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.

Decoration was pretty nice. Waiter could have been more friendly. My food was just ok, not a lot of flavour. Too expensive compared to what I got.

I recently visited Chez Andre with high expectations, but unfortunately, my experience left much to be desired. The highlight of our disappointment was the quality of the mussels. Several of them were broken, and some were closed, indicating they might not have been fresh. As...someone who appreciates seafood, this was particularly disheartening. Moreover, the service we received from the waiter was not up to par. The waiter, a gentleman, was not as attentive or polite as we would have expected. We felt neglected and didn't receive the level of service one would hope for in a dining establishment. I believe honest feedback is essential for improvement, and I hope the restaurant takes this into consideration. I encourage the management to pay closer attention to the quality of their ingredients and the training of their staff to ensure a more positive experience for future customers.More

We recently received a very unpleasant surprise from this restaurant. We wanted to go there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, which this year fell on a Sunday. We therefore booked a table a few weeks in advance. At lunchtime on Saturday, we received a phone...call informing us that the restaurant was undergoing renovations on Sunday and would therefore not be open to visitors. The only 'solutions' offered were to come either on the same Saturday evening or on Monday. In our view, this is a very strange approach. You would think that if people are booking so far in advance, they would clearly be interested in a specific date. There could be a number of reasons, whether it's a specific date that you don't want to celebrate at any time. Or, for example, people have young children and therefore need to plan well in advance for a getaway for two, find a babysitter, etc. In any case, this kind of letting down the customer is extremely regrettable and there is no reason for this restaurant to expect us as guests in the future.More

First of all i would like to thank Chef de cuisine (Andrus) who was always by our side and giving recommendations for menu and flavours. We , me and my 5 friends took Strawberry salad , Pistachio salad and Caesar Salad for the starte4 ,...these were out of this world very succulent and tasty salads we haven't actually experienced nowhere else. For the main course we had Chicago stake (Entrecote) which was cooked to perfection spectacular medium-rare served with strawberry vinegrette and with seasonal vegetables and this Demi-Glace sauce was so jummy. Also we had a Shrimp Skewer with lobster bisque - i mean all those sauces are fenomenal and definitely years of experimenting and real craft. Service was on point and waiter a elder guy was very professional and had a wide knowledge about wines and food. They also have a quite large cake counter and good selection of french desserts. I would suggest everyone happeing to be in Tartu visit Chez Andre restaurant and give it a shot. 10 out of 10. Merci!!More

Unexpectedly poor performance from this place. No souce, vegetables with our meals, as well no potatoes as was described in daily offer menu. When we asked about this from waiter, rather ignorant answers and no willing to cooperate.

A bit disappointed tonight! I’ve been coming here either solo or with my Estonian friend for a long time. Today’s visit had nothing to do with the food - though it appeared suspiciously fast - I always like to think something of the dish is...cooked fresh. It was lamb which I’d not had before but was nice; Chef Andres signature sauce - The waiter was perfectly pleasant but I felt he had to take more notice of those near me - a couple of men by the window and those next to me ( the chap was a bit loud - too much of the good brandy?!) I think were friends with the Chef as he came out to chat - as he’s done with us before. I just felt rushed and a bit ignored. I try to visit here each time I come to Tartu but next time I’ll bring someone else with me. I love the food, but please treat your solo or / and foreign, guests the same as others! I’ll be back to see you next month however…!More

There is a table where one can cut his own slices of bread. I’ve never ever had such delicious rye bread! Staff was quick and friendly. Food was really good. Our main courses were meat, which was great, but the vegetables were of great quality...too. Inside they have lovely cakes, please have a look before you decide on a dessert.
