We've been here several times and usually everything has went well. Over 100 years old stylish old Wind Mill, with terrace and restaurant inside and menu full of local favourites. Unfortunately this time our visit didn't went so well. Terrace was full of wasps, so...we went inside, no problem about that. But then both dishes we want weren't available, including fish soup, which sounds little strange, because there weren't that many customers. We also ordered local cider, but they didn't had any in cold, so it was warm. But still overall we like this place, maybe Covid and lack of tourists has affected them. So see you next timeMore

All was just perfect! ✨ The restaurant is an ancient windmill, it was so beautiful and fun to eat in there! The crew is super lovely, special thanks to our waiter for this evening moment, he was really helpful and understanding: I have some allergies...and sometimes, it’s difficult to find something to eat! This was really really good! Thank you again!More

Very nice place, bit off the main road in Kuressaare. Cosy old mill and lot of space both indoor and outdoor. We were not that hungry and ordered only cheeseballs, garlic bread and snack platter for two and beer. Cheeseballs were delicious and also the...snack-platter. Unfortunately the garlic-bread sticks seemed more delicious than they actually were - some were kind of “wet” which totally destroyed the taste. Service was ok and fast. One comment though to the clearly young/newbe waiter - it is also worth paying attention to Estonian customers! We had two tables of foreigners close to our table - he constantly asked how was food, did you like this or that, can I do something for you etc etc while from us he did not even ask in the end if we liked the food. Yes, foreigners might give more tips if you are lucky, but Estonians will come again if they like it.More

Excellent food and great local beer at the Windmill restaurant. Staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgable. They gave drink recommendations for the food which was inspiring! Red currant wine with wild boar was a fantastic combination. We went here with our family and we would...come back again.More

Veski has always been a special place for me. Since I was a child me and my family came here to eat and celebrate birthdays. Now, I still visit this place with my partner every Summer. We love the good food, friendly service and the...history of Veski. It offers very local traditional food. We will sure be back next Summer as well! ;)More
