No electricity, only candle light. Troubadours. Great menu of olden day dishes and hospitable staff in period costumes. Loved this place.

This place is lit only by candles (and not so many of those). The waiters are dressed in medieval costume. They look a bit daft. The beer is served in pottery tankards. It was pretty good. I wouldn't eat there, 'cause you would not be...More

The medieval restaurant Olde Hansa is the home of a rich merchant, whose guests enjoy delicious, authentic Hansa-era meals and drinks, true period music and always friendly service. All of the dishes on the menu, including many wild game delicacies, are cooked using 15th century recipes and methods. Medieval musicians delight the guests every night of the week except Mondays. Tallinn Card holders receive a sweet treat with every meal purchased - a bag of freshly roasted almonds, on the house!
