We had a great experience, the staff were so nice and helpful, the food was so delicious and fresh. The location is inside a park so in summer the outdoor sitting is a must.

This small family restaurant specialises in fish. It is located in a park under the Swedish Bastion walls. Popular with locals judging on the number of tables occupied. The restaurant is about a 10-15 minute walk from the Estonian Parliament heading away from the Old...Town, hence why relatively few tourists. But they are missing a treat. The menu is small and only offers fish, but the cooking is imaginative and well presented , and more importantly tastes good. Starters of spicy Tiger Prawns and fish were followed by pike and halibut and chcolate cake. The meal was delicious and service very friendly. all the staff seemed to be able to speak English. The owner said she and her husband used to work in IT and HRM, but loved cooking so much the hobby became their job. A great meal suggests they made the right choice. I suspect though in normal tourist season you would have to book in advance.More

Situated at the enterance of a park, this small fish restaurant provides a pleasantly designed interior and seating on the terrace in the warmer months. We were luckly to have a balmy summer's evening and thus sat outside. The service was incredibly friendly and helpful....We felt most at home and special. The small menu supports the idea of quality and attention to good ingredients. The daily specials were mentioned along with the prices. The entrées (scallops and marinated trout) were delicious and the mains (both daily fish specials) were well presented and balanced. After a couple more glasses of wine, we even decided to finish off the meal by sharing a dessert, the summer mess, with digestives. A truly memoriable experience!More

We ate one of our best fish dinners here yesterday with my husband. Already the starters were real harmony of tastes, and the final orgasm I got with main. Everything was beautiful and well thought. Extra points for the tasty bread. Service was friendly and...we didn't need to wait anything. Interior design of the restaurant was nice and playful. We will certainly come back.More

Just came back from a fantastic anniversary dinner here. The food was delicious and the waitress we had was very professional. The restaurant was so cozy and cute inside or if you choose to sit outside you can sit in a beautiful green atmosphere. I...would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to eat seafood in Estonia. I will definitely be returning!!More

Cozy and inviting interior, welcoming hosts and an intimate and mellow atmosphere. The food, wine and service was impeccable. To us, a real local and genuine Estonian experience. Would visit again, and hope to do so. Thanks!

It’s a family run business. We‘d spent an evening at Kalambuur. It is really the best fish restaurant in Tallinn. Small menue, fresh ingredients, most friendly and helpful staff. Exquisit at an affordable price!

Full 5 star restaurant, if you're looking for excellent service. The menu is small, cosy, excellent for couples or smaller groups.

We felt so fortunate to have been able to score a table at this restaurant! Everything was divine! The food is delicious, cooked to perfection and the presentation of it makes it edible art! Every morsel that we put into our mouth was delightful. The...ambiance of the family-run restaurant makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk in. The service was impeccable- professional, friendly and warm. I would go to Tallinn again just to eat here!More

As good as it gets. Local, family run, yummy fish and super warm and friendly atmosphere. Very small, so dont tell anyone. It might get packed next time you want a table.
