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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Food good 4/5, service good 4/5, venue really nice 4/5. Duck was excellent and the cook on it perfect. Bore was good but the whole dish a bit too sweat and lacked freshness. Waitress really lovely.

Nicely umbrellaed patio! We wanted to enjoy lunch outside and our waiter gamely trotted up and down the cellar stairs to serve us, even though it would have been easier on him if we'd dined downstairs. I ordered the Scandinavian fish soup and the bread/dip...appetizer and both were terrific.More

What a lovely find on our first day in Tallin. We had popped in somewhere else that was absolutely chaotic, so we had coffee and headed off for dinner elsewhere. This is where we found this lovely basement restaurant. Staff were pleasant, we felt welcomed,...the food was good, and the price point fair. Indeed, my wife thought that it was going to be dreadfully expensive, when it was not. If we had longer to visit, then we would go back.More

The food was delicious (stewed wild boar and chicken fillet) and the service excellent. As it was summer we ate outside on a rather quiet street so I can't comment on the inside atmosphere. The prices are reasonable and in any case relevant with the...quality and quantity of the food. I will definitely come again the next time I visit Talinn.More
