This is an atmospheric place for wine & dine in a historical house on the road to the castle. Although the food list of Kuressaare’s restaurants looks pretty much the same, this place astonished me with a delicious whitefish tartar and a duck breast in a savoury blackcurrant sauce. Their selection of old-world wines is plentiful and the choice of... More

Chilly autumn in Kuressaare, nice small ancient house in the main street. Even at first sight, feels too small to contain a restaurant. As the season is over the restaurant openes at 16:00. We were the first clients. Inside quite cozy, but a bit cold, they having a fireplace inside, maybe it was not yet cold enough. Fireplace would give... More

Already the menu was tempting and highlighted some interesting wine. Indoors there was a warming woodfire making the atmosphere cosy and welcoming. At our visit on a Saturday evening in the beginning of October there were only one person doing all the work like cooking, serving and keeping us happy helping with selection of food and wine and what a...

We visited this restaurant at the beginning of August and unfortunately it was rather disappointing. First of all, the interior decoration is very beautifully designed and atmospheric. We ordered some sparkling water which they didn't have. Not a big deal but still a bit strange. The bellini cocktail was barely chilled so we had to order some ice cubes. The... More

Great Central location in "Main Street"(Lossi). Beautiful old two storey building, which serves as a restaurant, but is also known as absolutely Fabulous Wine Restaurant. Friendly service, huge selection of wines all over the world and real cosy and romantic interior. We went upstairs and took some tasty Malbec and it was so great just to sit there in the... More

We really enjoyed our service, meals were... More

What a great place is this! Cosy atmosphere, good food, nice service. Had the eel soup (which was okay), the catch of the day flatfish (very good, like my grandma used to make it) and the rhubarb dessert (delicious). Had the recommended wines to the dishes too, which was perfect (especially the sursprising Estonian apple wine). Oww, and the waiter... More

Charming atmosphere. Cozy, romantic. Best place where to hide from wind. We got wine and fried fish. Fish was delicious. Haven't ate this kind of fish for ages!
