Restaurant in Tallinn?[edit]

Right next Saturday, I'm going on a day cruise to Tallinn, Estonia. I will be spending about 6 hours in Tallinn. I will probably stay the entire time in the centre and in the Old Town. What I'm most looking for is to eat at a restaurant. Can someone recommend a good restaurant in the centre or Old Town in Tallinn? I have been to Kohvik Moon twice, and found the food very good, but I understand it's so popular and small that I fear I won't get a table if I just walk in without a reservation. I have also been to Olde Hansa in the Old Town, and found both the atmosphere and food very good, but I fear getting the whole experience there will take up most, if not all, of my time in Tallinn. As for my food tastes, I like just about everything, although I don't like vegetarian food. I want my every meal to consist of some kind of meat or fish. I'd prefer traditional Estonian food, but if that's not available, then steaks, pizza, Asian food or hamburgers. Please don't advise me to go to the McDonald's right at the entrance to the Old Town. There's plenty of McDonald's restaurants in Finland already. Asked by: JIP (talk) 19:49, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

You can go to pretty much any restaurant, I think. I am not aware of any places which would be a bigger tourist trap than Olde Hansa. You can get decent food for reasonable price in places like Mauruse Pubi on the border of the Old Town and Pizza Grande nearby. Kompressor is a very basic but good cafe serving enormously large pancakes (should they be considered Estonian fare?). Boheem Kohvik is known for modern recipes based on traditional Estonian ingredients. It is 10 min walk from the Old Town in the Kalamaja district, which I recommend you to visit anyway. --Alexander (talk) 05:00, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
I ended up going to restaurant Sfäär in the centre near the harbour. It is a small, very nicely decorated place, with a surprisingly simple menu. Only five main courses, plus some starters, pasta and dessert. I had the veal. The meat was excellent, but it didn't quite satisfy my hunger. It only cost 14.50 €.

JIP: if you like, it would be great if you added a listing for Sfäär in Tallinn#Eat. :) -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:52, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Further Munich question: How to get to Unterföhring?[edit]

I have a further question about my upcoming trip to Munich in May next year. If I decide to go, there's an event I'd like to visit, in Unterföhring near Munich, on Feringastraße 2. How do I get there from Munich centre and back? There doesn't seem to be any U-Bahn or S-Bahn stations nearby, and I don't know how the bus lines connect to Munich centre. I'll probably be arriving at the event about 8 PM and leaving around midnight. Asked by: JIP (talk) 18:34, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

The S8 stops at Unterföhring, short taxi ride from there will get you to Feringastraße. --Traveler100 (talk) 18:24, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

What to do in Stockholm on Christmas Day?[edit]

This year, I will probably be spending Christmas on a cruise to Stockholm. The ship arrives in Stockholm on Christmas Day at about 10:00 in the morning and leaves at about 15:00 in the afternoon. I will probably not go outside the city centre during the entire time. What is there to do in Stockholm on Christmas Day in that time? Asked by: JIP (talk) 17:35, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Scratch that, I'm not going to Stockholm after all. JIP (talk) 19:51, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
