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.

Had a romantic nightcap on a rainy September evening. Wines were nice. Nothing too speacial, but nice. The atmosphere was dreamy.

The best food, service and athmosphere for a long time. Really good wine selection and the choice of music was perfect for the place.

My wife and I had dinner here. The food was excellent as was the wine. I had a lamb dish with mixed vegetables. It was delicious and there must have been 6 different vegetables. The waiter was very good but the service/pacing was pretty slow....A great choice in Kuressaare, especially for wine. If you go I recommend making a reservation as the place is pretty small.More

The service took 2 hours and the waiters were rude. Be awere of the menu, there is lots of too expensive wines that are listed very badly. Do not use this restaurant.

Outside part was not very attractive, so we skipped the place in the beginning. However, I'm glad my companion insisted on visiting it. It was really worth it. Food was good even for the most demanding eater in our company. The interior is stylish, staff...is polite and friendly.More

They always have fresh fish from the sea and whole menu is just on point with the largest vine selection in town. I really love the interior design with a lot of small interesting details which fits perfectly with their elegant music playlists. Service is...excellent as well, they are smiling all the time and will advise you if its needed. Highly recommend this place!More

Vinoteek always has a interesting choice of local non alcoholic drinks and during many years of visiting they have stayed true to their menu only making slight changes. Very welcoming staff!
