Dominic is very good, as is my rating. Holding a high place amongst restaurants makes it popular. If you plan on going there be sure to book in advance because otherwise you just cannot get a free table, even when it is random o'clock like between lunch and dinnertime. The service is friendly and the food tastes indeed well but... More

If you are looking exceptional service, excellent food and rich wine cellar - this is the place. We are frequent visitors and can recommend the whole menu. Ask recommendations for wines - you will be surprised (thanks, Juss, for making our visits so remarkable!) The place is not very big, therefore pre-booking might be needed.

If you desire a candle lit table, with great fresh menu selection and a vast wine cellar to choose from then Dominic is a must while in old town Tallinn. Warm, cozy and service is a step above expectations. A tad pricey but usually is due to cocktail or wine choices. Appetizers, main dishes and fresh deserts very reasonable .customers... More

Despite being situated in the heart of Tallinn's old town, this is not a typical tourist restaurant (of which there are dozens) -- get ready for a fine dining experience! The restaurant is elegant - starched white tablecloths and white-glove service. The food is outstanding and creative (without being over-the-top) and the wine list is extensive (check out the magnificent... More

I was invited to Dominic an evening during a business trip in Tallinn and it was a great pleasure. Their Elk was one of the best which I have had. Our waiter was very professional and had plenty of expertise to help us choose wines in their huge sellection of wines. For sure not my last visit.

It was my husbands birthday and I chose this restaurant as I loved the candles. We sat in the bay window on a Sunday and we were treated to a magical night. The service is discreet and friendly and they knew all about the food and wine. The steak was perfect and the tasty tomato soup. I loved the amuse... More

First time here was excellent, second time was perfection. This restaurant would be at the top in San Francisco, New York or wherever. The setting is tasteful without being pretentious. The waitstaff attentive and well informed. I had the duck breast and would rate it alongside a restaurant in St. Helena, Napa, which is the best I remember. I had... More
