This restaurant is excellent in every way. The piano trio and rain on the glass roof only added to the appeal. The other diners were having the six course price fixed menu and were obviously veterans of this special place. The only superior meal we had in the Baltics was Vincent's in Riga.

We had rain on the sunroof which added to the ambiance. Although formally laid, the meal and service were tasteful and tasty. There were other waiters who were a little theatrical but our waitress was understated and timed the service well. I gave four stars rather than 5 as there was a few draughts and other guests required blankets over their shoulders.

Were at this restaurant in early May, when staying at the hotel Telegraph. Efficient and polite waiters, decent kitchen (ordered lobster soup with sugar peas, saffron cream and roasted pigeon fillet and halibut), original dessert. The only negative - expensive for Tallinn. Recommend

Dear Tor89,
Thank you also for your kind review on the Hotel Telegraaf’s Restaurant Tchaikovsky !
I must admit, English not being my mother tongue either, that I was initially somewhat baffled by the heading of this review: the word „pathetic“ took me a bit aback.
Yet as the read continued I was so pleased to understand you did enjoy your visit and had a great time and are recommending it! Thank you !

Thank you again, dear Tor89, for your recent patronage both of the Hotel Telegraaf and the Restaurant Tchaikovsky and if and when your travel plans bring you back to Estonia it would be our pleasure indeed to be able to welcome you back to Tallinn’s Old Town; to the Hotel Telegraaf.

With our very best wishes,

Irmela Heinsius
General Manager

It had nice local and Russian cuisine touch. Food was nice but a bit overpriced. Wine list was quite nice (overpriced as in Estonia usual and I had to send 2 bottles of wine back what they accepted as with older red wines it happens). For Estonia had several nice small innovations for surprise.
