I have booked this hotel directly through their site more than 3 months ago. They answered and everything was fine. I also wrote that I was going to come early in the morning to the hotel and they said that was fine. I was really happy to have found this hotel right in the center close to all attraction. We...

I dropped here by chance for a quick lunch and it was a good surprise. I asked for suggestions as I'm on diet and the waiter was ready to propose some possible alternatives. Good quality and right price. I'll try it again in the futue

We were walking the streets around the St Mary's Cathedral where there are many nice houses when we saw the Olematu Ruutel. Being around lunch we decided to enter as the first guests. The interior was not the most exciting but finding at table in the corner where it was warm was what we needed. The waiter was quite service... More

Most of the ingredients were taken from the can like artichokes and beetroots. Beetroot feta salad with over dated vinegar stored last season beetroots was returned to the kitchen and replaced with chicken salad. In the replaced salad there was nothing green, red or yellow, just greasy potatoes, carrots, bacon and over cooked chicken. Partridge were dry, over cooked or... More

This is a restaurant in a small hotel on top of the hill. I tried the grilled lamb chop here which turned out to be fairly ordinary. It was served on a bed of couscous, some sauce and a just a sprinkling of what can best be described as garnish. There was no special seasoning on the lamb chop other... More

We were the only customers but he made sure we were comfortable and he lit some candles, changed the music more suitable for the mood and dimmed the lights. Very romantic ! My husband ate the wild boar which was exquisite! This place is dedinitely worth... More

Truly madly deeply in love with this place! Although that I live in Tallin and usually find our medieval atmosphere pretty annoying, this place is an exception. Very unusual food and friendly staff.

We had quite big group of people having dinner (15 people or so), so we were told that the food comes in an hour. That was fine for us. But we had to wait for 1.5 hours... When finally asking the waitress about that long waiting time she was very arrogant and not trying to make anything to compensate that.... More

We went here on a thuesday evening after reading positive reviews on tripadvisor. We were all alone in this little restaurant. I can image it is a nice place when it's busy and if there is a nice waiter, but this time we didn't have a good experience. The waitress wasn't kind, even when we took our orders she didn't...
