Definitely the best mojito in town. You can enjoy Tallinn city’s most amazing view and enjoy an even more incredible sunset.

Great spot for dinner with a great view of the city. There are various options (two tasting menus at €75 and €90 and an a la carte menu). We went for the €75 tasting menu which has 4 courses (plus a bunch of amuses bouche)...- it was plenty for us and not a single dish disappointed. The bread and trio of butters was seriously tasty (so much so that we had 2 lots of it!). The first dish was trout two ways (cured and smoked) - really nice to have them side by side so that you can compare the two. Second was monkfish - cooked to perfection and with a delightful reduction. Followed by beef tenderloin - perfectly cooked (medium rare) with a pea purée. And raspberry chocolate mousse for dessert. I was expecting to be disappointed by this place but it really delivered. Every dish was on point. And the maple old fashioneds were good too! Not a bad wine list either. Would return.More

When we walked in there, we didn't feel very welcome. Wanted to book a table but they said that there is no need and when we arrived the first thing they asked us was if we have a reservation?!

The food was amazing, the service terrible. The drinks we wanted for around 20 minutes to Get, and they never once Asked if we wanted more og try something new. Old plates and glasses was left until the last course. We had the tasting menu...so 5 courses. Its good food but not worth the price when the service is terrible.More

When you enter the premises you’ll be thinking that you have come to an upscale restaurant. However from the very beginning the service lacks of attention. Ordering your first drinks takes forever to get them. They were served not on a tray as you would...expect in a five star hotel. Dining room is nice but from there it’s a downhill all the way to the end of the meal. The tasting menu consists of an amouse bouche which is some sort of sweet. First starter, langoustine and shrimp is a pretentious try of fine dining. Weird flavour profile and badly cooked seafood. Second starter, the ravioli, is over cooked and texture is odd as it is filled with duck liver pate and served with too strong flavoured vegetable consommé. Turbot, the first main is over cooked and as an added bonus the whole dish is slimy and has an odd squid ink paste on top. The second main, tenderloin, is cooked well although the other components in the dish are totally unnecessary as they don’t accompany the dish at all. As a grande finale the dessert has probably been standing in the room temperature for a while as the raspberry mousse has a skin on it. The service lacks attention throughout the service. Some dishes were served when my partner was in a toilet. The whole restaurant is a pretentious take of trying to be a fancy restaurant. As being said it looks fancy but don’t expect any thrills in here.More

Lovely place and amazing view. They were a bit understaffed when we were there so we had to wait a little while, but the staff were lovely so it didn’t really matter!

We had before-dinner drinks at the bar and enjoyed the breathtaking views over the city - and the views were breathtaking even on cloudy weather. Our Gins and Tonic were very bespoke and among the most enjoyable I've ever had. The bartender was very friendly...and made us feel special. (Well, we must have been special because we were the only customers there at the time.) :-)More

I had heard wonderful stories about this place, and it was quite fabulous. All food was wonderful (langoustines, quail, sweetbread, etc) but the true hit of the evening was risotto, by far the best we had ever tasted. I suggest you take one extra starter...instead of dessert. Their desserts are good, of course, but their savory menu is far more interesting. And did I mention the view? And the service? The bar was nice too, but after such restaurant experience it was quite ordinary.More
