Almost missed this place as we thought it was part of the hostel. Great basement bar. Nice atmosphere, good service and great food at a very reasonable price. Most menus in the area are a bit limited. Not here. 4 of us went 3 times and didn't have a bad plate of food. Highly recommend for fresh , tasty bar... More

Very relaxed environment to enjoy basic and typical Estonian pub food that is well prepared and really tasty. Excellent price quality ratio, good and friendly service. Will definitely go there again.

Three nights in Tallinn, three nights eating here. Can't fault this place. Tried it because of the cheap price and discovered great food, very good staff and an amazing relaxed atmosphere. Very busy with locals which always tells you something. Tried various items on menu and quality and portion size was great, beer and wine were cheaper than elsewhere and... More

I have visited it before and to be honest, they're changed. Karja kelder was a much better place before. We visited it on March 8. The food was very very oily and it took away our appetite. Our man servant was a bit mean and laughed at us when we asked simple questions (like what is in this food etc).... More

We've decided to visit this restaurant because of good reviews and we're fully disappointed. Soup with salmon consisted only potatoes; ribs were dry and disgusting; and it's just unbelievable, how to make fries so badly overdried and crunchy; lamb and feta didn't match, the slices of meat were very small. The waiter didn't take any of dirty dishes away during... More

You need to book on a Saturday, we didn't but after negotiating that we were happy to wait they fitted us in after 30 minutes. Good range of beers, friendly service and food comes out fast. Hot chocolate drink was not properly heated.

A cosy pub which is centrally located. Food prices are on average 6 euros but are tasty and filling. I believe they also offer lunch time deals. Recommended

Creamy salmon soup was just 3 euros, but it was enought for very small lunch. Dry cider for 3,5€. Centrally located and for all of ages! Good service.

We popped in on the basis of several reviews and it was a thruth, an honest old Pub in Old Town, just a few steps out from Town Hall Square. Well spiced food and drinks at very reasonable prices. Lucky that we found it...
