Tegelaste Tuba is a very nice, traditional-style restaurant with wooden benches and tables. The food was filling and tasty, the beer (by a Latvian brand which seems to be quite popular in town) refreshing, the service kind, and the music pleasant. It might be odd for today's Estonia that only cash payment is possible, but there is a bank with... More

.. and Saturday morning died out, offering omlet that my girlfriend refused to eat and which my home-made omlet would probably beat any time - and god knows i'm a pretty bad cook. Ah.. no card payment as welll - as the last pub in Estonia probably.

Cosy pub with dark wood paneling. There's a fireplace which I imagine is awesome in the winter. Lots of traditional food options, all dirt cheap. Limited for vegheads like myself but I was quite satisfied with the buckwheat with stem mushrooms and veg. Very good dry ciders on draft. Cash only.

A great place to eat in casual but fun setting. There's indoor and outdoor seating on the deck. The food is awesome. Big quantities, so bring your appetite!

Nice interior, if you sit inside, and nice view, if you sit outside. I suppose it's nothing very special, but the food was ok and priced very reasonably. No problems with English, but cash only.

Nice place for lunch close to the castle. The food was good, but very heavy. Prices are very good. Expect some waiting time for your food.

Saw some negative comments - did not experience any of them. Good service, reasonable English, fast and of good quality. We were lucky, since we could eat outside on the terrace. The menu is not complicated, but with enough variation. It was also quite busy this evening, also locals eating out.

Service is slow and unprofessional ! The bartender bought us really warm beer and when made remark that the beer is warm she offered me an ice-cubes. So disappointment once more!

Beautiful location, cash only is a con, service however is good, especially if you happen to meet Natasha. She always does a little extra. Food is good, however men tend complain about the portions to be a bit small.
