The Gunpowder cellar is a place with a lot of history. But If we leave the long Tartu history aside, then the restaurant has been there from Soviet times, and it looks quite different from the other places. I can not say "special" and "fine"...More

A huge place that offers local dishes, some were good, a choice of bears and fun atmosphere. Nice for groups, less for couples.

Had a lunch with Family. Have to say this place has an amazing atmosphere, delicious food, great choice of beer and wine (even for cocktail lovers), very attentive staff and beautiful decoration. If You are in Tartu you must visit this cellar.

We went for dinner on Sunday evening. The interior looks good and boasts beer experience. Unfortunately we were pretty much only customers and the athmospere reminded from funetals. Also the beer selection was very limited considering the theme of the tesyaurant. The first beer turned...More

Wonderful old gun powder store now a bar and restaurant around the grounds of the university. It has atmosphere, great food and wine, beer if you prefer, all at student prices. The traditional style food was delicious. A must do.
