Description: SchnitzelHaus offers diners a decent bellyful at an affordable price in a cosy atmosphere that is a favourite among young and old and locals and tourists alike. It is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, hold a wedding reception, put on a company event or enjoy a stag night. Those with a thirst won't go dry, either, with our bar catering for every taste, including for genuine German beer. Set in what was once the armoury of the historical Kiek in de Kok guard tower, SchnitzelHaus offers a menu of German-style dishes made to true Bavarian recipes - and by true Bavarian chefs. The restaurant can cater for up to 70 people.

“Massive portions!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Decided to visit the Schnitzelhaus for our last meal in Tallinn. It is at the end of the street and we didn't know about it till we saw an advert in a tourist magazine. When we got there, we were the only people so we felt a bit like "Hmmm....maybe this wasn't such a good idea...." However we stayed and the food was really nice (though a little salty at times). The schnitzels were massive - I had mine with garlic sauce and my husband had his with parmesan and pasta. I was disappointed with the so-called roasted potatoes which turned out to be more like boiled potatoes. However as a whole it was a pleasant dining experience. The decor of the place is very nice and cosy with large wooden benches - feels a bit like a beer house. As we were finishing, more people were arriving, so it's good to know they have some custom at least! Defo recommended for those who like fried pork, or fried things in general!

“Good Schnitzel”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

I had an excellent German Jägerschnitzel here, along with a dunkel Weissbier. The service was pretty quick. The meal was also accompanied by a delicious rye bread.

“Great place!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

We've lived in Tallinn just about a year and finally found this great restaurant in Old Town. We have been several times and have taken all our friends who come to visit. Nice atmosphere, excellent food, large schnitzel with potatoes and salad, and reasonable prices. Our server has been the same every time; Reelika. She is very friendly and the service is good. We love the jagerschnitzel; not so wild about the corn flake schnitzel. They have a daily special on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for lunch that gives you a selected schnitzel meal at a deeply discounted price but you have to ask for it. We'll be going here at least once a week until we leave Tallinn in September!

“Why did I wait so long?”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 via mobile

I live in Tallinn, and I LOVE German food. I don't know why I haven't eaten here before. The atmosphere is great and the food is better. My jagerschnitzel was incredible! My grandfather was German, and this was like a little of home.
