Probably third time me and my friends are trying to visit restaurant. Travelled to Haapsalu from afar and was hoping to have a nice lunch, when arriving. And again, we were told that they are busy. More than half of the tables were empty. Previous...excuse had been, that chefs are very busy and waiting time will be long. Not sure, why to have that many tables when there are not enough chefs or kitchen capacity.More

The Iberian pig was cooked to perfection. Its side of sliced potatoes was excellent and the julienne carrots were seasoned with the lightest vinaigrette. Delicious. The pizza eaters in my family liked the pizza. Very generous size. The garlic bread was superb. Fresh and hot...right out of the oven. It was a perfect Estonian day of 22 degrees. The restaurant had may tables giving the space a cosy but not crowded feel. The wait staff spoke both English and Estonian with a warm welcoming smile. Great bathroom. The decor was fun and handicrafty.More

The food was terrible, not just one dish, but all of them. The menu is literally ON random cutlery and close to unreadable. The prices are really high for the quality. The water served is room temperature. I do not suggest this visiting this restaurant.

Loved it from the moment i walked in, great food, great wine, great service- loved the dogs..... would live in here if I didn't live in the UK. I was surprised to read less than positive reviews on Tripadvisor...I'd suggest whoever posted walked in with...the "wrong attitude" and received the "service" they deserved ! Don't travel the globe and impose your narrow minded service culture on genuine local culture....More

Food would get a 5 out of 5, duck, salmon and deer really tasty. However waitress (with mouth piercing) was a bit moody. Also asked for Pinot grigio but they gave us Pinot gris which cost €13 more, although to be fair we should have...checked it before drinking. Other waitress with shorter brown hair was very friendlyMore

The restaurant seems to be quite popular. However, their huge problem is very limited kitchen capacity. Because of that, they don’t accept new customers although there were plenty of free tables. And they don’t have any pre booking system available which is very strange and...annoying. In nutshell: practically impossible place to plan a visit even if you would like to, no matter whether evening or lunch time.More

It's somewhat amazing that a restaurant, that is supposed to be among the best in town, can afford to let their staff be rude to the customers. We were two people arriving on a Saturday night at about 8 P.M. One-third of the seatings were...empty (and never filled up during the night). However, the head waitress behaved like she was doing us a big favour by showing us a table. For a while, we observed another waitress circulating around our table with a REALLY sour face. She never paid attention. After some five minutes, the head waitress came and literally THREW the drink menu on our table and disappeared without a word. For about fifteen minutes, no one paid attention. Then the head waitress returned. - Nii? (It translates into "So?") I made no comment on this arrogant approach by her, but I emphasised that we had been waiting quite a while. She cut me off. - You are not the only customers waiting (sic!). She put a porcelain plate with a hand-written menu on it on the table, told us in a hurried manner that she didn't have this and that, and that the main courses were "on the wall". The "plate menu" consisted of entrees. The mains were listed on a blackboard, in Estonian only and poorly visible. At this point at the latest we should, of course, have got up and left. But we were hungry and waited another ten minutes before anyone came to take our order. Again, the head waitress was arrogant and looked irritated when we asked about details and she had to explain the portions. The food arrived in due time and was okay. Nothing special and somewhat pricey, but okay. We had Iberian pig and rabbit burger. The portions were not like the waitress had described, but at this point, we did not care anymore. We wanted to finish our meal and go away to spend the evening elsewhere. Needless to say, we had to wait for anyone to come with the bill. We considered leaving without paying just to see if anyone would notice. I honestly don't understand how behaviour like this is possible. In the Soviet Union, customers were treated like rotten fish the cat had brought in. But that was a long time ago and now it's 2020. I won't bring my money to this establishment anymore, and I will also tell my friends not to. There are many other places in town for a nice dinner or a drink.More

Terrible place. We got booking for 2 person, our table was without fork, knife, napkins, nothing at all! And after all our table was not in level!! How you can eat there?? Next we got menu..it whose written on plates by hand!! Unbelievable how people...should read handwritten menu from Tea cup under plate. And that whose not all, main courses were separate. Hand written on blackboard and in the invisible place. To read you need to stand up and stay In front of blackboard. But then the waitresses will pass by and you are there in the middle disturbing them. To include all everything around whose dirty.More

They didn't respond to my review. Maybe they accept criticism tacitly and act on it. :)
