Beautiful interior, but a little bit on the expensive side. You do not enter here with jeans and sneakers. The restaurant has old history and is beautifully restored.

I ate at Volga with a friend. We had one of the house menus with three courses and wines for each course (about 24 euros per person, which is expensive in Tartu). The food was ok but not as nice as I would have expected...More

This restaurant looks like a night-club from the 1930s with a dance floor and a small stage for a singer and a quartet, as one can see from films depicting that era. The service was correct with waitress in white gloves. Food was perfectly adequate...More

It should be the nicest restaurant in town but it's just a big one with good location and long history. The quality of the food was very poor. Wouldn't go back there.

Description
The legendary Volga Restaurant is situated in the old town of Tartu, in a Classicist building constructed in 1783. The interior design of the restaurant rooms restored in 2007 follows the Art Deco style of the 1920s and 30s, when the place was a favourite café of high society. The room is embellished with bright decorations restored by artist Aren on the basis of old photographs, and a beautiful vitrage ceiling is high above the dance floor. The à la carte menu of Volga, called “From Athena to Volga”, is in harmony with the service and atmosphere and offers a memorable experience for each visitor. The rooms located on two levels can house up to 130 visitors.
