Location and contact

Gloria Wine Cellar’s Restaurant is the perfect choice for those who appreciate the combination of good wine and excellent food in a unique atmosphere under the protective wall of the Tallinn Old Town. You can find everything made of grapes in the thousands of bottles maturing gracefully on the shelves of the wine cellar. The combination of wine, expert service, candle light, fireplaces, a varied à la carte menu, and classical wine snacks is excellent for warming your soul on cold winter nights, whereas in summer the old vaults help you cool down from the heat of the sun. Under the quidance of Gloria Wine Cellar chefs, who are bringing together the best combinations of European and Estonian food,

You might not know this place is hidden away here - and even if you knew, you might still miss it as it’s not that obvious when you walk in through the door that there’s a good little restaurant hidden here. Although mainly a wine...More

Liked starter, was nor impressed with main course and desert was ok. May be I had higher expectations and that is why I was a little bit disappointed.

We arrived on Friday night, at 9. 30 p.m., very excited to share the impressions after a wonderful concert. The menu was still outside, so we thought, we could have some wine and a little something to go with it, like we've had so many...More

Wine cellar restaurant with excellent food: we had grilled goat cheese with vegetables, chicken liver and duck breast. You have to visit Gloria Wine cellar to feel the atmosphere (historic building, fireplace, service etc.) We highly recommend this (romantic) restaurant.

Excellent fine dining experience - enough is probably said when mentioning that this is a wine cellar (literally, the steps from the streetside front door take you down to the basement of a historic old town building) that also offers delicious food. A wide variety...More
