Food Scene
This is an Asian/Thai restaurant which everyone who comes to Tallinn loves! The ​coolest thing about this place is the interior - When you go there you can't stop photographing. The interior there is made by an artist named Soho and the other owner who collects old ancient things from Asia and brings them to this restaurant. There is another bar in the same house Manna La Roosa - Where you can get the best cocktails! Most exquisite new Asian fusion restaurant with a ​crazy amazing interior and authentic top chef from Thailand running the show. A must for foodies and design fans. The house with a history that dates back to 1881. Started with a cocktail and restaurant venue downstairs and swarmed upstairs. A crazy-ass old school renowned artist Soho Fond has really outperformed himself to put together that unbelievable mix of Indian authentic art with self-created kitchen new style trippy psychedelic combo of amazing art from history to in-spot improvisation. All that sounds too crazy to match but it does in its freaky-crazy way. The luminance and flow of the venue create a perfect atmosphere to enjoy all the specialties bursting out from the depths of our kitchen. That department is managed by authentic Thai Chef Khampan who really knows where his knives lay at. That guy is sharp in cuttings and layings and makes your tastebuds go crazy. Really a place to check out if You are en route to bliss and new levels of having been treated. That wicked mix would give satisfaction even to Mick Jagger, who has a hard time getting one.

WELCOME TO FRANK & FRANK UNDERGROUND! Founders of FRANK, Mary Jordan and Priit “Julm” Juurmann, have been many things in their lives – an artist and film director, world-traveling DJ and scene-defining restaurateur. Most of all they are free creative spirits. Their shared vision has landed spectacularly and suitably in the heart of Tallinn's Old Town party district. In the historic art deco building, hidden as a secret treasure in the narrow Sauna street FRANK was opened as one of the coolest vibrant metropolitan restaurants in 2014. Presented in a clear and striking manner, the vivid and eccentric spirit of New York, London and Mumbai come alive in FRANK's impressively well-balanced interior. Like an ode to the fading area of cool grandeur. Red leather banquettes. Brass. Black lacquer. Victorian white. Gold leaf gilded signage. Whirling ceiling fan. White marble. Bentwood lounge chairs. Ancient, timeless and ultra modern at the same time. The surprisingly extensive and egalitarian bistro menu offers comfort food - everything from a humble but perfect English breakfast to the extremely popular wiener schnitzel and divine chocolate fondant. Accessible elegance and muted glamour is the modus operandi. The crafted cocktail list and sharp bartenders with cut glass tumblers and copper cups turn this cool-lunch-perfect-dining place into the brilliantly bacchanalian late-night institution. - Alex C Baxter Frank Underground, remains dedicated to bringing unrivaled drink quality and service. The bar is no longer a bar. It’s a stage and a theater and a discreet den. A unique-shaped lounge that’s cozy and dimly lit. It transports visitors to a chic, elegant environment with intimate booths covered in mustard leather, theater lighting and an art collection from artists from around the world. This is much more than a cocktail bar – this is a whole scene presented like the old social clubs of New York, London or Paris. A place of exposed concrete, tin ceilings, wooden floors and black shiny walls. Its an institution with counter and lounge drinking culture. From the creative minds of Mary Jordan and Priit Juurmann, this dynamic duo continues to bring their design experimentation into Tallinn creating some of the most memorable evenings and spaces. Frank Underground is open Wed-Saturday 6pm to 2am. Located on #2 Sauna Street next to Frank Bistro.

Estonian cuisine and one of the most magical dinner experience of my life. Ö originates from Swedish and means an island. Ö is also a very important letter in the Estonian alphabet. On the island, where we’re from, people talk a little different than the rest of Estonia and the letter Ö is used a lot more. Ö is just such a beautiful letter that it must be heard! The island we speak of, is of course Saaremaa, Estonia’s biggest island. So big, in fact, that they call it a land, as the literal translation of Saaremaa is Island land. The stars in our sky are the same as everywhere else, but they shine a little brighter above Saaremaa. These stars once lit the way for our Viking ancestors on their expeditions. On our expeditions for new flavours, we have found the most fascinating and delicious ingredients. We get our inspiration from the Nordic nature. Unpredictable seasons. The cold and grey Baltic Sea. Dark forests and their magical gifts. Farmers and small businesses. Hunters and fishermen. Clean air and black soil. Forgotten preservation and preparation methods. We always add a bit of island humour to our dishes. We have the coolest team on the planet! We believe in what we do and we love it! All this bound together under the light of the brightest stars is Ö.

One of my favorites restaurants who care about the environment and most of the ingredients are from local Estonian farms. Very delicious and amazing service! Kaks Kokka is the younger brother of Restaurant Ö. The diner is led by two head chefs from Saaremaa, Ranno Paukson and Martin Meikas; this place is worth keeping in mind. Kaks Kokka is a place that is always changing and is never exactly the same. The character of Kaks Kokka is not defined by state borders or compass directions – everything is based on excellent, fresh and mostly Estonian ingredients.

The most exciting maritime museum in Europe is located in the Seaplane Harbour! About 200 authentic items are on display at the historical seaplane hangar: a submarine called Lembit, a century-old icebreaker Suur Tõll, a seaplane called Short 184, remains of the oldest ship found in Estonia, and much more. There is also a ​cafe MARU and a museum shop. Globe-trotting in a submarine, having your picture taken in a navy uniform, an aquarium, simulators, throwing paper airplanes, a children's corner with drawing tools, building blocks, an authentic sailboat, and an outdoor playground – programmes and materials meant for independent visits are playful and broaden the horizon of children and adults alike.
