The restaurant is in main Town Hall Square (Raekoja Square). Food is not bad, but has lot of room for improvement. Service is fine. For being in the most touristy place of Tallinn is not bad.

As noted by others this restaurant has a huge seating area in the cellar. Nicely appointed. Many tour groups at long tables. But food was prepared quickly and it was OK. Not great, but not awful. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing (chicken). Wait staff was very friendly and attentive.

A very cool old style Estonian restaurant in the Old Town City Square. I went here with my tour group as a farewell dinner to Tallinn. Service was fantastic despite our very large group. Food was also very good. I usually stay away from restaurants in city squares as they tend to be very commercialized and of mediocre quality but... More

Nice atmosphere wonderful staff. Had the pork neck with our tour group. It was fine but I'm fussy so this is why the rating. Not bad but not exceptional in my opinion. The potato soup was the best of the evening

One of the many eateries on the main Town Hall Square, this establishment is far larger than it would seem at first glance so even if the weather stops you from eating out on the square, there will be plenty of space inside. We enjoyed a simple, but well prepared meal. Service is efficient and staff are pleasant and welcoming... More

We were attracted to a "medieval lunch". They have a long way to go if it´s ever gonna a resemble medieval times. Not very good with foreign languages, also.

Had never had Estonian cuisine before, thus could't judge how good they were. What we had were really tasty (pea sou, fish plate), and we enjoyed the hospitality. House black beer was a plus!

We chose this place in the old lower city square due to the friendliness of the young person who was advertising the restaurant. He wanted us to eat there, but was more than happy to tell us about other places and the local activities. The food was really great and they didn't have a problem with my ordering a small... More
