Outstanding during off-season
Papli tänav is one of Pärnu’s most architecturally interesting streets. It’s quiet, with imposing residential homes, showcasing a panoply of building styles, from classic, old wooden villas to low-slung and very modern glass- and concrete building complexes. At Piparmünt, Chef Vladimir Upeniek (voted Estonia’s best chef 2012) offers food that is imminently suitable to these surroundings, based on traditional recipes, but prepared with the latest possible techniques. During the peak of summer, the restaurant and its generous outdoor terrace are usually overly crowded, resulting in dishes that don’t quite reflect the chef’s full potential, this is why it’s wise to visit off-season, when you can really experience the stillness of Papli Street and Upeniek’s true genius. Situated in the Kurgo Villa Hotel, Piparmünt, or peppermint in English, gets its herbs from the verdant hotel garden. The seasonal menu changes frequently, you might find Atlantic halibut with sunflower seeds and 12 hour-baked wild boar neck, they pair nicely with the house cocktails and mocktails on offer. There are two dining rooms, a formal one and a more casual café serving lighter fare...
