Wanted to have one cocktail before 8 pm All tables had deserved sign no other customers... lots of staff just waiting and playing with a phone. Definitely felt not welcomed and there was not really free tables in a empty restaurant. But got a narrow seat at a bar and Frosen strawberry margarita was ok

Hi Kirsi, thank you very much for your feedback. I'm very sorry that you did not feel welcomed. We actually did have all the tables reserved last weekend and as they normally arrive between 8-9 pm, we only offer bar seating an hour in advance already. Of course, our hostess should have explained that to you. I hope you will... More

Good fun. Good service and music. Was there on a Thursday night. Get there around 9 or later and make reservations otherwise good luck finding a table if you are a group. Good crowd.

Please read my profile for my biases. As someone who loves vintage and craft cocktails, the Butterfly Lounge was recommended to me on my short stay in Tallinn. I stopped by on a Tuesday night and took a seat at the bar. This is quite different than most of the craft cocktail bars I frequent mainly because it is large... More

Great cocktail bar, often with live entertainment. Can get very busy & cheaper places to drink but can have a great atmosphere

No table service at all. The dish i've ordered(beef tar tar) was horrible. Meat was of a poor quality. Very chewy, dull colour and no flavour. Chef was obviously trying to cover that by adding load of crushed black pepper which was too much !
