The Telegraaf, April-May 2008

Telegraaf's Virtual Facelift
Our virtual address remains the same, but our website has undergone reconstructive surgery to give visitors a taste of the five-star luxury which awaits them. In addition, at you’ll always find Restaurant Tchaikovsky’s latest menu and the hotel’s special offers.

However, just because we’ve opened the new site to the world, doesn’t mean it’s perfect. We invite you to visit our website and offer comment on how we can improve it. We’re so serious about your feedback that we’re offering one night in a double room plus dinner for two in Tchaikovsky to the person who sends us the most constructive comment (one we can act upon!).

Russian Easter With Tchaikovsky
An Easter feast is tradition for many, and we invite you to share the season with us at Restaurant Tchaikovsky from April 24th through the 27th.
Begin with an amuse-bouche of colored quail eggs combined with smoked duck meat and brioche, move on to liver pâté with cognac soaked plums, Easter borsch, and crown it all with the main course of red wine poached sturgeon with Savoy cabbage. And for those still able, dessert is also included! For reservations call +372 6 000 610.

Guest Of Note
Recently, a good number of political leaders have graced us with their presence. These include the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Zambia, HE Mr. Kabinga J. Pande, HE Mr. Jorge Sampaio, former President of Portugal, and HE Mr. H. Babayev, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan.

The composer Michael Nyman also spent a night with us, as well, taking time to hold a small press conference at the hotel during Tallinn’s Black Nights Film Festival.

Terrace Dining is Coming Back!
Beginning May 1, our courtyard café, Telegraaf Terrace, is pleased to offer you the same fine service you’ll find inside with a wonderful light summer menu. Just a few steps away from Town Hall Square, enjoy salads, soups, and fish (not to mention cocktails) in a quiet medieval environment. Hopefully, you’ll also enjoy a bit of Baltic sunshine.
We can guarantee the service and food, but unfortunately, the weather is beyond our control.
