Great medieval themed restaurant in the heart of Tallinn. We loved the wenches playing music in the rafters and the spiced ale. The massive amounts of roast meat make this a place for vegetarians to avoid. Reservations essential in the summer, especially when a cruise ship is in town.

I can't count the amount of times I've been here. It's a huge tourist attraction, yes, but the variety and uniqueness of the food is enough to make me consider flying back just for this restaurant. The is a somewhat hoakey, "meta" feel to the actor/wait-staff, but they seem to realize the silliness and have enough fun with it to... More

Last time I ate here was 5 years ago and upon my return I can say that this place is still as magical as I remember and the food is still amazing!! I dined with my best friend who has never visited before and is vegetarian and even she was blown away by the vegetarian options. I hade baked cheese... More

I love this place, it is one of the best dining experiences I've had. To visit this place is to take a medieval vacation, the decor is simply sublime, authentic and rustic as one would expect for a medieval themed restaurant. The food was terrific, I recommend the Boar, and the beer was excellent. I long to return here, such... More

Entering the Olde Hansa is like stepping back in time. It's more than a great place for a great meal it's also a truly unique and memorable experience. It was so good we ate there twice over the three nights we stayed in Tallinn. Yes it's quite touristy (prices are above average) and they do play on that but it's... More

It's a tourist attraction but still one of "must do" in Tallinn. Nice atmosphere, good service and tasty food. But quite expensive.

Brilliant place ! A must visit, if you fancy some old recipe food (wild boar, cinnamon beer or Monk's Bride shots). Dinning room is set as medieval castle & you get into atmosphere straight away when your waiter (ours was Villem K & he was AWSOME) arrives & says: "My Lord & my Lady what kind of feast would you...

Step back in time the menu and staff reflect what it would have been like many years ago. Quite good fun as something different, even though the food was average the staff were excellent. Glad we went but no reason to go again

Olde Hansa is not only a place to eat, but an educational and entertainment affair as well! Stylized medieval setting is very impressive, from the wall decoration to the cutlery. And still the food is not a mere supplement to the show - everything is very tasty, filling and original!

Yes its a bit tacky, but they do it really well! Really dark inside, but great atmosphere. Waiters in full medieval garb, who were really pleasant and helpful with the menu. Try to sweet honey beer, and also the game steaks/stews.
