Description: Hand-made bread, coupled with foods made from natural,local ingredients is a gastronomic delight. Add the city’s most stunning terrace and it’s soulful.We love simple, soulful food made from the finest,freshest ingredients. We don’t like pretentious food,stuffy service, or overpriced menus. Sometimes you just want a good meal. That’s why we created Leib: a restaurant where two guys crazy for food would want to eat themselves.We’ve both worked years in the restaurant business, and we felt the time was right to open our own place. (It helped our decision that we were offered the city’s best terrace.) We are true “food guys,” and one of us is always in the restaurant.

We visited Leib Resto ja Aed just before the summer holidays, so that the terrace was not yet open. Nevertheless, we thoroughly enjoyed the dinner during a weekend break from Helsinki. There was a number of children in our party, but the genuinely friendly staff made us feel very welcome nonetheless. I'm happy to say that the kids all behaved... More

The guy at the tourist information recommended the place and we were a bit sceptical but once we walked into the garden we knew we would like it. The setting is really nice and you forget about the hustle and bustle of Tallin. They offer a variety of refreshing spritzer drinks which were very welcome on a hot day. The... More

This was my second view to Leib. I was not disappointed. We had dinner reservations and were able to be seated outside, even though the evening was cool. The blankets helped immensely. The seating overlooks a lovely garden, with the old walls of the city providing the main backdrop. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. The menu was inspiring and the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant in a beautiful garden setting last night and were given a table outside. We were blown away by the quality and freshness of every dish. This restaurant offers the best in Estonian dining by combining traditional and modern cuisines into a sublime experience. It was so good, we went again tonight and tried different dishes--again,...

Turned up a group of 7 with no reservation and they found us a table. We had superb food and the best service. Food was outstanding and the matched wine a bonus. The strawberry and black pepper icecream delicious.

Leib was my favorite restaurant in Tallinn, and I can see why people still enjoy it, especially on their first visit and if they are not from or familiar with Tallinn (and in the summer, it anyway becomes a tourist place and thus weakens in quality). Setting is nice, garden is nice, indoor is nice. The semi-hipster atmosphere, the handmade... More

I went there twice and cannot but agree with the positive elements in the previous reviews. Although the quail would be better served baked instead of grilled and be accompanied by a light sauce (why not, they are excellent with sauces). Setting (I preferred the garden; the balcony was a little cramped), service (the more than lovely waitress), the house... More

We had our first and best meal at Leib. The restaurant was recommended to us by our host, and I am glad she did. It is situated just outside the wall in a delightful setting, however, not that easy to spot whilst passing by. The food is fresh and simple and full of character. Very friendly staff who made us...

The gardens and restaurant are fabulous. Disappointed that there was only one toilet, but this seems to be the norm in Tallin! The food was fabulous. The smoked trout soup was amazing, as was the steak. The service was faultless, although at times I did feel I was being sold to, never the less the waitress was lovely. Just one... More

The moment we walked into the garden we were amazed how beautiful that place looked - green, fresh and lots of character - terrace + small ''balcony'' for the diners and you could over look chefs in the open kitchen which was bonus as well when sitting outside. They seated us upstairs to the ''balcony'' over looking the garden and... More
