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

We had a great evening, an extraordinary culinary experience. Our host named Kertu was most professional and friendly. So besides the excellent meal we actually learned a lot from her. Thanks so much for an unforgettable dinner.

Went to Hõlm with my wife for a romantic dinner on a Saturday evening. We both ordered the tasting menu and paired wines. The food was outstanding and well worth the price. I even felt I was underpaying for it once the check came. The...service was top class and the interior is very nice. PS. The best bread I have ever had came from Hõlm! Overall one of the best restaurant experiences me and my wife have had and we already booked a table for a second try.More

Welcoming was very warm and helpful. Nice atmosphere and view. Vine recommended for food were very fine ones. Size of a la cart menu main dish (duck) was rather great portion specially for females. The chef welcoming soup teaser was tasteful. As we had also...appetizer then the size of portions together did not leave any space for desert. Score is 4 because in Tartu you can find better duck.More

The food we had was very nice, but there were no vegan options in the menu at all, which is a bit sad. Hopefully its about to change!

Delicious food with good pairing with wine. First course (blini) was good but so solid that second course (lamb) including two beef was even too much for me. But that is often the case with senior people like us. Relaxed atmosphere and very good customer...service. Everything was nice and pleasant.More
