Ate here after getting encouraged in by a man in a medevil costume, unusual for me to fall for this but he was a nice guy and working hard so I went in.

I had salmon with potatoes and vegetables as sides. Salmon was well cooked but a touch over, typical of all fish I had in Tallinn and vegetables were a bit greasy but ok to eat. Desert of chocolate cake was fine but the deserts were limited in choice, as were the mains for that matter. Overall a decent place but price makes it average despite location. Wouldn't discourage people from trying it as it wasn't awful. Service was quite relaxed, to the point of inattentive.

Came here with my family on our first night in Tallinn. We didn't have much expectation but this restaurant was a big surprise. The food was delicious and the portions were big enough. The stuff was very friendly and helpful. We were served by Christian. He was nice and came with food and wine suggestions. Five stars from us. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

After an exhausting tour around Old Town, I decided to have lunch. After a little bit of searching I came upon this place. A server gave me a table, which had an amazing view of the Town Hall and the Square. The menu had a lot of good choices, so it was quite difficult to choose my meal but I went with the black angus beef burger and oh boy am I happy I did. The meat, the crispy bacon, the salad between it and the fries, it all was really good!
The service was nice and quick, my waiter always had a smile on his face and was really polite. He also gave me some great advice on which dessert I should eat, so I went with the classic creme brulee. It was amazing, just what I needed to finish off my lunch!
Next time im in Tallinn again, im sure to visit this place again!

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.
