About
Joyce is one of the most creative restaurants in Estonia. There is no doubt about it. It combines the two essential components in the world of enjoyment. First of these is choice. Choice between good and better. Choice between exquisite and exceptional. Choice between two unforgettable things. Due to namely the choices that Joyce offers in their menu, the word ‘choice’ forms part of the restaurant’s name. But choices alone will not do. We also need the skill to feel joy about the choices we have made. To experience and enjoy. To try and discover. Joy from masterful taste sensations is the second definite value of restaurant Joyce. Therefore, ‘joy’ is another part of the restaurant’s name. These

The food was good with very interesting ingredients. The drinks were excellent. The best part of the experience was our waiter, who was extremely caring and attentionate. We rank it 4/5 because the portions were a bit small and a tad pricey.More

Had an amazing meal. Fresh ingredients, interesting flavours, beautifully presented, everything cooked to perfection. The duck breast I had was particularly good: tender, juicy, crispy skin and there was a delicious sweet glaze over it. Complimentary home made bread and butter was a nice touch....Also ordered a mojito, which didn't disappoint. Service was also excellent. Never too long waiting between courses and friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff. The restaurant itself has a nice decor too. I highly recommend coming here if you're in search of local gastronomy.More
