The restaurant is very nicely decorated and with a great location just a two minutes walk from Town Hall Square.
The food is undoubtedly very good in particular the quail was excellent ;the sole a touch less satisfying.
Bread also is excellent.
But there is a but.. At a certain point the food apparently stopped coming out of the kitchen and we waited a good 30 minutes before we got our main courses. The waiter blamed the full house but for several minutes I noticed the staff standing idle behind the counter and no food being brought to the tables. I am certain there had been some mishaps in the kitchen.
However I keep a very positive score as the food was ultimately very good.

If you want to find place to enjoy lanch with sunshine in Tallinn, here, the courtyard is perfect choice. Foods also nice.

同施設のホテルに1泊しチェックアウトの際、窓の外の中庭の景色に目を奪われ、ランチを食べました。
8月は静かで、花が綺麗で、ウエイトレスさんの衣装も素敵でサービスも良かったです。
料理も品があっておいしかったです。
リラックスできて、ついつい長居してしまうレストランです。とてもおすすめ。

Nice location and atmosphere, in the very centre of the Estonian capital.

Service is OK.

Although the attempt of being cool & trendy there is a serious problem in these premises:

THE FOOD

the average quality level of appetizers, main courses and desserts has been pretty far from what should be motivated by the pricing.

Nothing worthy to be mentioned further.

Once again a disappointing place in this nice city.

When there are too many tourists....risk is increasing of ending up like this!

Had a three course meal, everything looked and tasted perfect! The location of the restaurant is great and our table was just by the window, we had a nice view of the street. That was, however, the only table with a view in that room. It’s pricy, ~9-15 euros for a starter, ~17-25 for a main and ~7 for a dessert. I would recommend going there on a special occasion though (or if money’s not that tight). The service was very polite and attentive. Always reserve a table ahead.

From booking the table to getting our coats the Cru experience was first rate especially from our server Andre. The whole ambience is superb as is the food. Andre explained carefully what we were eating and it more than lived up to expectations.
Yes it is not cheap but it is worth.
Fine dining is not about volumes of food its about the creativity of the chefs with every dish being a masterpiece. We all ate three courses tried each others dishes and were blown away worth coming to Tallin just for this.
Once again first class and highly recommended.
