Simple but cosy restaurant in the woods near Tallinn. Friendly atmosphere, good wines and excellent Georgian cuisine! Summer terrace. A great place for an outside summer lunch or dinner.

I live nearby and have been in Pirosmani for countless number of times since it was opened (and that was a looong time ago). The main problem, in my opinion, is that they alter their quality and portion sizes from time to time. You can have a good and big enough meal one day, then you can have a noticeably smaller one but just as good 1 months later, and then you can have a big and bad one (mainly they use cheaper and lower quality meat) in another month. Sure it's not a restaurant, but the quality should be consistent. Want to make more money? Well, change the prices but don't touch the food. If people like it, they'll come back.

I know the restaurant owners - they are all Georgian (the main ones moved back to Georgia some time ago) and have at least 3 other "restaurants" (another Pirosmani, Suliko and Kamikaze). I would say that Kamikaze has less issues than any other mainly because it's near another place called Lowenruh which cooks pretty-much the same stuff. They are competitors, so this affects the food in a positive way.

As a conclusion - if you haven't tried Georgian food and just want to eat without spending much - you'll probably like Pirosmani. But if you are into more qualitative stuff or just a gourmet - there are many good restaurant in the center of Tallinn. But be prepared to pay 1,5 - 2 times more than you might have paid in Pirosmani.

Definitely a place you will return to, although it is a bit outside the center. Very authentic menu and huge portions. Three portions for two is usually more than enough.
Friendly service and obviously a very popular choice of the locals, and no wonder! You rarely get this good value for your money.

Pirosman red wine to recommend, from foods at least dolmas, the fried local cheese and the shasliks are deliciuos. Not a single bad experience though, so don´t hesitate to try

I highly recommend reservations if you paln to visit with more than two...
