4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

Food is great, prices are good too. Very warm atmosphere, not the best restaurant in the world, but I definitely like the food.

“Terrible.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

TripAdvisor want me to write at least 100 characters but saying that this is a terrible place is really enough. It's like they serve you the food that someone didn't ate yesterday.

“For Georgian fans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

I have visited this restaurant on numerous occations. It is a very polpular place so it might be tricky to get a place during lunch time. Cuisine is great. A variety of Georgian national dishes are served in the restaurant. Meat is grilled on open fire. There is a possibility also for trying Georgian soft drinks, wines, beer and harder liqueurs. Drawback might be a varying quality of food served. Usually I haven't had problems, but on some occasions the food has been brought cold.

“Great Georgian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

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.

“Not a bad place to eat, but not a good one too”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

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.
