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.

We had a party with friends on Friday night. The waitress did not have experience with wines so she had to consult her colleague all the time. But in the end it turned out that their short wine menu ended up just in 2 types...of white wine. This was a disappointing thing. And the choice was Riesling and Chablis. Anyway. Tapas turned out to be regular meat and chicken. Not very tasty. Main course steak- really too much salt. Not very impressive food. Just thinking if they are going out of business as they do not care at all?More

This was a disappointment and not worth your money. Service lacked a lot, and we had to wait a very long time between courses (almost 1 hour)... And when we finally got our maines they were stone cold, and the steak hadd what so ever...no flavour as well as the duck dish.More

We visited the place with a group of colleagues. The waitress found us a table and after we had sat down it turned out that part of the food menu was not available, only a few meat dishes. One of our friends found nothing He...likes to eat, so he ordered a green salad and chees plate. the drinks were served and after more than half-hour waiting we received the food then our waitress disappeared and to get someone's attention we called the restaurant phone and asked to send us the waitress. The green salad was served after we drew attention to it The food was also average. Only the fries were goodMore

Good evening. Visited this establishment. That's horrible. I want to write a lot, but there are no words. Maintenance 3 out of 10. Quality 4 out of 10. And if you decide to eat steak, it's not here at all.

We booked early a large table with group of friends. But it appeared that half of the menu was not available, only a few meat dishes. Many of us found nothing they like to eat. The food was also average. There used to be good...coctails, but nowdays they are average, nothing special. Overall - this is overpriced place. But the service was very good, this guy was very helpful.More

Can’t recommend this place especially for meat lovers. Despite of the name there is a very poor selection of meat dishes in the menu. Ordering a steak doesn’t mean it come with any sides - you should order them separately and there is no great...choice of them. There were no even salad on a plate. The steak itself wasn’t something special, it was almost cold at the moment it was served. Service was good and a waiting time was quite moderate but it was a Monday’s evening so there were no lot of people there. Unfortunately, I have to conclude the rating of this place is highly overpriced just like the prices at the place. At the end of the day there are much more better places to eat in the town.More

First greetings to a girl with perfect London English, knowing her stuff about the local beers :) She described a few IPAs so tastefully that we stayed there for a longer rounds. And the food… it was perfect! Delicious steak with grilled veggies. And a...band playing outside on the street - America, ‘20 and ’30, think „Mafia” videogame soundtrack! Certainly not related to Meat Market but just completed the overall experience to 120%More

My wife and I passed through Tartu a few years ago and was recommended this restaurant but a local. We, unfortunately, did not have time. The day prior to today, we walked by but they stopped serving food. Today, we strongly suggested for another family...to eat there with us. So, we finally made it... The waitress was very professional and patient with the children with us and with our orders. She seemed to know the food & beverage products pretty well. One of the specials was the T-bone steak, which was recommended by the waitress. We all ordered different dishes. All dishes arrived well presented. The beverage was also well presented and the correct temperatures. It was probably my unlucky night? 1. The beef tartare was not what I expected. The images they portray did not match the dish. I questioned it to the waitress and she explained that it was changed due to clients’ comments. This client was missing the egg and the meat was in a strange marinade. Also, the menu mentioned it being served with brioche which was not the case. False selling. 2. The T-bone steak arrived a bit late, which wasn’t a huge issue. It initially looked good but then I expected a thicker cut, especially when it was a special. The meat itself was unevenly cooked. Some parts were overcooked and dry. It was as if the the meat was initially seared, left on the side and went the waitress fired the dish, it was reheated. The vegetables were a bit sweet with the sauce. 3. The menu sold ‘Mille feuilles’ but it definitely was not. It felt as if the head chef was not there and was replaced by cooks. With the pandemic just about over, it would have been an opportunity for cooks to have improved their skills while it was quiet? I look at it this way, we would all return to a restaurant if the dishes were good... guess I was disappointed by 3 dishes so... Photos are attached to this review.More

Nice place in Tartu with splendid atmosphere and good service. The meat I ordered was delicious, however, the desserts were outstanding. I believe this place instead of Meat Market, should be called Dessert Market. 🤭

Went there with 6 friends and we didn't have to disappoint in our decision. Staff was very friendly and the meat was excellent. Only complaint in our case was the Tuna which was a bit too cold when it arrived.

All I can say that this is high class restaurant, food is perfect, I would recommend a burger, I have never had a burger that taste so good. We also had fish & chips, it was good too. Big portions. Staff is very friendly and...speak perfect english. Coctails a bit pricey but tastes good as well. Recommend for everyone. It was 55€ for two persons (2 starters, 2 mains, 2 coctails).More
