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.

We were forced to leave the restaurant, as the waitress said we were not allowed to swap two chairs in the restaurant as its their rule. Even though the restaurant was empty. She offered no solution or even agreed to call someone who could make...that decision. She just stood there blankly. We said we needed the chairs for our kids, but she didn't care as the rule is rule :( So the restaurant lost the income from 7 people and we had to leave.More

Went for drinks and dinner on 18/9, the place was pretty much empty. As the lights were completely off (to save electricity?) in the back rooms and it was very dark, we went to the brighter front rooms where the only way to accomodate our...group was a long, high table with high stools. In our group, 2 smaller children for whom the stools would have been dangerous, so we proceeded to take 2 high chairs with a back rest from the next (unoccupied) table. This is where it gets weird. The waitress came to tell us that we were not allowed to swap the chairs. We explained that the stools were too dangerous for our children, but she kept repeating that we couldnt swap the chairs. Remember, the whole place is massive and was pretty much empty, and it was a Sunday evening so it wouldn't get very crowded later either, I assume. There were dozens of empty chairs. But no, the boss said that we were not allowed to swap, the waitress said. As we tried to explain that we would put them back, the waitress only repeated the same thing, standing there and waiting for us to put back the chairs. She obviously didn't care that we were going to leave, and that the place would lose out on the income from 6 people having a full dinner and drinks. She looked terrified, although we stayed polite - sounds like she is more terrified of her manager's arbirtrary decisions than angry customers though. We left very angry and having to find another, more welcoming place to eat (and feed our hungry kids). This is not the first time we get appalling service there, and definitely the last time we enter that place. Avoid at all cost - the food is average at best when you manage to get served anyway.More

The visit started very promising. We got the starters and first beer and wine fast enough. But everything started to be terrible right after that. I had to wait for 15min to get other beer I have ordered… the whiskey sour I ordered never came,...the waiter after I have asked again for it said, that he does not know how to make it and nobody else is willing to help him… and for the mains… after HALF HOUR waiting I got the message that the main I have ordered is sold out I have had enough… paid and left the place.More

Ordered sourkraut soup, estonian burger and the schnitzel. The soup arrived timely, but the mains… we waited for more than 40 minutes after we finished the soup (all dishes were ordered at the same time). As others mentioned in their reviews, some of the dishes...and drinks were not available. My cider replacement (because my first option was not available) was too sour and I believe it was a gone-bad-cider. On the up side, the quality of food matched the price we paid for it: ~41 euros for two soups, two mains, one (gone bad) cider and a glass of white wine.More

Came here with friends with a last minute reservation. Staff were friendly and there was a large variety of traditional Estonian and classic pub food. Easy to split the bill.

No service, no food....we waited for 30 mins for 2 beers, most of the meals listed in the menu were not available. So decided to leave. This used to be a very cosy, good quality local pub with excellent beer selection, service, music and food,...but not anymore. Not recommended!More

Lots of beers and alcohol but food is awful. No burger (only one), no chicken. I ordered tartar, and they brought fish close to tartar. I hate fish and they do not write it in menu. I will never go there again ever.

Food was more than acceptable - typical pub food. We had no complaints about the menu or the food. Great for a quick bite with a beer or wine

Quirky decoration, just what we needed for a snack and a rest. I had a delicious cabbage soup and very yummy cinnamon pancakes. It would have gotten 5 stars if my partner had enjoyed his pork and mushroom meal as much as I enjoyed mine.

Cheap and wide range beers. Bad service, maybe the worst ever seen. There were two waiters who were not interested in customer service. Expectations were high as the place has been praised. We would have eaten there, but the waiters weren’t interested in taking our...order. We left after one beer.More

It was quiet as we visited on a Wednesday evening (and during low season). Pööbel has a great atmosphere and we were greeted warmly. Enjoyed some delicious food, traditional Estonian snacks and some beers. The only issue was that the place seemed short staffed, despite...it being quiet, resulting in slow service and forgotten drinks. But overall an enjoyable evening and well priced for the area compared to some of the restaurants in Old Town.More

The place is nice, some nice beers to choose from, sort of pub style resto. Sorry to say but got a very bad food poison from eating there. That's the reason for the rating and will not return.
