    The best restaurants and eateries in Tallinn

    Which do you prefer: restaurants highly praised by professional food critics, or places loved by locals and which are always packed? A lively city needs both. If you seek an unforgettable culinary experience, make sure to check out the recommendations of the White Guide international restaurant directory. Every year, the guide ranks the best restaurants in the region in five different categories of excellence. If you’re heading to Tallinn, you’re in luck as many of Estonia's finest establishments are located here. 

    When visiting Tallinn, be sure to try some local food – either in its tried-and-true traditional forms or with a modern twist. Look for ingredients like wild game, local fish, root vegetables, and wild forest berries and mushrooms. Or choose from the spectrum of casual, classic, or contemporary restaurants with global cuisines to suit your mood. We are sure you will find a new favourite.
