TALLINN, February 2009 – When Swissôtel Tallinn opened a year ago, the Estonian capital gained not only an international five-star hotel, but also a new top-class restaurant. The Horisont, situated on the top floor of the 30-storey building, very soon established itself as one of Tallinn’s most fashionable restaurants.

The Horisont’s appeal lies not only in its unparalleled view and elegant design, but also in its gastronomic extravagance. Against the backdrop of a 360-degree panoramic view of the medieval city of Tallinn and the Baltic Sea, head chef Volker Marecek offers guests imaginative cuisine at its finest. Loving attention to detail, sophisticated creations and superior quality ingredients provide an experience to savour for gourmets and others alike. Classic dishes are given a modern interpretation – the Horisont menu includes dishes such as goose liver terrine with grilled watermelon, served with honey and grapefruit jam and pickled chickpeas, and caramelised scallops with carrot purée and lemon gnocchi.

“We offer modern avant-garde cuisine”, says head chef Volker Marecek of his food philosophy. “In other words we prepare high-calibre products and classic recipes using new, progressive cooking techniques. As a result our guests are treated to an exciting and unusual meal. We place great emphasis on regional and seasonal products so our menu also changes regularly”.

The German chef has worked at numerous famous hotels in the course of his career, including the Schlosshotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Berlin, the Langham Hilton in London, the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra and the Berkeley Court Hotel in Dublin. The Horisont restaurant also has an elegant Cigar Lounge and bar adjoining it.

The sophisticated ambiance, personal service and stylish design of Swissôtel Tallinn have already made it one of the city’s most prestigious establishments. Its 238 rooms and suites provide every modern luxury. Another attraction of the hotel is the Amrita Spa & Wellness zone featuring a swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room and several treatment rooms.
Swissôtel Tallinn is situated in Tallinn’s financial district, known as the “Wall Street of Tallinn”. The Old Town with its typical cobbled streets is a ten-minute walk away.
