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.

Excellent value for money. We had tuna as a starter - it was fresh and full of flavour. Duck and Dorada as main course both tasted simply delicious. Also the atmosphere was warm and relaxed. We highly recommend Salt!!

Salt is the best "neighborhood" restaurant in Tallinn. It is small and cozy with a mixture of furniture. It is often full since it is very popular. It will get cramped Friday and Saturday nights. So if that is not your style this is not...for you. However, if you like excellent food, good service and being in the middle of a mixture of locals and tourist, this is for you. If you have a reservation on a Friday or Saturday, don't arrive late. Order a good bottle of wine, share starters and enjoy excellent main dishes. My favorites are the Thai mussels and the Polpo. Then finish off with Pavlova and limoncello. Cheers!More

We had a table reservation and still our table was given away. Finally we got the worst table in the restaurant and the spirit was gone. The food was excellent, though, but overpriced.

Food was amazing again like every single time earlier. Even though the restaurant itself is really small, even too small but food and atmosphere rocks totally. One ”negative” thing need to mention was that our wine Bottle was opened somewhere else than next our table....Otherwise no complaints at all!More

This is a real COVID infestation place and only go if you wish to get infected with COVID. This is probably one of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve had in my life. The food was very oily but nevertheless quite tasty thus I’d rate it...4 stars. The main issue was that in the current time it’s Estonia’s peak COVID time and their small 2 rooms were packed fully with people. Some tables as close as 1 meter next to each other and people breathing to each others neck. This obviously isn’t the fault of the waitresses but the management who shows zero responsibility and doesn’t care about people’s lives. Will never go there again.More

It's a small but very cozy little restaurant with a very attentive service. Our waitress was excellent. Food was great but a bit pricey. Had a nice dinner, overall very good experience.

We visited Salt for a Friday evening dinner. The menu was the most interesting one we experienced during our visit to Tallinn: oysters, frog legs, beef tataki, octopus... And everything was delicious! Also the wine pairings were good, and the services was very friendly. It...was all in all the best restaurant experience we had during our 3-day-visit. The weather outside was warm, so it was quite warm also inside the restaurant. But the restaurant was not crowded as many customers were eating on the terrace, so it was OK.More

I have such fond memories of this restaurant as the atmosphere and food has always been delicious. Unfortunately for the first time I experienced very bad customer service from the managerial level as our booking that had been done 11 days prior was cancelled 3...days before we were meant to enjoy our evening in this restaurant. Apparently no one “noticed” our booking even though it was confirmed originally. What was offered instead of our booking being at 8pm was to change it to 6pm which did not suit our schedule. After several emails left unanswered I called the restaurant and spoke with the manager Janek who also emailed me and his attitude was not very customer service-like as he said there was a booking for a big group and our booking is just for two so “it doesn’t work like that”. He was offering options for the evening before and the following day with bottle of wine/dessert on the house but again this didn’t suit our plans as we are only tourists in the city. I asked him to keep the booking for 6pm in case we can’t get a table elsewhere as for the most popular restaurants in Tallinn you have to make a booking (and that’s why we did book this so early on) and send an email afterwards to confirm this booking in writing. Never heard back and we never visited. I acknowledge that restaurants are a business and eventually the main point is to make money, however it is also a hospitality industry and a customer should be treated with respect no matter how much money they bring in to the business. Hope this would be acknowledged on the owner level as well. Instead we enjoyed a fabulous dinner in Mantel & Korsten where food was delicious and customer service was top-notch!More
