Paldiski is a town and Baltic Sea port situated on the Pakri peninsula of north-western Estonia. Since 2017, it's the administrative centre of Lääne-Harju Parish of Harju County. Originally a Swedish settlement known as Rågervik, it became a Russian naval base in the 18th century. The Russians renamed it Балтийский Порт ("Baltiyskiy Port", i.e. Baltic Port, German: Baltisch-Port) in 1762. In Estonian the name was spelled Baltiski until 1933 when the Estonian pronunciation Paldiski became the official name.

Tavern Peetri Toll is the oldest bar in Paldiski. It is located just a short walk from Paldiski railway station, next to two ancient churches.The charm of the medieval building with its limestone walls and wooden arches brings you back to the age of Peter the Great, when Baltiyskiy Port was founded.There are three rooms on the first floor, which can seat up to 50 people, a summer Terrace with additional 20 seats, and a large banquet room for up to 70 people on the second floor with a private open-air Terrace.Traditional Russian and Estonian cuisine is served.We take bookings for wedding, birthday parties and other corporate or private events. We are always delighted to serve tourist groups.There is also an exhibition of the old Paldiski photographs presented on the second floor and a collection of historical materials and books about Paldiski and Pakri peninsula are available.
We stopped here on our Coastal Cliffs and Paldiski tour for lunch. The service was friendly, helping us out describing some of the dishes and the food was tasty and came quickly, they have a book of old photos of Paldiski that you can look at while you wait. Dessert Napoleon cake was great. Wi-fi was good too. The lemonade type drink was too sweet for me.Good pitstop on our tour.

We are committed to using home grown produce and always use the herbs from our garden. Our menu is known for its Nordic freshness, pure taste and crisp intense flavours. All of this has elevated Wicca among the 50 best restaurants of Estonia for five years!
Apparently sharing the kitchen with Verde, an adjacent restaurant has an impact to service speed. But still, they served very good dishes made of local ingredients.

We have visited this place several times. Today we went there to have breakfast. There was only one free table. I ordered a meal with salmon and potatoes . Unfortunately my food was not delicious. When the meal was brought to table potatoes were cold to this time. And it was a big mess in the plate. I was hungry and eated it. Good t wasn’t what I was expected but eatable. Sadly this time this experience was a disappointment.

We went to Laulasmaa spa and there was an issue with the restaurant (renovations), and we also didn't want to eat the fancy food. Ended up in this place and although we were a bit hesitant to go in, we were pleasantly surprised.
The soups and pork steaks were excellent (and very well spiced). The dessert cake was not so great though.

Very small restaurant on high cliff in Pakri peninsula. Some kilometers from Paldiski. There is fantastic view to sea and Pakri Islands from Terrace. Pure nature. One of the best views in Estonia. Food is also very tasty and service friendly. Near is highest lighthouse in Estonia.
