Whisked Straight to The Table From a Fisherman’s Boat

That simple sentence reveals the secret of the Kuressaare Kuursaal (also called KuKuu) restaurant. In recent years, the Baltic Sea has been shifty and it’s hard to be sure of a good catch, but we always get at least something. From that ‘something’, Toomas Leedu, the Chef of the Kuursaal restaurant, gets to take the first pick. Therefore the restaurant’s main menu is always complemented by a separate daily fresh fish menu. On the worst days, the menu consists of two lines, but it’s always there. The fish is simply baked in the oven or fried in a pan and served with seasonal garden produce. You can’t get much simpler than that, but not much tastier either. Making simple dishes delicious is an art in itself, and the Kuursaal restaurant has mastered that art. This year a small but sensible selection of South African wines has been added to the drinks menu.

There is a cocktail bar – LAB Lounge – right next to the restaurant. The signature cocktails are definitely worth trying, as these also contain ingredients grown on the island and prepared on the spot.
