Estonian eating habits and culinary culture vary from one region to the next. The top 50 places to eat in the country range from those that offer traditional local specialities to internationally recognised gourmet restaurants.

Spotting the best flavours

The first round of selection is made 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 as part of the Bocuse d’Or. Compared to some of the leading restaurants in Europe, Estonia’s best are well up there – while prices remain comparatively far more affordable.
