III Draakon is a little “buffet” that has managed to keep its raw medieval interior for hundreds of years in Tallinn Town Hall. The “dragon” is basically a part of Olde Hansa restaurant that is filled with tourists just beyond the street, but they are so very different. All the food in here costs only € 1 (elksoup, blood sausages, different pies filled with elk, boar, apple, carrot or cabbage) and all the drinks cost € 2.50 (homemade light and dark beer, glög and schnapps). This tavern is a typical “it’s on me” place as it simply cannot hurt anyone’s wallet.
Note that with the drink you are allowed to catch a cucumber from a barrel. It’s not really a pickle, but rather a very salty cucumber. Can be extreme to taste this one!
For me “Draakon” is as medieval as it can get nowadays and in the interior only a ghost is missing. Raw limestone walls, no electricity allowed (everything is lit with candles), food is cheap and simple and waiters (who by the way have to pass a special test in a knight school!) look like they’re from a fresh Bosch painting.
Tip: Elk soup and clay beer is a must!
