This place could not have been more charming or delicious. The young staff were very attentive, warm and knowledgable and made us feel right at home. The space is spread over 2 rooms on ground level with a side room up a narrow staircase in...a centuries-old building (1300's I believe). We had the window table at the front but as it was slighly cool, they offered us blankets (a nice touch). Try the elk (very much like brisket) and don't miss the salmon soup (a nordic staple that is not to be missed). Be sure you book ahead. We sat near the front on a Saturday at lunchtime and few people were lucky enough to get a table as a walk-in.More

Wow! What an incredible dining experience we had for lunch today. Not only was the food absolutely delicious but the service was exquisite too! We both had the breaded chicken, followed by chocolate cake and bread pudding. The attention to detail, combination of flavours and...textures are all planned to perfection. Additionally, our server explained each meal and the produce. Added bonus...the delicious home made bread. Do not miss this place if visiting Tallinn.More

Marvellous restaurant - good small menu, I wanted to try everything they sounded so good - food was terrific as was wine as was service. Ambience great too, would totally recommend - only strange thing I was told they have no one in charge, it...is the way they operate, which seems to work fine except for a congregation of chatting staff at reception which is the onky professional thing about place - however its a must visitMore

Wow - just wow. This lovely restaurant was recommended by Kadria who works as a tour guide in Tallin - and what a superb recommendation it turned out to be. We called in to see if they had any availability for a meal and luckily...we were in luck. Raymond took care of us throughout our time - he was absolutely delightful, he could not do enough to make our meal special. He shared his love for the restaurant and the food, he explained everything that was on our plates- his passion was fantastic as was the food which not only looked superb but was probably the best meal we have had. I would say this eatery is a must do experience if you are going to Tallin and if you are lucky enough to have Raymond serve you so much the better.More

Excellent and friendly service. Good wines. Food was great, but for five stars would have needed some more flavours. Nice place to visit and eat.

We had a fantastic meal on a Friday evening and Elin looked after us very well. She was so attentive, recommending her secret “sour” cocktail (which you should definitely try) along with the molasses bread, salted salmon and the elk roast, followed by the bread...pudding and selection of Estonian cheeses. Each course was delicious - we would definitely recommend / return and the sweet messages (which seem to be a theme at this restaurant based on prior reviews) are a really nice personal touch. Will be back!More

There’s a reason this place has so many positive reviews. The food was wonderful, in fact it was honestly one of the best meals I have ever had. And the service was excellent too. Everyone was so nice. If I ever make it back to...Tallinn this will be on my list. Make sure you make a reservation!More

Did not see your message until Aug 8. You may try to phone the restaurant +372 642 4025 and see if a table is available. Lunch time can be busy but they may have room for a walk-in. Best wishes & Bon Appetit.
