Concierge.com's insider take:
Vertigo (which the locals pronounce ver-TEE-go) opened in 2006 and took Tallinn dining to new heights, quite literally. It's located at the top of a tower block opposite the Radisson SAS Hotel and the contemporary cuisine of chef-owner and TV personality Imre Kose stands out in a town that often sticks with traditional, local fare. To the delight of Tallinn's hippest patrons and visiting business executives, Kose might pair tuna tartare with a smoked-chile confiture, or enliven lamb ragout with black truffles. In addition to the fine-dining restaurant—which looks like something out of a Fred Astaire movie—Vertigo includes a rooftop terrace (where a DJ is usually spinning), a brasserie, and a lounge. Whether you go for a dinner, cocktails (the house drink is a mojito deluxe, made with a splash of Champagne), or the Sunday brunch, reservations are necessary.
Dining room: Open Mondays through Fridays noon to midnight, Saturdays 6 pm to midnight, and Sundays 4 to 10 pm. Brasserie: Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to midnight, Sundays 11 am to 10 pm.
