We popped in for some hot drinks on a cold day. The décor is really nice and the place is located right at the Town Hall Square. Unfortunately the service was unkind and therefore would not go back for dinner.

The restaurant is rather small and the atmosphere is friendly. We had risotto with scallops, wienerschnitzel, créme brulée and blueberry cheesecake and all tasted well. The staff was kind and professional.

I had the breaded pork with lingonberry sauce - incredibly delicious, and so well cooked. I also had an IPA to go with that (who knew Estonia made IPAs?), which was quite good as well. Rae had good, quick service and a friendly staff that spoke English, which was much appreciated!

Stopped for a coffee and ice cream with children - didn't believe my ears when waiter cursed at children when we asked about the choice. Don't go there, will spoil your day

I was hesitantly looking for somewhere to have lunch on a day trip to Tallinn. The lovely waiter approached me and offered a table outside on warm cushions under heaters, it was lovely. I wasn't made to feel awkward at all about dining alone (which unfortunately happens all too often), the waiters were attentive, food came out quickly and most... More

It was still mild enough to eat outdoors so we chose a table facing the main square to watch the world go by Had duck in a rich cherry sauce which was excellent, service was prompt and efficient Worth a try if you are in Tallinn

I had a wonderful meal at this restaurant on the Tallinn city square. We ate on the patio, bundled up in blankets and wooly wraps. I ordered a salad and some sweet apple cider. They were fresh and delicious and very reasonably priced.

This is located in the town hall square with all the other restaurants lusting for the tourist dollar. Anyhow the food was really good and at a reasonable price too. Had the creamy truffle and chanterelle linguini for €8.90 which was really good and pretty filling. Service was very friendly and prompt as well.

Thank yunspacezhen
