This is much better than what you might expect from a small town's small hotel's restaurant. We had a three course meal on one night and just an appetizer and a dessert the other night. Everything is of high quality, well prepared, and presented with care. It's very good value for money. I can recommend the mushroom quiche, the chicken... More

Nice cafeteria and restaurant in an Art Noveau style house (also hotel), a walking distance away from the city center, in the beginning of pictoresque and historical Karlova area. Sometimes you could feel a little lonely there - not much visiters usually.

This place comes straight out of a fairytale. The ladies are lovely and helpfull, the room was big, clean and very nice decorated. The breakfast was a great start of the day. Added bonus is a private carpark at the back of theire beautifull wooden building and the city is within ten miutes walk. Definitely a top choice!

This could have been a more positive review but it's not. The food took a lot of time to arrive. When it finally did arrive then it tasted ok, not bad, but then we noticed somebody's hair inside the food. We pointed it out to a waitress. She asked if this means we don't want to eat it. Indeed we... More

There are not so many places in Tartu where you can enjoy such pleasant atmosphere and good food. If you want something quiet, discrete and special, you have to go there. Good place to surprise someone.

The correct name of this restaurant is Villa Margaretha; our party of four ate here in late May - it was the best meal of our three day stay in Tartu; the food was well cooked and rather inexpensive - good value for money. Three negatives; first - the wine list should have a sparkling wine in between the sweet/semi-sweet... More

There is not a huge menu, but there is a good variety of things. The place is opened until 23.00. We spent some 10€/meal (2 people). There is a moderate vegetarian choice. Local beer available. I liked the salmon salad and the soups. The potatoes and mushrooms where not really my favourite

Already mentioned in my review of hotel. This is a refined spot well away from the crowds in the center of Tartu.

We stayed at the wonderful hotel, and popped in for a late-night dessert and wine, and it was a very pleasant experience. Good ice cream!
