Restaurant Von Taube is located in historic Purtse fortress residence. Outside the fortress a large pile of firewood and a smoking barbecue oven give clues about the menu. Inside the massive dining hall is decorated with equally massive wooden tables and leather-covered chairs. Purtse brewery beer from next door is on tap and loud hard rock music puts a finishing touch to the ambiance.
Rustic surroundings call for rustic food. The creamy potato-pear pureed soup might have a delicate texture and flavour, but the sizeable chunk of smoked salmon in the middle gives the dish a more brutalist spin. The homemade lamb sausage gives a similar effect, twisted around a mountain of potato and groat mash. As the portion could easily feed four people, those eating for one should expect to leave with a doggy bag in hand.
