On the main square in Tallin so expensive (we only dived in there cos it had started raining). Once they get you in and take your order they aren't bothered about you. Staff spend most of their time chatting and watching life go by with their backs to you. Food was very mediocre. Not recommended.

Dear LoungerLondon,

Thank you for your feedback. I would like to apologize for your negative experience at our restaurant. We take very seriously every issue related to our staff and want to make things right. If you wouldn't mind describing situation in more detail by writing email to polina@raerestoran.ee, it would be greatly appreciated. We had several cases where customers actually stayed in different restaurant as those are very close to each other on the Town Hall Square and left negative feedback to us. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time.

We had a family trip to Tallinn and it was the best place we visited! Not only was the location amazing with a beautiful view, the service was really nice too! A very friendly server got us a table and made really funny jokes and was just a very friendly guy. Noteworthy! :))
The food was really good too - everything was nicely fresh and filling.. I even had trouble finishing it all but that's because I normally eat smaller portions at home. But my family happily ate the rest:)
So in conclusion - an amazing place, totally recommend! Cozy atmosphere especially when you're outside ;))

Thank natrekt

Burger and beer for 15 euros. A good offer and you might expect the food to be small portions or drinks. But actually the burger and fries were tasty, the beer was great, the service was fine and the location fantastic, tight on Town Hall Square. What more can you expect for that price? An extra star would have been given if the waiters had been a little more attentive, but I wouldn't mind going here again any time.

We went here on our first night in Tallinn. The food was nothing special but the service was spectacularly ignorant! We sat with finished plates and empty glasses for 20 minutes while the 3 waiting staff stood chatting in the square. Not once did they look and scan the restaurant to see if anyone needed anything. Throughout the entire time we were there not a single one cracked a smile. Not the nicest introduction to Tallinn.

Had a nice meal in the square of old town Tallinn. The food was good without being special - didn't match the surroundings which were lovely. They could cancel the license of the Spanish minstrels that interrupted with Ballard which were out of place and poorly performed.

Heading elsewhere tonight for our meal.
