Where the Local Meets the Foreign

Hafen is a well-lit, colorful harbor restaurant. It is the newest addition to Saaremaa’s eateries and serves flavors from near and far. Spiced sprat –an iconic Estonian food - features here in a salad with roast potatoes and carrots, pickled vegetables and mustard sauce. Old hat for the locals, it is next to compulsory for visitors. The taste of sprat echoes deepin the Estonian soul. Hafen’s soft steamed buns with pulled chicken and kimchi are elsewhere called bao. While they may not quite merit a dedicated visit, they are emblematic of the way the island’s sailors have returned from their trips with new foods through centuries. The curiosity for food is handed down through generations as well. Hafen facilitates new acquaintances with Saaremaa’s local Lahhentagge craft gin. Stunning views to the sea and the ancient castle-fortress entice usto linger longer...
