The setting of this place is amazing - so unique and full of atmosphere. It feels very local and friendly and our lovely waiter (Mikk) was attentive and charming. The menu felt authentic and the dishes we had (wild boar and trout) were done exceptionally well. We also tried the local 'apple wine' and cranberry schnapps- also tasty! Highly recommended... More

As we are also the family restaurant then there were lots of children at that time you visited. We can`t handle all of them, the parents should also... More

Very enjoyable food with just enough of a nod to the past and local dishes. Enjoyed the starters in particular and the excellent service as we were in a bit of rush.

The twist of rustic and Baltic flavors is very cleverly done. I loved my Estonian cheese balls which I had as a little taster while having some Estonian beer, as my partner could not decide which dishes to taste, as there was so much she wanted to try. I found the menu great value.. This is the perfect place to... More

Interesting place to have a dinner! I am with my family- it is extraordinary building to have a tour ( interesting even for children) Everything is authentic- the interior, food, drinks and music :) The must to visit! Summertime there are different possibilities to sit outside, in the terrace, balcony, in the yard..
