Close to Stockmann and fairly central. Not the most interesting selection these days, but a decent selection of industrial beers, mostly pale lagers. About 10-15 from Russia, 10 Czech, around 20 from Estonia, some of the usual suspects from around the world and a small selection of ales from England. Three beers on tap at the time of my visit (Černovar Černé, München Vaskne, München Hele). Nice and friendly service, but completely empty on an early Friday afternoon. Rather cheap.

Used to be a great place, but almost dead now. About 10 ta6 of them were not available. Loud russian disco and barmaid who doesn’t care if you leave or ... well you better leave.

Probably your best bet in Tallinn, service seems to depend on who’s on: when we turned up 10 minutes before opening on the Sunday, we were invited in to sit and wait, and service was excellent; on the Tuesday it was friendly enough but didn’t seem quite the same. Not all the beers are available at any one time, though if you try to avoid ordering Christmas beers in September you’ll probably do OK. Most Estonian beers are listed, AFAIK, with a good selection of Russian and Czech. Belgium is limited to Stella, Leffe dark and light, and one of the sugary krieks (though this is under NZ for some reason I couldn’t fathom!) Estonian beers are all 30EEK, except Saku Kuld - other prices are similarly resonable, especially considering you’ll pay 55 or so near the main square. The projection TV seems to show Eurosport or VH-1, not that the radio gets turned down for VH-1 - Pink Floyd and Lily Allen DO NOT MIX :) Wide range of food, from snacks (including chicken crops!) up to larger meals - the soups and dumplings we had were excellent. Haven’t tried the larger meals so far. Presumably the fish dishes don’t involve pointing at the fishtank and saying which one you want! Light switches for the toilets are outside the door - be prepared to yell if it suddenly goes dark!

gnoff  (400) Mölndal, Sweden | April 13, 2009
Visited April 10, 2009, when it was fairly slow night, though they had a band playing later on. Also got back April 11 and turned in the door since they charged 50 to get in. Once more in April 12, when it was a slow day. Good service. Didn’t try eating. Rather big selection of bottled beers, was easy to find something new to rate, also had one Sillamäe on tap. Not to high prices, 30 or 35 for most bottles. Was a bit confusing since they kept changing which door you was supposed to use to get in, almost thought it was closed on the 12th until I checked one more door and got it...

Sillmae is back on tap as of Sept 24, 2008. Wonderful stuff. I walked into the place around noon. I was the only customer, but staff didn’t even glance up. Had beers and staff became communicative on last beer. The staff is young, hot Estonian women with attitude, who do not speak any English. Probably some of the rudeness is language issues. I could forgive my waitress, but she was easy on the eyes. Selection is still biggest in Tallin and prices are great. This has to be a must stop on any trip to Tallin. My major complaint with this place is the total lack of atmosphere. It is downright depressing, like a pre-independence Soviet style cafe.

Note - when you see prices in other people’s reviews, convert 16 EEK to 1 EUR.
This is no longer completely true:
For Estonia, a wide range of beers. Tasty snacks. Pleasant surroundings, but not one that makes you want to spend a long time there. No Sillamae any time in the last year :-( In 3 years, it�s got a more restricted range, but at least it more often has Sillamae.

This place appears to have the best bottled beer selection for Estonian beers in Tallinn as well as Sillamäe München on tap but the service is very slow sometimes and the staff can appear rude although maybe this is just my bad luck or down to linguistical problems and cultural differences. I feel that they could be a bit more adventurous with some of the Estonian bottled beers and maybe they could occasionally stock a different Sillamäe beer from time to time but overall, it is not a bad place purely for the beer on offer. The food I have sampled a couple of times and it was good value and fairly tasty. I would recommend this place to people who want to try as many Estonian beers as possible as this place has more on offer than any other place I have encountered in Tallinn.

Very cool looking place. It looks like it was carved from rock in some parts of the interior. Bench seating. 9 or so taps, 70 bottles. Set inside what looks like an old guard tower. Staff was helpfull and gave us free snacks.

This should be a great place - loads of beers including at least 30 Estonian (although not enough from smaller brewers IMO) and Sillmae Vaskne on tap - the star of the show. However, the staff were rude and unhelpful when we visited (twice) hence the low scores.

Stocks a vast number of Estonian beers, as well as imports. What’s more important: They’ve got Sillamäe. Don’t leave here without trying out that gem.
