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 stayed in Park Hotel Viljandi - we planned to ate some where in old town.. but it was heavy snow storm :-) therefore decided to stay at Ormisson restaurant which is located in same building as hotel. We liked our dinner. Regardless fully booked...restaurant and quite long waiting time we enjoyed our dishes and drinks. Very friendly stuff. Food has excellent taste but price wise a little bit over rated.More

Very pleasant service, nice place in a beautiful building. Fish soup was good, ok size but nothing special. Could have some added herbs or pepper. From main dishes, fish plate was too small and plain. From starters potatoes with white fish was beautiful and tasty....In general prices are too high for what one receives.More

The atmosphere is nice but the salmon was definitely overcooked and the mains were brought to the table before the starters were finished. The crime brûlée was overcooked as well, almost an omelette. The waitress didn’t know what some items on the menu meant. If...paying 90 eur for 2 person dinner then would expect much better quality of food and service. Otherwise the hotel breakfast was excellent.More

Went with family to celebrate son's graduation. Too of us ate salmon, one had pork. The pork was super dry with cold (?!) mashed veggies. The best element of both dishes was the salmon - maybe just a bit overcooked for me, but the skin...was nicely crispy. There were 2 slices of sweet potato, one slice of carrot and quarter of a radish near the salmon, which made the dish too "fishy" for me. The Orange didnt match the combo at all. 17 euros for salmon - definitely NOT worth this price. The worst was my dessert - coffee panna cotta with berries. The rasberries were melted (!) (come on it's summer, a restaurant should have some fresh fruit this time of year!) Panna cotta itself was too mushy, not firm and tasted pretty awful - i've had better PC when visiting local store and bought one in the shop. Sorry, but i wouldnt recommend this restaurant for special occasions. And the young waitress...well, f.e brought the desserts when the finished main plates were still on the table - that should say all :)More

The Park hotel provides excellent and varied breakfast in the cafe Ormisson. But it is accessable as a regular cafe from the street with delicious pastry and cakes.

We stayed at the hotel and wanted to have an early dinner around 17. We were told that they are fully booked for two sittings. After some troubleshooting they promised us to stay (not welcomed us). In the end the resturant and cafe(!) were almost...empty throughout the 1,5 hours we stayed there. The service was super slow and inattentive. Food was so-so - some things were great, some things average. Overall - especially considering the prices - will not visit again.More

The menu and the dishes we had invited us on an interesting journey. Scallops - I thought I was again in Ireland, poppadoms in India, prawn crackers from a Chinese takeaway in the UK, risotto in Spain, fudge in England, dressing from Thailand and the...list goes on. I could see where the chef's inspiration might have come from. What a gem to have such menu available in Viljandi. I really wasn't expecting that. Our waitress was too young to really know much about wines but she fully compensated her incompetence with her attentive service and sweetness. Definitely going back in the nearest future. As of Aug 2020 - the best place in Viljandi as far as food is concerned.More

We ate there twice in one day - I thought, that it's hard to surprise me with some restaurant food, because they are similar and often to complicated when you just can't feel the real food taste. But there - everything was just great. We...took cold yogurt soup, which was refreshing and nice, with mint touch. Then starter with tomatoes and goat cheese - the cheese was bit frozen, nice creative touch in hot summer day, and main food was simple pasta Carbonara - just LOVE that there wasn't fatty single cream, but real egg, bacon and just some cheese - like real recipe. Very simple, good and tasty, but no too oily! What I can just suggest, because I felt that food was so good - to add more vegetables, because there was lack of freshness at that type of food. With soup and starters they serve fresh bread, it's lovely, but maybe some season veggies could be awesome as well? :) Best wishes, Zane&Kristaps, RigaMore

It was quite weird experience. We went there with three person. Waitress was helpful and it started quite ok. We ordered 3 different meals. Then she brought us our drinks and meal. Our thoughts were very different. My portion was normal and was really delicious....Other person meal was “just ok”. And unfortunately one meal was really raw and it was impossible to cut with knife. Then waitress brought our bill. We gave money and waiting that she come back with change. But when she finally returned she did face that she don’t notice us anymore. So we got one bad, one average and one delicious meal and paid more than we thought it would be worth.More
