Food here is just ok. We loved the cheese balls but everything else felt like it lacked flavor. The service is good and the place itself is very nice.

Had a good fish dinner with salads and bread for a reasonable price in this windmill restaurant. Very pleasant dinner as a solo diner and came back the next night too! Parking is available.

Love this place. Been here twice now. Food is so good. Decent size portions and well priced. We where served by Merily N. She’s lovely and helpful. Also their bread made on site is already a reason itself to go to Veski.

Had an amazing dinner there with my husband and daughter. This place has free parking and is very family friendly with both indoor and outdoor children playgrounds, so kids won’t get bored. Restaurant is made in the old windmill and combines history and modern luxury,...feels very unusual and interesting. In my opinion, it is must visit in the city! Friendly and caring staff left a hand written good wish on a table, that boosted our good mood from the beginning! There are local traditional dishes in the menu, redesigned and upgraded to fit modern trends, they were beautiful and delicious. Couldn’t imagine a better place to try a soup served in a freshly baked bread for the first time. ☺ We enjoyed our time here very much and wish everyone visiting Kuressaare the same!More

Visited with a larger group. The restaurant is a beautiful place and worth visiting just for a cup of coffee. We tried salads and chicken, food came nicely plated and was very good. At our party of six persons, everyone enjoyed their food. The menu...was clear and with pictures matching what we got. Salads might be a bit small, but they were listed as "appetizers". An option to increase their size might be good idea? All in all, good experience, will visit again!More
