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.

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

We spent a nice afternoon one Thursday. Due to the very hot weather, we chose a table in the restaurant instead of a terrace. There is a really cozy, clean and very pleasant service. The dishes arrived fairly quickly and all the dishes we selected...tasted great, especially the giant prawn salad. One of the best discoveries in Tartu! We recommend!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

Reviewed 27 February 2018

This is a hotel restaurant that is situated underground in a vaulted cellar room with a glass atrium. We stayed at the hotel and booked a romance package which included a three-course dinner. It was nice that it was not a fixed menu but we...could choose anything from the normal menu. Also we appreciated that our table was in an intimate side chamber under the medieval vaults with a tranquil candle-lit atmosphere. Amuse-bouches were served before the starter and palate cleanser mango sorbets after the starter. What was strange that bread was brought just before the main course. It is usually brought before the starters. The food was good but nothing spectacular. I didn't like my main course beef. There were two pieces of meat. One piece was tender but the other one was very tough and tasted not good. The breakfast was excellent. It was nice to have it in a calm surrounding. Warm dishes were ordered from a la carte menu.More
