We recently ate here for the second time. Again we received excellent food. Again the service was beyond expectation. The price was also less than 25€ for 2 adults and 2 children. Love this place! Will make it a regular in Tallinn

It is a very homely, beer-garden-ish restaurant. We were waited upon by an elderly gentleman, like a seasoned butler in all respects. Food was plenty and substantial, which I enjoyed, being especially fond of country fare.

Not to exciting, not too Hungarian, not that good either. Ordered cottage -cheese dumplings, Was not good, boring. sweet sugary sauce. The only reason we visited this place bacause it is meant to be Hungarian. Well..a bit of dissapointment to say the least.
