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.

You have to have lots of extra free time when going to Sardiinid, better grab a book from home or smth… cause you have to wait for being served… 😃 We booked a table and when arrived, the waitress led us to the table and...then we were forgotten for almost 45 minutes. I had to go to the front desk and ask is it possible that someone would please get our order. It was kind of humiliating, I felt not welcome. There were young people working (summer workers maybe, I assume) who were slow and confused. Finally some young guy came and took our order, also apologized. The food was good though and came fast, but the food is bit of expensive there.More

The restaurant's best feature is its location and views, but unfortunately that's where the experience ends. The food is mediocre and the service is terrible. Table service is unprofessional, waiting times are very long between meals, tables are cleaned unevenly, waiters argue with each other...in front of customers. Although the restaurant has a children's corner, it seems that the waiters do not tolerate children - they are even mean to children... it is definitely NOT a child-friendly place! Unfortunately, my special occasion had an unpleasant experience due to the choice of this restaurant. Do not recommend and will not return!More

Food was poor. The menu makes a good impression and the dishes look all right. However the preparation was poor. We ordered two main courses - trout and Atlantic halibut. Trout was according to the waitress fresh, but was super dry and obviously had been...frozen. It was almost inedible. Halibut was better prepared, but the couscous acccompanying it was tasteless. Both dishes were served in the same mediocre beurre blanc sauce. Service was not very friendly and the patio furniture is worn out. Cutlery was a little dirty.More

We decided to choose a restaurant by the sea and we came up to Sardiinid. After reading all those bad reviews, we were kind of concerned how all of this will show up. We read that the service is low, food average etc, but we...went there for a lunch on a Saturday and everything was very smooth. Service was quick, staff was polite and food was surprisingly good! I had squid which was super tasty, but potato as side was a bit odd, but not bad. View was great, although the building from the outside looks a bit old and not so appealing. But the restaurant itself is very cozy and we enjoyed! Thanks!More

Hello! I am very disappointed with service of this restaurant .The waiters can’t even bring the menu, you have to do everything yourself. Moreover, they are very rough and slow. Just terrible service! Food is 3/10 ! Won’t recommend and never go again ! Also...tried to write a complain on Instagram but they don’t reply . 🤬🤮More

I had been curious about this place for a long time and finally we decided to try it. In a sunny winter day we picked a table with the view to Pirita monastery and the yacht club (the sunny side of the restaurant), the alternative...would have been a view to the sea but without sunshine. it must be nice to sit outside there in summer. I felt like having a pasta dish. There were 2 options: tagliatelle with slices of duck (it was a bit spicy) and my husband took seafood pasta - it was quite good. I did not dare order sardines because i don't think it is possible to get fresh sardines in winter and in Tallinn, although I was a bit intrigued. In general we were quite pleased with the experience and would go back in summer.More

Food was 10/10. The Oysters were fresh, portions and prices were reasonable. They do love their octopus as it was in many dishes. I could tell that the staff wasn't too happy to be there but It's understandable- waitressing is sometimes the only job that...youngsters can get. Would go back and recommend to a friend :)More

Overall, food was good and they have interesting combinations on the menu. They serve octopus as kalamari (?). Halibut with quinoa was great and their Sardiinid beer was good. Service was relaxed but we didn't mind as we were not in a rush and got...a table at the terrace. It is true that we got our mains after 1,5h from arrival time but we were happy as got our drinks. One thing that threw us is that they started to collect plates although not everyone have finished eating at the table. Moreover, they asked if we would like a dessert or anything else whilst one person was still eating their main. Table could be wiped before new customers. Otherwise, a good experience.More

Waited 1 hour 20 minutes for ONE starter. Drinks were served after 1 hour of waiting. No apologies or explaining that maybe the kitchen was busy that night etc (it was Wednesday evening! Don’t want to know how long people have to wait in the...weekends). Food was average, nothing special. Wrote an e-mail to them about the abnormal waiting time and got no reply. Would have been polite to at least apologise.More

I’m writing this review while sitting here in the restaurant. We arrived 1 hour and 30minutes ago. It took multiple visits to the front desk and 30 minutes to get a waitress to our table. Still waiting for the food. We have ordered and our...drinks were served, but by now we are out of drinks and our waitress is nowhere to be seen. We were not warned that the food will take in excess of an hour to be served. Even the cheese platter has not arrived. Would not recommend. The service is so slow, that even if the food is great, it’s not worth it. We are going to leave now.More

Friday evening was a disaster. Booked table. Were in time. Waiting for the waitress 15 minutes, waiting for the order taken another 15 minutes. Making the food another one hour. Ordered appetiser, burger, seafoof pasta and place special sardiinid. Everything came together. Pasta was OK,...burger and free fries were cold as fu*k (ff was from supermarket frozen food department), sardiinid (3) were also slightly warm and so badly cooked - overfried. And we are locals, we have been here a lot in the past. No more, sorry.More

I had the pleasure to eat twice at the Sardiinid and on both occatiobs the food was very good. On the first night I had oysters for a starter which were nice and fresh followed by the signature dish Sardines was good but not excellent....On the second night I had shrimps and avocado followed by calamari which were both excellent. I'll be back.More

Not the best view, service is slow, food tasteless and the prices for that reason are too expencive. Cheesplate was nothing special, sardines were too big to eat them (because of the bones) - usuaöly sardines are small so y can eat the whole fish....My shrimps were all over covered with sweer and sour chili souse (tasted like shop souse) and therefore you could sense only that heavy chili souse. Would not go back! For that price would recommend Contraverto!More

Sardiinid has a lot of sea food on offer and special service, where staff can confidently advise on what wine goes best with any dish (and they have a lot of wines and they allow you to test wine before you order a glass of...it) and what one can expect to see on their plate and what it would taste like. Food-wise, it was quite nice. Don't expect to fill your stomach to the brim here though - portions are a bit shy but taste very well. If you're looking to meet business colleagues or have a work event, then Sardiinid is a great place for it, as they should accommodate you with complimentary snacks, great atmosphere and tasty food!More
