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.

This restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of Sokos Hotel Viru. We had two breakfasts here while staying at the hotel. The breakfast surprised us. Although the hotel was fully booked, it was easy to find a table. The food selection was wide as...usual at Sokos hotels. Empty plates were effectively collected away. Half of the restaurant had carpet-covered floors and they were full of dirty spots. It gave a little messy feeling to the restaurant.More

Had a quick lunch buffet with wife. Cost was 12,90€'ish each and basic buffet for adults. Kids also had a chance to have selfmade burger. I suddenly became a kid and made one for myself. Ok food, easy to visit with kids for example if...you stay at Viru hotel.More

This restaurant is in a large ballroom-type setting. There is a good buffet with fresh, tasty food that is regularly well-replenished. The service was good but not overly friendly. Seating is spacious and quite comfortable.

If you want to spend spectacular evening in Tallinn - choose the dinner&show in the restaurant Merineitsi, that is situated in the Viru Hotel. You'll have three-meals courses and magnificent cabaret-show in three parts. Starters Foie Gras Crème Brûlée (see photo below), the other variant...was Salted whitefish with scallop sevice, prawns, sauce of cancer and dill and trout caviar. Main course was Seafood "Minestrone" (but you could choose Culver or Rack of Lamb too). And Dessert - Crème Anglais. Food and service were commendable. The Cabare was exellent. It was meaningful, holistic perfomance, dedicated to Estonian grand old man Saareke, who developed this form of art during the 40 years of his life. Therefore Merineitsi cabaree show is incredibly diverse, covering 1940s with recreated images of Marika Rökk and Josephine Baker; 1960s with very funny Soviet songs and Estonian pop-bands and finally 1990s recreating Boney M, French chanson d'amour and Time to say Goodbye. Everything - the dancers, the singers, the costumes, the light were at very good level. And although I'm not a particular fan of cabare genre, this evening was fun and joyful.More

Merineitsi has been renovated several times during the decades. The breakfast is typical and standard procedure without specialities. In the evening from the a la carte list you can find something else.
