Ruunipizza: Pancakes: Ruunipizza
It's called Ruunipizza Pannkoogikohvik, which means it's a pizza/pancake cafe (literally Runestone Pizza Pancake Cafe). The pancakes are good, but the service indifferent the day I went. The location is great though, with a view over the main square. It's shame then that I got a sweet pizza with a savoury filling...
The pancakes are good, and freshly cooked, so it's unfortunate the attention to detail let them down.
Restoran Veski(Rahvuslik restoran): Traditional Estonian fare
This restaurant is built in and around a very large, old windmill and the tables are marble recreations of the original grinding stones which give it a great atmosphere.
The food is VERY traditional Estonian(so my Estonian friends tell me) and very good( if you like traditional Estonian). Actually I think it is better than most of the "traditional" restaurants in Tallinn.
This restaurant is owned by the same company as the hotel Arensburg and if you read my caption about the hotel, this is where I think the food for the hotel comes from.
Favorite Dish: Anytime I am in Estonia I always drink "hoog vein"!!!(sound the "oo" like good, not hog) It is a warm spiced wine(gloog or gloogi in Swedish and Finnish) like mulled wine, but better because it is not diluted with juice. During the winter you can get it almost anywhere including shopping stores.
"Millstones", it is a pork steak that has a coating of ground up nuts that is fried in butter.Very good !!!
Trahter Veski: Estonian: Veski
I didn't eat here, but it's a popular tourist spot and gets good reviews for the local fare. The key selling point, however, is that the restaurant is built into an original old island windmill. It's worth a trip just to see that.
Expect lots of meat on the menu, and your waiters and waitresses to be dressed in embarrassing local period costumes.
Chameleon Kohvik Lounge: Cafe/Bar: Chameleon Kohvik Lounge
This place is so new it wasn't mentioned in any guide book, but it was so popular we decided it was worth checking out. We weren't disappointed. Tasty food, relaxing decor and music, and good service.
It's a strange mix of a cocktail/coffee bar and a cafe/restaurant. It's like the owners can't make up their mind what they want. Or they think that catering to everything will bring in more punters. Don't let that put you off.
I'm not sure what the cocktails are like, but as they were as popular as the food they're probably pretty good.
Ristorante la Perla: Italian: Ristorante la Perla
I wouldn't have expected quality Italian food in a small town miles from civilization, but that's exactly what I got at la Perla. The pizza is ok, with a great sauce but iffy base. The pasta is the thing to order. It was so good I went back for seconds.
The price is also very reasonable for the quality.
Cafe Wildenbegi: Great for coffee
the village of Kurressaare is only tiny so you can just stroll up the main street and see many cafes and restaurants to dine at. Most of the restaurants are placed around the main square of the town and can easily be reached by foot.

George Ots Hotel: George Ots Spa Hotel
The hotel has two restaurants one indoor and also the terrace restaurant. The weather was perfect for us so we opted to dine outside on the terrace overlooking the swimming pool.
The indoor restaurant is very comfortable with table/ chairs and also small booths if you want to have an intimate dinner. The restaurant also has lovely sea views which overlooks the small Kuressaare yacht club and sea.
There is also a fab bar area if you which to have pre dinner drinks.
Favorite Dish: Any of the fish seafood is excellent.

La perla: Italian food
Friendly innkeeper. Good choice of pasta and pizza's. Make a reservation or queue up if you are with more than 4 persons.
We had two pastas
a beer and a soft drink
two desserts and two cappuccinos
price 370 lets (7-2005)
Favorite Dish: Good tasty food.
Tiramisu is not worth the try, not enough mascarpone, it was more like a cake.
When it is busy it can take some time to get you bill.
La Perla: Italian dining in Kuressaare
Estonians tend to eat food that is not very spicy and unfortunatly many times that I have eaten ethnic food there it tends to be a little bland and "Estonianized": so I was pleasantly surprised when I ate at La Perla because it was exactly what I think of as "Italian(american Italian anyways :):) )" food . It was very good and reasonably priced. (More like $5-$15 than $11-$20)
The staff was very friendly. We ate there late one evening when it was empty, with a small child, and the waitress actually cleared off a table by ours and brought out toys for the child to play with after he was done eating. We ate there for lunch and dinner and both were very good.
Tareke: Estonian food
This Restaurant on the recommendation of Kuressaare information center. Tareke Restaurant inside the quiet and comfortable. I had a good Estonian food there.
