If you don't want to sit in a restaurant waiting for your courses to arrive then I recommend this canteen style restaurant. Grab a tray & good choices are available from 4 soups to the hot buffet with fish, meat, rice, potatoes & vegetables. The...food was hot enough for me but not piping hot as some may prefer. There are dessert cakes and sponges available and 3 types of beer for self service. I had borsch soup, then chicken breast & rice with pepper sauce. Very tasty and at a budget prices.More

Well prepared food, home-cooking style. You grab what you like and they will do the math for you at the register. If you need something quick, but with much better quality than fast food, this is the place to go. Don't miss the Russian meat...soup Soljanka, with sour cream.More

This is a chain and they offer good value regular food that the locals eat for a casual meal out. Very nice to be able to see the options verses a menu and Google translates. Really good value and more local options then many places!

It was the best find for authentic Estonian cuisine....the layout is very similar to a buffet setting,but you only pay for what you eat.There were a large variety of choices that we had to go twice to try it all...There were plenty of locals so...definitely not a tourist trap like the restaurants and bars in the old town across the road. Must go,you won't be disappointed....More

Good variety of choices to get what you pay and vice versa. Chicken soup was not hot or warm. Huge place and free to choose any table. Ended up getting back after one dish and take more including dessert and coffee. Easy location. Recommended if...don't want to spend much time on fancy restaurants.More

I always thought this is a budget place. But whenever I go, there's so many good things I want to eat, I end up paying 8-10 euros.

Great food, lot of choices with taste and quality! Almost always full, so it will take little time to find an empty table. Recommended!!

Good prices but too much oil on the homemade fried fries and sausage. Could only taste oil and lost my appetite very fast.
