One of my favorite restaurants in Tallinn, Estonia is the charming Rataskaevu 16 in Old Town. A local and visitor favorite, this restaurant serves mostly organic cuisine inspired by Estonia’s Baltic coastline. Here you will find modern interpretations of traditional Estonian food as well as international favorites.
Inside the bright and airy space, you’ll sit at tables which rest on hand-painted wood floors, sit with your back to historic stone and wood walls and experience a cozy atmosphere. The servers are friendly and quirky, leaving notes on napkins like: “You’re special” and “you’re pretty”. A few favorite dishes include smoked salmon with Estonian black bread and dijon creme, grilled cod, fresh summer salads and homemade mint and assam iced tea.
Don’t miss Rataskaevu 16, it’s one of Tallinn’s best.
