Vanaema Juures Restaurant (“Grandma’s Place”) is only a stone’s throw away from the better known Rataskaevu 16 Restaurant, but itdg certainly offers equally good food and drink. Where it stands out, is the most friendly and helpful service which can best be described as “second to none”. The Menu is extensive and varied to cater for individual tastes, with a... More

You need to make a reservation for this establishment. We ate there last night on the suggestion of fellow TripAdvisor contributors and were not disappointed. Some people were turned away because there were no space tables. The food is honest, local cuisine. The serving sizes are generous, were hot when the arrive at the table and came out intimely fashion.... More

Recently my wife and I went to Estonia. We were lucky enough to have friend coming from Tallinn, who told us about this place. We made reservations (recommended!!!) and came with an empty stomach and left 2.5 hours later happy and with no room to spare in our bellies. The food was as you expect to get from your Mom....

This decor of this basement restaurant was homey and cute! It was quite busy on a mid-week evening in early April, but as it was early (6 pm), we were able to get a table. The waitress was friendly with good English. We ordered the elk stew and grilled salmon - both excellent! The Estonian rye bread was fabulous! And... More

Lovely small restaurant in a cellar in the Old Town, Tallinn. Difficult to find but look for the "frying pan" above the building. Good local food, very popular, so book for Fridays and weekends, not expensive, wine etc very reasonable.

This little underground restaurant locates pretty close to Old Town square. It has only a few tables inside, feel like running by a family. We ordered Grandma's Sunday Roast and Elk Stew in Beer as main dishes. They were very delicious. Appetizer and dessert were good as well. It's definitely a great Estonian dinner in reasonable price.

remember your grandma cooking delicious simple and tasty food. this is just the right spot. Delicious pancakes with homemade jam and all the food edible and savory. . Although simpler than gourmet places it lacks nothing and makes your heart a softer spot

We ate too much lunch earlier, but needed something before bed. We ducked into this cute little restaurant for just a drink and nibbles. We had a salad and appetizer tray of smoked meats, and of course, dark bread and herbed butter. Delicious, and just what we needed. Avoid the touristy places, there are so many restaurants in Tallinn.
