Spotting the best flavours

The exciting process of determining the best local restaurants, is carried out  amongst the restaurants themselves, producing a list of the best restaurants, cafés, pubs and other eateries. The list of restaurants is then visited by international food critics who are responsible for the final ranking. 

Despite the fact that Estonia has no Michelin star restaurants (yet), you’ll find any number of internationally renowned places to eat here, and Estonian chefs have successfully promoted the country’s culinary culture in competition such as Bocuse d’Or. When compared to some of the leading gourmet destinations in Europe, Estonia’s best flavours are well up there, while prices remain affordable.
If you're a serious foodie, it might be an idea to follow the route of the 50 best restaurants in Estonia as a guide on your voyage of discovery through the country’s culinary landmarks.
