A Pizza Restaurant at the Beach Front
Not usually a place for culinary pleasures? This one is! The OKO may have changed both its location and concept after long years at the forefront of Estonian restaurants, but its ambitions remain high. It took only a year or two for the former pre-prepared hamburgers that restaurant chains used to heat upto undergo a transformation into appetizing house craft burgers based onmouth-watering natural ingredients. Pizza is next up for a similar transformation and the OKO leads the way. The black “Nera” with octopus features a black coal-mixed crust, a generous helping ofparmesan and a large handful of fresh rucola.

The restaurant occupies the ground floor and first floor of a recently finished white-and-glass building. The vibe is calmer on the first floor, which offers a broader view across the water. The ground floor with its play space and open kitchen entices families and gourmands alike. The story of the OKO goes on...
