Description: In 1999, Estonia's first garlic restaurant, Balthasar, was open in the very heart of the Old Town of Tallinn, Town Hall Square, in the building of Town Hall Drugstore. Balthasar immediately won numerous fans due its unique menu and interior. Wooden interior, characteristic of a medieval building and excellent renovation contribute to the aristocratic atmosphere of the building. An excellent view of the Town Hall Square opens from t he windows of the restaurant.

We were blown away by this restaurant! The view onto old square is amazing. The food incredible! The service good too! Highly recommend the steak on the sizzling stone!

Very nice place with good service. Food was very good. The Balthasar recommended sizzling beefsteak was good but nothing extra.

We chose it because of the the nice atmosphere and the courtyard. We had the garlicky side dish and the grilled fish that were excellent. I got the pork sank but arrived almost cold. I was expecting something more. A bit disappointed considering the price...

This palace was recommended for their garlic steak served on a sizzling platter. All 5 of us ordered this.

Presentation and sides were all great. For a steak, it was just good. But that’s comparing the steak to top end US steak houses... It was cooked nicely - medium rare and it continued to cook a bit on the platter.

I’d say it’s worth a try but now that I’ve tried it, I probably won’t go back. There are so many other options to try in Tallinn!

Again in Balthasar.

Frank S. was singing background: ”regrets, I had a few”.... but you do not have to regret of dining in Balthasar, no way. The lobster-shrimp soupe will make you swallow you tongue with the restaurant’s bread. Then the main course, This time fish... good!
Atmosphere in this Tallin Classic (that must be experienced by everybody that visit Tallin) is s-g to be highlighted. The restaurant it self is a attraction.
Service attitude was excellent. Ten points from Aerotravelling.
