We have visited the restaurant for dinner with friends.
Atmosphere is very stylish, old cellar with modern twist. Friendly atmosphere with cozy lights, Relaxing nice music. Loved it all
After we decided to try appetizer sets we were all amazed by the fantastically perfect combination of all tastes. The only thing I was sad, we did not found this place earlier. The Vine was recommended but the owner- waiter, so it was also fantastic. Mostly all our food was experience of best food, which we only had in few restaurants in France with Michelin stars. So please do not go if you expect fast food, its fresh made with knowledge and love. I saw some people complained about service. Must admit its nto regular trained person, but if you have a feeling like you are at someone’s private vine cellar or castle and the owner offer you food and drinks. This is how we felt.
The burgundy duck was so fantastic, that we could not stop making sounds and compliments to the chef..
The desert we also chose smth new and interesting.. Dried plum with nuts and some maybe mascarpone. Not sure that it was but it was so perfect, that we had no worlds to express it..
Overall please come see and experience real perfect food. Best place here for sure.

Not sure where to start. Beautiful surroundings, old town cellar, modern design setting. Cuisine was a mixed bag. Pumpkin soup was well presented visually, though the taste was beyond bland. Entrees were much better. Duck breast was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was average at best. Drinks (wine) took about 20 minutes to arrive, even though we were the only customers during late lunch. Rest of the service was not much better.
Overall the restaurant has potential. Kitchen shows moments of creativity, location is central, design is nice, the service on the other hand has lots of room for improvement.

We saw a blackboard with note “fresh home made ice cream”. So, we came in to see what is so special about them!! And it was totaly worth it! Three different tastes: raspberries, strawberies and smth else. Very good!!
Oh and staff was great! I believe it was the owner who took our order! A place to come back! 10/10 ☺️☺️

We were two tables of five people. Our tour group was given special menus with less choices than the regular menu.

The server informed us about the local food movement and slow food ethos of the restaurant. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meal. This is by far the best meal we've had in two weeks in the Baltic states. Most of us had the duck breast which was very tasty. However the accompaniments on the plate – plum and black rice – were out of this world.

The presentation is beautiful. The duck was cooked to perfection. The portions are ample size.

I'm not a good judge of wine, but I did enjoy what was suggested to be paired with the duck.

The area we dined in was a bit dark. There was a few hiccups with the service.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you want a gourmet local meal. The food here was fantastic.

Our group visited the Gurme for Dunday dinner. Apart of us nobody came.
This place is definitly close to be closed. Most of wine shelves were empty. Many wines was just last bottle.
Wines were expensive. And not opened at the table... Unacceptable in such place, in any place in fact.
Food was ok. Duck was not bad, but nothing special.
Starters - snacks was nice. See pictures.
If you want to taste the tastes of Gurme, do it quickly.
