We were staying at The Telegraaf Hotel next door and were looking for a convenient restaurant within a short lurch. So glad we chose Ribe. Tallinn has many atmospheric, dark and traditional restaurants Serving hearty Estonian food, but Ribe is definitely a cut above them. Its light and modern... read more

We just dropped in and were lucky to get a table on saturday night. The service was easy going, the surprise from the kitchen was a good dish, the fish dishes were strong in taste but delicious, the meat wonderful but the dark bread was the winner. And the butter with salt and popped buckwheat was divine! The choclate soufflé... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner at Ribe. It was good value and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We'd certainly be happy to go again if we were in Tallinn. We'd read that the restaurant gave a modern twist to traditional Estonian dishes. We felt the balance was more to the modern than the traditional. The restaurant clearly... More

Fancy restaurant nicely located. Positively short menu. Nice and pro staff. Keep-it-simple food with quality ingredients, allthough one of the desserts had like a million things going on at the same time.

Food was good enough, nice atmosphere, polite and helpful staff, but it did not exceeded my expectations. Nothing what could surprise me.

Found this restaurant in the old town Tallinn whilst we visited for the Xmas market. The menu was not too big but everything that we had from the menu was perfectly cooked and presented. This place is definitely fine dining and not the place to eat on a low budget but was well worth the visit as the food and... More

A stunning meal with all the performance I require in fine dining. One of the most memorably delicious meals of my life, with perfectly matched wine. Whilst the dishes were sublime, the company lovely, and the service wonderful, the sea buckthorn tart is the most memorable event of the evening. Definitely worth the price tag.

We've been coming to Ribe ever since our 40th wedding anniversary in 2012 and it still is THE restaurant for finer dining for us. We come to Tallinn for approx twice a year and have been trying other restaurants, of course - and keep returning to Ribe. The menu keeps changing, always maintaining their high standard. The wine list is... More

The service was excellent. Sadly I don't recall the names of our dishes. There were 4 of us 4 of us last time visiting and everyone had different meals. All the first course choices were good, the main courses were small, but delicious. But the desserts were disappointments. Especially the "chocolate cake", which was really dry and tasted like dry...
