My reviews are my impressions from this year's Tallinn Restaurant Week that I shared in my Facebook album "Ignoran't review". The first restaurant this TRW was MEKK - Modern Estonian Cuisine - place we always wanted to visit. Well - best if we didn't visit it at all. The waitress started with rude refusal to sit us by the window... More

Great drinks, fantastic food. I had one of the best steaks I have ever had in my life. It wasn't inexpensive, but it was well worth it. Highly recommend.

It took me a while to understand what Estonian Cuisine really is. Its quite earthy, various vegs and products from farms, all prepared and combined in an innovative style. We had steak and Fish and were not disappointed, to the contrary, we enjoyed the sauces and the presentation of the food.

Had the 35 euro 3 course meal and it was very good. Tried several red wines and all were also in high quality.

We had a great lunch break in this cozy restaurant, just located a bit out of touristic route. The service is excellent, as well as the food is definitely "Nordic", with high attention to the detail. Taste the pike fish and great desserts. Value for money!

Neither the food or the service is to complain about but something is missing. Maybe its an added twist that is missing. Everything is predictable and delivered mechanically, that little extra is missing, that little extra in cooking and service that makes a restaurant reach the top. Please Mekk, give us the next step.....

Drinks good. Food was good. Service was good. But nothing special that i need to remember. Asked the beef to be medium but it was well-done. Nobody came to check if everything was okay, so thats why we complained about the beef afterwards.

First courses: smoked eel salad (but more than a salad), special soup with many flavor sand a bit of meat. Mains: lamb rolled with goat cheese and many interesting vegetables, Pike-perch with a butter sauce and salmon roe. Desert: Sea buckhorn ice cream with a chocolate cake like biscuit and caramel sauce. (Sea buckhorn is a somewhat tart berry and... More

I've eaten in MEKK at least once a year for the last 5 years and it's always been a favourite of mine in Tallinn. However the last visit left some things to be desired. While the atmosphere was as cozy and friendly as always and the menu offered the similar great choice, the food could have been better. Also the... More
