Here are the restaurants in Tallinn that we like the most:

1. Cafe VS – Indian food (address: Parnu mnt. 28) tel: +372 6272627

Cafe VS restaurantThis is our favourite Tallinn restuarant. If you like a good curry and also great value for money you’re very much in luck. Cafe VS boasts the best Indian cuisine this side of Brick Lane, and has classic dishes like Jalfrezi, Tikka Masala and Madras, plus many other great things to choose from. If you fancy something other than a curry there is an equally delicious European menu. Cafe VS also doubles as a bar, so after you’ve stuffed yourself silly, you can enjoy a cool beer or one of the many great cocktails. When trying to find Cafe VS, look for the big metal submarine door and you’ll know you have come to the right place! This restaurant also has very interesting interior design.

2. Eesti Maja Restaurant – Estonian food (address: Lauteri 1) tel: +372 6455252

Eesti Maja restaurantWhat do you mean you haven’t tried the world-famous Estonian cuisine? Whilst in Tallinn, you simply must grab the chance to sample some of the country’s best dishes, at the renowned Eesti Maja Restaurant. Favourites form the menu include: marinated eel, blood sausage, jellied pork, baltic sprats with bacon and, of course, tongue in horseradish sauce. A lot of the national cuisine descends from peasant times, when the frugal lifestyle of the average Estonian meant they had to make the most of any potential meat sources. Presumably that’s why you’ll find a dish on the menu called ‘A Fellow Estonian’. The unfortunate victim also comes with free drinks and dessert as an extra incentive towards cannabalism!

3. Silk – Japanese food (address: Kullassepa 4) tel: +372 6484625

Silk Tallinn restaurantThis place is trendy, stylish, and has great food. For a restaurant in Tallinn it is quite expensive, but worth it! There is a huge selection of creative, beautiful looking and very tasty sushi, as well as other typical Japanese dishes. The fish is very high quality and you can see that a lot of thought and effort has gone into preparing the dishes. The interior design is modern and minimalistic with cool wooden floors, sushi mat wallpaper and velvet covered chairs and sofas. This restaurant is in a great location, just off of Tallinn’s main square. The sunny patio gives you free entertainment with your meal from watching the crowds of people going by. For dessert, you can try the green tea- or tempura-flavoured ice cream, plus the many other delicious treats. There is another Silk sushi location at Navra mnt. 15.Silk restaurant website.

4. Olde Hansa – Medieval (address: Vana turg 1) tel: +372 6279020

Olde Hansa restaurant in tallinnIf you have ever wanted the experience of being at a feast from the Middle Ages, then you won’t get any closer than a meal at the Olde Hansa restaurant. The dedication to detail in bringing Tallinn’s golden age back to life is quite incredible. Wooden benches are laid out with boar skin covers, flickering candles provide atmospheric lighting and a group of string-plucking musicians complete the ambiance in style. And now for the food; the recipes and ingredients have been meticulously researched to make sure your dinner tastes exactly the same as in times yore – even the methods of cooking have been copied! Plus of course you are served by buxom wenches in traditional costumes and can order wash down your feast with a few jugs of honey beer. Olde Hansa website

5. Vertigo – International (address: Ravala Pst. 4, 9th floor) tel: +372 6663456

Vertigo restaurantLocated in the 9th floor penthouse of a stylish new business complex in Tallinn’s quickly modernising city centre, Vertigo is one of the newest, and most talked about upscale restaurants in Tallinn. Estonian celebrity chef Imre Kose’s latest venture is three restaurants in one: sexy daytime brasserie and lounge, classic fine dining area with exclusive menu, and a summer rooftop terrace twice the size of the indoor space, serving famous Mojito Deluxe cocktails. There are fantastic views over Tallinn’s Old Town and out to sea are. The fine food uses the freshest ingredients and international expertise to create a modern Estonian cuisine. Enjoy sushi, risottos, and grill and wok dishes in the savvy lounge or head to the formal fine dining restaurant where you can try Ostrich fillet pastrami with mousse de foie gras and truffle salad. A great Tallinn restaurant for some sophisticated indulgence.
