We had dinner in Argentiina yesterday - a mixed plate for two. The portion was big but the meat was not of good quality and it was way too salty. Boiled potatoes with some cheap seasoning were supposed to be "spicy grilled potato slices". The food came almost instantly, meaning that it was not made based on order but beforehand. Had two visits at once: the first and the last.

Well, I'm not exactly being fair ... to Western Sizzlin. We spent about $25 Euros each for a 3 course meal. The most interesting parts of the meal were the appetizer and desert; the entrees just didn't measure up. American steak lovers should probably look elsewhere, or lower your expectations. If you order beef, ask them to cook it one step above what you usually prefer. My preference is medium rare and the entrecote steak (rib eye) was spot on rare. The pork chops were thin and fatty with good flavor. The meal progression and service will not appeal to someone use to US service standards, but that is generally true of most restaurants in Tallinn. The wine and spirits list is extensive. If a leisurely dining experience with friends is what you are after, then you will find the seating and atmosphere conducive to a pleasant evening. English is spoken by the staff and the menu is multilingual. There were several groups of people there who seemed to be enjoying the dining experience, so I'll assume they either had the giant prawns and swordfish or they had more to drink than we did. With so many restaurants in the Old City area, this one will simply be on our "Been there, done that" list. Overall rating is 2.5 stars.

We have oftem eaten in Argentina, steaks are good. But this time, without any explanation nor was it mentioned in the price list, in the bill they charged us 3+3,50. We already spent (2 persons) over 100 euros. When asked what the 10,50 eur extra sum was they explained that it is "a procentage" but could not explain "procentage of what and how many procents?" We have earlier given them handsome tips but since it is not the only restaurant in Tallin, it costed them 10,50 euros to lose 2 loyal customers.

Had a good steak here, nicely cooked and good meat. Nice alternative to Goodwin - I'd happily go to either for steak in Tallinn.
