The wine bar you never want to leave
Restaurant and wine bar Umb Roht was a hit from the moment it opened. The staff’s incredible enthusiasm, coupled with the innovative food and drink contribute to making this quite a scene. The menu (five starters, five mains and five desserts) changes often enough to lure the regulars back again and again; creamy celeriac soup with Roman cauliflower, carrot oil and buckwheat crisp; pork belly with enoki mushrooms, white truffle, white asparagus and rhubarb broth; birch jelly with redcurrant, gooseberry, birch leaves and chickpea meringue. All paired with an excellent wine selection, which is kept semi-secret as it’s never published on Umb Roht’s website, making each visit an exciting blind date with the (Coravin preserved) drink. And if wine isn’t the order of the day, then the cocktail menu is sure to do the trick, co-owner Karl Astok is one of Estonia’s top mixologists. Umb Roht is a thief of time, people often pop in for one glass of wine and end up getting another, and yet another, staying longer than anticipated. Be sure to order your dishes the same way, one by one. Even starters are so generous that you might not want a second course. The unique and cozy courtyard is Tartu’s most popular place for al fresco dining during the summer season...
