Restaurant Gunpowder Cellar (Püssirohukelder)

Lossi tänav 28, Tartu linn, Tartu


The Gunpowder Cellar, where you can find Estonian and German dishes, has a history of 300 years. The unique interior architecture takes you back in time, away from your daily routine.

We have a patented beer, the Gunpowder Red (Püssirohu Punane), and soups that you cannot find elsewhere.

The restaurant has 300 seats, but you can also organise more private events here. Catherine’s room, named in honour of Catherine II, seats up to 25 people and the Schramm chamber, where you are seated at long trestle tables, can seat up to 30 people.

Christmas trip with a friend.

I ordered Maisitipu, which arrived cold. After sending the meal back a new portion arrived warm but was not a promised half a corn chick. Actually it was a wing and a leg, both very slim so together...



Food is terrible

Lets start with the positivs... beer is good, service is good and premises are awesome... thats it!!! We took pork ribs, solyanka and classic french onion soup. Pork ribs- rather cold, wierd taste...

Unexpected choice of location - good fun

We were a bit put off as it looked as it it might be a loud student pub but turned out to be huge restaurant with good menu choices and good choice of beer & cider. Staff friendly and food & drinks...
