Absolutely brilliant, not to miss!! Located under the old city wall. Great for a glass of wine before your dinner, or dine-in in their restaurant. During the summer late evening sunshine on the terrace. Also a wine store with endless selection.

New and high quality restaurant with a deli in the new part of the city center. A very pleasant modern but sylish atmospheare, not the cheapest in town but well worth the visit if you enjoy French cuisine. Located at Maakri 30, Skyon building (the tall building with colours of Ukraine in the evenings).

Bohem cafeteria in the Old Town. This is a must visit. Great during the winter/inside and summer/terrace. Try their cakes and chocolates - my absolute favourite is the hand made "Toscana päike" = Toscana´s sun, a delicious small hand made truffel to die for!! They also serve ice cream portions and a la carte menu, if you wish to have lunch/dinner.

If you are in Tallinn during the summer, the weather is great and you wish to see the skyline of Tallinn while enjoying a great dinner - then visit Noa! 15 mins by taxi from the apartment but well worth the drive if you want to see the Piritta area. Nearby is the beach of Piritta where locals go for a swim.

Asian Aroma serves decent asian flavours and is right next to the apartment, across the small park next to the building. If you wish to have a quick TV-dinner, it is very easy to get it from here. Chinse, Indian, Thai on their menu.

Delicious Pancakes of all kinds with very reasoable prices in the center of the old town. Large selection for lunch, dinner and dessert. The place doesnt look like much from the outside (or from the inside, for that matter), but if you like real pancakes this is a place for you to go to. You will also love their prices - a large stuffed pancake with beer for less than 10€ and you wont leave hungry!

A true Classic in Tallinn, more than just a restaurant. If you are into medieval stories from Hanseatic times and atmospheare to match, this is your place. Food is tasty and waiters/waitresses create medieval ambience for a memorable dinner. Summer terrace available. Slightly touristic - or is it? Perhaps the most medieval restaurant in Tallinn, afterall!

Carefully hidden away from your sight, even if you walk by - and still one of the nicest caffees with great cakes in Tallinn old town. Near the Italian restaurant Contovente. Very cosy, jump in if you walk by or make it as your sestination at the north end of Müürivahe street.

You have not seen Tallinn if you didnt visit the Old Town. This is just 500 meters/one block away from the apartment: go accross Pärnu maantee to Roosikrantsi st (you can see this junction directly from your window), walk all the way down the street, take the pedestrian tunnel to reach the freedom Square and voilá - the Old Town begins right there! Tallinn is an old Hansa city an its history goest back for almost a thousand years. The street plan is still the same as it was when the first buildings were built - an unique feature here. Unesco world heritage site. Amazing amount of churches inside a very small area. The historic Pikk Hermann (Tall Hermann) tower is here. Toompea is the highest point of the Old Town with the Dom/Cathedral chuch (built catholic, turned into lutheran), Russian orthodox church, The Parlament, Prime Minister´s office and other official buildings, Embassies (incl Finland), and a great viewing platform for views over the city, the city wall and the harbour.

Great walking district to wander around, restaurants, old wooden buildings, new modern housing along the seaside. At edge of Kalamaja you will find the infamous Patarei prison complex which is now being turned into housing and offices. There is a prison museum at the fortress. Right next door you will find Lennusadam (Sea plane harbour) with its huge exhibition hall and museum. Well worth a visit, especially with children. Estonia´s first submarine on display here among many other things. Located on the seaside.
