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.

Late lunch with friends before our hike in the forest ! We went to the Bistro, you can pick Restaurant or Bistro. The bistro has more like a self service look. It’s all authentic and it looks like you’re entering a real taverne. Food was...fresh and yummy. We had the choice between two types of meat and then you can add whatever you want (veggies, fries, potatoes, sauces etc..) coffee was very good too and we went back to the bistro to take another cake as it was very good. Nothing fancy but you can sit outside, quiet backyard.More

Big portions, interesting variety of traditional food, friendly service. But please don’t take their homemade “kali” – that is just terrible (tastes like really sweet iced tea)

Going east on the E20 at the junction for Palmse Manor and Altja fishing village is VIitna Korts Bistroo, set in a large wooden chalet-style building. The first thing you notice are the bright woven coverings on the benches. A choice of a beef and...vegetable or a minestrone soup was welcome on a day when the sun was drifting in and out of the cloud. Beetroot salad and smoked salmon on a bagel type roll made for an appetising lunch. Dishes taken from the self service cabinet were replaced with lightning speed by an alert staff. Motorway cafes could profitably learn that fresh food beats fast food, any day. Active people will want to try the industrial-size swing just outside.More

WHEELCHAIR ACCESS - POSSIBLE (only at end entrances) Side accesses are stepped. Finally, after 14 years of driving through Viitna, we decided to have lunch here. During summer 2017 on our numerous drives through Viitna we watched a new rush roof being laid to replace...the distinctly dirty old one. Combined with the white-washed walls the building is now dramatically bright. Measuring approximately 25m x 75 metres, this one the biggest kõrts. The barn style doors at the eastern end suggest this end was stabling for carriage horses as Viitna is on the all important Tallinn-St. Petersburg road. Viitna kõrts was the C18th and C19th equivalent to a motorway rest area and eatery. The local population could never have supported this size of operation. The trestle tables and benches, inside only, are traditional features of kõrts. The windowless design without a chimney is also a traditional kõrts feature - though there are now some windows at the rear. In days of yore, smoke from the fires went out through a hole in the roof. There are now two dining areas each between 25-30m long at either end of the building, and each having its own style and distinct menu. The uncounted metres in the middle are the kitchens. The western end is the low cost Bistro counter service of wholesome typical Estonian homemade food and salat (pickled cucumbers, salted cabbage, finely diced beetroot) but no alcohol. The eastern end is a more traditional wait staffed restaurant with a cosmopolitan menu and a bar service. There are patios at either end for summer style eating at tables under umbrellas. There is also a permanent wooden gazebo at the eastern end. The grounds provide some activities for children including a large 500kg bearing kiik.More

Had the pelmenis and local porridge with Groats. My first groat which is barely mixed with soupy potatoes. It has a creamy sauce of wild mushrooms poured over it along with beets and pickle. Pretty good! We also had the boiled pelmenis boiled with sour...cream on the side. Two dishes, two mineral waters, a large salad and a cappuccino for 20 euros. Local dishes under 6 euros and huge portions.More

The place has a bistro section where you can have very quickly a tasty meal. The food selection was pretty large and the food was freshly cooked. We recommend to visit the place when hunger is already taking your sights ! :)

We went to eat there today. This is really nice place if you go there. I have visited this place several times. Unfortunately the food I ordered was really bad today - this was a pork with mashroom souce and with potatios. Pork wasn't properly...cooked, it was badly seasoned and not nearly cooked, (just warmed). I just could taste it once and I couldn't eat more - it wasn't good meal at all. And the prize for that meal was about 11.50 euro - too much for bad experience. The dessert was around 5 euros and this was deliceous, but next time I think twice before go to eat there.More

Great place in a wooden hut, near the main road to Tallinn. It's based on self-service and there's no English/German menu (that I could find). This attracted me and I enjoyed a nice meal. It can be a bit adventurous but this way it's easier...to eat what Estonians themselves eat too. There was a wide variety of people in there: tourists from a touring car, truck drivers, local Estonians (from Russian descent mostly I think) and some individual travellers like me. People tend to share their table. Also there's a strangely cheesy souvenir shop in the same room... Not a place to eat every day, but I enjoyed my visit a lot!More
