Altja Tavern

Altja küla, Haljala vald, Lääne-Viru maakond


Altja Tavern is in Lahemaa National Park in northern Estonia. It retains its thatched roof and interior design of old and is a great place to refresh yourself while you're in the area. The tavern offers simple, tasty Estonian food. If the weather allows, you can sit on the terrace, have a picnic in the grounds or host an outdoor event here. In summer we recommend that larger groups book ahead (both tables and meals). We can arrange for folk musicians to play while you're here. Everyone is welcome! In the vicinity you will find a number of restored manors and marked hiking trails.

Nice decor, okay food

The decor is what saves this place. It's obviously located in a great location and looks like a nice, old-fashioned tavern. You have to order everything at the bar, which might take a while if it's...

Poor meal even for very hungry people

It is a restorant in an ancient vilage in Lagema national park. We hiked to this vilage, so we were quite hungry :). Still, the food was very poor. The first thing to know, the oders are made...



Authentic restaurant

Good and interesting food, great Altja-Olu beer. There is a typical estonian swing in the yard. Wonderfull design and a hiking trail start just next to the area :)
