It was a warm, sunny day so we all sat outside. There was enough shade with the numerous parasols. We were welcomed warmly and received our menus promptly. Everyone’s dishes were delicious and drinks were served at the correct temperatures. Service was very good. My...slow cooked pork was a bit dry / overcooked. This was just a small part of an overall, great experience.More

It was the first time we went there and probably the last. Didn’t have a chance to try food nor drinks. When we came, they said kitchen is closed already, which was ok for us since we only wanted to have a drink. They have...us a menu, and in 10 min waitress came to take an order ( which was two cocktails). After she took our order, she came back to say us that that can’t make us the drinks because they were out of ice. Instead of offering smth else ( we wanted actually to order some bottled beer), she just left. On Sundays this place works until 17.30, we came there around 16.50. We understand that maybe they just didn’t want to take new clients, but why you can’t just honestly say it?More

Have always enjoyed visiting this restaurant until today. We had a table reserved but when we arrived no one of the 3 waiters even looked at us so we sat at the table we saw was free and with the sign “reserved”. Then after some...time we got the menus and as the very bright lighting was straight above us, we asked if we could maybe sit anywhere else or turn the lamps down but they told it is not possible, which is understandable. Then we saw that people just left and table became available and we decided to move over there, after which a waiter immediately stormed to us, sighted very rudely and told how are they supposed to know what to clean now. I asked her politely why does she need to ask it with such a rude tone after which she rolled her eyes and told us we are rude to sit in another table. Obviously we left after this because she did not even apologise and started defending herself. Very very disappointed and sad to see such a bad service in a good restaurant, probably not visiting again anytime soon as we felt like we were very unwelcome there.More

Overall, the lunch was ok. Food was on the boring side and lacked seasoning. Service was prompt and the place itself is quite cool. Oh, and, if you go there, do avoid cocktails - they clearly didn't have a proper barman in there during afternoon...hours.More

Long waiting for lunch and still half of my mussels were not opened. None of our family was happy about their portions. Only one gluten free option.

We went there for dinner on a Saturday evening. The waitress was attentive and friendly. Shortly after we had placed our order we learned that the kitchen was out of pasta. So no pasta dishes. Really, on a Saturday night? We ordered different dishes instead,...I had a pulled pork burger with potato wedges. Food came quickly, my burger had exactly 4(!) potato wedges as a side. The meat was partly cold already. I can recommend this place for drinks only. The kitchen seems to be a mess.More

I went there because they have some vegan options. However, I waited like an hour to get my food (and only after asking) and this is not how I want to spent my one day of traveling in Tartu. They didn’t say anything about waiting...time when I ordered. So only go there if you have enough time on hand for waiting and you don’t starve.More

Meal were super. The cheesecake is amazing, literally melts in your mouth. Prices were more than okay for this taste experience, cheap. Place is very comfy and cozy perfect for an evening with friends, family or for a romantic date. Waitresses are quick, active and...always smiling. Good place, going to visit again for sure.More

Cozy place with good and affordable food. I ordered a lamb and it was really delicious. On the side was sweet potatoe and corn. The service was nice, waitress cared about our table.
