Food is tasty. But 14.00 already a lot of drunk people who are too loudly behaving. Enjoying salmon with some grilled vegetables. Toilet is dirty and badly smells.

After the face-lift the pub has improved all the time. Waiters getting more and more friendly and no collapse in food quality. I would say that lam chops are one of the best you can get. My recommendation on the menu. But do not expect to get fine wines or special beers here. Maybe one day they will arrive.

Est part of Estonia is off course poorer than Tallinna surround (same things all around in Estonia). But how it´s a possible to get three course meal and a botle of quality wine with 30 €? This might be a real level in Estonia, comparing incomes/cap. Reasonable prices, well done food and mediagre service. If buss tickets, turn-return, costs from... More

I liked this place a lot due to the fantastic customer service! The place is really cozy both for family lunches/dinners or some drinks with your friends. Did not try the cusine this time, but they serve coffee of great quality (highly recommend). Thumbsup for the hardworking and always shining barmaids! You were amazing!

Wironia hotel renewed this nice and familiar living room. See my review of Wironia restaurant separately. I visited privaat pub for one and half years. It became very close to me as a specimen of an Estonian country pub with its Russian and Estonian speaking customers. Maybe a jump back to times when Estonia re-gained its independency. But time changes... More

Very local, very Estonian. These places cannot be found in big cities. Large cottage tables. Normally quite empty but fills up on Thursday evenings when karaoke night. Once again a proof that Estonians are singing folk! Be aware of queueing rule at bar desk to get a drink - also very Estonian. It took several visits to get a smile... More

The Privaat pub is located on the first floor of the Wironia hotel in the centre of Johvi. A pub with friendly service and a pleasant atmosphere, we offer tasty, home-style meals and barbecue specials. Our pub is one of the few places you can try beer from the Sillamae brewery. We can seat up to 100 people, and also provide catering for groups (with special group menus) when arranged in advance.
