The Paat restaurant (the name means boat) is built like an up side down boat. The food is exellent as the building and the surroundings. The restaurant is on the shores of the Finnish Gulf and near by is a museum with buildings from the time when Swedish speaking people vied here. It will take about 25 minutes by car... More

We called into this restaurant twice on our visit to Estonia as it's within easy driving distance from Tallinn and next to the outdoor fisherman's village museum (great for an hour). The restaurant sits on the beach with great views, great food and lovely engaging helpful staff.

despite ita location,a bit far from the centre of Tallinn,if you get your time it is a really good idea go there. The place is really cosy,also they have a terrace just close to the beach and the view of Tallinn gives the right atmosphere to your dinner there.....

Very nice location, outside the city on the seaside. But the menu is too average. Everything we ordered was ok, but nothing special.

Visited Paat few weeks ago and it was OK, but nothing special. It has beautiful view and good location. I ordered a Caesar salad, which I didn't like - chicken was very dry and they used dark bread pieces instead of white bread. And it didn't taste good. My companion told that in spring the food was better than now.... More

We have heard about this unique restaurant from our friends and decided to visit there as soon as possible and now we had a good opportunity to do that. It was sunny, but windy day, anyway no problems... More

Located just outside of Tallinn, Paat is one of those few restaurants that can brag about their view. By the sea, it has a gorgeous view to Tallinn panorama. Sunsets in the summer will take your breath away. And it's only a 10-15 minute drive from the city center. But the service can let you down. Sometimes they are really... More

The restaurant is in an upturned boat (Paat) just outside of Tallinn. We sat outside and had a great view of the city across the bay. The service was efficient and friendly. I had a smoked salmon salad and a piece of salmon in a wasabi and aioli sauce for a main. It was absolutely delicious. I can recommend this... More
