Tallinn gourmet trip

One of the most important parts of a good rest is, of course, delicious food. And here, Tallinn certainly has something to please you with!

You can start your gastronomic tour in this city with the local cuisine dishes. Estonian national cuisine may not claim to be the most exquisite in the world, but it is very nutritious, natural, and involves the use of minimum species, which lets you feel the true taste of food. Estonian cuisine consists mostly of rich dishes with meat, fish, vegetables, and bread that look more like simple peasant food.

Here, each guest is surrounded with attention and care, while the refined choice of dishes won't let you have a mite left on your plate. It's better to book a table in this restaurant in advance as it enjoys a great love of locals and tourists.
