We went with a colleagues to this place. The atmosphere is very cozy, staff is friendly. Nice choice of beer or wine, as well the cocktails they have. I had a du k in citrus sause with mushrooms...and it was just delicious. Than I ordered a desert which was just fantastic. Chocolate cake with sesame ice cream and strawberries. It is a little bit strange ( never tries a sesame ice cream) but it was really really good.
Nice place to visit with friends, family or business colleagues.

Very modern and nice place. We didin´t have reservation on saturday evening but the staff kindly made room for us to eat in the coctail bar ( there were others too). I had duck and it was very nice and interestingly served, not traditional at all. Others had fish and beef and they were happy too. Staff is very helpfull and nice. Dessets also had modern take on them, we liked them.

In the center of Tartu, simply one of the best restaurants to eat meat in the world. The space is clean and modern. The service is so good, with young, beautiful and dynamic staff. The menu has many choices of meat, side dishes, wines and desserts. Everything is good!

We went on a quiet night and the staff were fine and the food was pretty good. I had the hamburger and thought it excellent. Wine by the glass was limited but that is usual.

This place was chosen based on the excellent position on tripadvisor, but it was a massive let down to say the least.

We were a group of 5 visiting Tartu and looking for a place to have late lunch/early dinner. Upon arrival we were not seated, instead we were informed that there should be some free tables in the back. There were none that accommodate 5, but we made do by taking a chair from a nearby table. The waiter came shortly after and brought us menus (the main menu was only 3 pages, none of which were nice and crisp. Also, the drinks menu was only in Estonian so choosing drinks for an English speaking group was a hit and miss). Upon ordering we were not asked how well we want the rib eye, elk tenderloin and the lamb chop to be done, needless to say that right before the waiter left we informed that all of them should be medium done. The drinks arrived first. Three draught beers, one regular from a bottle and a bottle of the special coke. Draught beers were excellent, the bartender had even poured more than 500ml marked on the side of the glass. The other beer was good as well, however it was not properly chilled. This could clearly be seen by the fact that all beer glasses except mine had a nice layer of condensate on them. There was no ice in the coke glass, additionally glass of water was dirty - there was a greasy patch floating in the water, so it was left untouched. At this point all of us became very sceptical of what is to come, but we were too hungry to cancel our order. The taco came first (even thou we did ask for all the dishes to come at the same time). The waiter apologized that he had to serve it as it was made first, but the rest of the dishes should come soon as well. We waited for a couple of minutes, but upon realizing that we might be in for a wait it was decided to start enjoying it first. The taco was very tasty, but it was finished before any other dishes came. Shortly after the server brought us ramen and two lamb chops, even though we only ordered one. Upon realising his mistake we were asked if maybe we are okay with having 2 lamb chops. Obviously that we would not settle for a dish that we did not order. At this point all of us just repeated what we were having and the excess dish was taken away. The ramen was very good indeed, noodles were of good texture and the broth was full of flavour. The lamb chip on the other hand was a disappointment. The first cut showcased a well done slice of lamb with absolutely nothing remotely similar to the nice reddish tone present in a medium done lamb chop. This was brought to the attention of the waiter, who instead of apologizing and replacing the dish straight away said that it's been cooked in temperatures that should give a medium done chop. After this point a simple question of "does this look medium done?" Was enough for the waiter to realise that the dish needs to be remade. Yet again we were in a situation where one of us has food and the rest are just waiting. As if all this wasn't enough we were told that our dishes would take another 25-35 minutes to prepare. We decided to cancel the order and leave hungry. All of us were extremely disappointed, but the waiter just kept on apologising how it's only his second week and it's been a rough day. The manager did not come round and apologise in person, which was very disappointing for a establishment that has a promising red carpet laid out at the entetance. We paid for the taco, ramen and drinks (none of which were discounted).

A massive let down from a highly rated restaurant regarding both the food and the service.
