“So much more than we expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

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!

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Lovely restaurant hidden at a back of a cafe style frontage.

We had chosen Mix based on its positive TA reviews although were a little concerned when we walked past as it does appear to be a cafe from the front. We had a look at the menu which looked delicious and spotted the restaurant area at the back. I do wonder if they have a problem for 'walk in customers' as you might discount Mix on first impressions.

Luckily for us we didn't discount otherwise we would have missed a fabulous meal with great service. Would highly recommend the Steak Tartar and Carpaccio to start as well as the duck and the venison mains. Everything was beautifully presented. My partner made a comment about a food dislike and the waiter amended the canapé without any fuss. Restaurant itself is quite small and you may need to book at busier times.

A great find and well done TA

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Tempura prawn starter was fantastically presented. I ordered crispy duck as a main which was a complete misnomer as when it arrived there was nothing crispy about it. I sent that back and had mushroom risotto which was very good. 2 courses for 2 people including wine €74. Recommended.

“Great food, great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Went here after having gone to Tchaikovski restaurant the night before, although very different the restaurant stood up well against the likes of the best restaurant in Tallinn. The menu and place are very different, modern with an Eurasian twist to it. We had the carpaccio and the shrimp tempura salad to start with, the presentation was second to none and the taste and service also excellent. For main course I had the fillet minon with pumpkin risotto on a bed of roasted vegetables this was very nice and the meat was tender and excellently cooked. My mother had crispy duck this wasn't what we expected as when the duck came it was not crispy, she was so disappointed she had to send the meal back (however this was not a problem as the waiter immediately replaced the meal free of charge) after the duck incident, we ordered the mushroom risotto which was excellent full of flavour and rich. We drank the Pinot Grigio which seemed to go very well with the meal.

Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone, it was a great night out with great food and a great atmosphere. Would definitely go back again.

“Worth every euro spent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Thanks to Groupon, that we found Mix and without Groupon we would have not chosen the seven course meal with carefully chosen wines we had. Excellent, thank you! Best meal I've had for a very long time. Thanks! I also appreciate how they chose to serve our son so that he didn'n need to feel himself lonely even though he didn't take the same amount of meals we had. Excellent!
