We have had several good lunches and dinners at Aed since 2008, and to an unbeatable price. And apparently so have many others, which has made it rise to be #2 of almost 200 restaurants in Tallinn.
Unfortunately, now it is exactly worth what you spend, which is not much.
Every singel portion used to be a piece of art with interesting and delicious combinations of various ingredients. Now they look OK, nothing more.
The soups, we tasted fishsoup and creamy broccoli soup, tasted nothing. The duck used to be very good, now it was ok but nothing special. My "mutton cutlet" was a hamburger beef of minced meet. The creme brulee with strawberries was good and so was the chocolate cake.
The first times we visited they had white tables cloths, then they change the concept to be more lounge like and they have something ruglike in dark colours on the tables. Before sitting down I brushed off bread / cork crumbs from the table.
Thank you for several good meals in the past, sorry to see this development!

We liked the food a lot - it was tasty and fresh and well done. One minus: No cheese plate as a dessert on the list. The kitchen made us one - thanks! - but the plate could be developed a little for the next printing of the menu. The service was a little cold, but the atmosphere in the room was warm. Nicely done interors. The framed lcd-monitors showing art worked well. Good idea. We'll be back.

I went to this restaurant after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. I had goat cheese, rabbit and estonian beer. It was a good experience. The food was reasonable, an interesting old building with large wooden beams on the inside, nice staff and atmosphere. But I can't imagine why one this would be the best restaurant in Tallinn. It is not the best possible food, and it is not the cheapest either. I would say it is just decent for its price.

Food was excellent and there was lots of it. Service was a bit cold, but that seems to be case in all of the restaurants. I would go here again.

This is a very comfortably and beautifully appointed little restaurant in the Old Town. There are wooden beams across the ceiling and old pictures on the walls.
The service is friendly albeit a little slow.
The food is very good although it will not win any stars in the Guide Michelin.
I had a salad with grilled salmon, which was very fresh and well dressed. It contained aside from lettuce, cherry onions, bean sprout, spring peas and other vegetables.
For the main course I had the rabbit filet in some kind of wine sauce with vegetables enclosed in phillo dough, which was a little strange but it tasted good.
The wine list is small but adequate containing some unusual labels.
On balance a pleasant experience.
