I had the six course tasting menu (79 euros). Expensive, but excellent food and service. Although the restaurant describes itself as Russian, the cooking is better described as International, with a Russian slant. There is also a menu of accompanying wines, should you wish, but that is also very expensive, and the sensible sommelier suggested a couple of glasses of... More

Have visited atleast 5 times. The place is located inside the 5-star Telegraaf hotel. From may to september they also have a "summer terrace" which is pretty much surrounced by 4 walls. Service level of a typical 5-star hotel restaraunt? You cant go wrong with this place.

Service and food was top notch. Lot of different good tastes and of course superb personal service. Not the cheapest place in town (read: expensive (but so good)).

Food is good and the service is not too bad. Pleasant surroundings and was easy to book online. Attached to the Telegraph Hotel it's very central and easy to find. However, the whole experience is spoiled by the ridiculous overpriced wine. I know wine is not that cheap in Tallinn but this place is having a laugh. Beer prices were... More

This is my fourth review of Tchaikovsky/The Telegraaf Hotel. During a cruise to Tallinn with some friends, we decided to give the Telegraaf Hotel and their restaurant Tchaikovsky another shot. As you can see in my previous reviews there were many things that weren't to satisfaction Like always the hotel management responded that they have discussed the issues and they... More

We had the entire tasting menu and boy were we treated like kings! The food quality and innovation was top notch. The only downside was that we ended up paying over 200 euros per person

I don't even know what I could say about this place. Tschaikovski has always been a synonyme to the excellence. And so it is. Excellent in its every bit. The best service in town, live piano music, festive and fancy ambience. It is a perfect place for celebrating a special occasion- wedding anniversary, engagement, graduation, you name it. It's a...

OK food - but we had expected more when we entered a top restaurent in Tallinn. The first appetizer were too 'sickly', not a memorable experience. The starter my partner got was 'Royal blini with classical garnishes and choice of caviar' - to much fish-taste ... the starter I had was 'Rabbit pelmeni with cauliflower and garlic-truffle cream' - much...
