!/~tuupola/oldimages/12.gif (Stefanie’s)! Restaurant Stefanie’s in central Tallinn (Maakri 19/21) serves excellent mediterranean food. If you have trouble choosing the main course, try the duck breast filled with orange teriyaki which has been a bestseller for awhile. They also serve fresh tuna which is not usually easy to get.
Interior itself is simple and elegant. There are both smoking and non-smoking areas. It is probably a good idea to reserve a table in advance. When we first reserved a table there was no room in non-smoking area. However upon arriving to the restaurant we were pleased to notice that a non-smokin table had become available and our reservation was transfered there. Atmosphere was nice and quiet. It was not plaqued with noisy tourists. Although one could argue whether the BeeGees are good background music or not ;)
What especially got my attention was courteous and fast service which did not try to be superficially friendly. If you are like me and don’t talk any good estonian yet, the waitresses speak perfect english. You can get served in finnish too but english is better choice of language.
Update 2005-12-05: While other food is good do not try the pasta. Atleast for me it was overboiled and was soaking with sauce.
