“A modern take on Estonian cuisine”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Usually avoiding restaurants in obvious tourist spots, we initially dismissed this restaurant because it is situated on the main square in the old town. However tempted by the menu we decided to give it a go. Other reviewers have described this as touristy, which I would disagree with. The food is a modern twist on good quality Estonian cuisine and is highly recommended.

Nice terrace in the square for brunch, lunch or drink - with views over the Raekoja Plats (main old town square).

“Very good”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

I really wonder about some of the reviewers on this website. 'Touristic'..? Well, yes it is located on the main square of the old town, so what did you expect? 'Small Portions..?' Well, only if you are used to supersized meals at McDonalds...
This place has a nice feel to it. In spring and autumn you can eat inside if it is too cold for the outdoor tables, and with the late afternoon sun streaming through the windows it is nice and warm. We found the food and service to be very good. My wife had the chicken, and I had a delicious - and generous - portion of duck with spiced pears and strawberries. Delicious!. Service was quick and attentive and a refreshing change after ten days in Russia. We felt the cost was fine, considering its location and the quality of the food.
If you want non-touristic, large portions, here's a tip: Try Mackers, just down the road at the start of Viru Street...

“Great Location, average food”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Had great expectations but felt a bit let down. We had Grilled Elk on Mushroom noodles. Weird, nice but the Elk was overcooked so a bit tough. Nice atmosphere though.
