Sitting right in the middle of the action on Town Hall Square, Revalia grill comes from the same stable as neighbouring restaurants Old Estonia and Fellini – all of them capitalizing on their great location to catch the busy tourist trade that centres on the square throughout the year.
You may get the impression that Revalia is not completely sure of its identity, with its inconsistent mixture of kitsch and elegant styling – but that does not stop the restaurant being a decent place for a bite, given its convenient location and great view of the square.
There are some genuinely tasteful touches: pleasant lighting, diaphanous partitions and well-placed pot plants help to give the restaurant a relaxed atmosphere. Go for the grill items rather than crêpes or vegetables, which can be on the tired side. The restaurant’s name comes from the old Germanic tag for Tallinn that dates from the city’s heyday as a Teutonic merchant colony.
