Balthasar - the first Estonian garlic restaurant was opened in 1999, in a medieval building of the Town-Hall Apothecary and is situated in the very heart of Tallinn`s Old Town - the Town -Hall Square. A magnificent view opens from the restaurant`s windows on the Town-Hall Square.
The new restaurant quickly won the admiration of the citizens, due to its unique menu and interior.
The restaurant has a noble aristocratic atmosphere, which is especially stressed by the grand wooden interior and the successfully completed restoration of the building.
As one can predict from the name, garlic has a main role to play in the meals that the restaurant offers. Visitors can find dishes flavoured with this valuable spice throughout the menu - starting from appetisers to desserts. Naturally the chef has not completely forgotten those visitors, who do not particularly fancy garlic.
Editor & Tallinn Local
I lived in Moscow for many years and often went to Tallin to renew my Russian. visa., I chose Tallin so that I could enjoy a meal at my favourite garlic restaurant! I have had the opportunity to eat here 8 times over 20 years and can't wait for my next visit!
We were recommended this restaurant at Liverpool Airport by another traveller.
We were not disappointed, We booked for our first evening in Tallinn, the food was lovely and the place took you back in time, we had been told it was a little more pricey but found it to compare well with other meals we had at different venues.
We want to go back to Estonia
and would go to the restaurant again!
