Modern Estonian cuisine

Ö
Mere pst. 6E
Ö offers contemporary Estonian cuisine inspired by Nordic traditions.
The restaurant fosters exuberant ideas, dishes are often surprising and always delicious. Ö does not back pedal from disassembling old classics and reassembling the dishes in an all-new format. Dinner at restaurant Ö is much like a small show that has its own story to tell.

Leib. Resto ja aed (Bread. Restaurant and Garden)
Uus 31
Restaurant Leib’s family loves simple food made with heart using fresh ingredients. This house, comfortably situated in a quiet Old Town backyard and surrounded by an idyllic garden, offers the best Estonian food and, naturally, bread baked at the restaurant.

Neh
Lootsi 4
Neh is the seasonal Tallinn home of Alexander, the restaurant of Pädaste Manor that has been repeatedly elected the best restaurant in Estonia.

Pegasus
Harju 1
It was the year 1963 and the Writers’ House (Kirjanike Maja) where Pegasus is located was the first modern building in Tallinn’s Old Town with the restaurant in the building boasting the most modernist interior in the whole of Estonia. Today as well, Pegasus is bursting with good ideas.

For vegetarians
