Opened in 2014, Noa is the hot newcomer on Tallinn's restaurant scene, a stunning seafront property, that’s become the city’s top “see and be seen” scene. Every detail of its interior is designed for maximum hipness, with driftwood furniture and fur throws arranged around the inside of a modern, minimalist building.
The restaurant is divided into two sides: a bustling main seating area and a quieter chef's side, where adventurous eaters can sample a tasting menu of curious creations (think: molecular gastronomy) like salty lemonade and oysters with "wheat pearls" and "fake oystermilk". Creative meals come in small portions but are perfectly prepared and artfully presented.
The main side is more laid back in every respect, with a lively atmosphere and cheaper food, divided into price categories of €6, €12, and €18. Noa is located in Tallinn's Rocca al Mare neighborhood and requires a cab ride 10 or 15 minutes outside the city, but sweeping views of the Bay of Tallinn are worth the trip. Reserve in advance, and try to snag a table outside during summer.
