“You must eat / stay here!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This restaurant is attached to the Hotel St. Petersburg and was a very lucky find while in the Old Town. We only stopped for a drink, but were amazed by the menu and ordered 3 tapas style dishes.
Firstly they brought out fresh baked bread with 4 flavour butters , and I knew we were on to a good thing. The dishes where exceptional and served to an amazingly high presentation standard with flavours to match.
If you are looking for high quality food and service don't even consider going anywhere else.
The hotel decor was modern and beautiful and I feel sure the bedrooms would be the same.
Highly recommended!

“Our hotel restaurant - very good”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We had super food and great service from a knowledgeable waiter. Also a very nice bar. The starters were to die for - and how about homemade bread types and a slate with 4 types of flavoured butter before we even began!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Really liked the food at this place. I've been to most of the top restaurants in the baltics and this one is right up there. Wine selection was great and the service was good although at times a little slow but considdring the place
was very busy it was accptable.

“Best in town”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Food is absolutely excellent and environment even better. Very comfortable low sofa chairs and great music with one of the coolest bar tops we have seen. Highly recommend. For nice weather try terrace. Prices very affordable

“High quality lunch at the sunny terrace”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

It was one of the first warm and sunny days this spring and we decided to have lunch outside. As we didn’t want to settle to one of the very touristic terraces round Raekoja Plats we remembered this terrace we had passed the day before. There was nobody at the terrace when we arrived but a waitress came quickly. The menu looked appealing and pricing was surprisingly decent taken in to account that it’s a restaurant of a 4-star hotel.

We were served warm (even hot) bread and a cute selection of butters (plain, herb, squid ink, burnt caramel). For starters we shared a tiger prawn portion from Tapas menu. It was very beautifully presented. For main we both had venison which was perfectly cooked. And as a dessert we had selection of ice cream/sorbets. We let the chef decide the flavors (vanilla, blueberry and strawberry). With 4 classes of white wine and 3 x 0,8l sparkling water (which I’m quite sure we didn’t drink all but wasn’t in the mood to discuss it when the bill arrived) our bill for the lunch was 101 Eur. I would call it a good deal. We probably would have ended up paying the same amount for much much lousier quality food if we had stayed at Raekoja Plats. Service was very attentive and friendly.
