“Tallinn's finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

So far the best restaurant I have been to in Tallinn - and I've been to a few great ones! The service was incredibly good, clearly the process is very well planned as everything worked like a dream from the moment we arrived. Everyone spoke excellent English and I loved the musicians playing classical music by the entrance. It is a fine dining restaurant so it isn't quite as relaxed and casual but not too stiff either. And I really do have to admire how smooth and professional the service was!

Not the cheapest one in town but I'd say it's worth it. Me and my partner both had 3 courses (pelmenis as starters, beef fillet and venison fillet as mains and Baked Alaska as dessert) and those with a couple of drinks & coffee were about 135 €.

Will definitely be going back, and highly recommend for couples as well as business lunches/dinners.

Dear Tripadvisor’s pinsoyfi

With this „reply-possibility“ on Tripadvisor I would like to quickly thank you on behalf the entire team of the Restaurant Tchaikovsky (Kitchen & Service) for the time you have taken out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts regarding your recent dining experience at our Restaurant, which is part of the Hotel Telegraaf here in Tallinn.

Fabulous that you had a great time and I also thought it was very interesting to read your other reviews on Tripadvisor and how we compared to other good restaurants here in our beautiful hanseatic city.

Thank you for dropping us a line as to when next you will be requiring a table at the Restaurant Tchaikowsky (and a possible reservation at the Hotel Telegraaf); we are looking forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future !

With our best wishes,

Irmela Heinsius

“Good place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Excellent service, the food was perfect, and the restaurant as well. Not the cheapest restaurant in town, but definitely worth it. We all ordered three dishes and everything was super.
One of the best in Tallinn!

Lovely atmosphere, professional service, and excellent food. The classical musicians at dinner, a trio, were wonderful!

“Starting 2014 in style...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Booked into the hotel Telegraaf restaurant tschaikovsky for New Years Eve dinner. Superb dining experience. Attentive and efficient professional service. We choose to deviate from the recommended wine accompanying each course, instead the sommelier tailored proposals to our specific wishes - spot on. The food was a perfectly harmonised menu from beginning to end. The gala dinner was underpinned with delightful classical musical accompaniment from a chamber trio and an up- and coming operatic soloist. All in all a great evening!

“A fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

It is a very nice restaurant: wonderful cuisine, service and lavish interior, even the way they arrange napkins is wonderful: they are black and white and like swans. I had dinner there twice and both of them were very special and delicious! As I stayed in the hotel - Telegraph (which is also fantastic) I had breakfasts there too - delicious as well, great variety and quality and also very beautiful! So I liked it a lot!
