Mant European cities feature some sort of "Medieval Banquet" experience. It usually turns out to be an expensive wayvto eat turkey drumsticks while aspiring actors 'joust'. Ill Draakon captures much more of the spirit of an old inn with little in the way of pretension....More

It was great, that my friends warned me, that it is "living history theater". Memorable place, really looked like noisy-dirty-darkly tavern for peasants) (in truth, it is very clean and no "middle ages" smell there). Soup was great, pies with meat too, coffee... just something...More

I went to this restaurant a couple times as I really enjoyed it. It is a very small restaurant located right in the center of Tallinn's old town. The restaurant has a very unique atmosphere and feels as if you are stepping into a medieval...More

Flesh right from the bone, mead, dark surroundings and a landlady with a harsh act. The only thing missing was I wish I was dressed in an armour with my sword next to me, ready to go in battle! Great experience!

We knew exactly what to expect coming here, and were looking forward to a brusque reception and cheap fare. We got a couple of large pickles out of the barrel and enjoyed the experience of 'spearing' them - one of them was delicious - the...More

A bowl of hot soup, few sausages made of wild beasts (careful, the oil drips!), baked goods (both sweet and salty) and a barrel of pickles. Candlelight and murmur of visitors. And just a little bit of magic in the air. It's the medieval times...More

Do they have glutenfree food?

I doubt that, as they didn't know about gluten in 1453. But it's more of a place where you go for a quick lunch, so it won't take long to figure that out. They got soup (mostly meat, you gotta ask), pies (like a shepherd's... More

Description
Located under the 12th Century Raekoda (Town Hall) building in the main square of Old Town Tallinn, Kolmas Dragon (or the Third Dragon) is a small medieval-themed tavern. This charming eatery with its beautiful-period interior is hosted daily by a group of petulant housekeepers whose job it is to entertain all-comers with their brusque and rude service manner. However this is all purely theatrical - a style that is closer to the behaviour that one would have received in the medieval ages.

Specialities that are served include beef ribs, elk soup, savoury pastries, pickles from a barrel, teas, wines and the famous house beer.

All those who enter should therefore be ready for not only tasty foods and beverages but also to some exceptionally entertaining service.
