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

Dropped into Porgu - almost literally as entry to this medieval cellar bar is by a vertiginous stone staircase! - for refreshments as it opened at midday. We were warmly received and enjoyed making our choice of beer from the wide range of draft and bottle beers available. The local Smoked Porter was both delicious and restorative - I'm assured...

Stopped here with my wife for an evening pint after reading good reviews. It was very quiet on the night we went and definitely wasn't expecting to descend into a smart dungeon! The array of beer on offer was surprising although not for the faint-hearted.... nearly all of them were above 5% ABV! An excellent experience and will be spending... More

The place is located in a basement of a very old building and has the largest selection of beers I saw in Tallinn so far. All beers have their country of origin marked in the menu. The food costs above average (up to 5 EUR for a soup, most mains starting north of 10 EUR), but is definitely very good... More

We came here for lunch and some beers and could happily have stayed all day! The food was delicious and the beer menu is seriously impressive! Our hostess was very helpful recommending beers and bringing us samples to try. Will definitely return

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!!
