We chose this place because it is supposedly no 1 restaurant in Kuressaare (based on the reviews). I do not know if the cook had a bad day or it was something else but all of our choices (3 people) were mediocre at best. Both...appetizers and main dishes. Appetizers were just really bland and without any character (we tried local delicacies and white fish) and the wild boar meat was bone dry (seriously overcooked). My wife tried the catch of the day and it was served with a mountain of green salad leaves and basically nothing else. All the dishes in the menu have special wine suggestions but I cannot imagine wasting a good wine on this kind of food. We heard the comment about the dry meat also from our neighbouring table so I guess it was not just us. Considering this I cannot recommend the place. In other days we tried some other places nearby and never had such a bad experience with these.More

It's been 3 years, since I last wrote about this place and it was great to see that after all this time(Covid etc.) they still are just amazing. Stylish old building on Main Street, cozy and warm interior, absolutely great service and real tasty local...food, with matching wines. There were 4 of us andMore

Happy we chose to listen to the other reviews here on TripAdvisor and discover this great restaurant. The food was delicious, I had a venison fillet - truly amazing! And we had some fun playing some puzzle game we found on a shelf next to...our table while waiting for our food. My partner suggested to buy a cigar so we were smoking it in the cigar room after dinner. Such a great experience and very helpful and kind staff.More

Wow! What can I say? This is one of the most unlikely (this is really off the beaten track) and best experiences of a dinner outside of the Mediterranean we’ve done. Ever! Food is amazing, staff is super friendly and we were made to feel...very welcome. They fixed a smaller version of their mains for our 9 year old, not an issue! He ate all of it! This is worth a trip from anywhere in Europe.More

Best restaurant I have tried in Kuresaare yet. Super place for vegans - the menu has vegan main dish and starter. I would highly suggest visiting, the service is wonderful and the interior decor looks like rustic Italian place! Would definitely visit again in the...future.More
