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.

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.

This is a family run small restaurant. You need to book. I was lucky and being alone had the last free table. The service was very pleasant and they seemed to time it right every time without any hovering around. The food was delicious. Fish...of course and well prepared. If I had had a day more I would have returned to try some other dishes. Well worth goingMore

We visited this cosy seafood restaurant in down town Tallinn. The restaurant has a very cosy interior design. The reception service was excellent. The food was absolutely great: scallops with kaviar and peas; salmon with almond crush and ginger... also their selfmade bread was just...top. What a great way to experience Tallinn from culinary point of view 👌More

Fresh ingredients, nice food, cozy environment. My only “But” is that they forgot to bring our appetizer. We didn’t complained because they brought our main courses very quick and we were having a great time with my daughter. Is outside of the old town and...when you look from outside maybe you will think you are in the wrong place, so is a nice surprise when you go in.More

A family-run fish restaurant only open 2 or 3 days a week, so check before going! Well worth it. Lovely intimate atmosphere in a wooden shack. We had blini to start with - home cooked and light as a feather. My wife had cod and...I had fishcake - really tasty and light. The cook's wife runs front-of-house and was really keen to talk to us - even asked us to help them choose new wines from some samples they had received from their supplier (well - how could I refuse?)More
