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.

... and no apology whatsoever. For my humble remark, that in case, there was no cocoa added to the pastry, the croissant is really burned, the waitress just told: well, I think it is not so bad, as it seems to me. I also gor...no apology for forgetting my cappucino. The soup was salty, but plenty. Interior was nice, and location good. If that is all, and you do not expect coffee with the interior, try it out!More

This is a very decent restaurant at the university. Polite staff. Good ambience. The pike-perch fillet risotto was nicely cooked, served with the traditional Estonian dark rye bread. Really tasty!

Enjoyed good chicken salad and couple of local beers. Cheep and better considered to center square. I can recommend this.

I went here on Friday for 'musaklubi soulsession featuring Cathouse Radio. I didn't know either as I'm not local so didn't know what to expect. The headline act (Cathouse Radio) were good, quite rocky at times, a bit bluesy, a bit of everything. And very...talented musicians across the board. However I was blown away by the opening act. A backing band of partly Cathouse Radio and others with five or six ladies singing, taking in turns doing lead/backing. I didn't know they would song in English, they did and I could not flaw their singing. Honestly if they were in a pub in the UK you would think they were native English speakers. And boy could they sing, amazing. I'm not sure Tartu is on many tourist routes but if you end up there and there is a show on, give this place a look.More

Went for a quick drink. Nice atmosphere, good service and quite crowded. Could have stayed longer, but there were more places to visit.

I have been there several times for lunches and dinner. The place is nice, in particular if you like jazz music! The food is correct but do not expect anything spectacular :)

You can actually feel the history here. Nice old furnitures and paintings in the house. Make a little tour there, the stuff doesn't mind when we search the place. The pasta I had was a bit too cold and "wet" but very tasty (chicken, mozzarella...and cherry tomatoes). My wife doesn't even remember what she had, but the place was the main reason for us to visit here.More

Its a legendary place with live music on many evenings - but overall it doesnt get maximum points due to questionable service (felt that most waiters were having their 1st day at the job) and average quality of food. There are better places to eat...and hang out in Tartu - but the live music could be the key for visiting Ülikooli Kohvik for any foreigner or local.More
