This restaurant seems popular with local businessman types. The menu is new-Estonian, with interesting ingredients and seasonings. It is upper priced for Tallinn, but a bargain by US standards--I spent 45E with wine, no dessert. The fish soup had a terrific range of shellfish, fish, and even a bit of caviar, in a nice clear broth. Quail was very well... More

Tallinn is just great for eating very good food for a very reasonable price. This place offers nearly Michelin-star level food, for prices lower than your average Rosso restaurant back across the Baltic in Helsinki. Add to that nice interior decoration, excellent service. One really can't ask for much more!

My reviews are my impressions from this year's Tallinn Restaurant Week that I shared in my Facebook album "Ignoran't review". The first restaurant this TRW was MEKK - Modern Estonian Cuisine - place we always wanted to visit. Well - best if we didn't visit it at all. The waitress started with rude refusal to sit us by the window... More

Great drinks, fantastic food. I had one of the best steaks I have ever had in my life. It wasn't inexpensive, but it was well worth it. Highly recommend.

It took me a while to understand what Estonian Cuisine really is. Its quite earthy, various vegs and products from farms, all prepared and combined in an innovative style. We had steak and Fish and were not disappointed, to the contrary, we enjoyed the sauces and the presentation of the food.

We had a great lunch break in this cozy restaurant, just located a bit out of touristic route. The service is excellent, as well as the food is definitely "Nordic", with high attention to the detail. Taste the pike fish and great desserts. Value for money!
