Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

5 out of 5 stars!!! Had a delicious dinner at Peet Ruut with my family while visiting Tallinn. Every meal was delicious, and everyone had something different for each meal. Would 100% go again and also recommend to anyone else.

The place is nice, I love the wooden ceiling and nice painting on the floor, the decoration is cute. Service was really good. I was surprised by the price, so I just took the main dish, the vegan one with cabbage. It was good, but...the cabbage bit chewy. The mushroom broth was super nice, but to be honest, the portion is way too small, and even more for the price. So I can't tell for other dishes.More

We were wary of dining in the Old City, with a fair number of what looked like tourist trap types of restaurants lining some of the main squared and thoroughfares. We also wanted dinner with a strong Estonian flavour to it. We were very, very...lucky to come across Peet Ruut after a bit online research! - vegetable side dishes and starters were all superb, especially the eggplant and the bruschetta. - trout was perfect! - there was a fabulous gruner wine by the glass. - very modern take on cabbage rolls. - rhubarb dessert was also superb. The atmosphere is laid-back, not overly formal or pretentions, which is great. There were lots of young locals eating here, which we took a very positive sign -- a place to go on a nice date or just out with friends. The staff were very pleasant to deal with had helpful suggestions. Some from our party vowed to return ASAP, and I would personally do the same when next in Tallinn.More

The stuffed savoy cabbage (barley and mushrooms) served in a mushroom broth was only OK. I would not recommend it or order it again. The cabbage was chewy, a challenge to even cut. The broth was the best part. The Estonian tomato salad was DELICIOUS....Service was average. They have outdoor seating in front and out in the back. Interior was nice.More

A restaurant with a focus on bio, an interesting menu, but you have to be prepared, for example the steak is served without a side dish and it's drowned in beetroot mousse like soup. I took the mackerel and it's quite ordinary, it's dry and...quite bland, a little mound of fennel only slightly softens its very pungent taste. I liked the design of the restaurant, stunning authentic log ceiling, delightful Art Deco floral pattern floor. The walls were painted with zoghurt-based paint during the renovation, so the waiter told us. We sat cosily in the corner. There is also a little patio outdoors. Wonderful service, everything on time, with presentation of dishes, checking if everything is ok, if anything else is needed. We were pretty much alone on a late Sunday evening. The place is nice, but you have to know if the menu is right for you.More

Spontanious visit for dinner: pleasantly surprised with the food, yet service was very average (long waiting times, 30 minutes for drinks, and first oder was forgotten). If you reserve, ask for a good, quiet table, otherwise you might be placed in the corridor - not...very nice way to eat, as other guests and staff rush by every few seconds. That said, definitely worth a visit.More

The main course would have been suitable as a starter. The price of the food did not correspond to the portion size. A modest and odd selection of wines. There were no regular lager beers, only craft beers. Is it really difficult to add a...few regular lagers to the selection?More

The food was fine in quality. The quantity was laughable for the price, and main dishes could at the most be considered starters.

We had to wait for long and finally there’s cold food on a plate (for one of us). There’s reason why neighboring restaurants are always fully booked…

Unfortunately understaffed on the day we were dining and food arrived slowly and cold, leaving some of us waiting while others ate. The menu is interesting and compact, but hit and miss for success or disappointment. Not a good choice if there is a child...in the group. The management was absent so the waiter was left in a very uncomfortable position when we complained.More

Came across this restaurant by chance. Really tasty food and friendly service. The 20% charge on bills is VAT, not service charge.

My husband and I visited for a late lunch partly to dodge the rain, which I'm now very pleased we did!! The meal was absolutely delicious. I had sweet potato with crispy oyster mushrooms and rocket, sounds quite standard but it wasn't like anything I've...ever tasted. My husband had the ribs which were also delicious and it was a decent portion. We had tomatoes and pesto as a side, home made crunchy pesto and warm red and yellow tomatoes. As it was late lunch there wasn't tons of atmosphere but the service was great, and the restaurant itself is quirky and cute. Only downside, as someone else has mentioned, is the 20% service automatically added to the bill which is very cheeky. If you are prepared for that, you will love the food.More

Meal was exceptional - quality ingredients, interesting flavors, perfectly plated. Service was lovely, extremely knowledgeable about the menu and helpful with suggestions. Ambiance - sophisticated but charming and cozy. I can’t imagine a better dining experience in Tallinn. Please take the two extra minutes to...walk off of the main square to find this gem. You will not regret it.More
