been more helpful. If you are visiting Tallin, Porgu has to be on your list of things to do. thanks again Mariu

Had a great meal in Porgu during our recent trip to Tallinn. The portions are very generous and the taste was great. Can highly recommend the duck. The quality of the food was actually surprising for such a laid back place. Perfect for beer lovers, but there plenty of other options. Friendly and efficient service. Great option for an evening...

Tasty beer (own Esimene Sorts), tasty food and fast service. What else is needed? May be a slightly cleaner WCs.

Clearly cheaper than places around Raekoja square. Wide selection of beers and good food. Craft beers from the tap or bottled. Meals around 10 € and pretty good. If crowded, the echo might bother. Cellar with steep stairs.

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 wonder what to expect, however... 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
