Beautiful interior, but a little bit on the expensive side. You do not enter here with jeans and sneakers. The restaurant has old history and is beautifully restored.

this restaurant happened to be the first i found when i was ready for lunch. Although it didn't have many clients, it really ended up being better that i expected. I ordered blini with salmon roe and sour cream- both yummy and pleasing to the eye. Also had a pasta dish and that was good also, but not photo worthy.... More

When we arrived, the Volga was jammed for a special event, but we were assured that we could be taken care of. We sat, worried, we ordered, we waited, we worried and wondered if we should skip out, but then food arrived. My husband's duck magret was one of the best he'd ever had. This is the first place in...

I ate at Volga with a friend. We had one of the house menus with three courses and wines for each course (about 24 euros per person, which is expensive in Tartu). The food was ok but not as nice as I would have expected as the restaurant looks very classy. The staff were polite but very young and the... More

This restaurant looks like a night-club from the 1930s with a dance floor and a small stage for a singer and a quartet, as one can see from films depicting that era. The service was correct with waitress in white gloves. Food was perfectly adequate but nothing sensational. The set lunch with three courses at 15 € is more than... More

It should be the nicest restaurant in town but it's just a big one with good location and long history. The quality of the food was very poor. Wouldn't go back there.

Had my birthday celebration there along with my friends, my second event to be held there, it's all nice classy and stylish. It would be unfair to leave out that the staff is very friendly and did it's very best to adjust to our needs. Not the cheapest place around, but it's worth it.

Description
The legendary Volga Restaurant is situated in the old town of Tartu, in a Classicist building constructed in 1783. The interior design of the restaurant rooms restored in 2007 follows the Art Deco style of the 1920s and 30s, when the place was a favourite café of high society. The room is embellished with bright decorations restored by artist Aren on the basis of old photographs, and a beautiful vitrage ceiling is high above the dance floor. The à la carte menu of Volga, called “From Athena to Volga”, is in harmony with the service and atmosphere and offers a memorable experience for each visitor. The rooms located on two levels can house up to 130 visitors.
