We had a family dinner and the food was awesome. I had a duck fillet and my wife had fillet mignon. Good starters and desserts as well. Service was friendly and the prices were quite cheap. Only con was that the place is very noisy, but I definitely recommend this restaurant.

A cosy cellar pub with a small but delicious food menu. The beer menu extends to 50 or 60 brands from most European countries, and also an extensive collection of local small breweries - at least 10 on tap. Excellent collection of beers, and friendly staff provide a few tastes to encourage you!

When you visit Tallinn and want to eat good food in a place with wide selection of beers, both draught and bottle, this is the place. It is located near Old town. Service was friendly, food was very good and the restaurant itself a bit medieval. Something for everyone :)

Porgu is a cozy restaurant in a cave-like basement serving awesome beers and food. The service was great. The food was fresh and tasty. The beer list is extensive. The waiters are knowledgeable about the beers.

If you are looking for a fancy restaurant to have an "elegant" meal, this probably is not your place. However, if you are looking for a restaurant that serves tasty, traditional food for a reasonable price, this is a good choice. I ordered the grilled pork neck chop with fried potatoes, marinated onions and beetroot sauce. It was delicious and... More

If you are in Tallinn make sure you visit this pub/restaurant. Not only does it serve great beer it also serves great food. The standard of the food was way above what you would expect to get in a pub. The soups, which appear to be a speciality in Tallinn, were excellent. The mains also were also fantastic but special...

Porgy has a great local beer selection, the food was very good and the price was right. The staff spoke perfect english and helped choose from the wide beer selection. The taverna style decor was inviting and we enjoyed a break from the sun in this cool atmosphere.

If you love good beer this is the place for you. A wide selection of local craft brewed beer combined with a small menu makes this a perfect haunt for those looking to taste and drink in the local Estonian food culture.

Porgu is high on the list of good restaurants in Tallinn and really is a good place to visit especially for dinner. Try starting with the Fish soup, really really outstanding. For the mains I had Duck fillet with pepper risotto, zucchini salad and herb butter, also outstanding. Looking for some place special, this is it. Reasonably priced, good beer,... More

Through an old, heavy wooden door, you have to climb down some very steep stairs down to the cellar. There you can taste mainly very good local craft beers. It's dark in the room, almost like a few hundred years ago. You can eat as well.

Believe it or not, but it’s good to be in „Pórgu“. An unbelievably large selection of draught beers and their bottled cousins, unearthly delicious à la carte dishes and an almost holy atmosphere. All this makes „Pórgu“ seem like a paradise on earth, where you can feel free and let yourself be carried away by tasting pleasure. *pórgu in english - hell
