The London-trained kitchen staff at this ultra-hip restaurant-bar in the Old Town clearly know their stuff. They’ve added sushi to an exquisite list of succulent selections that already includes foie gras and Thai green curry, and the restaurant is already recognised as one of the city’s culinary hot spots, though accordingly it isn’t the venue to go to for a budget meal expect to pay for the privilege of all this great food. Catering to the rich and the beautiful, the setting is an old Soviet style building overlooking ancient Niguliste Church. Spread over three floors, this place has been sympathetically renovated to bring the architecture up to date: the space is done up with bright-white minimalist décor, all clean lines, dark wood tables, clear glass and designer cutlery, with lots of windows to keep the place airy and light. Curved plastic bar stools lend a slightly pop art vibe. A stainless steel staircase connects the levels and bright red plastic floats hang from the ceiling in a design touch reminiscent of Philippe Starck, adding a pleasing splash of colour. They do excellent breakfasts, brunches, lunches and dinners, while cocktails ranging from champagne bellinis to flavoured Martinis can be sampled in the bar, at the tables, or on the romantic heated terrace overlooking the fairy tale town below it’s a lovely venue for a date, and a popular destination for those with something to celebrate in style. So if you’re in town be sure to swing by – don’t miss one of the trendiest top spots in Tallinn.
