Following to the ”Michelin” recommendation, we gave it a try. Well, Chef’s missed the cooking of my meat (rare) and got it medium+. I would say not acceptable if you are part of this “Michelin”. Else atmosphere and service is great!

Great atmosphere, pleasant music, very professional staff and extremely tasty food. All summed up is a restaurant I would come back!

We ordered salted fish, vegetarian scallops for starters, beef and seafood soup named after this place (which I expected to be mind-blowing) as main dishes. In general: food was average, taste and quality doesn't match with the price, cost should be twice less. You will...not find any useful info in the menu about the real ingredient, so you can learn from our mistake - ask about every dish what exactly is there. In more details: Salted fish was okay, but nothing special. Vegetarian scallops confused me with its name, because scallops are vegetarian (it is not meat), but in the end it appeared to be "vegan"(!) because it actually wasn't a scallop, it was 4-5 pieces of mushrooms in a size of a scallop. There was no info about mushrooms in the ingredients of this dish. And the cost of it is 12 EUR. Beef was the only interesting dish in this list, but not lucky me, I ordered soup. Seafood soup was the most ordinary one with the taste that I can find everywhere. I chose it because of the pictures in the internet and because it is named after the restaurant - should be something special. Stupid me. There was nothing like on the pictures, in the soup was salmon and shellfish and potatoes... that's all. And it was also spicy. No information about shellfish and spice in the menu. No other "seafood". Also during the summer a lot of insects around even if you are not sitting outside. I do not expect the restaurant to do something about it, but if you do not like to have your dish in the company of flies, maybe there is a better place.More

Everything about our couple of hours at Paju Villa was great - the setting is lovely, the service was friendly and the food and drinks were outstanding. I ordered the avocado & mozzarella starter, which was delicious, skilfully prepared and beautifully presented; the duck for...main, which was cooked to perfection; and the vanilla pudding with passionfruit for dessert, which was an amazing combination of flavours and textures. I accompanied the meal with a glass of New Zealand sauvignon blanc, and enjoyed the house breads. My husband and the friend we were with enjoyed their food and drinks just as much - they largely went for seafood options, and the daiquiri went down a treat as well. Overall, three courses each plus alcohol and water to share came to roughly €50 each, which we all agreed was money well spent given the overall quality. We'll definitely be coming back.More

Decided to randomly stop at this place on our way to Riga as it was close to a park where we could walk our dog. We were very surprised by the quality of food and friendliness of the staff. Best food we have had in...a while. I can highly recommend stopping by here for either lunch or dinner. Also perfect for families and they allow you to bring your dog.More

Restaurant is lovated few kilometres outside the city area. Very short menu, even shorter choices for beer. Despite that, also some items were not available at the moment, which is strange. Girl serving us was friendly, forgot to bring few things though. Food was very...good! The place is located next to main street which makes it a bit noisy when seated outside.More

We waited for hour and a half for our food and then they said they don’t have it. They didn’t even bring us bread and the food is overpriced. Don’t make the mistake what i did don’t go there! I haven’t been in a restaurant...with this poor service in my life!More

Didn't expect much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Short menu but full of exciting dishes, every one of them surprising. Liked the hint of Japanese food :) In addition, Paju Villa is definitely standing out with top level service in Tallinn.

Best outside lighting in Tallinn. Excellent atmosphere in the whole villa. Food was quite good, surprisingly with japanese touch. Menu is very short, so I hope they change it often. Buffalo mozzarella and tomato was real WOW, great idea to be served like that and...really tasty. Tartar very okay, especially liked the bread, excellent texture. Marunaka beef - first time in my life I can say I loved rice (sushi rice and roasted!). And the souce was just great. Beef was a little disappointment because we didn´t expect minced one - our mistake, we should have asked more information what kind of beef exactly it will be.More
