“Confusion rather than fusion”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

90% of reviewers love this restaurant so maybe we were unlucky or not the target market. We too loved the friendly service, the professionalism and the room but we can't recommend the food. The eggplant and tomato terrine with mushroom sauce was mushroom soup with a terrine floating in it. The terrine was great as was the soup but not together in the same bowl. The venison main course - all the ingredients were fresh and well cooked but the dish would have been wonderful without most of them - vension, blackcurrant sauce, potato and pea purée - perfect. Leave off the cheese, cauliflower, courgette, radish, peppers and blackened crust to venison etc. Despite the friendly staff, we are part of the minority that can't recommend this restaurant. Fusion - confusion or flavour combinations gone wrong to our buds.

Dear Tripadvisor user Traveller35London

First of all, I would like to thank You for taking an effort to write a review on us here at Tripadvisor.
We are very sorry to hear our dishes were not up to your expectations.
Mix restaurant stands more for pure and original tastes. Being a fusion restaurant is not the whole concept, also name Mix stands for it. We choose as much as possible local and ecological ingredients, hence we are called a friendly food restaurant
Combination of taste at our Eggplant terrine: wild mushroom sauce and eggplant terrine with tomatoes is very classic in Italy.
Venison cooked by long languishing alters the structure of the meat, but the taste stayes Excellent.

Ingredients that are served on your plate: mashed green peas , vegetables in blancet are interpretation to enhance fragrance products. Blackcurrant sauce based on Demi Glace to any forest meat is classic French Gastronomy.
I want to let You know that this subject will be discussed in our next kitchen meeting and we try to be better every next day.
We hope You will give us another chance during Your next stay in Tallinn !

With best wishes.

Vladimir ILJIN
Executive Chef.

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

As a whole, an excellent overall experience! We had the 4 course surprise menu (+ kitchen's greeting). Salmon tartar, nearly perfect. Shrimp soup, excellent. Wild boar, good as well. Dessert was chocolate cake (not my favorite but still good). Wine package was reasonably priced at 29e and the staff were extremely polite and nice! We will visit again!

“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We had lunch here. The food is impressively good and the staff is really friendly. We actually didn't know that it scored so high on TripAdvisor, but discovered that afterwards when we wanted to do this review.

Based on food quality, taste and use of very pure ingredients (according to how it tastes) this place is absolutely great. Prices are just a bit higher than the 'inexpensive' places in Tallinn, but it's absolutely worth it.

Outside terrace looks also very nice. Of course partly because Old Town just looks nice, but also because of the flowers.
