Dining, medieval style

Tallinn has always been proud of its medieval traditions. It's what keeps visitors coming back, year after year. The Olde Hansa restaurant is situated in the old central market building. Get a taste for the city’s past, while dining in this truly unique restaurant. Under the same roof, is the medieval shop Krambude, where you can buy medieval clothes and jewelry, along with dishes, spices, and of course the famous sweet almonds, that can always be seen (and smelled) roasting outside.
It’s not only the Olde Hansa building that is medieval. This theme restaurant has a menu and décor that has been planned with historians to give the most authentic medieval dining experience. The lighting is candlelight, of which there is a lot. The servers’ clothes, the ingredients, music, dishes, and more, all follow in this same style. The house even has a medieval WC!
Olde Hansa is by far one of Tallinn’s best family restaurants. The experience will be thrilling for parents and children alike. The menu is long, and there is one of the best vegetable selections in town.
Appetisers cost between 1-10€, mains 15-30€, and desserts about 5€. More exotic dishes like caviar and bear are a little more expensive.
