Been there Dinning as me and my girlfriend were in the mood for some seafood restaurant.

The restaurant looks really fresh and simple with a real touch of maritime mood, with the woods and the metals. The menu was not extensive but was ok in their options, we choose some tiger shrimps and the waiter suggest them grilled, which i think it were not 100% tasty and didn´t looked fresh at all, so next time i will try the other option not grilled.

For the main courses we ate the Pan Fried Halibut, and yes it was very good with the pure and vegetables dressing it and very tasty ones. For dessert we ate the Cheese cake which turns out to be a very good surprise.

The service was good but had a very big defect, seems we were in the 00's in Tallinn and for more insistent we asked about the bread and butter while we wait for the food, the waiter just bring them at the same time of the food ( pointless ... )

Overall was a good expericence and i will come back to try the other dishes and see if they fixed this bread issue :)

clean modern interior, just down the street from the Swedish embassy. service was efficient and pretty nice, if a little cool. The manager confirmed it is a sister restaurant not of any in the UK as the below comments said, but of 1-2 in Moscow and 1-2 in St. Petersburg, owned by the same person.

The wine list was a bit disappointing. with so many seafood choices, there were a dearth of dry white wines by the glass. the small list of whites included a German, an Austrian and another forgotten on the sweet side, as well as a Pino Grigio. there should be a sincere or muscadel to go with the oysters, their namesake. we went with a cotes de Provence. The oyster choices were pretty good - Netherlands, a French fine de Claire I think, and one from Ireland. each very different but good and really nicely presented with 3 "sauces" - a Bloody Mary granita, some fruit puree and my favorite, some light curry flavored pickled onions (im sure I butchered that but it was delish). Served with nice fresh brown bread and salty butter. we also tried the bouillabaisse type of soup. pretty good. main suggestion is that perhaps the croutons are larger and home made, and the piece of pork they put in the soup was tasteless and strange. a small piece of sausage would have added ore savory and been worth eating afterwards. all in all, a good choice for our lunch.

This place is inspired by the London one, so it indeed differs from other places in Old Tallinn. Nice interior and ambience.
I went there for oysters, had them fresh. The choice is not big, but quite enough to enjoy. The selection of tar-tars complements that, though.
Staff seems to lack some professionalism and training, hope that's because the place is rather new.

I must admit I've already been to this restaurant twice and am planning on coming back. Great location, wonderful atmosphere, eager young waiters, and the food is delicious and original. The oysters are fresh and a wide variety, always something new to try. The Bloody Mary oyster shots are a must to try and the deserts are mouth-watering. I recommend the fishcake as an appetiser - don't expect anything traditional!
