“Good Ukranian food.”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Lovely place, easy to find. Hearty food, very reasonable prices. Excellent borsh! One of the best I've ever had in a restaurant. Overall a very good choice outside the Old Town of Tallinn.

“Fun place, good food”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Odessa offers Ukrainian food and is good, but the most fun thing to do there is sit at one of the grill tables and order something from the Lava Stone section of the menu. Then you and your friends can sit and cook your own dinner at your table. It's fun if you're not too hungry and you've got some time to sit and eat. If not, they've got a varied menu and their other main dishes are also tasty. For me, Odessa (especially the grill seciton) was fun to visit once and have the experience, but unless you really want Ukrainian food, for better food at a better price go upstairs to the Kompott restaurant, which is housed in the same building. Also, the menu isn't written in English unless they've updated that recently so you will need either an Estonian or Russian speaker in your party or the waiter to read it to you.

“Delicious food and nice surrounding”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

Of course, you can try all kinds of Ukrainian dishes, such as borscht or borsch (in Ukrainian: борщ) or rosolnyk, vinigret salad, cabbage rolls, varenyky or potato pancakes. But you can also have a grillparty (braai) indoors, around a table where you can grill meet in a special place inside your table. The meat is fresh and delicious, veggies and side dishes awesome. Go and try. Excellent place.

“Very good Ukrainian food”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

Odessa is quite a new place in Tallinn - if´m not mistaken, it opened in 2010 or so. The place is nice and the food is very good.

Odessa offers (as you may guess by name:) Ukrainian food. Their Kiev chicken is one of the best I ´ve tried in Tallinn, I also likes very much mushroom-staffed potatoes and spicy eggplant. From the main course menu, salmon and lamb were very good.

The service and stuff are OK. Once we had a rather long (actually, too long) waiting until waitress came to take our order. We were really thinking about leaving. Stuff speaks OK English, but I´ve heard they have troubles with Russian (there´re lot of Russian tourist in Tallinn).

The place is located no exactly in the city centre - it´s right opposite Tallinn University and a half way from the Old Town to Kadriorg. It´s about 15-20 minutes walk from the Old Town, or some minutes ride by bus (there´re plenty of them) or trams no 1 and 3 (trams in Tallinn aren´t the best option - they are old and often quite dirty).

The negative side is - they don´t have menu in English! I´ve seen poor tourists struggling over a menu in Estonian. Luckily the staff was able to translate. And - oh yeah, seems like their web-site is only in Estonian as well.

The price-rage in average. Not too high and acceptable for a quality you get.

In general in´s a good value and dining option in Tallinn. Lovely place with delicious food.
