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 only had the lunch buffet there, several salads, , soups, some hot dishes, two desserts and bread/coffee/tea. Not an enormous choice, but of a good quality and for a really very good price! If you are in this area go for the lunch buffet!

(По-русски ниже). So me and my wife were the only visitors, no one inside, no one in outside space. A really old and slowly moving man wanted to eat his purchased in Rimi ice cream while sitting on the outside Dorpat sofa. Waiter Marek immediatelly...asked him to go away because the old man didn't order anything. The poor guy went away, moving really slowly, almost forgot his glasses. I understand about the rules. But would it really hurt anyone? It was a normal well-dressed old gentleman, not a drunkard. The atmosphere was ruined for me, and the atmosphere is half of the eating-out experience. Don't want to visit Dorpat ever again. / Сидели в Дорпате за уличными столами. Хорошо одетый, очень старый, медленно двигающийся старик хотел посидеть на соседнем диване и съесть свое мороженое. Официант его выгнал. Да, это по правилам. Но разве он кому-то мешал? Ресторан был абсолютно пустой, за исключением нас. Стало грустно и противно, больше в Дорпат не пойду.More

Food was good, but you have to wait for it for a very long time.. Not a rush hour. Breakfast was cold early in the morning..

Unfortunately there isn't many positive things I can say about this place. We were staying in Dorpat hotel and booked a table on Saturday night from the restaurant. The place was quite empty the whole time we were there so you can't really blame busy...hours or anything. I think our waitress had some difficulties with English. She wasn't too kind or helpful and seemed stressed out. We ordered couple of wine bottles and had difficulties in getting them on the table. Waitress mixed the orders and vanished from sight for quite some time. Food wasn't anything special: I had duck as a starter and it was cooked through. Our party had also steak for mains and no one asked how we would like it to be served. Every dish was cooked differently: I had luck and got myself medium plus but others were cooked through. Dinner wasn't anything to remember in a good way and I wouldn't go near this place again.More

Not much to offer for Vegetarians except for the location being next to the river front.. But yes it does offer a peaceful environment to spend time with your beloved...

We had dinner at the restaurant, the beginning seemed promising with the look of the menu, but the titles were funny, it was difficult to choose and the prices were quite high comparing to the rest of Tartu (Starters ~7€; Main ~16€). The service was...intermediate with the waitress seeming to be lost in her thoughts. I had the beef, my friends had salmon and everything tasted good, but it wouldn't be a place I wish to visit again.More

At 6.50€ per head for the lunch buffet (soup, starter, main and dessert) it is a bargain. The food is ok, simple but really you get more than you pay for. I would recommend this restaurant part of the hotel for large group.

The restaurant is on the ground floor with quite nice view to the Emajõgi river. Personell is professional but the food is average as far as my experience on restaurants in Tartu, it could be a little better also here. Service is nice and international...customers stay here as the restaurant is part of the Dorpat hotel and SPA.More

Delicious food and wine served well by very efficient staff I had braised cow cheeks which were melt in the mouth. Unfortunately only dined on one occasion but look forward to a return visit in 2015. The wine measures seemed small 12.5 cl if my...metric is correct. Will go for the bottle next timeMore
