False advertising - offer of low-price steak meals and free desserts, but one has to order everything separately (e.g. the price marked literally only includes steak; you pay extra for fries or veg and even sauces!); the 'free dessert' is one scoop of vanilla ice...More

The food was really good. And for a fairly lower price than you can find for the same (or lower) quality in most of the Tallin's restaurants. I think it might be because it's slightly out of the very city old town, but still it's...More

We had two different kinds of bliny with caviar. They were great, especially the dough - fresh and very tasty. The place has a nice ambience and the service is very nice.

Amazingly cosy place with great food and friendly staff. Beware though - these are not traditional blinis, rather some kind of cakes (equally good). And super filling. Definitely recommend traditional cakes. This place worth a visit if you are in Tallinn (coming from an Estonian).More
