Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ordered scallops, fish cutlets and cheesecake. Scallops were good, I didn't fully understand the combination of tastes on the plate, but separately all products were high quality and tasty. I also liked fish cutlets. I'd maybe change the sauce a bit - to my...taste it was a bit too sweet, a combination of sweet/sour or sweet/spicy would be better. Salad (beetroot and carrot) and potatoes were fine, but nothing special, I would add some acid to salad to make it more tasty. Cheesecake became a major disappointment. 2 months ago I visited this place and it was the best cheesecake I ever had in my life. This time waiting for the same amazing taste and lightness, I got a cookie on the bottom with 1 cm of butter on top (at least that was the taste of the cake)... Yes, it was sweet, but very heavy and taste wise it was the worst cheesecake that I ever had. When we mentioned it to the waiter to understand what happened, he said that it might depend on a chef (they had 4 different cooks). I wasn't lucky this time.More

Dropped by upon a recommendation. Surprisingly good and well thought through dishes very close to fine-dining. Friendly service and a nice selection. You can start with the white-fish tartar and then have fish or veil for main course. Also seems like a good venue for...a team-meeting or a client event.More

The food was very good, we had meat and fish and a cheesecake as dessert - but: the dessert we actually wanted had run out so that was disappointing. The setting is as beautiful as it can get, the restaurant is directly on the beach...and offers marvellous sunsets. Unfortunately, the noise level was horrible, due to the room concept and numerous families with small children. I have children myself but would never ever come to such a restaurant with kids. I would have wanted to enjoy the beautiful setting in a peaceful atmosphere enjoying a glass of wine but it was impossible so we literally had to escape - too bad!More

„Excellent in any aspects. So sorry we stayed only one night. The best hotels we have ever seen in Estonia. Tulivee hotel restaurant is highly recommended. Busy but very delicious. Price/quality excellent. You can gat a local beer. One brewery is across the river few...km to go. (Small charming Castle too). Quiet, sunrise, sunset, seashore right behind your hotel open window. That's memorable.. .“More

Visited restaurant on a weekday for lunch with my girlfriend. Service was fast and friendly. Menu is good and fairly priced. Ordered soup, fish tartar and mango salad. Soup was small but for antree fine. Salad and tartar were both really good. But what I...liked the most was handmade kohuke "memme musi". Definitely will go there again.More

On the shores of the sea, far from civilization lies Tulivee restaurant. It is actually quite far away from any bigger towns and you have to drive there specifically to visit this place, but it is quite worth it. Lovely view, peaceful surroundings and restaurant...house itself is very modern, yet blending in (shape of the house is almost like a crushing wave). On the inside, interior is also quite modern and nice, with some pictures on the wall visualizing history of the neighborhood (Tulivee or "Tulivesi" in estonian means strong liquor that was smuggled from that place roughly 100 years ago, making locals quite rich). As I was not very hungry I opted for 2 courses this time. Menu itself boasts lovely names like "Swan Lake" (which was actually a duck breast), "At the seaside of Grandma`s" (Baltic herring with a salat) and so on. Main focus is clearly on fish and sea products. For entree I chose Baltic Herring with salad. It was overall quite nice and was presented beautifully on a long and narrow plate. Herring was done nicely and salad was also fresh and packed nice flavors. I only had bit trouble of eating from that narrow plate without creating a mess with fallen salad-leaves. Also, there was few loafs of fried bread included, but they were maybe even bit too overly fried. 8/10. For the main I chose Swan Lake (which was actually Duck breast with potato-mushroom mash and wine sauce). Potato-mushroom mash was really good, you could taste chantarelles there and texture was also nice. Sauce - again - quite well done. But I am afraid duck was overcooked and it was really chewy to eat. Pity. Hence I can give only 5/10. I can see that they have the passion and desire to do some nice meals and so on but this time duck let them down. Nevertheless, If I will be in that neighborhood again, I will return to Tulivee for sure. Service was also quite okay, nothing spectacular but also nothing to moan about. And now the scores - Atmosphere 9/10, food 6/10 and service 8/10, giving it a total score of 23/30, which gives it a solid 4 stars on Tripadvisor. P.S. Rumors has it that they will open second restaurant on the same spot within few weeks...More

I was surprised to find such a place in this area. To get good meals outside of the main cities is rather difficult. It has a nice location, nice architecture, great view. Menu was interesting and also food was good. Great value for money.

A nice late afternoon dinner. For entrée we had a selection of snacks, including fish fillet, ham and such. I had the duck and I was very pleased with it. The menu is short and to the point. If you want salt or pepper then...you need to get it from the counter yourself. The restaurant's design is inspired by bootlegging between Estonia and Finland in the interwar era and the name literally means 'firewater'.More

We ended up eating here by chance, with no expectations. However, the architecture, interior and service we great. So we ordered the fresh catch and the house favorite dessert. Food is excellent! Congrats to the chef! Thank you.
