We stayed in Tartu just one night, and found Holm from the reviews on TripAdvisor. What a fantastic meal in lovely surroundings and with excellent staff. Romet was super, and explained every dish beautifully. Extra little treats like the amuse bouche, delicious bread and bon...bons to finish all added to the wonderful experience. We chose 3 courses each from the a la carte menu, and our total bill was just over 100 euros. The carpaccio was superb, as were all the dishes. Amazing. Thank you so much.More

I was there only for dinners. My friend recommended it for a lunch. Surprisingly good menu. We took starters and main course. We took only local food what was tasty and nicely presented. Maybe it was too much for a lunch, but plates were emptied....We enjoyed sitting on outside terrace.More

I give the worst rating, because. in principle, it was not possible to try anything in the restaurant; it was simply closed, as we were told at the reception that the holidays, in my opinion, in a hotel where 4 stars, in principle, this should...not have happened.

One of the best restaurants in Tartu and excellent service. Each course was presented beautifully with great wine pairings. If you're staying at the hotel, breakfast is also served here and this restaurant certainly makes sure breakfast is your most anticipated meal of the day....Well deserved 5 stars for both the food and the service.More

I was thinking four or five but the service pushed it over the top. Wonderful service - we had wondered about the level of English we would be hit with and learning Estonian seems a reach but most places were good - these folks were...excellent. Food was fairly elegant and very, very good to excellent. Anything grilled. Great bar. Great wine list. Bread was to die for. Hope to return.More

Visited whilst passing through Tartu, our visit also coinciding with my birthday. Opted for the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Excellent, interesting food - the second course, the Järveotsa quail, black truffle & asparagus, and the third, the sea bass, potato-dill puree and Jerusalem...artichoke, probably had the edge over the others for us, but really they were all fantastic dishes. The wine pairings were imaginative, and we particularly liked the Coteaux D'Aix-en-Provence Rouge AOC 2012, Château Vignelaure, France. Service was friendly and engaging. All round, a very good/outstanding experience, and excellent value for money.More
