Food was good, the building is very pretty, a bit outside main roads. Hospitality could be better, after we enter the space we didn’t know what to do for two minutes and needed to ask ourselves where we could sit. After we sat it was...all good, the staff was very nice.More

I decided to taste liver and... I have not eaten this high-level prepared tasty liver for many years! Good location (ca 5-10 minutes to walk from main tourism area), nice historical building, warm service. Outdoor area in a beautiful summer-day. P.S. Also a chocolate cake...was delicious!More

We tried risottos and salad and the food was really good. We were served quite fast eventhough there was a private event on the teracce. Good prices, quality ingredients.

It's surprising to have such good food in quite a random place. The food I had was nothing very special by their names but they had an interesting touch so they were far from regular. I appreciate they did NOT ask how I'd like my...duck what means you cannot get overcooked bland duck there. Pavlova had not much to do with its classic version - I'd say they are brave to call it pavlova, Eton mess would have been a bit closer but if you just let your mind free and don't take the name too seriously it's a tasty juicy meringue dessert as such. Atmosphere is cozy, personal friendly and quick.More

Worth seeking out this restaurant which is a little off the main tourist drag. I had a cauliflower risotto and my husband a lamb dish. The pudding was a berry pavlova with a perfectly cooked meringue. There are outside seating areas back and front. I...noticed a children play area inside. This would have been a five but the wait for the main course was far too long. The waitress came out to apologise and offered us a compensatory drink. Good choice of vegetarian options. Little sensitive about "Brexit Breakfast" on menu.....we are not all Brexiteers!More

Spargel is very close to VSpa hotel, where we recently stayed in Tartu. Spargel cafe has good offers every day and nice cakes for a dessert. We went there four of us together during lunchtime and could all sit very comfortably at the same table....It's nothing too fancy, but just cosy and homely, perfect if you'd like to relax with your family or friends. The food was very good, prices reasonable and the staff friendly. Would go there again.More

The food was tasty and service great. We recommend to taste the "green" white wine. Plenty of vegan options! Slurp.

Definitely best place in Tartu city center! Excellent range of food and very warm and welcome staff. Location is just about right to spend excellent time.
