“New cafe under the old name”
Review of Kloostri Ait - CLOSED

Kloostri Ait

Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, Reservations
Description: Kloostri Ait Restaurant has been operating in Vene Street, the Old Town of Tallinn, since 1994. Like the mediaeval granary building for which it is named, the establishment has had a colourful history full of changes. Intimate in the evenings, when the warm colours come to life, Kloostri Ait is no less cosy during the day, when it makes a good stop for lunch. The spacious dining area is well-ventilated and there is plenty of room for guests with baby carriages or wheelchairs. At weekends, live ensembles perform. Kloostri Ait welcomes both established and young artists onstage.

On September 01, 2013 the old restaurant was closed. Later on, in the end of November a new renter tried to open a cafe under the same name. Since February 2014 the cafe functions on a regular basis. The old decor and furniture are gone, the place were totally redone.

Now it is non-alcoholic cafe, which organizes its own cultural programme. So, all the previous reviews about the food and service should be ignored, as we are dealing with a totally new place.

Food is exquisit and tipical estonian.
Ambient is calm and relaxed and it feels like to dine in your own livingroom.
It has lot of character.

Huge characterful dining space with friendly, welcoming staff. The restaurant was very calming after the hustle and bustle of the town centre. The dishes I ordered were well prepared with, in my opinion, an authentic Estonian theme. I would recommend this restaurant.

Looking for a restaurant that wasn't on the main square in Tallinn, we happened on this extraordinary place. We ate outside in the courtyard, but inside looked nice, relaxed and not too precious. Food is authentic Estonia, with interesting things like buckwheat and rice side.

Our waitress had excellent English and a bit of a sense of humour. When asked what they called the plant on our table, she said "plant", and when asked if it was edible, she looked astonished and said "no".

Reasonable price, as most of the places in Tallinn, around euro 50 for two, with house wine.
