Põhjaka mõis serves flavorful modern food from local ingredients such as wild herbs and vegetables grown in the backyard. The rustic and historic manor environment is a real treat. Service comes with a smile. Definitely a place worth a detour.
I had clear soup with beef tail and noodles and Napoleon cake as dessert. My companion ate smoky bream(fish) pure soup as starter and pike with potatoes and cottage cheese as main. Had chance to taste his puree soup - smokiness was heavy and therefore...extremely tasty. My clear soup had hints of asia in it, vegetables were nicely crunchy. The home-made Põhjaka black bread and herb butter matched perfectly with soups. The Napoleon was very crunchy coated with foxberries, for me it lacked a bit juicyness (cream), but overall tasted like grandma's. Homemade drinks - rhubarb lemonade and root bere were fantastic. It is rare to be served by polite old-school waiter in Estonia, super-cool, but would have waited more smile and joy...Interior 10 points. Bought some fresh bread bun to take away. Will come again.More
I was really looking to go to eat here and both me and my husband got quite dissapointed.
He had a veise kotlett and I had a kohafillee.
Beautiful elegent kohafilee was completely killed by oversalted dip. I cook often kohafilee at home and it...turns out way more better.
My husband's kotlett was a disaster, as first of all it was completely burnt and overcooked, as was falling apart into pieces. As meat was overcooked, it lost all the juices.
Nobody came to check on us, if we liked our food, so we didn't really have a chance to give this feedback on site.
However, what was good were sidedishes: vegetables, vutimunad, dressings. They had beautiful taste and were mouth-melting. Obviously, you don't need to have much cooking skill, when using such a high quality fresh ingredients, as they taste fantastic as they are.
But does it save a day when the main part of the dish is so badly cooked?
The price tag was ridiculous. It turned out to be way more expensive than other Tallinn restaurants with similar theme where we usually eat (like Umami or Linnuküla).
And it was officially the most expensive baby food we ever had for our girl - 8 eur for a baby meal!
I would not return neither recommend this restaurant. There are better places out there to try Estonian cuisine.More
Traveled here during cold March Sunday when decided to drop by even was not sure that is was working since there was a lot of snow and the weather was not that great. However, it was, even though only a few people came by -...despite of that, ,food was best quality and fresh and it was really very cosy to sit down and sip a glass of wine looking through the window. We had some starters and for the mains chose fish (do not really remember which fish was it) and lamb cutlet. Both tasted great. Place for improvement would be a menu in English - because had really a hard time reading it. But overall a great experience, cosy atmosphere, should return back with a better weather.More
Good to see that old manor is being re-used and some young people are running a restaurant, but they have still lot to do. No easy access and poor menu for kids. The building itself needs renovation and you can feel chill air when sitting...near a window.
The food is beautifully presented and taste is there. Bit too high priced meals.
Don't regret to make a visit but would like to hear about their improvement for going back again.More
What to say!, the good is outstanding and clearly homemade
The property itself is an ancient manor house with a great setting. It's been tastefully renovated whilst still Showing it's age - as it should!!. Excellent setting for a meal and well priced for what...it is
