Best restaurants in Tallinn in 2017

Add to Favourites

If you wish to experience the best food in Tallinn you should choose your next restaurant from the culinary master book White Guide Nordic. The guide divides restaurants into four categories; global masterclass restaurants, masterclass level, very fine class restaurants and fine level restaurants.   

Restaurants are assessed by 30 representatives of the food media, from whom 12 are from Estonia and 18 from abroad. Every place is judged several times with half of the judges being local and half of them from abroad. Judges visit the restaurants anonymously, decide by themselves what to order, and also pay the bill on spot. Focus of the evaluation is on food (maximum of 40 points) while drink list (maximum of 20 points), service (maximum of 25 points) and milieu (maximum of 15 points) are also taken under consideration. Maximum points that a restaurant can receive is 100. Based on the assessment the restaurants are divided into categories.
