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.

Perfect cousy place and dishes. Absolutely amazing baked eel. Bouillabaisse soup also exelent. Waitress's smile was very much missed.

We went for a lunch and picked up the menus inside and greeted the waitresses. For some reason we didn't get serviced at all even though we waited for 15-20 minutes. Place wasn't crowded and there were many waitresses working, so there wasn't clear explanation...why this happened.More

The restaurant serves traditionally prepared fish dishes that are well made, but not too special. The restaurant interior is old and nice. The outdoor patio is a bit worn out, but has great views towards the castle. The service staff was inexperienced, but friendly and...trying their best.More

Great service, good choice with several catch of the day options to choose from including filleted and whole fish. Cooked perfectly and good drinks to choose from - both beer and wine. Standout dish is an appetizer - The Fish Plate comprising of 8 components,...all to die for and accompanied by bread.More

Good food with a bit more average pricing. Fish selection is preferred. The environment is very nice and beautiful. The service times may be a bit longer than average.

Ku Kuu Fish Restaurant is just across the moat from the Bishop’s Castle, which makes a great backdrop. Inside, it is also very attractive with a feeling of both old-world elegance and the ease of an island resort setting. It is perhaps a 3-5 minute...walk from the very nice Ekesparre Boutique Hotel. We were here on a very nice early summer evening and were tempted to eat outside on the pleasant terrace overlooking the castle. Unfortunately, with the moat that night came some insect pests. We ended up eating inside, but you will need to make your own decision based on that it is like during your visit and your preferences. The restaurant focuses on locally sourced ingredients, primarily fish, which is great. We were kind of let down by the quality of the service. Our service was OK in terms of attentiveness, but had little warmth or personality. At such an attractive location in a holiday/vacation setting, we expected the service to reflect more of an enjoyable experience. In terms of dessert, they have a selection of cakes and sweets that changes regularly. You can go to the counter and pick whatever you want. It’s hard for us to compare Ku Kuu to other area restaurants. We liked everything except the tepid service. A restaurant as good as this should have warmer service as well.More

If you want decent fish cooked perfectly then this is the place for you. All the fish is marked up at cost not cost per kilo so you know what you are paying. I had flounder which was three individual fish plus a lovely yogurt...dip, potatoes and gherkin for 20 euros. Staff were really nice and helpful and sitting outside you are on the moat of the castle- a super spot to have dinner A must go to restaurantMore

Very good atmosphere, right next to the river. Had the opportunity to enjoy the sunset so I would recommend visiting the restaurant in the evening. Service was very good and Sandra was very helpful and made the evening great. If possible then I would take...a look what's on the daily menu as they bring in fresh fish every day. We had flounder fish and it was soooo good. The thing with place is that even though it might not be cheapest place it's really worth the money. If you like fish then I this is the place to go in Kuressaare.More

A really very tasty fish restaurant with very good skilful service (many good restaurants in Estonia have employed unskilled teenagers and youngsters). The starters are very tasty (especially the award-winning white fish). The wines were also excellent.

We had a late lunch with our family. It took over 15 minutes before we got any attention from stuff after entering the restaurant. Place is very beautiful and terrace location beside the moad and castle is unique. Food was very good. Unfortunately there is...a lot of to do with the attitude and workmanship with teenager waitresses. No smiles, no welcomes. To ask a bill it took also many minutes.More
