Add in the fact that NOA is putting out some of the city’s best cuisine, and it’s a hot spot for visitors and locals alike for a special evening out.
Set about 15 minutes from Tallinn’s Old Town, expect to drive (or Uber, which we did, which set us back $14 there and $7 going back) but the journey is rewarded with lovely views of the Old Town in the distance, plus sunset hues during the evening hours.
Leib was the one restaurant that we had on our repeat list.
After visiting Tallinn for Christmas in December, it was such a standout that we chose to visit again during our recent return trip to Estonia.
For those wanting a more fine-dining slant, NOA Chef’s Hall is in the same building with its own space serving up a tasting menu.
For those with dietary restrictions, let their team know in advance and they can accommodate with a custom tasting offering. We knew that we’d need to make reservations on our recent trip to Tallinn so finally had the opportunity to try it for dinner this spring.It was their vegetarian options that I adored on the first go around that kept me going back for more: a carrot tartare that’ll have you wondering how on earth they’ve done it, plus a great squash entrée that seems to celebrate all things earthy and Estonian.Their staff is wonderful about assisting with pairings of local beers or wines so don’t be shy! Take away the exceptional food and you’d still have a restaurant that captures people’s interest.We shared two starters and an entrée for lunch, and everything was great and exceptionally reasonably priced.The lunch and dinner menus are the same, so it’s worth considering going for lunch if you can’t squeeze in a dinner.Also many breakfast foods that people eat such as eggs or fruit are healthy foods. To ensure our comments meet these standards, Zephyrus reviews all comments before publication and does not allow comments which contain profanity, vulgarity, racial slurs, or personal attacks.Any comments that violate these standards will be removed.Each restaurant will serve up its own incarnation of black bread with its own twist to start the evening.Even those eschewing carbs will have a hard time turning down the ever-present starter.Tallinn surprised us in a host of ways, from an impressive, beautifully preserved Old Town and a spectacular range of five-star properties, to incredibly friendly locals (many of whom speak perfect English) and an impressively progressive and digitized society.It shouldn’t come as any surprise that dining in Tallinn impresses in equal measure.
