Leib (Estonian black bread) is a thing of great beauty and quiet national pride, and you'll find a peerless rendition here: dense, moist, almost fruity in its Christmas-cake complexity. Thick-sliced and served with salt-flaked butter, it's the ideal accompaniment to the delightful new-Nordic ('new Estonian'?) food at this garden restaurant in the Old Town headquarters of Tallinn’s Scottish club (really!).
Pitch-perfect service and unimprovably simple dishes such as house-smoked trout with herby cucumber salad showcase the very best of Tallinn dining.
