Cafes and restaurants on Saaremaa

Throughout centuries, Saaremaa has been well known for smoked fish, home brewed beer and dark bread. All these delicacies can be enjoyed also todayin the restaurants on Saaremaa. Thousands of them - herring, garfish, flatfish - pass through smoking ovens on the island during summer. On a good day, you can even taste smoked eel. The sweet tasting home brewed beer has made its way from farmsteads to some of the finest restaurants. Also, the home-made bread is a matter of pride for every lady.


The competition “The White Guide Baltic-Estonia” proves that the islanders do not live on traditional boiled potatoes and gravy.  You can read more about the nine White Guide restaurants in Saaremaa and Muhu HERE.

Although the density of restaurants and cafes in the highest in Kuressaare, there are also plenty of places to eat outside the capital of the island. Specially in the summer, when the pop-up cafes open. The interesting small summer cafes can mainly be found outside of Kuressaare.


The people of Saaremaa have preferred local food for a long time. The pure products of Saaremaa are increasingly gathering fame outside the island. Next to vegetables, fish and mutton, more and more Saaremaa made jams and sauces of a vast variety are appearing in many kitchens and shops. If you want to buy products made in Saaremaa, look for a small blue label with the words “Ehtne toode” (Pure Product).
