We chose this place on a bit of a whim, mostly on the reviews on here so didn't really know what to expect. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the evening.
The location on Pikk is perfect for those looking to avoid the crowds. The restaurant looks a little odd from the front as it looks more like a cafe or deli but when you enter the room at the rear it is very well laid out and décor is very nice. It seems to be aimed at the wealthy Russian market and would meet their high standards easily.It is only small with room for a table of 6 and 4/5 table for 2/4, but that is part of its charm.From the start to end we were very well looked after and entertained by our waiter. He was a little nervous at the start but as it was a quite Sunday night by the time we left he was spending a lot of time with our table of 6, recommending wines with each course and giving a little history of the food and drinks on offer.
The food was as near to fine dinning as you can get without having to wear a tux to dinner. Each dish was beautifully presented and introduced, art and theatre, feeding the eyes as much as the stomach and the skill of the chef was undoubted. Flavour and technique were faultless and the wine recommendations were spot on.
6 of us had 3 courses each and all had something different and were all very pleased with our choices, in fact none of us wanted to allow anyone a taste of our dish it was so good!!
Our bill came to €45 per head for 3 courses and 2 bottles of wine and dessert wine followed by a Vanna Tallinn liqueur.
Back in London this meal with drinks in a similar restaurant would easily be £100 plus per head.
I can not recommend this place highly enough, we had a great meal and was mode to feel very welcome, we even got to meet the chef at the end of our meal!
