Located in the luxe yet family-friendly Estonia Resort Hotel and Spa, Noot restaurant features Nordic-inspired design. Chef Rudolf Visnapuu boasts the Cordon Bleu culinary award and his offerings include fried catfish and beef tournedos. The chocolate fondant cake accompanied with rich coffee ice cream is a definite highlight.

Hea Maa

This super cool restaurant is located in Parnu’s old City Hall. Hea Maa uses locally sourced ingredients to create traditional Estonian dishes with a twist. Try the pike perch or beef cheek with sweet potato. If there’s any room for dessert, opt for blueberry soup or a chocolate fondant with caramel balsamic ice cream.

Parnu Kuursaal

Parnu Kuursaal is a popular restaurant and music hall that was built in the 1880s. Considered the largest pub in Estonia, this is the place to go for raging, all-night parties. If you visit in the day or early evening, there’s a small menu of bar snacks, mains and salads to line your stomach with for the night ahead.

Villa Wesset

Fried chicken fillet with parsley and ketchup

Part of a hotel, this restaurant has a large indoor and seasonal outdoor area in addition to a really lovely covered terrace, great for Estonia’s chillier weather. Villa Wesset offers Estonian specialities like eel and herring as well as a plethora of other dishes. The pasta and chicken fillet is highly recommended, especially when followed by either (or both!) the cream cheese and juniper cake or chocolate and sea buckthorn cake.
