We ordered baltic herring and trout starters, beef tenderloin and duck mains, and I had the goats cheese and pear cake dessert. We had Estonian fruit wines to drink. We also had 3 month old baby in a pram. We visited at 4.30pm on a monday in February. We turned up without booking, we were lucky - I saw people arrive at 5.30 and be turned away. Diners were a mixture of locals and tourists. Staff all spoke English well.

The food is exactly what I wanted; good quality Estonian menu (Russian, Nordic, German influences), friendly polite staff and extremely good value. The prices are low, even by Estonian standards.

The goats cheese and pear cake was excellent and the beef cooked perfectly.
Very happy customer. Service charge was not included either, that is left to the discretion of the diner.

Food was very good. But we had problems with our table. Time to time it got windy. A draft maybe from the outer wall? Not sure. So it was bit hard to enjoy the dinner. Maybe I'll visit again, but in the summertime

Went here with friends having read positive reviews on here. Booked online prior to the trip with no problem. We each tried something different, I had some food envy as my friend chose the beef main course which was fantastic, but my chicken dish with mushrooms was good - although not mind blowing.
The goats cheese and pear cake for dessert was gorgeous and the service was attentive and friendly. We happily sat, chatting and eating and drinking without feeling pressured despite a fairly busy restaurant. A very positive experience and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Tallinn - good convenient location too, in the old town without the trappings of being a cartoon like medieval restaurant!!
The best surprise was the bill - this is a very good value for money restaurant - we had 4 courses + coffee + spirits for less than 30 Euros each!!

The only tWe tried this restaurant due to the reviews we read, the restaurant is very nice and the staff are very friendly - exceptional service. The only thing that let the food down was cold plates which is a shame as otherwise it would of been a lot better and a lot hotter as the food was warm rather than hot.

Went to the restaurant for lunch and were lucky enough to get a table without reservation. The menu is not extensive but caters for most tastes. The food we had was so delicious and expertly cooked. Service was top notch, the staff is knowledgeable, friendly and very well presented. Overall we have a hugely enjoyable meal and will go there again given the opportunity. I'd recommend to book a table, as it gets fully booked even for lunch in February!
