I bet you can not find this tip from any of brochure. If you are interested of having a cup of bluberry tea, Martini or salad and at the same time take a look at the city view then I would definitely recommend Lounge 24. Enter to the hotel's lobby, take an elevator and go up on the 24th floor. Place is modern-looking and customer service is pretty good.
Prices of alcohol beverages vary from 4 euros up to 8 euros, depending are you having just a regular beer or fancy cocktail. Pot of tea or cup of cappuccino cost usually around 3 euros.
Salads and other snacks are from 8 euros up to 15 euros.
"A stunning roof top bar with its open-air terrace and marvellous view to the city and the sea, Lounge 24 offers excellent selection of light snacks, desserts and exceptional beverage menu including exciting cocktails. Lounge 24 is on the 24th floor of the hotel, 90 metres from street level; the terrace is 140 sq metres and the bar has a capacity of 60."

The hotel is a glassy monolith on Liivalaia, but it does have a rather pleasant cafe on the ground floor (accessible from the frontage as well as via the main reception area).
I ate there several times, and noticed it was well-patronised by locals rather than by hotel guests which says something. It has a good range of cakes, and this is clearly a selling-point: many people popped in for (pre-ordered?) large cakes which were boxed up and tied with ribbons. They came in for take-away salads and small cakes too, and it's obviously a favourite meeting spot for friends after work.
So: they serve the cakes as mentioned, and a good range of salads sold by the 'basic green salad then add your own toppings/dressings' method. So your salad can be as big or small as you want. I usually had one topping (the chunk of hot smoked salmon was very good) and one dressing: with a cup of coffee it came to less than 5GBP (bread is free, but you may have to ask for it).
They also do a range of fruit smoothies/juices.
Worth popping in if you are in the area.
Truly my favourite restaurant in Tallinn, very good food and service. Also very cosy and also romantic place to have dinner, when it is dark and cold outside... They don't have the menus with the pictures on the street... So most of the tourists don't even know about this place.
Favorite Dish: Baked Boletuses in Onion Sauce is one of my favourites, it very russian.. it is good withe the vodka ;) Must say everything is good there
This is a small coffee shop is in the hotel Olumpia, its very nice and peaceful place to have your breakfast or just coffee at any time. They have nice natural orange juice, good cakes as well as sandwiches.
I am pleasantly surprised to discover that, in general, hotel food and hotel restaurants are much improved these days.
Sometimes, as with the Seasons restaurant in Tallin's Radisson, you will come across a restaurant with food to equal any first rate eatery.
The tables are well seperated and many of them adjoin the large windows looking out onto the streets of Tallinn. The feeling is not immediately redolent of a hotel room.
Service is swift and pleasant.
I was seated beside a wall mounted gas fire which was encased in glass, and as it was so cold outside this lent a very warm and welcoming feeling to the room.
Favorite Dish: I simply adored my starter of a fish carpaccio which consisted of slices of white fish carpaccio topped with a rosette of smoked salmon. There was a garnish of a sauce made from pureed mushrooms, a sauce of chopped foie gras, some asparagus tempura, and mixed leaves. The combination of flavours was amazing and rather than compete with each other, they complemented each other.
I followed this with rack of lamb like none that I have ever tasted. There were four melt in the mouth tender lamb chops which had clearly been marinated as the flavour was incredible. These were served with a little mound of perfectly white jasmine rice, some salad and vegetables. I savoured every mouthful of the lamb.
For dessert I opten for the cheese plate - a very generous one altogether with 7 different cheeses, biscuits, and grapes.
Even if I were not staying in the Radisson again I would be inclined to return here to eat.
My two colleagues and I had just arrived from a long trip from the US and checked into the hotel. Being quite tired, we decided to utilize the hotel restaurant. To my surprise, they had a professional chef who constructed beautiful and tasty dishes. I felt there was a small but good selection of choices on the menu - pasta, meat and seafood. See the web link below for a full menu. The ambiance was ok, actually quite similar to the hotel rooms. Unfortunately, they were short on desserts! One was completely unavailable - Amaretto-ginger chocolate cake. Then we ordered the Tiramisu, but only one was left. So two of us chose the Creme brule, soaked in brandy and set aflame! If you are short on time or don't feel like venturing out, this is a good choice for dinner. I understand they have an outdoor patio in the back, but it was late November when we stayed there, so we didn't see it.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the "Grilled gorgonzola beef with rosemary-madeira sauce ". The meat was essentially well-done, but the flavor combination with the sause and rosemary made up for this. Came with a side of baked potato wedges
