After reading some reviews on the restaurant, we decided to try it but weren't that impressed. The service was excellent, but the food a bit overrated. Nicely presented and tasted good, but nothing amazing! Probably wouldn't bother going again.

This restaurant is the top of Tarttu. The dishes are innovative, delicious and beautifully presented. The wine list is interesting with really good pairings with the dishes. The place is atmospheric and stylish without being pretentious. Waiters are the best in town. And the place is child friendly! It may be a little pricier than some other restaurants, but the...

This restaurant has a lovely interer and the location is good in the middle of old town. The food however is not good. My lamb rumb dish was tough, covered in fat, served just warm and had a smoky flavour. It was not a good cut of meat and I was sadly unable to eat it. My husband had the... More

Very good in general, but there is space to grow. The quality and price are definitely in balance. Service is perfect, and atmosphere is good. The mood and rating are caused by overall impression that this place has potential to get higher.
