Considering the price list some work should be done on quality and food serving. We had lamb fillet which is not so often on Estonian restaurant menus and ten points for that! But fillet was not well cleaned off tissues, so hard to enjoy the dish. Wine sauce was on the plate surrounding mashed potatoes, so complicated to get sauce... More

Went there with high hopes because I had read some great reviews, but I was quite disappointed with the food. Service was nice though and the place is lounge-type and relaxed. Starter bruschettas were fine but nothing special. For mains we had veel filee and minced lamb. Veel had burned veggies with it, but filee was very nice though. Lamb... More

The cafe was recommended by a local citizen and we must admit we really enjoyed our evening there. Nice small restaurant with good service and delicious food. I had the rabbit in red wine sauce at a price of 9.20 Euro my husband tried the salmon with vegetables in a very tasty mustard sauce at a price of 9.30 Euro... More

From the sophisticated decor to the amazingly fresh and beautifully conceived food, Noir is a favourite. The lunch menus are outstanding value, with dinners quite a bit pricier. Still, a wonderful place to visit at any time to experience very close to perfection.

Loved the salmon with broccoli and glaze, with salad. If you are looking for healthy, sophisticated food in a relaxed but chic setting, this is the place for you in Tartu! Well-priced and enjoyable atmosphere. Cool outdoor patio too. Check out the stones with writing. This is an original and fun place.

Cafe Noir is a favourite lunch venue for some of my colleagues at our Tartu office so I joined them there twice this week. I can understand why. There is a special menu of starter, main and dessert that changes daily and is served quickly. Better still, it's tasty, fresh and incredibly reasonably priced. I enjoyed the whole 3 courses... More
