After a few disappointments with Italian restaurants, this French retreat proved to be a very nice change. It is cozy, atmospheric and nice all around – located in medieval building, with candle lit halls and vaulted ceilings, leather bound menus, appropriate music of just a right volume, tasty food and generous portions. Waiters are nicely dressed and very attentive, polite and friendly. The menu and the food arrived in the blink of an eye. When we visited Le Chateau Friday evening, it was pleasantly full and buzzing with different languages (Swedish, German, Estonian, English).
There is one of the rare occasions when you can find a lot of seductive and interesting things to choose from in the menu. It is not haute cuisine where they draw with the food; here you eat, enjoy and feel like a nobleman of medieval times in a hunting season.
We had onion soup which came in a tureen with a plate of excellent home-baked bread, and one portion was more than enough for two. This is the only place in Tallinn we managed to find which was serving duck thigh instead of usual boring dry breast. We found duck too salty, however ratatouille was excellent – way better than the one we had in Nice.
For one soup, two mains, a cake and a bottle of wine we paid 55 eur.
It is a real danger that you get a medieval belly if you visit this place regularly. It feels that we are already in the process.
