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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The atmosphere was busy and the food wasediocre. The fish was little dry and the meal was small. Solid 3/5, I would probably rather eat two good pizzas with the same money

We had lunch here, I’m celiac and there were many options for me to eat, one if us is a vegetarian and there were lovely food for her, and the meat eaters were more than happy, too. The location is excellent if you are having...a day out in Tallinn. Our food was absolutely delicious, and our waitress was polite, friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. At least at busy times it’s a good idea to book in advance, as it got very busy during lunch time.More

Asking this amount of money for this quantity/price of first and main courses…and the wines as well. The soup was to salty (my taste), but a piece of cod fish 1cm by 6 cm for almost 19 euros? A simple glass of primitiva for 6,50…...I don’t feel bad, paying for good food or good service in a nice place, but the food was not that good, the place also not that good, sitting next to the toilets and kitchen door. Only the waitresses realy tried to be kind… but… No spoons, no knives, no napkin, no wine before starter, long waitingtime for the main course, no correct bill and we both felt hungry leaving this little brother of the original rataskaevu 16…. You don’t have a Michelin star, so don’t pretend you do have one… be an honest Estonia restaurant, with honest prices and you are good enough!!!!More

We got a table late in the evening when many other kitchens were already closed. Staff was nice and professional. Cheese pie was so good I wanted to eat it eyes closed (but looked amazing as well).

A small, tiny and well-managed restaurant in Tallin. Young staff very clever. They even try to speak Italian and gave as the bill with a drawn heart with the Italian flag! Food really excellent

THE place to eat, in Tallinn! The only thing better than the food, were the staff. We've eaten in many places but the staff here made our evening out as a couple, extra special. We were treated like old friends by the staff and that...really made our evening prefect! The food was stunning and cooked to perfection! We couldn't have asked for a better evening than this. We tried to book into the main restaurant but, as they were fully booked, they accommodated us here and we're so glad they did. We'll be back!More

We had such a great night at Vaike, we tried and shared most of the menu dishes. Meat plates were my favourite, very well presented and focused on details. The atmosphere was also very good and the staff is super friendly. I can recommend this...restaurant for a great local experience. PS: wine list is amazing too.More
