It was a very nice answer to reservation request: first impression matters! We were a party of 8 (2 olders & 6 cousins). We ate pretty much all kn the menu and liked what we got. Wines get a positive recommendation

Recommended by our local guide. Made to feel welcome by the staff and the waitress who served us could not have been friendlier or more enthusiastic. The small menu to me always shows that the food offered will be carefully selected, prepared and presented and did not disappoint in any category. Do not be put off by being a centrally... More

This was my 3rd time in CRU. This is my favorite restaurant and the food and service is excellent every time. The waiter was very polite and asked us in which language do we want to communicate. He was extremely professional, and even brought one ingredient from the kitchen to show us when we asked about ingredients. This shows confidence... More

This was my first time in CRU restaurant. I had halibut and it was absolutely delicious. The restaurant interior is not very intimate or stunning yet still stylish. The whole staff seem very ambitious about good service. The terrace in the summer is beautiful because of flowers.

Unforgettable experience! Exclusive quality scandinavian cuisine. Had lamb from a local island Hiuma and estonian cheese selection with home made tomatoe jam. Awesome experience. Don't worry, the fusel alcohol dessert will not make you blind, it must be a mistake in english menu :)

Located on an extremely touristic street, facing it through the window which isn't the most elegant view if you happen to be seated to that direction. There are two dining halls and the decoration is almost fine but has some flaws such as a strange video screen on the other hall. The screen looks very much like a 50 Hz... More

Oozing old town charm but right in the heart of the action, this hotel is the perfect base for experiencing Tallinn. The designers have struck the right mix of modern and traditional which complements this ancient building. The service is faultless and breakfast is a blissful experience. Lagle made me feel welcome at instantly at home, even remembering on the... More

Dear exitsmiling, Tallinn has a wonderful Old Town, and we are most proud to have Cru just in the middle of the busiest street. When renovating the house we respected both the initial architecture and the strict national heritage protection requirements that ensure that both the location and design of the hotel rooms is as loyal to the original concept...
