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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My husband, daughter (2yo) and friends arrived on Saremaa and decided to have lunch at here on our first day. It wasn’t busy, service was good and there was a whole playhouse full of toys for my daughter to play with (like in many other...Estonian establishments) which was absolutely brilliant. There was also a play area inside which was great. One of us had the trout which came with asparagus and that looked a nice dish which I wished I’d had, albeit it looked quite plain. I ordered a pasta dish with sun dried tomatoes and brocolli which was really salty and extremely overpriced at €14 as I’ve made better pasta myself (and I’m not a great cook). My husband had the Caesar salad (also average) and this was clearly prepared using sliced chicken from a supermarket - so disappointing considering this dish was around €14 again. Not worth it at all. However worst of all was my friend’s vegan platter which was raw cauliflower, raw carrot, pickled mushrooms from a jar and one beetroot dip. This was again very expensive ( forget the price) considering very little effort had gone into its preparation. We were served (what appeared to be) homemade rye bread and butter at the beginning of the meal which I thought was the best part. All in all, a nice place to sit and stop but I definitely would not recommend the food. If you were hoping to eat something that was more organic/or a farm to table experience it would be better to look elsewhere.More

Food was good, but nothing special and prices were quite high, for example, grilled chicken 15€. Rum cola tasted like water.

The things that went wrong: two of us got their startes quickly, two others had to wait more than 30 minutes. The steaks were cold and vegetables were hard as stone. One of us wanted vegetables instead of potatoes but potatoes is what he got...well,...the waitress took the plate back and returned with more stone-hard vegetables... I paid with credit card and first the waitress tried to charge the amount of my pin code!!! The waitress was actually nice, very friendly, but completely untrained for the work and had not got a clue of how to do her job.More

Very nice atmosphere and clean light place. There was a concert outside and the first drinks took some time. There was 14 of us so everything took some time but the waitress was excellent and handled situation well. Food was very good, everyone was happy...with the portions. I recomment this place.More

And you know what, the cook and all team were singing in the kitchen along with retro music from playlist because they were...all young and beautiful and loving their job! Really!

Very tasty, with nice interior/exterior, good service. Food is no only tasting good but also looks good. On the menu, one can find appropriate food for very healthy eating as well street food lovers. I strongly recommend to visit this place for lunch or dinner...in Kuresaare.More

Table reservated, 3 different waiters at the counter, did not care, finally onenof them told us where our table was. We waited with the lista we got from the counter for 15min and then we left as not a single waiter was seen outside in...the yard. Other tables also had similar issue as lot of not happy faces.More

This was the perfect place for a family summer lunch. Potatoes with goat cheese - wonderful (and the beets - perfect!), warm duck salad also very tasty. A large choice of local and foreign beers. But the highlight was the iced blue cheese cake -...to die for. Lovely and friendly service and amazing view from seats on the second level of windmill.More

It’s cosy and would be perfect atmosphere with family, for couples, with friends BUT according to waitress they allow pets to run around there. We were visiting on Thursday to have dinner and waitresses dog ( that I learned later) run around there and jumped...several times on my child and tried to take her from dress and no one was there to learn the dog. If I went to waitress and said that hey there is a dog running around in the eating area inside the restaurant she said ja it’s fine, pets are allowed here. I said really cause it’s not ok to me that dog is jumping on my 3 year old! Then she removed her dog from eating area and my child was able to use their play corner. Thank you! BTW food was eatable (well except beef between burger).More
