Polpo – a restaurant with the spirit of Tartu
Tartu is a special Estonian city. It does not immediately open up to strangers and first-time visitors have a hard time understanding its essence. What makes Tartu special is called the spirit of Tartu by locals.
Years ago, the Tartu spirit lived in the beer restaurant that used to reside in the rooms of the current restaurant Polpo. This was a place for people to come together, drink some beer, and discuss the town affairs.
Restaurant Polpo is far more respectable than its predecessor, as well as entirely different for its interior. Nevertheless, the spirit of Tartu reveals itself on the premises from time to time. Especially when there are a lot of Tartu residents gathered here at the same time. However, town affairs are now discussed over oysters and champagne.
The pace of life in the centre of Tartu is sometimes faster, sometimes slower. Restaurant Polpo is like a reflection of the Tartu spirit. The mood here is exactly like the one present in the whole city.
