“Perfect evening”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Came across Domenic by chance and liked the look of the menu and the restaurant. Was able to get a lovely candle lit table on walk in (Saturday night) and we both had a terrific 2 course meal. Rabbit and then duck was delicious as was the whitefish tartar and the halibut. Unfortunately the monkfish carpaccio was off but plenty of choice on the menu. The wine list is very good and prices keen for a restaurant of this type, nice to see top flight producers like Isole & Olena on the list. Service was efficient, knowledgable and friendly and amuse bouche were served between courses. The price was good for food and surroundings of this quality and would be happy to recommend it.

“Beautiful surroundings and beautiful food”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We are lucky to have eaten out in most of Tallinn's finest restaurants and this is my favourite. The decor is beautiful as is the food. It is good value for money in comparison to some of the other restaurants in Tallinn. Sadly it lets itself down on one front only and that is the service. On our first visit our waitress was cold, unfriendly and inattentive. On our second visit, our waiter was friendly but again inattentive. We waited about 15 minutes after we ordered our wine for him to pour it and it wasn't the case that they were understaffed. On the second visit the piano playing was a little intrusive and not entirely to our taste. We will however return and hope to receive better service because otherwise, it is perfect.

“Vitello tonnato was delicious”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Dominic is opposite Hotel Telegraaf, a very unobtrusive restaurant which you can easily miss, if you don´t know what to look for. I chose vitello tonnato as a snack before leaving Tallinn with a chocolate dessert.
I have to pay this restaurant a visit in dinner time, it sure is worth a visit.

“Go there. Have a dinner if you're at Tallinn”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Located in the Old town, this restaurant is I would say easily in top 5 at Tallinn. We didn't make a reservation before we went there but we got the table very easy. Maybe it was because we went there to have dinner and we were kind early.. I think we were there at 16:15 or something.

We ordered as appetizer some rabbit liver mousse and grilled rabbit with forest mushrooms. The liver was perfectly done, just a hint of red in there. We ordered some red wine with our main course but we had different courses. I had grilled duck fillet and duck leg and one of us took beef tenderloin and stewed beef cheek. Surprisingly they found a wine that fitted perfectly with both! Duck fillet was perfect, but duck leg was maybe a little bit overcooked.

All and all we got a three-course meal in a reasonable price and a very atmospheric experience. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to try cigar room because they were just changing the cigar importer and didn't have any good cigars.
