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.

The service was very fast and friendly. Great location, right in the center of Kuresaare. Food was good for a pub food. Overall a good visit.

We ordered chicken salad and nobody informed us that it includes nuts. My wife is allergic to nuts. We asked and they kindly allowed us to send new salad but they didnt mention that we need to pay extra. When we got the reciept they...asked money for 2 salads. It was very bad surprise in the end..More

Strange how people review establishments at complete ends of the scale.We have been to Vaekoda as well as other eateries in Kuressaare and in our opinion it is the most underrated.The staff are very friendly and speak several languages The food is excellent. Mikk one...of the chefs, has studied in England and worked in a Marco Pierre White restaurant. A lot of Vaekoda food is freshly prepared or made. By visiting Vaekoda you are also experiencing a piece of history it was built in 1666 as a Weigh house and is the only building of it type to survive in Estonia. Check it out.More

I had creamy salmon pasta and my partner had a vegetarian stuffed pancake. The waiter was very helpful and arranged the pancake for him. Tasty food and friendly service.

I was here with my girlfriend for a dinner. I was hungry but she wanted just something small. So she ordered a creamy salmon soup and I a chicken fillet. The food came quite fast and looked good but.... The creamy salmon soup was not...creamy but looked like a milk soup. So I returned this and said it was not creamy. The woman behind the bar told me that this how it should be and this is how they make it in Estonia. And then she asked me where I was coming from. I knew that this was a lie, my girlfriend is Estonian so in sted of make a new soup the woman behind the bar started to argue with me. I went back to my table to eat my food, a very small portion (half chicken fillet) that was over cooked. But I was hungry so I did't want to make any arguing about that. While I was still eating the waitress came and asked if I wanted to pay - then I got angry! I went back to the bar and we started to argue and when we left then I realised that I had paid for the soup I returned. This place has no customers policy at all they just want to milk the customers. Bad food and arrogant stuff.More

Nice pub with good food, especially pasta a la carbonara was delicious. Cozy atmosphere, good and careful service. Good location too, just in the middle of the town.

We visited this pub on New Years Eve lunch. In their special menu they offered chicken breast with forest mushrooms and cheese, orange sauce and creamy garlic potatoes. This meal was the best that I tasted in Saaremaa! In general it was very cozy place...with friendly and professional staff. They were very attentive. We liked that pub is dog friendly. Reasonable prices. ABBA covers played by piano. Rich taste Vana Tallinn coffee created miracle atmosphere:)More

I usually eat lunch there. Pubfood is good, very much like pastas. Great place to go and sit with friends or watch football or other sports. Place is in the center of the city.

I ordered green curry chicken pasta, but what I got was definitely not with green curry, but with curry powder. My guess - it consisted of pasta, cream, curry powder, salt and chicken. It even had no veggies in it and pasta was overcooked. I...only ate it because I was hungry as hell and didn't have time to send my meal back and wait for a new one. So disappointed.More
