On September 01, 2013 the old restaurant was closed. Later on, in the end of November a new renter tried to open a cafe under the same name. Since February 2014 the cafe functions on a regular basis. The old decor and furniture are gone,...More

Food is exquisit and tipical estonian. Ambient is calm and relaxed and it feels like to dine in your own livingroom. It has lot of character.

Huge characterful dining space with friendly, welcoming staff. The restaurant was very calming after the hustle and bustle of the town centre. The dishes I ordered were well prepared with, in my opinion, an authentic Estonian theme. I would recommend this restaurant.

Looking for a restaurant that wasn't on the main square in Tallinn, we happened on this extraordinary place. We ate outside in the courtyard, but inside looked nice, relaxed and not too precious. Food is authentic Estonia, with interesting things like buckwheat and rice side....More

Ducked into Kloostri Ait mainly as it was convenient in a rain shower and was so glad I did. The ambience inside was lovely (open fireplace with rocking chairs!) and the food was beautiful. I didn't find the service snooty or slow ... everything was...More

Restaurant was nearly empty when we entered and yet we were asked if we had a reservation. They still managed to "squeese us in". After this, service was good and food even better. Try the pike perch with white wine & cream sauce. Creme brule...More

The service was a bit slow and we had to come to our waiter ourselves, but the food and atmosphere were very pleasant. Recommend!

So easy to miss this gem, tucked behind large doors near St Katherine's Passage. Go through the doors to a large airy space. Beautifully cooked food, apple martini's that hit the right spot and attentive but not overbearing service. A pleasant trio singing some smooth...More

Kloostri Ait Restaurant has been operating in Vene Street, the Old Town of Tallinn, since 1994. Like the mediaeval granary building for which it is named, the establishment has had a colourful history full of changes. Intimate in the evenings, when the warm colours come to life, Kloostri Ait is no less cosy during the day, when it makes a good stop for lunch. The spacious dining area is well-ventilated and there is plenty of room for guests with baby carriages or wheelchairs. At weekends, live ensembles perform. Kloostri Ait welcomes both established and young artists onstage.
