They served us excellent chicken breast straight from the grill. As a side dish we ordered fresh salad, which – for a dissapointment – was only some slices of tomato and cucumber. On the other hand, the chicken breast was literally outstanding, especially if you...take into account the reasonable price of six euros for the whole dish (!!!). The service was also excellent. There was no hand paper in the toilet and the electronic dryer did not work. The music they played reminded us some kind of a Russian EDM festival where young people use illegal drugs... Not suitable for that kind of place. If you are looking for excellent food, this is a sure thing. But if you want to enjoy the atmosphere, I would reconsider visiting some other place.More

The service is always a top game in this place, everyone treats you well, looks after you and is very friendly. I would recommend this place for a lunch/dinner or even just drinks as the atmosphere here is lovely. They play good music and have...comfortable seats. You can sit outside too if you wish. The place is affordable but not suitable for vegans (only potatoes and vegetables).More

Food is tasty. But 14.00 already a lot of drunk people who are too loudly behaving. Enjoying salmon with some grilled vegetables. Toilet is dirty and badly smells.

After the face-lift the pub has improved all the time. Waiters getting more and more friendly and no collapse in food quality. I would say that lam chops are one of the best you can get. My recommendation on the menu. But do not expect...to get fine wines or special beers here. Maybe one day they will arrive.More

Est part of Estonia is off course poorer than Tallinna surround (same things all around in Estonia). But how it´s a possible to get three course meal and a botle of quality wine with 30 €? This might be a real level in Estonia, comparing...incomes/cap. Reasonable prices, well done food and mediagre service. If buss tickets, turn-return, costs from Tallinn to Jõhvi and having a pleasent night in hotel with 40 € (inc. breakfast) is totaly around 70 €, it´s a forth for having a quick two day trip to Jõhvi!More

I liked this place a lot due to the fantastic customer service! The place is really cozy both for family lunches/dinners or some drinks with your friends. Did not try the cusine this time, but they serve coffee of great quality (highly recommend). Thumbsup for...the hardworking and always shining barmaids! You were amazing!More

Wironia hotel renewed this nice and familiar living room. See my review of Wironia restaurant separately. I visited privaat pub for one and half years. It became very close to me as a specimen of an Estonian country pub with its Russian and Estonian speaking...customers. Maybe a jump back to times when Estonia re-gained its independency. But time changes and renovations are needed.More

Actually, that is the best place for a big company. There you can discuss you businesses, drink tea, watch TV and just relax. It works till 12 AM, sometimes even later - which actually is perfect ;) Alocohol there has perfect prizing: common beer costs...2 euros, dark one 2,2 eur, cider or jin - 2 eur, coctails approximately 3 eur. I also like snacks there. When you are in Privaat - order cheese balls and bread sticks - simply amazing and cheap :) Music there is also adorable, and one more plus - there is a special smoking room - if you are smoker. The design is cute, full of antique items and pictures. The only drawback is the service. Some of the waitresses are not very polite and caring. 8 out of 10 in my scale.More

Very local, very Estonian. These places cannot be found in big cities. Large cottage tables. Normally quite empty but fills up on Thursday evenings when karaoke night. Once again a proof that Estonians are singing folk! Be aware of queueing rule at bar desk to...get a drink - also very Estonian. It took several visits to get a smile from barmaids ;)More
