Opened this past summer, Salt is quickly becoming a favourite. This cosy 26-seat restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, and bookings are a must.

The dinner menu changes weekly, and lunch specials are offered daily. Classic French bistro cooking, with the odd fusion dish tossed in inspires the menu. If you want to be close to the culinary action, you can sit right next to the open kitchen, and watch the chef hard at work. Salt prides themselves on being able to source as many ingredients as possible, locally.

Like most restaurants seem to be doing these days in Tallinn, Salt advertises their menu on their Facebook page (in both English and Estonian). Staple favourites reappear, like the whitefish tartar, and variations of foie gras. As a main, we tried duck confit, served with red cabbage and parsnips, as well as the pikeperch with fennel, lemongrass, and pumpkin cream.And be sure to leave room for dessert; the tarte tatin was divine!
