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.

We were here during our short stay in Tartu. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service is friendly. The menu includes some typical Estonian dishes. The selection of tasty beers is also ok.

The food was ok, but the athmosphrere was unique and very interesting because the restaurant is inside of the old gunpowder cellar. Service was a bit slow but polite and happy.

Service is very slow. We waited over an hour appetizers and there were not many customers. We got tired of waiting and went away before main course. Appetizers is good taste and big size.

Favorite pub in Tartu. I like the interior and the food. The trout cream soup was very tasty. I also recommend eating condensed milk donuts.

This place looks amazing because it was a huge underground gunpowder storage vault built in the late 18th century and beautifully preserved. This is not fine dining - it's very much wonderful, heavy tavern food with a German/Eastern European menu. My serve of pork knuckle...was huge - and excellent. It looks set up to handle very large numbers of people and it easily cope with several large tour buses worth of diners. As it happened I was feeling a bit homesick and was able to find a nice bottle of Australian red wine - for quite a reasonable price. I have already suggested that it's worth visiting Tartu just to go here.More

Staying in Tartu for a few days, after dinner in Pierre’s, we strolled through the park to see the old gunpowder factory. We put our head in the door to view the interior and were drawn in by the atmosphere and the music. What a...great evening. When I bought beer at the bar, I asked the name of the band playing. Seems like it was Alar Salurand and Sonimuusikud. We loved their upbeat foot tapping repertoire. Good vibe, good team at the bar and good beer.More

Unique atmosphere and architecture take you back to the end of the 18th century, when the gunpowder cellar was built. Defined as the highest pub ceiling in the world; the brick arches are over 10 m high! Difficult to get bored here since some evenings...feature rodeos, some beer pong, some others live singing or performances... The service is very good, kind and polite waitresses who also speak English. The prices are good and the foods and drinks are tasty. Definitely a must visit if you're in Tartu!More
