It feels like home! The location is small and cozy, the service is friendly and welcoming, the food is simple, traditional and tastes great. The price-quality ratio is amazing! A must-visit: it’s like stepping inside an Estonian home.

The food here was OK, but we weren't impressed. The smoked meat and cheese plate appetizer we got was just lunch meat and what seemed to be slices of deli cheese, none of them tasted like they were smoked. I got fried flounder, which was...More

Looking for traditional Estonian food? Look no further-this is it. Friendly and service minded staff. Their home baked whole grain sour dough bread is to die for! Highly recommended.

And this grandmother is a wonderful cook. The atmosphere is homey and beautiful. I had a very positive feeling during my visit here. It was a while ago and I hope it is still the same.

Grandma's Place, part of von Krahl's family and known for its superb Estonian cuisine, is without doubt among one of the best restaurants in the city. We offer traditional Estonian national dishes in cosy atmosphere. Bon appétit!
