Probably the best place for vegan in Tartu

Aparaat always helps out. I wish there was more healthier options. But atmosphere is great. One can have 3-course meal there. The always have some cakes.

Pros: Many vegan options , Great atmosphere , Good service

Cons: Often loud kids on the first floor

Beautiful place

I loved the atmosphere in Aparaat. Although it is not a vegan restaurant, they have a nice vegan burger and some appetizers which are good.

Great atmosphere, limited options

I love the atmosphere in Aparaat - it's always full and lively, and the staff is super friendly. I know that the menu changes often, but when I went, the vegan options are limited. I got the falafel starter and added a side of the tomato-avocado salad because there weren't any vegan main courses. It was delicious, of course, but it was a light meal for 7,5 €. Overall, though, I love that there are at least vegan options here because it's such a common place to meet up for dinner and drinks.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good atmosphere, Good food

Cons: Limited choices, A bit pricier than other places

Delicious vegan dishes at very nice spot

Several vegan options at a hidden hip place in the city. There is a terrace as well to sit outside. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The vegan suggestions our waitress made were really delicious! Some very tasty linzen karbonade (forgot the name!) with purée and delicious browny with ice cream. Would definitely go there again!

Pros: Several delicious vegan options, Very nice hip place with welcoming staff , Affordable prices

Delishes food

I had the curd potato and vegetable selection, and even iff I was stuffed I wanted more. Tho the curd potato should not be on the menu as main course, it's a small portion.

Cons: Good value for rhe money

Tasty food, poor choice

Vegan friendly. Interesting place, attentive staff, reasonable prices, tasty food. Menu changes daily. The choice is poor. We had daily special (pasta with vegetables, mushrooms, sauce) and burger. Pasta was delicious, burger was just good. Brown sugar for cup of tea is a little plus.

Pros: Tasty food, nice vibe, friendly staff.

Cons: Poor choice.

Worth staying and good food

I was looking for a cozy place to sit down and do some work on computer on Saturday afternoon. As I stepped in, at first I hesitated because it looked so spacious in an old decayed house. Still, the good groovy funky music playlist caught my attenttion and I was sold. It was a worth decision. The service was lovely, food healthy, filling and tasty. I had raw bucwheat and pea cutlets with fresh salad. They bring fresh soft handmade bread to the table with every order but you must ask not to give you butter to the side. Free tap water is also available and the prices are friendly😄At first I was surprised how many reservation signs there were on the table but as the time went by, most of the numerous tables were full. So I suppose that Aparaat might be quite full most of this time. It wasn´t so bleak place after all, but rather cozy and modern. Reccommend!😄

Pros: Good food, fresh bread included, free tap water, Free wifi, Good prices

Deceiving appeal

The visual representation of the restaurant doesn't meet their cuisine. I had tofu burger and oreo-orange cake, both dishes didn't reach expectations for their price. However, the service is amazing and only that would make me give a second chance to the place if ever again I'll be there to make the decision.

Pros: Place looks nice, Welcoming service, Serves fast

Cons: Hard to have conversations, Seating is unpleasant, Food is over-seasoned

Best place in town

Very many vegetarian and vegan options available, including daily specials. Everything is delicious, very wallet friendly and the place has an amazing atmosphere. Might require prebooking, especially during the weekend.

Pros: Tasty, seasonal food, Cheap, Great atmosphere at a historic spot

Cons: May be full on weekend evenings

Vegan options

One of the few restaurants in Tartu that serves some vegan food. The chickpea burger is the best option, it's delicious and really cheap. The thai coconut soup is also really good, but you need something else also if getting it as a main.
Cool looking space. Lots of seating available.

Pros: Some vegan food, Cheap, Modern feel

Cons: Could have more vegan choices, A bit of a walk from the centre for Tartu standard, Very popular, sometimes can't get a table

Tasty chickpea burger

Chickpea burger is 4€ and it's filling and tasty.
Aparaat is a popular place, sometimes it's not possible to sit down.
Pleasant atmosphere.
Friendly staff.
