“Best restaurant in Tallinn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Stumbled across this cheeky little gem whilst wandering through the city during the day! It's a bit of a tardis inside and a nice fusion of old and new decor! We could not fault anything, the service, the food and amazing value, great atmosphere too! We literally had a main course and a vana tallin creme (for dessert) yet it was like a 5 course meal with unexpected complimentary, starter, bread and hand made chocolate to finish!! And all for €41! In London this would cost a minimum of £80-100!!! Thanks for a great evening!

“Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

I visited Ribe during the Tallinn restaurant week, during lunch.
I liked especially the service and also the dessert with almonds.
Also the black bread was very good.
Only thing could not understand was the white bread - it was really stiff and old. Usually they throw them away in supermarkets if they are like this. if the employees or the owner happen to read my review - please do not do that again. You have a very nice place and the hard bread is not fitting.

“Lovely evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Our company was in restaurant Ribe last weekend. We had a lovely meal with potatosoup as starter and chicken as main course. The food was very tasty and the service was great. We will like to go back to this lovely restaurant.

“Extra class restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Me and my wife had the dinner tonight at Ribe. Everything was nearly perfect. The food was delicious. Our choice was goat cheese for starter, duck breast for the main course and fancy chocolate dessert. Service was very friendly and helpful. Wine list could be a bit better. Overall: We added this place to the "pearls list" of Tallinn. I strongly recommend Ribe to everybody.
