Hello fellow budget hunters,
So I loved Tallinn, it felt like a trip to Disneyland with less rides or like I was in a medieval fairytale! The people wearing costumes just made it feel like we had gone back in time! This is my review of III Draakon Tallinn.
Our Airbnb host recommended going to a medieval restaurant and said that he had visited this particular place more than once.
Typically we looked it up on Google reviews and trip advisor which was hilarious. A lot of people didn’t like how rustic it was and that there was no official menu.
That and half hadn’t read the signs stating there was no flash photography and to give a coin to the landlady… hence why they were ‘overcharged’.
The III Dragon is in the main town hall square, within the town hall building.
If you already in the old town then it is fairly easy to find, although do not mix it up with Old Hansa (around the corner) which is a more tourist priced version of a medieval restaurant.
The Third Dragon Menu
So this is apparently the biggest issue for some confused tourists. The options for the menu are ‘soup’, ‘sausages’ or ‘pasties’. If you ask the landlady what is in them don’t expect to find out, it will be a sarcastic reply!
We ordered a bowl of soup each and a meat pasty each.
Don’t expect cutlery! drink out the bowl and enjoy it!
Our soup was elk and ox with vegetables (I think)! It was very rich, game flavoured and so lovely. The weather was miserable outside so I love how warming the soup was!
Our meat pasty contained cinnamon which I wasn’t keen on, but it was decent.
The price was amazing value for money I believed. The soup was €2.50 a bowl and the pasty was €1.50 and our 1€ was taken as a coin for the landlady!
Compared to other medieval restaurants it was very cheap
The soup at Olde Hansa was 7 euros a bowl, whereas our whole meal was that price.
I loved this whole experience, it was so much fun. It was very busy and I loved the eating by candlelight experience.
The lack of menu was fun, the soup was insanely good and I felt very happy here. The whole experience was a great novelty, with lots of humour and very entertaining!
I can understand why people didn’t like it, but as a tourist surrounded by this medieval city…. You must try it!
Embrace it all and enjoy the experience of going back in time, with phones and cameras – also probably a bit cleaner and hygienic!
Probably not good for vegetarians or vegans though!
Until next time
