Umami Resto


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2016 - 2019 Winner

Location and contact

Umami can be translated as "rich savory taste" and "richness of flavors" describes us the best! Umami is a second restaurant by Sommelier Kristjan Peäske and Chef Janno Lepik alongside very popular Leib at the old town. We continuously cooperate with local farmers, but at Umami we are having fun with some great “imported” flavours. Our choice of beverages is rather original and various than enormous. From freshly squeezed juices and craft beers to carefully selected wines and home made spirits we find something suitable to every taste. For craft beer lovers we even brew our own beer!

We were hungry and passed this restaurant on our way, back, to the hotel. Good services and the dishes were great. I recommend the Umami boef a la tartare, with toast. Or my daughter the Burger, this day with chicken.

Really delicious tasty food. We ended up eating here twice. Great choice of drinks, both soft and alcoholic. Perfect way to wind down with the evening sun, near a small harbour, good music, good vibe.

Sunny day, we hoped for a table outside, a girl serving us said she'd tell us if anything going to be available. She didn't. Twice. Available table for new clients. Fine, busy times, this wasn't what ruined our mood. She took our order, but half...More

Even on workday evenings - book a table ahead. Worth a short walk from the center, the food is absolutely delicious and service friendly and immediate.
