“Great for vegetarians”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Vegetarians can find it hard to get much of a choice in the Estonian restaurants we visited, but this is an exception, with a full page of options.

The garden-like internal decor was very pleasing. The food is excellent and reasonable priced, especially the vegetarian options.

The venison game meal was rich, flavoursome and satisfying. The part-frozen cheesecake dessert was creamy and delicious.

The service was attentive and polite without resorting to the slightly cringing obsequiousness of that at a nearby (also excellent) competitor!

Portions were good too!

“Best Culinary Experience In A Rustic Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Located in downtown Tallinn, Von Krahli Aed is a culinary experience worth visiting, even if your just popping in for a day. Getting an ex tempore place can be tricky thou, since it has become a rather popular place. Our group got 5 seats without reservation, but that might have been luck.

Like most of the medieval-themed restaurants and cafes in the Old Town district, this is a quaint and cozy place with a fantastic and palpable atmosphere of old rustic stonewalls and memorabilia. The downstairs is perfect for a small (4-5 people) group or couples who want to get some alone time. Customer service is great; the staff was friendly and the service was quick.

The food and menu is apparently seasonal and the winter menu consisted of duck, chicken, lamb and fish to name a few. The dishes look fantastic and they are delicious. I can personally recommend the duck in red wine sauce; soft and tender with a sweet caramelized apple sauce on top. As for the desert, there's actually only one choice; cake, all homemade. Either go for the pure chocolate cake with perfect mint ice cream and berries or the cheese cake. Be prepared thou, the slices are big. But both options are the perfect ending for an otherwise excellent culinary experience in Tallinn Old Town. And your wallet loves it too; main courses and desserts for 5 people (with one glass of wine each) went for under 100 euros.

“Duck with a hard life - spoiling good dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

It was a good and popular place - we have booked our visit in advance and saw many people having no chance to get a place at night. House wine from Sicily was very nice, my lamb was tender, price was moderate (about 50 euros for 2 of us) - but my wife's duck was a disppointment. Prepared medium - it was really quite tough, after an attempt to make it well done - no adequate result was reached. Probably, the reason was in that duck' fate. A positive motive: a waitress offered us a free dessert in compensation.

“Best Cheesecake ever !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

I discovered this restaurant with a friend who was gluten intolerant 3 years ago.
They have a homemade Ice-Cold Cheesecake which is delicious! I've been back in Tallinn 4 times since, mostly for that cheesecake.
I can also recommend the "smoked cheese & tomato puree soup".
All that in a nice and cozy old style house ambiance.

“Not that good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

We visited this place because of its ratings on tripadvisor. I was not that great. The food was okay, not more than that. The staff was nice, but not very good at English.
I came here with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday, but it was a bit of a disappointment. Cosy place, though.
