Great food, nice atmosphere and friendly service. This was a really nice stop on our way on a sunny summer day. Both the parents and children enjoyed everything.

We visited Lilli for a lunch. Daily lunch is really affordable, but we tested ala carte. Salmon salad was fresh and delicious. Chicken fillet with mozzarella and pearl cou cous was ok. Service was great and professional and the restaurant is cute and has a...large terrace on the back. Worth a visit.More

It seemed quite promising from the outside and the interior was great. Situated in a pre-soviet time building. Staff were very nice to us and had great standards. We ordered our food but unfortunately we had to wait more than 45 minutes. When the salmon...dish, I ordered, arrived, it was a bit over cooked. Felt like it needed a bit more flavour also. It shouldn’t be said that this is a bad place because it has got some details right, however the long waiting times should be improved.More

The food was ok, but not worth the wait. Had to wait for an hour to get fries& nuggets + two soups. Then waited another hour for a dessert.

We visited Valga briefly and decided to test Cafe Lilli, because it had good reviews. We were not disappointed at least. Service was really kind and fast. Food was a real treat. Wild mushroom risotto was something very special. My roasted duck with risotto was...also great. We'll go back if we ever go back to Valga!More

Our guide/driver recommended Restaurant Lilli for lunch on our way from Riga to Tallinn and she was not wrong. The food is very tasty and well presented, the sort of thing you would expect from a capital city restaurant rather than a wayside inn.

Restaurant Lilli is located in a beautiful art nouveau house built in the 1930s that is located close to the center of the Valga city. It has a patio with a summer terrace and children's playground. It is so nice to sit outside during the...summer... The restaurant offers a varied à la carte menu, special offers on weekdays and group menus. In addition to delicious dishes from the a la carte menu, they offer fast and affordable daily meals on weekdays. Good food, good service.More

I thought that this was a very good reasonably priced restaurant. The food was excellent and portions large. I was with a group of people and everyone enjoyed their meal. We were able to preorder and so service was speedy.
