Just dropped in for a beer and the choice is unbelievable. Largest selection of Estonian and international beers including a great choice of Belgian beers.

I was here for a business dinner. The atmosphere is very nice, and the cuisine is original but in touch with Estonian tradition, at least according to our Estonian friends. Good wine selection, and interesting dessert choices.

The first thing you'll notice about Põrgu when you open the door is the steep staircase, which in my opinion adds to the feel of descending to hell. Behind the second door you'll be greeted with a warm smile and a hello from the amazing...More

Todella hyvä hintataso, laaja olut valikoima ja hyvät perusruuat. Paikka ritarihenkinen maan alle tehty tyrmä, mutta sopivassa mielentilassa menee niin juomiseen kuin syömiseen. Very nice place and a lot cheaper comparing to other gastros at old tallinn. Nice little menu for eating and a huge...More

We came here on the recommendation of our host and we were not disappointed. My partner had the noodles and I had the grilled pork chop. Portion sizes were excellent and the food was delicious. The restaurant also has a fantastic selection of local beers...More

If you’re looking for a pub in Tallinn to sample the thriving Estonian craft beer scene, look no further than Põrgu. Located in a cellar in the Old Town next to St. Nicholas’ Church (Niguliste kirik), the atmosphere is perfectly Tallinn. Põrgu has a selection...More

I loved this place, from the moment I opened the door and walked down the stairs into the basement bar/restaurant. The beer menu is as long and varied as the content of a Dostoevsky novel, including about four pages of just Estonian beers. Estonia only...More

Obviously the pork was still partly frozen when it hit the pan. This is quite unforgivable as it's an obvious health risk. Still, the selection of beers was excellent - just stick with those. You can't get tapeworms from beer. The restaurant also has a...More

We made a spontaneous decision to eat here one night and glad we did. The bar is down a flight of steep steps into a vaulted ceiling bar. Extensive beer menu and also you can buy wine in 50cl carafes. Waitresses were excellent, service was...More

This is nice restaurant for sitting with friends. I've never tried the food here, so no clue about that, but the atmosphere is nice in the historical basement. The stairs are not suitable for drunken people, so don't drink too much. When you visit, you...More

Believe it or not, but it’s good to be in „Pórgu“. An unbelievably large selection of draught beers and their bottled cousins, unearthly delicious à la carte dishes and an almost holy atmosphere. All this makes „Pórgu“ seem like a paradise on earth, where you can feel free and let yourself be carried away by tasting pleasure. *pórgu in english - hell
