Magic and Sorcery
Get a taste of some modern medieval cuisine at Tule Estonia.
Situated right in the heart of the Old Town in Town Hall Square, Tule Estonia serves up a selection of international cuisine, with a focus on some things you might not always find, like elk and bear, inspired by traditional recipes.
It’s summertime, so we sit outside, but inside an inviting candlelit cellar awaits visitors, a room which is no doubt cosy on cold winter nights. The walls are beautifully decorated with medieval paintings and designs. Upstairs, there is also plenty of seating with views over the square, as well as into their open kitchen. The outdoor terrace offers a prime view of the square, perfect for people watching.
The menu has something for everyone, with everything from soups to salads, three different kinds of burgers, fish dishes, and different roasts that look big enough to feed a group. The fried mixed seafood platter is a favourite. As we wait for our meal, quite a few pass by our table. The mixed grill platter for two also seems to be a favourite. What you may not think to try, but should, are their pizzas. The thin crust pizza is one of the better ones in town, with fresh toppings and a crisp crust that goes well with a pint of house beer.
Whether dining or just stopping for a quick drink, the service was attentive and friendly.
