Leib Resto ja Aed

This is a moderately priced restaurant that offers simple food in a relaxed atmosphere. The highlight of this restaurant is hand-made bread. Who wants to be in Tallinn and under the Tuscan sun at the same time shall make its way to Leib. This place is like a city-state on the border of Old Town, surrounded by Town Wall with superb garden inside, also in winter.

Rataskaevu 16

Rataskaevu 16

This restaurant in the old town has become a favourite of Tallinners as well as visitors, with its tasty foods and friendly service showing that every customer is a welcome guest here. A terrace is open in the summer where you can have dinner and spend time, protected from wind and noise. The bread baked on location is definitely worth a try. As this is a popular place, it would be a good idea to make a reservation. Trip Advisor has awarded a Certificate of Excellence 2014 to this restaurant.
Umami

Umami

Stepping into the Umami restaurant in the residential district of Mustamäe, you will feel like visiting your grandmother living in the countryside. This restaurant operating in a private house with a large apple orchard will earn maximum points for food quality as well as child-friendliness. The kids can have fun in the playing room or in the sandbox in the yard when the weather permits. Two Estonian top chefs Kristjan Peaske and Janno Lepik are in charge of the kitchen. Domestic hand-brewed beers are available.
Vegan Restoran V

Vegan Restoran V

A new vegan restaurant called V is open next to the Von Krahl theater, with really nothing but vegan food on the menu. The restaurant is located in a small and cosy room in the middle of the sturdy limestone walls of the Old Town, and to date, it has received nothing but praise from critics and visitors alike. An indicator of the level of the restaurant is the fact that you can seldom find a seat without making a reservation. The chick pea burger is one of the favourite main dishes. The delicious foods on offer in this restaurant will make short work of the myth that vegan food is boring.
