We've had a nice evening with my boyfriend. Between meals we've got two nice surprises from kitchen cheaf. Food and service was excellent. Thanks to Matias,he was very friendly and helpful while serving our table. Great live classic music (Tchaikovsky, of course-)) outside in the cosy nicely decorated backyard. Lovely atmosphere...It's quite expensive, but it's definitely worth to pay. Recommend

I don't understand the great reviews. Breakfast was included with our room. When we came to the front table the young man pointed at the back of the restaurant and said there was a table for two at the couch. No seating us like almost every restaurant in the world. There was a table, with crumbs all over it and... More

Tchaikovsky is a gourmet restaurant that has won many awards; understandably so. The food is a fusion of French and Russian. The scallop dish was beautiful to look at with pieces of lobster as well as a lobster/saffron sauce, topped with red caviar and pea sprouts! Wonderful!

We ordered our drink but he keep the bottle on the bar table, that's fine as long as he could monitor us... More

We went to Tchaikovsy for my husband's birthday. Everything about it was amazingly beautiful and every visual detail was perfect. There was a live trio performing soft music. They played Happy Birthday for my husband after the waitress told them that it was his birthday. The food was presented in a way that sometimes seemed too beautiful to eat. It... More

The dishes offered are elegant, and some are of Russian origin. I enjoyed a salad, which was a culinary work of art. It not only tasted marvelous, but it was beautiful to behold! We arrived at the restaurant before it opened and one of the staff members invited us in to watch him fashion a white linen napkin into a... More

I have read mixed review about Restaurant Tchaikovsky so I was not sure what I would expect. The meal hands down was wonderful and definitely the best meal I had in Tallinn. That is the thing about dining, everyone have different sets of criteria. From start to finish my meal was superb. The kitchen was able to tweak the recipes... More

I had lunch at the Summer Terrace today, with my adult daughter and son. We ate scallops with lobster as main course and had strawberries with additions as deserts. The food was excellent in every aspect. However, the restaurant is rated as one of the top restaurants in Estonia, and consequently everything should be top notch.I ordered a bottle of... More

This is a restaurant that is trying to position itself as a luxurious high end destination..super location with a typical baroque theme..and everything to match the positioning is done by the book..but with no charm and no real expertise...everything is over done and at some point bothering. Good wine and Beverages list,but a really disappointing menu..average food that lacks taste... More
