We had a great lunch break in this cozy restaurant, just located a bit out of touristic route. The service is excellent, as well as the food is definitely "Nordic", with high attention to the detail. Taste the pike fish and great desserts. Value for money!

Neither the food or the service is to complain about but something is missing. Maybe its an added twist that is missing. Everything is predictable and delivered mechanically, that little extra is missing, that little extra in cooking and service that makes a restaurant reach the top. Please Mekk, give us the next step.....

Drinks good. Food was good. Service was good. But nothing special that i need to remember. Asked the beef to be medium but it was well-done. Nobody came to check if everything was okay, so thats why we complained about the beef afterwards.

First courses: smoked eel salad (but more than a salad), special soup with many flavor sand a bit of meat. Mains: lamb rolled with goat cheese and many interesting vegetables, Pike-perch with a butter sauce and salmon roe. Desert: Sea buckhorn ice cream with a chocolate cake like biscuit and caramel sauce. (Sea buckhorn is a somewhat tart berry and... More

I've eaten in MEKK at least once a year for the last 5 years and it's always been a favourite of mine in Tallinn. However the last visit left some things to be desired. While the atmosphere was as cozy and friendly as always and the menu offered the similar great choice, the food could have been better. Also the... More

We stayed at this hotel for a few nights and knew the restaurant was highly recommended. Actually we found it is really one of the nicest, if not the nicest places to eat in Tallin. To understand your restaurant choices for this Medieval city you have to picture an adult Disneyland with many workers dressed up in costume all trying... More

They were in 2014 among top restaurants in estonia, but clearly not anymore. Starters were good, but nothing special. The lamb main course was overcooked and hard, and dessert missed an element while otherwise ok. Staff was very friendly and responded to our feedback, so points for them. Overall food looked better than tasted. A lot of trying, but very... More

Having just arrived in Tallinn from Helsinki and checked into our hotel we went off in search of lunch. Ravenous, we didn’t get far. Just over the road in fact. And what a lovely surprise. Great food, good sized portions and very reasonably priced. What more can you ask for.
