We visited Olde Hansa in December 2017. We had luckily made a reservation beforehand because the place was quite full. The whole restaurant way lit with hundreds of candles, there was authentic live music and the service was very attentive. We decided to try the...More

Visited this restaurant back in 2009 and all I can say is it is the BEST restaurant I have EVER been to. We tried to find something even remotely comparable in many countries around the world and there simply is nothing like it. From a...More

Best ever. We went here twice for beers and cheese - and if we are ever in Tallinn again, it’s the top of our list. Fantastic servers and food all sticking to a medieval theme. It’s almost unreal 🙊

Overrated and expensive for what it was. Typical themed dining venue. Felt staff were a bit over the top.

Absolutely beautiful restaurant with very helpful staff. The atmosphere was lovely and our big party had a really good time. The food was delicious and it was not expensive. Really humoristic menus that had us laughing. I will definitely come again and again.

The idea of the restaurant - medieval food - is tempting and the atmosphere was great, Unfortunately the food was wau below expectations. The 4 of us ordered different items and all four were disappointed. The high prices didn't add much either!

We went at the height of tourist season so we couldn't get a table inside. Instead, we are outside where the service was still friendly and fast. Food didn't live up to the hype (pretty bland) and the house "root beer" must be literally made...More

The medieval restaurant Olde Hansa is the home of a rich merchant, whose guests enjoy delicious, authentic Hansa-era meals and drinks, true period music and always friendly service. All of the dishes on the menu, including many wild game delicacies, are cooked using 15th century recipes and methods. Medieval musicians delight the guests every night of the week except Mondays. Tallinn Card holders receive a sweet treat with every meal purchased - a bag of freshly roasted almonds, on the house!
