Seaside stunner that continues to surprise
Sitting pretty by the seaside, at the edge of the city, with a spectacular view of Tallinn’s skyline. NOA is a stunner, housed in a building that was designed specifically to be a restaurant, and there aren’t too many of those in Estonia. Set foot inside and the amazement continues ––it’s cozy and comfortable here. NOA was such an instant crowd-pleaser, it seems the restaurant has been here forever, even though it’s only four years old. It’s a two-in-one operation, with NOA Chef’s Hall offering exquisite fine dining and NOA providing casual nibbles coming out of the same kitchen. It’s particularly pleasant in the summer when guests can spill out on the popular seaside terrace, on sunny days there’s nary an empty seat to be had. NOA, along with Chef’s Hall are the flagships of rapidly developing Siigur Restaurants Group. Usually, when a restaurant group expands, attention is shifted to new projects, leaving older ones to deteriorate. It’s the other way around with NOA, the food and drink here is currently better than ever before; firepit corn, “baby” trout filet, moose pie, to name a few dishes. Head Chef and Partner Tõnis Siigur’s idiosyncratic cuisine always surprises; a portobello mushroom “schnitzel” with peas and truffle cheese is a perfect representation of his culinary imagination. Mixologist and Sommelier Sander Kink’s creative––and also non-acoholic––tipples pair well with the food, one might even say they compete with it, so if you’re not hungry you might want to just stop by for a juice cocktail...
