Rataskaevu 16 has been one of the most popular restaurants in Tallinn for a long time, but for some reason it hasn’t made its way on to the list of Best Restaurants in Estonia. We are talking about a high-end, quality place where at times it’s necessary to have a booking in order to even get lunch. Rataskaevu 16 offers a relaxing atmosphere and cozy interior design, in addition to first class service and delicious food.
The dishes are wallet-friendly, as the starters and soups cost 3-8€, main dishes 6-16€ and desserts about 3-5€. Rataskaevu 16 is located in Tallin Old town, only a few hundred meters from the Town Hall Square, so taking that into account the prices are very reasonable. For example, the 3.5€ pumpkin soup with mozzarella and pumpkin seeds makes a great lunch on its own (speaking from experience!). For dessert we would recommend their frozen blue cheese cake, which is something you definitely won’t find in every restaurant. 🙂 The restaurant’s fairly comprehensive drink list includes Estonian craft beers as well as various white and red wines.
One of the restaurant’s unique twists are the waiters’ messages which can be spotted in various places, such as the bill or under coffee cups. Usually, these small notices tend to bring smile on the customer’s face. 🙂 Did you know that there are 644 Tallinn based restaurants listed on TripAdvisor, and Rataskaevu 16 has been ranked number one! The restaurant has really impressed us and thus deserves to be on our Restaurant list. What’s more, Rataskaevu 16 is great for families with children, as they have a special play area for kids, as well as children’s menu. More information can be found at the Rataskaevu 16‘s website.
