We had the 'September Menu' - three courses without choices. The food was creative and delicious; and the wine pairings taken by us with the first two courses were excellent. As seems to be the case so often in Estonia this was high quality, interesting food offered at prices that even with the depreciation of sterling against the euro following the Brexit vote (I refrain from commenting) are still great value for visitors.

Pricey for every day but this was a wedding anniversary treat that didn't disappoint. World class cuisine (who's have thought moss could be so tasty?) and friendly, professional service. Everything was delicious and deceptively filling. Even the bread was sensational. Highly recommended.

It is not easy to find a good restaurant in Tartu. Besides MeatMarket beef we finally found Polpo. It has interesting menu and all we had, was good. Especially good were white fish and Pavlova, but also pistachio panna-cotta.

It is quite Estonian food but nice international touch. Good place for good lunch and great dinner.

We will go back! :)
