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.

The restaurant is located in a very impressive building. Our waitress was very kind and she explained the ingredients of the dish very well. The food included oysters and baby trot and finally ice cream with fruit. In addition, the chef sent us some tasting...of caviar on some substrate. Everything was super delicious. Good job mister chef. We will definitely return to this restaurant.More

Reviewed 6 September 2023

Charming basement location in good part of town opposite the attractive university facade. High end but with a very limited menu. Most of us chose the lamb with one having the trout. One of our party could not find anything she wanted to eat and...did not eat anything(!) That should tell you something. The service was very good and attentive, Wine chosen by the server was good... but food was rather nouveau with small portions. A bit pretentious. Eg: One of us ordered a weird dessert: ice cream with some sort of bread made with Chanterelle mushrooms in what looked like a custard base(!) A great place to take people one wats to impress. But, make sure you are not particularly hungry.More

Have visited the restaurant many times (friends, family, couples and co-workers). Good food, good service and beautiful interior. Good wine list. Price quality ratio is very good. Suitable for romantic dinner or important private business meetings.

A beautiful venue with lots of charm, so had high expectations. The food was nothing extraordinary in other words nothing you couldn’t cook yourself on an ordinary Saturday evening . Overpriced if you compare to many other places in Tarto . Serving personnel tried their...best but didn’t really deliver a high standard which you would expect from a place like this .More

Antonius is in the cellar of the prestigious hotel opposite te main university building in downtown Tartu. The atmosphere is lightened by a glass dome over part of the space - but all in all, this is 19th century elegance: carpets, dark wood, antique furniture,...paintings of rural scenes on the walls (actually, of doubtful artistic value), etc. The food is presented with care but overall, it is following a philosophy of restrainted reliability rather than innovative spirit. All is well presented, but a bit timid - I venture to guess that most visitors are rather traditionally-minded (and moneyed) Russians. The restaurant is claiming to be a "champagne ambassador " but it is nothing of the sort - only a few big producers are represented, and nothing of the elite - so again, one can guess a clientele that wants to believe they are knowledgeable in champagne when they are not. In all fairness, the efforts can be hampered by past restrictive regulations of importing alcoholic beverages.More
