Tallinn: Old Town in Depth - Part 41
There is an abundance of good restaurants in Tallin so what I have chosen to do is list just a few of the more interesting ones in the old town area that offer just a bit more than food. Being a small area most restaurants are at the very least reasonable if you do not meet this standard then the level of competition means that you go out of business very fast.
This sharp, Old Town restaurant focuses on international seasonal dishes. Modern interior design and spacious rooms offer great pass time facilities for cosy evenings. On the menu are various international dishes inspired by seasonality.
This restaurant in the old town has become a favourite of Tallinners as well as visitors, with its tasty foods and friendly service showing that every customer is a welcome guest here. A terrace is open in the summer where you can have dinner and spend time, protected from wind and noise. The bread baked on location is definitely worth a try. As this is a popular place, it would be a good idea to make a reservation.
Right in the heart of Old Town you’ll find a fine restaurant known for serving exceptional food in distinctive surroundings. Maikrahv, built in a 15th-century town house, offers an inviting, medieval atmosphere and a selective array of international cuisine. For a unique drink experience, try the house shot or the kir royal.
The building may be Medieval, but both the menu and furnishings at Kuninga show a strong sense of creative modernity. Here you' ll find an array of ambitious delicacies starting from oysters on ice and continuing on through caviar, fresh lobster, lamb rib roast and more. For dessert, there' s even a ginger and cardamom flavoured green tea crème brûlée.
Tasty barbecued dishes are the forté at this comfortable, Old Town restaurant. Here friendly waitresses serve up items like grilled butterfish, duck with oven baked potatoes or beef sirloin, all in a charming atmosphere of wood and brick. Try the mascarpone cheese and chocolate cake for dessert.
Finally, I have included the option below which is more of a tourist attraction but the food is OK.
Hungry diners flock to Peppersack, a medieval-themed restaurant in Old Town, to enjoy hearty meals, sample fine drinks and witness the swordfight, every evening at 8 pm, in the lively, historic ambience of this 14th-century venue. Order Alderman Johan' s Special or Master Hansu's Feast and follow it with some mulled wine.
