Noblesse oblige

Spacious and bright, with discrete and efficient service, Hõlm is Tartu’s grande dame of restaurants, an elegant classic. Once awed by the dignity of its atmosphere, you’re bound to be equally impressed by its drinks menu. A more exclusive champagne selection is hard to find. Tartu’s dining scene isn’t exactly known for offering fine wines, Hõlm is the exception. Its food menu might seem shockingly short, but it’s all about quality, not quantity here; the dishes on offer are contemporary and refined, a quarter of them are vegetarian and have become personal favorites. Don’t miss the leek, false morel and sunflower seeds; mushroom toffee with chocolate and biscuit ice cream. You’d do well to try a glass of Ayala Blanc de Blancs Brut 2008 too. The noble restaurant is modest, perfect for a quiet, elegant meal that would only be improved by spending the night at the Hotel Lydia where Hõlm is situated. Lydia and Hõlm have taken hospitality to a whole new level in Tartu...
