5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Walk down a charming alleyway and you are in a beautiful location for a first class lunch. The food is all beautifully presented, modern chic and tasty too. The other nic surprise was the bill, far less than one would expect for a meal of this standard.

The garden and the atmosphere are nice and the service was pretty good. My primary issue lies with the food. "Tallinn's best rye bread" brought other thoughts to mind than the bread which was served (full of nuts and dried fruit) but perhaps my definition of rye bread is off.

All the dishes that we had were perfect, well cooked and fully flavored! Service was excellent, Maret was very kind, she helped us pick local beers and dishes that matched our taste! She took very good care of us and made our visit perfect! Definitely would recommend this place to anyone.

The restaurant was absolutely phenomenal, but I believe your waiter or waitress has a huge affect on your experience at a restaurant, and our waitress, Marian, made our night magical.

Overall a great dining experience. Had a 3 course meal, everything was delicious and well presented but the steak was clearly the star. One of the best I have eaten for sure.

Dear NORDICUM, Thank you for your harsh and long review. We are very sorry to hear that your expectations were not met and that you did not like our restaurant. As for the empty dining hall, most of our customers like to have their dinner earlier, usually around 19 o'clock. Just to clarify things: we are a safe restaurant, so... More

Excellent fine food, seasonal menu, original dishes with great amount of local components. Elegant interiors, a most romantic dining courtyard in medieval style. Excellent service. Prices are typical for Old Town, 35-50 euro for dinner with beverages.
