The decor is what saves this place. It's obviously located in a great location and looks like a nice, old-fashioned tavern. You have to order everything at the bar, which might take a while if it's a bit busy. The food we ordered was okay,...not spectacular. The portions were alright. It makes for an interesting visit mostly because of its decor.More

It is a restorant in an ancient vilage in Lagema national park. We hiked to this vilage, so we were quite hungry :). Still, the food was very poor. The first thing to know, the oders are made straight in the restorant, the waitress will...not come to the table, still there is no information about this rule. We expected fresh seafood as it is a fishing vilage. We odered fish cutlet, they were realy fat and lots of patatoes was the main part of the meal. My husband odered smoked pork, it was just baked slices of bacon. The meal is quite expensive and definetly not worth the price. I would not recomend this place for a lunch.More

Fantastic area to have a breakfast, lunch or dinner. Bay and old fishing village are next to the tavern to enjoy a walk after eating. I've been there many-many times and unfortunately disappointment after disappointment. It used to be a place, where I went specially...for the foor, actually for blueberry pie but from the last experience a will probably not go there for a while. Recommended is the garlic bread, which is really nice, clear fish soup and for children we had meatballs with potato mash, which was also good. BUT.... The classic Estonian dish - potato-barley mash with chanterelle sauce was okay, portion small. Other dishes we had were also okay, but just okay. Price vs. quality and portion size is very off. And the grand final - we had 6 blueberry pie slices, one slice is 6€!!!!!!!!!! Now it used to be worth every cent, but now they should pay you at least 20€ just to have it. It is blueberry season now, but they used some defrozen, really tense jam-like thing in the middle and you couldn't even taste the blueberries. The dough tasted like baking powder, base was really hard and sandlike texture, on top some whipcream with 3 blueberries bought from store (during blueberry seson!!!!!). The whole experience with the pie was terrible. It used to be really moist, full of freshly picked blueberries from forest, huge slice with vanilla cream. Really-really good stuff. Now it is a baking powder tasting, mouth full of sandlike sh*t with tasteless whipcream. We explained the situation to the waitress and said that we have paid 6€ times 6 for this crap and all she said was - too bad, I feel for you :):):):):):) And that was it. So, some of the dishes were good, some average, some total sh*t. Tavern is situated in a fantastic place but I would not recommend it because of the quality vs. price vs. portion size - tourist trap.More

Nice setting in a log hut. True Estonian food prepared deliciously. And all that at a very reasonable price! Would definitely go again when back in the area.

An old-style tavern in a beautiful fishing village. The dishes are in the style and selection appropriate to the tavern. The prices are a bit expensive for the food compared to the portion sizes, but the dishes are good and I liked it very much....It is a pity that self-made beer and beer are no longer allowed.More

This place is beautifully set. Gorgeously, appointed, traditional feel, all the trimmings! BUT: the place should be run by another proprietor. The food is poor, the portions tiny, and the prices are ridiculous. Greedy?

Beautiful setting in the restaurant. Very authentic. We had the Herring which tasted great. Best part was the Butter and bread served the old fashioned way. Good place to stop after you walk through the fishing village.

Quite an experience. As a vegetarian I thought it would be a challenge. Ordered garlic bread which comes with a free helping of fried bacon.Traditional Estonian cuisine. My wife had roast chicken which she loved. I had broad beans and a variety of cheeses. I...think the variety came in the way a large smoked round cheese can be cut into different shapes. All a bit greasy and quite expensive for what get.More

Altja kõrts was a lovely surprise even to us Estonians. We went there with a friend during lunch hour when the place was packed (there were two tourist groups) but we did not have to wait long for our food. The food was excellent, very...Estonian and delicious. The atmosphere was authentic and during warm weather you are able to sit outside. It is close to the fishing village of Altja, so you can an hour or two in the area.More
