Description: Everyone is welcome in Von Krahli Aed: vegans and omnivores, paleo enthusiasts and wine lovers, monks and sybarites. We prefer local. We prefer organic. We prefer well-balanced food. We prefer the Nordic crispness and the taste of the food’s ingredient itself. We prefer organic wines. We don’t have any others. All of our dishes can be ordered with or without meat. Our belief is that the pleasure from fresh and pure food is one of the greatest that nature can offer us. We strive to mediate this joy to you with our best skills (according to our best skills?). Welcome to the Embassy of Pure Food!
Reviewed January 1, 2009

This review is based on three visits to Restaurant Aed in the Old town of Reval (Tallinn) – once in June and twice in December 2008. The first time we happened to walk in there for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. During our next trip to Reval we consciously headed there for two of our four meals. And believe me, there are several good restaurants in Reval so our choice was not the result of a shortage.

I would describe the kitchen as “French style preparation of Nordic ingredients with an Italian respect and love”. The place itself positions it as “Estonian contemporary kitchen” and “organic”. I must admit that neither of their marketing messages would tempt me to go there. So I am extremely happy that I tasted their food before reading about the place.

Their servings are extremely elegant, beautiful and tasty. There are always several details, like edible flowers, and pea shaped and sized pear pieces. These allow you to try different combination of tastes. The chef is an expert in preparing the meat to its perfect degree – juicy, warm and tender.

The place itself is cosy and warm despite the rough walls. The house is very old and you can spot old wall paintings. The light, many plants and antique furniture give an Italian style, simple – yet welcoming character. The girls serving you are friendly and have a pleasant manner.

In the summer the menu was very short but now in December there were many tempting alternatives, also for vegetarians. The wine list consists of organic wines, which probably is the reason why it is a bit limited.

The prices are very competitive considering the quality:
Starters: wild pigeon 7€, mushroom soup 5€, gratinated goat cheese 6€
Main: duck 14€, lamb filet 15€, rabbit 14€
Desserts: chocolate brandy cake w ice cream 6€, crème brulee 4€
Wine, Shiraz: Albet I Noya 46€, Mas Igneus FA-206 46€
