Hidden away near the old town, great food, modern scene, well designed interior, extansive selection of wines, relaxed atmosphere - and tasty food.

Great food, great service. Probably the best Mediterranean in northern Europe and one of the top 5 in Tallinn, no doubt. Try the tuna and the pork belly. Perfectly cooked an great value. Staff is knowledgeable about wines and they do seem to walk the talk as we found their wines cheaper than elsewhere we visited in Tallinn. Price was not an issue for us, but we had a beautiful, fully-bodied red, recommended by the waitress, for just 19 EUR. A must if you are in town.

Having just arrived in Tallinn and nursing a bit of a cold, I was looking for a relaxing dinner for one . My criteria are clear and simple: excellent food with good service, atmosphere is a plus.

Alter Ego was a short walk from my hotel, looked great on Trip Advisor, and was. The wine list was notated with various rankings and ratings from different agencies. I liked that. I ordered a value, a 2009 Albae Esencia.

Then I layered in three small plates: fried capers, sautéed calamari, and muscles. All were fabulous. I especially recommend the capers.

Placed just few steps from old town this restaurant is offering very amicable atmosphere and delicious food. Price-wise they are on middle level - but i would say that food is worth money they ask. They are using original Spanish spices and wines, what makes food even better.
Definitely place to visit. Also they are situated just by biggest cinema center - what allows possibility to make nice romantic evening :)
