Stylish place. I liked service, interior and cakes with coffee. Menu is about to be closer to Vegan and Bio if you now what I mean. If you are in Pänu - visit, recommended.

The service is just plain rude in this place and the food is not worth that kind of experience by any means.

We went for breakfast, the food was good, but portions are on the smaller side, so if hungry then consider taking more than one dish. We had the avocado toast and "sõrnik". The service was okay, but since the cafe was very busy then waiters...were a bit lost.More

We heard about fresh fish served here and decided to try. Me and my husband had different fish dishes. Even though both dishes were nicely cooked and tasty, servings were quite small and we left hungry. Restaurant is quite expensive as well.

Each visit here I wonder how small quickly one can be satisfied with real food. They use only clean local farm food and fish, update menu often, orchestrate the tastes well and create occasion menus (e.g. today they have special 4-couse offer for Estonian day...of Independence). I love both music choice and artworks here! Saada tagasisidet Ajalugu Salvestatud KogukondMore

Absolutely lovely place! From the moment you sat down, I felt like I was back at home in Melbourne hipster places! The girls were very attentive and friendly, food came out quickly and was delicious! I will be definitely back next time!

We got a late morning start on our drive from Tallinn to Riga and wanted to stop for lunch. Approaching Parnu, I called up Trip Advisor and having nothing else as our guide, we decided to give Mahedik and try. We were very glad we...did. It was cool and bit rainy outside, so the cozy warmth of the relaxed atmosphere and comfy décor got us ready to eat. And the menu emphasizing fresh, local foods prepared with care made it difficult for us to choose. Everything looked so good. We each got a coffee – they call it “slow coffee” – which I guess means not fast food coffee. Whatever the meaning, it had plenty of flavor and no bitterness, as did the cappuccino. They thoughtfully provided small bites of excellent fruited cakes to complimentary “amuse bouche” to munch as we decided on our meal. We shared most of our food and everything was quite tasty. The wide range of flavors and textures in the local cheese plate with homemade jam hit the spot as a starter. The asparagus vinaigrette over granola with ricotta, sprouts and micro greens seemed like an odd combination on the written page, but with its seeds and nuts and delicious dressing, the only way to describe it is a festival of textures and flavors. The tagliatelle with anchovies, olives, and tomatoes could have been too salty, given the ingredients, but had a lively zip instead and the pasta came perfectly al dente. The lamb patty, served "naked" as I like it, came with yoghurt sauce and tomato salad on the side. A perfect combination! I knew from dining in Tallinn that Estonians have a way with tomatoes, but this dish makes it apparent that, at least at Mahedik, they have a way with lamb too – juicy, “lamby” and perfectly seasoned. The yoghurt sauce was like tzatziki, but not garlicky and a bit creamier. Quite fine too. For dessert, we shared the cottage cheese pastry. From the name, it sounded a bit odd, but it looked like a “coffee cake” and was just right as a pre-road trip pick me up; not too sweet, a bit lemony, and with a crunchy crumb crust on top. Fully satisfied, we hit the road glad we stopped at Mahedik and agreeing with the motto on their Trip Advisor entry: “If it's growing in the fields in the morning, we'll have it on the table by lunch time!”More

Very good selection of cakes. Cosy atmosphere and good service. It was a pity we already had eaten so we couldn’t try out the whole menu. Coffee ☕️ was amazing as well!
