To celebrate the birth of our daughter we have decided to enjoy the quality and atmosphere of the Horisont restaurant. Besides the excellent food and the pleasant service of the staff this restaurant has a magnificant view over Tallinn. I can really recommend this place for an excellent evening out.

During my Stay in Tallinn i had the chance to visit the Restaurant Horisont which is located on the 30th Floor of the Swissotel.

The Restaurant and Bar has a modern Design and with its large Glass Windows and the impressive View over Harbour and Old Town it is definitly a must go Place in Tallinn.

Getting the chance to dine in the Restuarant i found even more reasons to recommend it to others.

The very attentive and friendly Service guided me in a warm manner trough a nice culinary Journey accompanied by well choosen Wine suggestions for very reasonable and fair Prices.
There is no Special Dish i can recommend as i believe that every Item on the Menu is worth a try and animates to come back to this great Place.

I will definitly return to Horisont whenever i have the chance to be in Tallinn.

This is a beautiful place, located on the 20-something floor off a hotel, with a great view of all of Tallinn. Everything as expected - designer decor, great food, good wine selection and service, exorbitant prices. This is a very nice special occasion restaurant. Dress is definitely cocktail, and men should wear a jacket.

... such as the chef talking repeatedly during the course of the evening to a loud, tipsy local party of four at a neighboring table which entertained the rest of the restaurant division whether they wanted it or not. It may be that the chef did not really appreciate the other customers (especially hotel guests, which our party was not), who did not even get as much as a nod, but one might not want to display this disdain so openly.

The place is very much pre.-crash, with one of the best views of Tallinn, on top of a hotel that just has to be a business failure under the circumstances. Views are spectacular, especially during sunset, and would be worth cafeteria food. Unfortunately, tables for two are so arranged that one seat has no view at all.

Design is, well, 2000s international trendy; the atmosphere is strange because of the typical Scandinavian businessmen and Asian tourists that have their hotel dinners there in sneakers and sweatshirts. The service is always a bit late, even when the restaurant is not full; there is just a lack of attention.

The food is very good and quite interesting in its bold combinations; most dishes fly, but there was always something slightly off - a monkfish with blood sausage was great but the fish very dry; a pork belly great and tender but the top crust not crunchy but rubbery and not cuttable with the designer knives supplied. But it's an interesting, international cuisine and one can spend a really nice evening there, especially if one has a well-placed table and overlooks the glitches. This is especially easy, in the end, because prices are certainly very competitive, and dining here is a bargain.

I recently visited the Horisont restaurant on Tallinn's Swissotel's top floor with a group of
German journalists and business people.

I would like to share with the readership here the very pleasant experience we had! Not only that the restaurant and its adjacent Hotel Bar are set up in a modern and sophisticated way, the breathtaking view towards the Old Town and the passenger harbour impressed me and my guests and gave lots of interesting topics to talk about for the full evening!

Fine dining at its best! Kitchen and service were excellent and without any faults. You can
feel that experts are working here and I was positively surprised, how well the hotel crew
trained its local staff! Well done!
