We celebrated our anniversary and chose this excellent restaurant as we have been there twice before and were very satisfied. This time was no disappointment either - worth every cent. For starters we had blinis and borstz soup. For the main course we chose Gloria...lamb and salmon. Mouthwatering all. The interior is something else - so so beautiful. The service was this time not the best one as at the same time as we came a group of six. There was only one waitress and she served this group first (we had made a table reservation) so it took quite a long time before it was our turn to tell her what we would like to order. At the end of our dinner there came another waitress - English of both of the waitresses was not very good but came along with English anyway. Maybe this restaurant should pay attention on the language skill of the waiters / waitresses in the future as English is a commonly used language. Despite this we surely do recommend this Gloria restaurant.More

Absolutely very nice location downtown, with lots of history and a great classic feeling. Indeed this place has been for sure a great gastronomic gem in the past. as website tells you, Prince Charles, Sting, the Pope.....The rolling stones (not really famous for their culinary...taste though...)...were there Long time ago. but what about today? Not really crowded when we were there - service of very basic level. Attention to guests close to ZERO. The food was of Average quality and cooked like everywhere. Let's forget talking about 'fine dining' please..... I believe that with a real focus on cooking and taking care properly of guests, this place could get back to shine easily. Premises are still GREAT! Right now it is just the pale shadow of what was time ago. Very sad about that. Hopefully their management will follow up at some point!More

Came here on our last night in Tallinn with a group of friends, beautiful location within the walls of the city, sumptuous decor and an elegantly set table that made us feel special. Booked from my home town in Italy because we were a large...group (11 people) and they replied promptly suggesting an interesting menu for the whole table comprising both fish and meat but varying it to cater for a vegetarian and a person who has gluten allergy. Everything from the salmon, the soup, the cod, steaks and deserts were of excellent quality and prepared with expertise. My veggie dishes were incredible and looked just as good as they tasted. Our waiter was very attentive and professional but also very discreet and the price was reasonable considering that Gloria is the number one restaurant of Tallinn, open since 1937. Everyone was really pleased with the whole experience and if I ever return to Tallin I will definitely pay them another visit. Would be very romantic to dine here with a “significant other” in one of the booths that give more privacy than the main area, and it would also be nice dining here to make a special occasion even more special.More

One of the best restaurants that we have experienced. Food was absolutely delicious & surroundings romantic & tastefully decorated with private eating booths. 2 course meal x 2 entrecôte with bottle of wine & water was approximately €150, good value, would highly recommend

A friend and I had a late dinner. It was a lovely place to spend an evening. Very nice atmosphere and decor. Fantastic service and good wine. We ordered the cheese plate and grilled scallops to start. The cheese plate was fine, but the scallops...woth risotto were fantastic. Highly recommended. For mains, we had the duck and cod with fennel salad, both of which were excellent.More

The stone building entrance look somewhat modern, but as soon as you step in, you are in another world. The most beautiful art deco restaurant in dark red, brown and golden colors. Thick, soft carpets. Dark wood panels. Glass ceiling. Most tables are in small...private booths for 2-4 people, super for privacy. We had a very nice 4-star meal, very tasty and appealing. Not hyperinnovative, but not necessary. I had a super signature blinis, good salmon and a traditional creme brulee. Service started a bit reserved, but picked up; friendly, attentive and speedy. . A very nice evening indeed. Instagrammer/blogger note: "No, you are not allowed to take photos in the restaurant". But it is o.k. with a discrete couple and table photo.More

We ate here as part of our Tauck tour. We were picked up in a private Mercedes at our hotel an whisked to this wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere here is right out of a movie. We all looked around like James Bond might arrive any...minute. The staff was very welcoming and showed us ( two couples) to our private dining alcove. The food was fabulous and we all loved every minute of our dining experience at this marvelous restaurant.More

French elegant old restaurant with gourmet menu. Prices are quite high but you have the right experience according to your expectation. We had a sober business dinner and everything went very well.
