“Lived up to expectations”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The reviews on Tripadvisor looked very promising so I gave it a try. Arriving as a solo diner for a late lunch (3pm) the restaurant was still busy, with several groups waiting for a table, but after just a few minutes I was shown to a table upstairs. The service was very friendly and attentive and the young waiter spoke excellent English. I started with the warm beetroot and lentil salad, which came with delicious pumpkin bread, followed by whitefish with mashed potato and squash. Both dishes were very well prepared and absolutely delicious. There were plenty of other interesting dishes on the menu that I would love to try next time I'm in Tallinn. Good options for vegetarians, too. All in all, highly recommended!

“Worth visiting, very good food, wine & service”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

A group of nine, 5 adults, 4 school age kids.
Booking well handled despite the wrong day, very good food, especially starters. Wine recommendations hit the spot. Kids loved the icecream. Nice environment. Interesting toilet floor. Would visit again. Lost the star as the kids did not like their food, which however is not most likely because the restaurant.

“Delicious Food and Great Decor”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We visited the restaurant as a late lunch/early dinner and were seated immediately, although the table was reserved for later that evening. The decor is very warm and it's the type of place where you could easily spend a few hours relaxing. The bread is amazing, as others have stated! The food was very good. We would highly recommend stopping by this restaurant, but definitely make reservations if you're looking to visit during peak times.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

We made it here before the rain, and the crowds filled this quite small place up.

Our lunch was quite good and an inventive use of common Estonian ingredients. The warm beet root and lentil salad was pretty and delicious!

“Quality”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Stumbled on this fine restaurant when walking the streets of old Tallinn as a tourist. Pleasant surroundings and plenty of character. Sat outside as the weather was excellent and was attended by charming and chatty young waitress who obviously enjoyed her job. They were helpful and attentive as I am a vegetarian. Good layered main course and delicious chocolate cake pudding both professionally presented. Fine local beer on tap. Great value at around €18. Would love to return one day and to Estonia for a longer stay. Found the people more chatty and friendly than in Finland but this is a rather subjective observation (?)
