We enjoyed a fantastic meal at Tchaikovsky whilst staying at the Hotel Telegraf on a family city break. Toomas our waiter was attentive without being intrusive, and made some brilliant recommendations to guide our choices. The roasted venison tenderloin was stunning and the entire meal rivalled any Michelin starred restaurant we've visited in the UK. It's a lovely setting for... More

Excellent food, wine and atmosphere. Room to improve on service and special diets. Starting from the entrance to the beautifully set tables and live classical music, we expected food and service to match. We had the 6-course degustation menu. Out of the six courses, five delighted us with their taste and the wine combinations. The one course, tomato soup with... More

Service was excellent felt that staff was top of situation every single minute. We had menu with wines and every bite was like in heaven. Not only tasting good but also details were in a big role on plaiting. Please book in advance because seems that restaurant is fully booked at least weekends and tourist season.

We had the 4-course menu which was well balanced and original. The cook used local produce especially berries and seeds in interesting compositions. The recommended wines were excellent.

I went for a romantic dinner with my wife. We had a reservation, but as nobody stays attentive, we had to wait a lot at the entrance and nobody came, which led us to ask service from the hotel itself. No big deal. It's a mix of Russian and French cuisine. Very elaborated dishes. In fact, it's like to be... More

My spouse and I had a bad experience with this place. Service was ok and quick. The surroundings were nice, beautifully decorated. But. The food wasn't what we expected and certainly not to the level for this kind of a place. Blinis were dry and tasteless. I had catfish and it was simply a huge disappointment. Fish wasn't well cooked.... More

We visited the place after reading the several reviews online. The experience is fantastic very quiet and the food is amazing. The live music remind you of an opera scene. The food is tasty I would recommend that you select Ala carte eventough the two sampling options are amazing. The beef tartar is a must and the soups. The culinary... More

I had an absolutely wonderful experience here. The six course menu was innovative and satisfying, and the waiter (Norman) was an absolute delight. Price is a little steep but it is worth the quality.

Had dinner with friends and loved it! Excellent food and a lovely staff! Absolutely worth visiting. We had starters, main courses and a lovely dessert. Also the wine (french riesling) and vodka (grey goose) was tasty. If you wan't an culinary experience, try this!

Thank 745tiinaj
