Arrived to the place, took like 5 minutes to get seated and another 15 minutes to get anything ordered or drinks to the table. Every other place was full so we did not walk out. Seems that they were busy making very good looking drinks,...but it should not come with the expense of not serving their customers. Anyway, after the first 20 minutes, everything was very good, the drinks, the food, the prices and even the service. And they have a tree growing inside their bar counter.More

Came here for beer and to charge laptops but despite the fact that we're pretty much useless customers, the service we received was with love and attention. Pork stakes that we decided to eat here tasted even better than they looked and were cooked to...perfection. Instead of beer we had bloody mary's made by Martin (big up! ask for local garlic vodka), to be honest, the best ones we've ever had in our lives! If I am ever back in Tallinn this restaurant will be the first place to visit again.More

Nice looking place, but food was not really up to standard. The Fish was a whole Fish that was filled with uncooked garlic. Not the surprise you would expect, as everything tasted like garlic and nothing else.

It was a rainy afternoon where me and my partner got caught in down-pour. Arrived to Kärbes soaked and hungry and received a warm welcome by in-house brewed limoncello! The food (me taking the sweet potateo chips and grilled cauliflower and my partner getting seafood...dishes) was a delight and the service wes superb!More

Fantastic fusion of Asian and Estonian. Lovely horseradish and dill touches. Amazing sauce with the mussels, great service and good prices. Rhubarb dessert was spectacular!

The service is terrible, impolite and lazy. You need to wait very long time to have something. Place it self is good and music fine also.

Had a lunch there, but the place seems there would be some "live" in the evening time more. Mussels were good, but I recommend to have a starter, since the mussel portion alone is not very much.

Spacious restaurant/pub situated in the Telliskivi area. Chilled atmosphere, several seatings and the waitress was very friendly, also asking us where we were from. We didn´t try the food here, but I was very happy with my beer - Mosaiik Vienna IPA, from the "famous"...Estonian microbrewery Puhaste Brewery.More
