Rapture at IO

If you want to mix with the high-rollers, and join the party everyone’s talking about after you’ve finished your meal, IO Restoran & Lounge is the place to go. Nestling next to Tallinn’s wealthy Kadriorg suburb, IO recently opened to great fanfare. If you go inside, you’ll see why.

The decadence is something you really must experience. While enjoying a choice from the extensive menu, which contains sushi, plus Italian and Russian favourites, you can sip from your favourite wine (they have one of the most extensive choices in Tallinn), and watch the beautiful people of the city come and go. The menu is packed with choices, and the dynamic, friendly waiting staff will be happy to guide you through them. There is even a gluten-free menu.

Sit down in the lounge, and you will be greeted by almost tsarist levels of opulence, from the classically framed, velvet-panelled chairs to the chandeliers suspended from the ceiling. The wall contains a classical painting, with velvet curtains all around. One room contains a long table for banquet purposes, and the main lounge has round tables to seat five, and other tables to sit either two or four.

If you want to impress someone on a night out, this is the place to go. It’s crammed full of intriguing talking points, the wine on sale is outstanding, and the menu second-to-none. Although many high-profile lounge clubs in Tallinn have suffered from poor service, that is emphatically not the case here. The staff will look after your every need. The summer terrace is open and events such as a live screening of the Monaco Grand Prix that took place in May, and concerts by excellent local and international artists take place every week.

It’s great to see this addition to Tallinn’s restaurant scene get good reviews, especially so early on, from some of Europe’s pickiest diners. Take a look at IO so you know what they mean.
