THE STORY OF A SEASIDE VILLAGE

The village of Liimala is a quiet, pleasant place, and unremarkable except for its recently finished small boat harbour and the brand-new beach restaurant right next to it. But back in the days of prohibition, life was much more active here, especially under the cover of darkness, with bootleggers hard at work. Inspired by their story, the Tulivee Restaurant recreates the setting in a modern key. The restaurant has its very own Jamaican-mixed rum and craft beer, which are served with simple everyday seaside village food. Baltic herring, fried with egg, doused in a vinegar marinade, a familiar dish in every Estonian home and borscht, a Slavic classic. The Russian language and customs that dominate most of the Ida-Virumaa region go comfortably hand in hand with Estonian tastes and habits at Tulivee. The eye-catching modern wooden building at the picturesque beach brings the two cultures together in a still-unfolding tale of a seaside village. Right next to the restaurant is Tulivee Villa with nine sea-view rooms and a small museum presenting the history of Liimala and its firewater. A night in the villa after dinner gives you an opportunity to be part of the tale of this village.
