Its true that this place offers good elk soup which would be an attraction for many travelers. They also offer a variety of veg and non-veg pies all at very reasonable prices. However, go prepared for very nasty, rude service with dreadful attitude from the girls working there. I can see that some of the reviewers below have said that this is part of some kind of play-acting to go along with the medieval atmosphere inside but from what we saw, it didn't seem like anything other than bad manners and terrible customer service.
One of the girls behind the counter who was not doing anything snapped at me when I asked her what were the different pie fillings they offered! This, even though there was no board explaining what was on offer. When I asked again at the counter, the girl behind the till roughly pointed to the baskets next to her and barked, "Look at the pictures". These pictures were hand-drawn scribbles at best and its still hard to make out what is in these pies.
In any case, I ordered and took our food outside to eat it. Not 5 minutes later, as we were eating, I heard the girl behind the till harshly scolding another customer who thought it was a self-service place where he had to pick out the pies which he wanted. Her final judgment on the matter to him was, "If you don't understand how the system works, you shouldn't travel in the first place!"
It was so sad to see such unpleasantness in the otherwise friendly little city of Tallinn. So go at your own risk.
