Boldly Onward

The website of the Joyce promises the best flavors in the town of Tartu. Bold, isn’t it? Quite so, but not really overconfidence. The head chef Mihkel Manglus takes frequent learning trips to outstanding restaurants around the world. The resulting food is unique in Tartu. A particular highlight of the summer menu was a cucumber-almond soup, with crunchy lemon-pickled cucumber dice floating in a broth of almond milk, cucumber juice and garlic, and lime gel pulling the components together into a creamy whole that glides across the entire range of sour flavors. The autumn menu surprised with a simple tuna tartare elevated by blue mussel sauce andherb cream. Last year we found the Joyce particularly impressive for its food. The creative dishes were miles ahead of the somewhat conservative drinks selection. The latter hasnow become more interesting and varied and the service has gained confidence. If you really offer the best there is, there isno shame in saying so...
