“Resting place on way to east Estonia”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

Good resting place one hour drive from Tallinn to east. Basic food, basic cafe, very Estonian atmosphere. Nowadays it is located 1.5 km away from the new high way but well worth of visiting. There is not so many places on the way to Narva (east border). I stop here very often.

“Somewhat dull”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013

I visited this neo-old establishment together with a group in April. We had ordered our meals ahead. There was chicken soup with a heavy load of MSG followed by fried potatoes, sauerkraut and a small piece of pork meat topped with ready-to-use BBQ-sauce. Coffee was good, served in a French press.

This restaurant has enjoyed much publicity during the years and may be the best known restaurant in the Estonian countryside. Publicity can however take its toll and that is what obviously has happened here.

So - I hope the management will put in some effort to refresh the kitchen. The surroundings are great and the personnel were friendly.

“Traditional good Restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

We were travelling by car with family and as it was recommended by Travel Book we visited this restaurant.
I was surprised to find really traditional old restaurant located right on the road in old house. Moderately looking outside - this restaurant is very traditional and beautiful inside. 100% wooden furniture and everything around (almost). Friendly staff, nice atmosphere of old Estonia.
Delicios and interesing menu/cuisine. Tasty and not expensive. I can strongly recommend to visit this place while travelling around Estonia.
P.S. There is now one small minus - previously main road was going right near the restaurant and everybody could see it from the road. Now the high-way was reconstructed and main high-way is laying 200-300 meters behind the forrest and the restaurant so travelling by car you will not find Viitna courts. You should use the crossroad interchange to turn to the restaurant. But it is worth it!

Tips: Ask for salad with warm wish (smth like sprat fish, traditional Baltic). Mmmm tasty!... :)

“Place with good traditional Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

The interior reminds me on a typical Alpine skiing hut, you'll sit on wooden tabels and benches, but you could enjoy very delicious traditional food and sercive. Try out the Kama dish!
