The food was warmed up and amount of food was terrible, despite of hight prise. We had 15 person international group. I booked and paid also something forward. Actually, it was embarrasing, amount of food and kvality. Food cost was 30 EUR per person, plus pretty expencive drinks.

We visited Tallinn as a day excursion from Helsinki. It happened to be a Baltic-cold April day and after five or so hours taking in the key sightseeing venues we were pretty tired and extremely cold. As we got close to the ferry for our return sailing we spotted the Admiral about five minutes walk from the Ferry a Terminal.... More

My wife and I have been in Tallinn for several weeks and were looking for something different from the Old City scene. We were delighted with dinner at the Admiral, docked just outside the city walls and either walking distance or an inexpensive cab ride from just about anywhere. Now, for full transparency, for most of the dinner we were... More

This is one of the worst restaurants I have been. However I can't review the food because we never got it. Our party of 5 waited for the food for 1h 40mins but it never came. The service was basically nonexistent. The interior was not comfortable nor stylish. The seats were unsteady old folding chairs in the upper deck where... More

This restaurant on a boat docked in the harbor was indeed interesting. We were greeted with a complementary shot of pepper vodka and an anchovy and olive amuse bouche which was good. I had a mixed platter that promised caviar but did not see the caviar. My husband's lamb soup was just okay. Our friend had an enormous serving of... More

Used to be a really nice place and good food, but unfortunately the quality has gone down since the last time I visited Tallinn. Atmosphere has not changed. They used to serve nice serbian food, but this time I was rather disappointed. Meet was overcooked. Service has also gone down. They used to serve house shots. Ship feels a bit... More

This restaurant is very charming and the food is delicious. I really appreciate the ambiance and the original decoration of the boat. The waiters were very polite and helpful. This restaurant represents an alternative to the classic Estonian restaurant and I definitely recommend to go there should you wish to spend a nice evening with friends or with your family!!!
