“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The restaurant is small and cozy, located in front of the church in old town. Service was attentive and food was good. We were a party of 4 and each one of us ordered something different from the menu. We tried the tiger prawn risotto, beef steak, grilled chicken and lamb dishes and all but the lamb were perfect cooked to our taste, the lamb wasn't tender as it could be. Desserts were good, so leave some space for it:) Reservations needed.

“Good atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

It is located in the old town, just in front of the old church. The terrace seat was a bit squeezy. They have good atmosphere and more space inside the restaurant. The food was probably their original, I ordered cauliflower with cream sauce with sliced almonds. It was a bit too salty but went ok with wine.

“Unimpressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

The location and ambiance were, as other reviews claim, delightful- quiet street good for people watching, lovely patio and comfortably elegant interior. The wine selection was adequate, nothing special. The food, however, was terrible. We ordered an appetizer of "garlic butter seared scallops on carrot puree" which tasted nothing like garlic, a little like scallop and carrot and a LOT like fennel???? The chef had put fennel seeds in the side salad and the flavor contaminated the entire dish. For the main dish, we chose steak (cooked perfectly for each of us) but, again, there was the fennel seed-infested salad. The steak itself was drenched it what I, a Texan, would call BBQ sauce- sticky, sweet with a dash of liquid smoke- not complementary to the nice cut of meat. There was also some unidentifiable and completely flavorless white sauce under the steak and, to top it off, placed on top of the steak was a small tower of dried pink peppercorns- OUCH- what a nuisance! There was far too much going on in both dishes for them to be enjoyable. Other wise, it would be a nice place for those who's taste buds are less demanding!

“Not as impressive as described in Tripadvisor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Food portions were small on large white plates. Risotto was good but not comparable to Italian. Wine by the glass was too young. I did not return it, but I saw a person from the next table that asked for a different wine. Atmosphere was very nice though and staff friendly.

“Nice restaurant in good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

A group of eight of us had a lunchtime meal on a Saturday prior to travelling to Estonia.
What a lovely location and nice ambience close to St Peter's Cathedral. The weather being perfect allowed us to dine outside. The service was okay but a little slow. The food we chose was very good and excellently presented. Pricing, including the drinks, was not OTT. Would certainly go again and recommend to others.
