From 11 until 17 June, the 15th Tallinn Restaurant Week will take place which offers top-class dinging experiences and delicious meals at an affordable price in 37 restaurants in Tallinn.
Tallinn Restaurant Week first took place in 2011, when Tallinn was the European Capital of Culture. "The level and quality of the participating restaurants has remained very high over the ten years, and the reputation of Tallinn as an attractive food destination is probably not a surprise to anyone. I believe that the anticipation of the diners for good experiences at the Restaurant Week will be even higher this year than in previous years, and the restaurant owners will be even more happy about the visitors. We want both locals and tourists visiting Tallinn to feel that they are personally invited to enjoy the professionalism and hospitality of Tallinn's restaurants. This is why the city has supported Tallinn Restaurant Week through the years - to provide support to local restaurants and boosts the capital's dining culture,” said Aivar Riisalu, Deputy Mayor of Tallinn.
"In this unusual year, Tallinn Restaurant Week will take place in June instead of its usual time in March, so it enables to give the summer season a bright start. It is no secret that the epidemic has had a major impact on restaurants, and the hospitality sector needs help to recover and revitalize. We are pleased that there are still many participating restaurants that have come out of the difficult situation, despite everything. Ten years of a successful event is already a considerable tradition, and the abundance of visitors speaks for itself,” said Martin Breuer, restauranteur, hotelier and board member of MTÜ Tallinna Restaurant Week.
Tallinn Restaurant Week was initiated by two restaurant owners who wished to introduce the high level of Tallinn restaurants to a wider audience. The aim of Tallinn Restaurant Week is to highlight the experience of dining out as one of the opportunities for cultural experience and communication. Within the Restaurant Week, a total of more than 20,000 customers are offered top-class meals at exceptional prices in two price categories - lunch 10 euros and dinner 20 euros / lunch 15 euros and dinner 30 euros. Meals are offered as set menus from the restaurants’ usual à la carte menu and they highlight the nature of each restaurant in the best possible way. Mainly local produce is used in the food preparation.
