Description: 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

Garlic bread in Tallinn was different than I have known before. they are not grilled but fried, this one better tasted good but beside all breads Porgu's was the best. With drinking mead, listening good music you can have great time at there. Also the stuff was so friendly, good humored. If I were living in Tallinn Porgu would be... More

Really cool place. Great local beer list. The farmhouse on tap is great. Food is a little pricey but the soup and salad we had were large servings and tasty.

Visited the Porgu after reading the TripAdvisor comments. It didn't look too promising from the outside (just a beer barrel hanging over the entrance) but we ventured down the stone steps and into the cellar.. The list of beers on the menu is overwhelming and would take weeks to drink through The food was great and describing it as bar... More

Really nice restaurant! The staff of our hostel recommended this for us. It's always nice to eat in locals favorite places. Delicious food and cheap too! The atmosphere in Porgu was really calming and relaxing. Service wasn't so good, waitress didn't smile at all.. Still this place is worth to trying!!

If you're into tasting non-mainstream beers and don't want to pay with a kidney or a limb, this is the place to go. A huge variety of beers at a reasonable price, plus the snacks are tasty. And last but not least, there's hardly any mobile connection down in the cellar ("Põrgu" means "Hell", so it figures, right?).

The owner of the apartment we rented recommened this local restaurant Its just away from the other old town places but easy to find. The menu selection is limited but the food was great. I had the pork chop and the wife had the venison steak. What thoroughly impressed me was the beer selection. I love "good" beer and there... More

Still sitting in Porgu writing my reviews of Tallinn before we head to the ferry to return to Helsinki. Followed previous TA advice and thought this would be a good place to chill out for a couple of hours, and they were right. Great selection of beers from all over Europe, Belhaven on tap from Scotland and Old Engine Oil... More

Great value for money. The beer menu is huge, and the food it’s amazing. There aren't many dishes to choose from, but we ate three of them and they were all delicious. They also served dark/white bread with the meal. Love the atmosphere, very medieval! Overall a great experience in Tallinn!

Below street level and very cavernous, this place will keep you supplied with a huge choice of beers both on tap and bottles. In fact the problem is where to start. We had food to go along side, some tasty pub type snacks which were very tasty and good value for money. Service was particularly good, we did plan on... More

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
