Not sure what the hell this is doing on RB. Great medieval looking building with poor students clad in medieval garb, most selling peanuts at stands all around town. Not sure how most don’t go crazy from listening to the medieval tunes blaring out of the speakers all day long.
Worth a visit for the historical feel but sadly it stops there, the rest reeks of a modern touristy trap. I am all for recreating old atmosphere but there is a point when it’s overdone. This is like Orlando’s Medieval Times, except you really are in a ancient city, stops there. Prices also on the up side compared to other places serving that type of food. The honey beer is worth trying; although it might be a mix of regular beer with added honey.
It’s not a beer place so technically it shouldn’t be in RB, but fck it. It’s a medieval restaurant. So if you want to drink like a kind, eat like a king, shit like a king and pay like a king it’s a must visit place.
This is a restaurant not beer bar, so you won’t find here something special except they’re own grass beer which is out of rating. But you can find here brilliant Estonian cuisine, medieval atmosphere, lovely service...prices bites you...but food is top!
Visited in 2008. A medieval restaurant, basically a touristy place but also very well made. Decor, staff, food etc are all in theme. I don’t recall the beer but we had some spiced beer and booze at least. I wouldn’t go here for the beer anyway.
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.
The service was good to excellent. Prices were prtty steep, though. It had a bit of a tourist trap like feel to it. Oh well, I was there as a tourist :-p. DFecent beer selection, nothing out of the ordinary
