Visited this place twice, not for beer, but food. Best place to feel like a tourist.

Cool place made as a medieval restaurant. Beer selection rather poor, but the food is good and interesting.

By all means, this is a tourist trap located just off the Town Hall square in old town Tallinn. But it’s really well done, with waiters dressed up in medieval clothes, medieval music played softly over the loudspeakers and the large medieval dining hall filled with smells of rustic cooking bringing your mind back half a millennium. I tried one of their feast menus, with wild boar, and it was a rich and tasty meal. But also expensive, my night came at €100. As for beer, they served a honey infused beer called Tume meeõlu and a very interesting, strong herb beer called Tume kange ürdiõlu, both in stone mugs. I suspect both beers are brewed at Viru Õlu. Despite the high bill, I did have a good time and would recommend a visit early in the day before it gets full of tourists. Visited on 2013-06-29.

This is definitely the most touristy place in Tallinn. And even though it is quite expensive (in Estonian standards), I find myself visiting the place every now and then. The food is good, and different (medieval themed), and although their drink-list isn’t that big, they serve a number of their own special spiced ales/meads which are worth tasting. And though all the medieval costumes, the clay mugs, decoration etc might at first seem rediculous, you don’t get the feeling that they’re just trying to find the quickest way of relieving you of your money, but that they actually believe in it. Friendly service, beautiful place. Extra nice in the summer with the herb-decorated patio.

Expensive tourist place, although it has an interesting atmosphere. Beers are unremarkable. There are better places in Tallinn.

It’s a tourist trap. But having said that, a really nice one, with attention to detail. Good place to go with friends. Just don’t go there for the beers, they’re just too sweet (although served in nice stone mugs).

This is not a beer place. It’s a beautiful restaurant, and the best medieval one in Tallinn. The only authentic one (no potatoes). Be a tourist, and see the beautiful interior. Have the beers, they’re just fortified versions of simple macro brands, and screw the tick. Do the herb beer if you only want 1 of the 3, the others are too sweet.

Tourist trap and not very good value. The service is friendly (perhaps they feel guilty about fleecing their customers!!) and they really go to town on trying to be as medieval as possible. The beers here are simply Estonian pale and dark lagers with spices added.
