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.

The place is really simple. They have several beers from everywhere. We taste the local beer made in the Estonian island. It was a good experience to taste it. The meals (salmon and chicken) were well made. The service is efficient but it did not appear like to chat. In my view they could be friendlier. The bill was about... More

Quite cozy place with a nice and simple atmosphere, good choice of beer. Quite tasty salmon. Service was not very nice - we reserved a table but later some more friends joined us (we did not expect that), so we did not fit to one table. Waiter did not want to give us another table, although there were couple of... More

Porgu was great experience from the start, and we return there every time while in Tallinn. Good choice of local and international beers. Food is basic stuff, but, aaahhh, so tasty! Food made with heart and soul. The chef seems to know what he is doing. Porgu is sort of a cellar- restaurant,quite dark, simple and almost too modest. Perfect... More

I haven't eaten beef in years, I don't care for it and don't like the environmental impact it has on this planet. I am well versed on various foods and know what contains need and what tend to be vegan/vegetarian items. Borscht is one of the fool proof, always a vegetable only soup. Until I went to Tallinn.

Loved the atmosphere and the beer selection at this cool underground restaurant and bar across the street from a church (and hence the name Põrgu means "hell" in Estonian btw). Had a great selection of beers and I also enjoyed some herring, cheese, and black bread. Cool wrought-iron furniture, lighting, and music gave it a medieval atmosphere. Friendly bartenders were...
