We wanted to like this place, but unfortunately everything was too full of butter and cream. Also, they don't serve tap water. Pretentious much?

This place was recommended to us by a local. It has good ambience, creative food (albeit very limited choices) and exceptionally nice server. I would give it a "5", but we were disappointed that they did not accept AmEx card.More

I visited Cru with my husband during Tallinn Restaurant week. The idea is that for 15 euros you get a 2-course set menu (it sounded like a good deal after checking the regular price list). The chanterelle soup with grilled cheese was amazing, the home-made...More
