Been there 7.12.2013. Place was full but still they found place for us. Service was good and even they´re full it was quite fast. For starter we eat Rewal’s plate for tasting, include different fishesm plate was good.
Main course for us was Divine leg of pork with beer syrup. It was very tasty and dish was very big.
You leave place stomach full for sure.
This is a place where you have to go!

Coming from Finland, I'm all too used to expensive food and beer. But Tallinn is generally really cheap, so this place sticks out like a sore thumb.
The good and drink is generally twice the price of most other places in town but, if you can afford it, a meal here is a must. The staff are very helpful and the atmosphere is fantastic. The food was slightly above average, but a very interesting meal with the old style of it.

One of the best restaurants in Tallin. You must to go there. It gives you the medieval feeling with candle light and with the medieval style dressed crew. The food and the drink come on medieval style plates and glasses.
Live music and snapps.
The menu is written in medival style too.
Everything just medieval... :) btw the food is very delicious.

As other reviewers have said, this is as close to a true medieval experience as I think you could get! Very authentic, dark candlelight rooms with friendly staff. Very enjoyable for a pint or two of their honey beer, and a welcome change from the more modern places.

However, the food is only okay and is quite pricey, as is the beer (6€ for 0.5l would be expensive anywhere never mind in Estonia!).

All in all a good experience and I would happily return, just not for a night out of fantastic food.

One of Tallinn's must do experiences (as well as having pie and soup in the town hall). Great costumes and menu, surprisingly tasty food, excellent service. Really enjoyed it.
