Tallinn Restaurant Week 2019, Estonia
November 1, 2019 - November 7, 2019
€10 – €30
Estonia’s capital becomes a foodie heaven in November during the twice-annual Tallinn Restaurant Week when you can celebrate gourmet food and dine at some of the city’s best restaurants at affordable prices.
The first week of November is one full of discoveries for food lovers in Tallinn when both local gourmets and visiting tourists can eat at and compare the city’s top restaurants without breaking the bank. With Tallinn Restaurant Week (TRW) the city and its culinary scene aim to make visitors feel welcome and promote dining out as a cultural experience open to everyone.
Tallinn Restaurant Week concept
When Tallinn was elected as European Capital of Culture in 2011, the Estonian Restaurant Association launched the initiative to make the city’s culinary scene more accessible to locals and visitors alike while showcasing the high standard of Tallinn’s eating establishments. The original Restaurant Week concept was first established in New York with other major cities across the world following suit, including Amsterdam, London, Boston and Barcelona.
While in Tallinn, why not also visit the newly opened Fotografiska Gallery & Restaurant.
This year over 20,000 seats have been reserved by the TRW organisation, which will be offered for sale at special rates to the public. Food lovers can then choose between lunch and/or dinner, and between two fixed price categories. Lunch is offered at €10 and €15, and dinner at €15 and €30. The menus are set with a selection of dishes taken from the restaurant’s à la carte menu representing the overall style of each individual establishment, while the ingredients are sourced locally as much as possible. Guests are required to book in advance if they want to participate (see below ‘How to make a reservation’).
When does Tallinn Restaurant Week take place?
The autumn 2019 edition will take place from 1 – 7 November.
During the early years, TRW was held annually in November but due to its popularity it became a twice-yearly event from 2017 onwards when a spring edition (11 – 17 March) was added. If you miss the autumn event then try the one in spring and stay a few days longer for the Tallinn Music Week held every year in March.
