The food is typical of Estonia. Pork sauerkraut and potatoes. Did not care for all of the sauces. They did not give you coffee during the meal even when asked for.

Came here because of the 10% discount with the Tallinn card, but plenty of room and excellent service. Laura my waitress spoke excellent English and couldn't have been more attentive. I had the salmon roll starter with a local white wine. And to follow the fish of the day, a very tasty white fish, and a local apple cake for... More

Basement food place has several halls and located in the heart of the city. Somewhat uncomfortable furnishings. Food was not offered a special pleasure.

The restaurant is in main Town Hall Square (Raekoja Square). Food is not bad, but has lot of room for improvement. Service is fine. For being in the most touristy place of Tallinn is not bad.

As noted by others this restaurant has a huge seating area in the cellar. Nicely appointed. Many tour groups at long tables. But food was prepared quickly and it was OK. Not great, but not awful. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing (chicken). Wait staff was very friendly and attentive.

A very cool old style Estonian restaurant in the Old Town City Square. I went here with my tour group as a farewell dinner to Tallinn. Service was fantastic despite our very large group. Food was also very good. I usually stay away from restaurants in city squares as they tend to be very commercialized and of mediocre quality but... More

Nice atmosphere wonderful staff. Had the pork neck with our tour group. It was fine but I'm fussy so this is why the rating. Not bad but not exceptional in my opinion. The potato soup was the best of the evening

One of the many eateries on the main Town Hall Square, this establishment is far larger than it would seem at first glance so even if the weather stops you from eating out on the square, there will be plenty of space inside. We enjoyed a simple, but well prepared meal. Service is efficient and staff are pleasant and welcoming... More
