Porgu is Estonian for Hell and it is ironic that it stands directly behind the iconic Nigulste Church. Love this place - excellent and fairly priced food and a fantastic beer menu. Moderately priced and service can be slow but the beer will help you pass the time quite nicely. My otrher favorite thing about hell - not too many... More

This is the second time I have been to this pub. They have a good selection of beers as well as house beers on tap. It's got a very relaxed vibe as the places in the cellar it's worth stop in. I do recommend the appetizer of patee

Great combination of craft Beer and food! Location is at the heart of Old Town but prices are still very cheap. If you know your beers, they will surely find you something interesting

We were trying to find real traditional food and were not disappointed. We just had a couple of small dishes to share as a snack: pepper lard with rye bread chips, garlic bread, baked pork ribs, Borscht. Every dish was authentic and tasted good. We tried Kvas, birch sap and one of their own brews. All were nice. The staff... More

This is definitely a must-visit place for any beer lover who is in Estonia or nearby. Great atmosphere, great selection of beers (both local and imported), with interesting selections (e.g. once they had seabuckthorn IPA). The food is also tasty, definitely high above the average of most beer-drinking places. Will definitely visit again, once I am in Tallinn.

This was my 3rd visit to Porgu. I go primarily because of their outstanding beer selection but I also enjoy their food a lot. They had a different bartender/waiter on this visit but he was outstanding (so was the other one). He was friendly and very helpful in guiding me through their extensive beer list. If you're looking for a... More

We popped in here for a couple of beers, and to check out whether we'd like to come here for dinner on another evening. None of the beers we wanted on the beer menu outside the door were available, and the barman offered no help to find us something similar. Once we'd finally chosen beers, we looked for somewhere to... More

The food was great and wine tasty. Good athmosphere and nice location in old town. Recommended also if you would like try different kind on beers, the choice is huge.

The restaurant is in an ancient cellar. The food and the beer is excellent. The food is among the best food I have tasted in Estonia. I had grilled chicken with a glace of honey, smashed potatoes with green peas, fried mushroms, cherry tomatos and brown cream sauce. The only drawback is that is rather noise with the bare white...

Description
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
