Based on the historical milieu in the wonderful Old Town of Tallinn, our goal is to find the border between classic and modern cuisine, which makes the experience in Cru restaurant truly timeless.

The two interior halls have been renovated in keeping with the original design of the building from the 15th century and create an authentic late medieval atmosphere. The courtyard offers the opportunity to spend time in the quiet courtyard of the Old Town. Of course, the restaurant also has an excellent wine cellar where you can find the right wine for you.


Mark is 28 years old, a young and an ambitious chef.

He was born in a small historic town called Rakvere and spent his childhood in Padise village.

During school he was polishing his culinary skills in different cafés and restaurants, for example Sesoon and Leib Restoran.

Mark was only 24 when he became the head chef for the first time at Jahu restaurant. After that was a big challenge for him to leave the capital and to go lead Dirham fish café.

Since Mark has Russian roots, then Russian cuisine’s influnces can be felt in his creations.

Mark ties together Estonian cuisine, his Russian roots, French culinary techniques and European flavours.

Mark describes joining Cru Restaurant’s team like this:

“European flavours meet in Cru Restaurant. It is every chef’s dream to have the opportunity to use such contrasting produce and to match them together.”
