Tried booking a table at the "original" big sister restaurant around the corner but it was full all week during my visit. Also this little sister restaurant was full all weekend but had tables available Thursday. Great service, beautiful food. Go for the blueberry soup...for dessert. Recommended.More

Unusually, for one of my reviews, I'm going to be very specific and detailed. This is for the attention of the person I believe to be the owner of this restaurant and another I visited over the weekend. Both were superb for different reasons. Rain...Tunger, I am writing to tell you that you have a wonderful young woman working at this restaurant. Her name, from my receipt, is Birgit and she was covering front of house AND serving in a fully booked restaurant on 22/10/2021 almost without anybody else helping. I had a table booked for 7.30pm. She dealt with everyone entering the, already fully booked restaurant with courtesy and a smile, never seeming overwhelmed. For the customers already in the restaurant, she presented them with their food, informing everyone what went into the preparation and the ingredients used. Despite sometimes needing to walk rapidly between tables she made everyone comfortable and valued (at least I felt that way). She always had a smile despite what must have been an exhausting evening. As the evening drew to a close, she was assisted by a young man, but he wasn't there at the peak of the service she gave. Add to the outstanding service, the wonderfully prepared food and this restaurant might just be the perfect place for any evening...of course, I then ate at Rataskaevu 16 Restoran where I discovered similar dedication to service and food. The waiting staff there told me that it's like family. I know that it's not only about the service. If the food isn't up to standard, it doesn't matter. Your food though is pretty damn perfect too. I'll write a separate review on Rataskaevu, but Birgit is a gem...keep hold of her.More

Excellent service with nice personal notes during the course. All three dishes were good. Excellent location opposite the Niguliste church.

5 stars for food quality and service. However it took 1 hour and 30 minutes for the main course. But the time flew by and it didn’t influence the experience!

If you want really good food, super friendly staff, nice and calm atmosphere then this is for you. I recommend that you eat a three course dinner so good was the food. If you want dessert I recommend the chocolate cake.

We had an excellent time there enjoying a meal, last March. We randomly found the address and it did not disappoint us. Fine gourmet chef cooking very well presented food. The waiter was very available, sympathique and he took some time to explain the dishes...and the wines. We even got a little note on our bill with a drawing. This experience was full of sweet attentions.More

First about the food : they offer prefabricated food. The food we ordered was fully prefabricated, not fresh meat. Secondly the waiter was talked nearby with someone quite loudly as radioshow what never stop. Thirdly they don’t follow much COVID-19 safety rules. Worker not wear...masks and they allow customers to sit too close to each other. There aren’t any hand sanitizer.More
