A nice restaurant in the old town of Tallinn serving excellent food. I had a whitefish tartar for starter and a vegetarian avocado steak as main course. Both dishes were really fresh and delicious.

Great food and great waiter. If you like good food this is a good place. Smaller portions but I like this as you will actually be able to eat appetizer and main and still have room for some dessert.
