“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

When you must have your stake in Tallinn, this is a good option. Pricey. Service is different... only by non English speaking men. But again, good steak.

“Great food, terrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

A very expensive steak house in Tallinn Old Town. A 600g steak would have been nearly £50. We settled for an Aberdeen Angus beefburger instead. I have to admit that the burger was probably the best I have ever had but the waiter was so incredibly surly that we left as soon as we had finished. This was the only bad service that we experienced in our four days in Tallinn. Everybody else was incredibly helpful and friendly.

“Really great steaks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

So, this is probably the best place in Tallinn to eat a steak. Goodwin also make good soups, salads etc., but steaks is what makes this place really special. Yeah, their prices are a bit high, but if you take their location (old town renting rates are high) and the fact that they use high quality Australian meat - prices become quite adequate. And food is the strongest point of this place - service is average (sometimes not even friendly), so you better not go there with your new girl unless you want them to ruin your mood. So it's a good place to hang out with your friends.
All in all, I highly recommend this place. Any meat lover will enjoy his/her visit.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I took some guests to the Goodwin steak house in the Old City of Tallinn.
We ordered filet mignon steaks (gr).
The good side: The steak is cooked to perfection.
The Jazz music I like a lot.

The bad side: This will set you back 25 €.... for just the steak.
If you want something with it, let's say French Fries, it is another 4 to 5€. For that you get 6 french fries.
If you want some salad it is another 4 to 5€.
The service is moderate at best.

All in all, this is my last visit. For this amount of money there are plenty of places where you can eat better and get a lot more food.

“Very good steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I've been there twice both times I had the perfect cooked steak with sidedish and sauce of your own choice. There was no Gorgonzola sauce in which could made my visit perfect though. But overall a very good steakhouse.
