Description: Believe it or not, but it’s good to be in „Pórgu“. An unbelievably large selection of draught beers and their bottled cousins, unearthly delicious à la carte dishes and an almost holy atmosphere. All this makes „Pórgu“ seem like a paradise on earth, where you can feel free and let yourself be carried away by tasting pleasure. *pórgu in english - hell

“Good beer- great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Went in three times. The first just for a drink, but stayed for two hours the beer was that good! The two meals we had were the best we had in Tallinn. The pork chop (now known by my wife as the best pork chop in the world!!) was large and very tasty. The second time we ate there I had the Filet Mignon which was lovely, but I kept eyeing my wifes Pork Chop wishing I'd ordered that instead. Highly recommended .I just wish this place was closer to home!

“Fantastic food and great beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I've been to Porgu 4 times so far and the food, beer and service has always been great.
The last time at Porgu was with a group of work mates and they really appreciated my recommendation for Porgu.
Another Estonian in the group was impressed that a rare but excellent make of Estonian beer was available on tap in Porgu.
One very minor note is that they are not open on a Sunday (otherwise I would have visited more) and that the kitchen closes quiet a bit earlier than the bar (closed by 10:30pm on last visit) and this fact is not advertised on their web site.

“Heaps of Character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is down a steep set of stone steps into a dungeon like place. It is very cool restaurant, the food was superb and service also great. Beer list is huge and it is easily best food price to quality ratio in old town!

“Great service, sturdy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We had a Borsh soup for starters (really good, a big enough bowl to share), some bread (baked in Porgu, very tasty) and Duck breast and pork as main courses (really really tasty). They offer an excellent variety of beers and even a couple of nice sider. The food was great but the service was even better. Would recommend.

Excellent place for beer lovers. Price is better than average Tallinn Old town pubs and food was very good as well.
