Even the most avid gourmands will love Tallinn, as it offers a diverse array of culinary experiences. Whether you prefer a cafe in a private courtyard, an elegant, gourmet restaurant, a trendy lounge with a rooftop terrace or a bohemian foodie spot, there are places with views for every taste.
The best places to have lunch with marvellous views of the city centre are five-star restaurant Horisont on the top floor of the Swissôtel, cosy cafe Komeet, which offers the best cakes in town. You can also experience unique flavours at Issei, a restaurant located on the 24th floor of the Radisson Collection hotel serving Japanese-Peruvian fusion dishes. It also offers a breathtaking view of Tallinn and the Gulf of Finland from a height of around 90 metres.
More views to the sea can be found at restaurants in the Pirita and Viimsi suburbs. NOA has been rated one of the best restaurants in Tallinn for several consecutive years. The restaurant’s top of the line kitchen, beautiful interior and serene coastal backdrop have charmed locals as well visitors from all over the world. Another glistening, retro style restaurant in the area is Tuljak. Being a little sister to NOA, this restaurant continues to prove the high quality of the Estonian food scene.
Restaurants in the Noblessner port area are known for their stunning sea views. Restaurant 180° by Matthias Diether, a world-class restaurant known for its Michelin-worthy food and service, also offers a wonderful sea view. In a short time, the nearby Lore Bistro has become one of the main Noblessner restaurants for many Tallinn residents. In summer, Lore customers can enjoy their meal on the seaside pier and admire a stunning view of Gulf of Finland.
If you prefer a nice sea view with more affordable prices, head to the Tallinn TV Tower Restaurant or restaurant Paat. The TV Tower has a casual cafe serving small bites to eat as well as a sit-down restaurant with birds-eye views. Paat is located next to the Viimsi Open Air Museum and offers dishes inspired by local coastal culture.
