Ranked #2 of 159 Restaurants in Tartu
Price range: US$5 - US$29
Description: 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 are the two components that inspired the top restaurant in Tartu called Joyce. Head Chef Mihkel Manglus is a young talent of the world of flavours, who has gained experience at different Michelin star restaurants in Europe. Mihkel's brand is to create intense and pure flavours. The secret of his quality is in simple and traditional produce that may surprise even the most demanding restaurant enthusiast with their originality under the hand of a master. Joyce is the very place, where you can spend whole evenings in good company, but also simply step in for a quick drink on a date. Quality time spent in good company and impressive selection of flavours in an exciting interior is the source of pure joy.

I had the best evening on the terrace of Joyce restaurant. Had octopus for main course and panna cotta for dessert, perfect for the warm summer evening with cold bottle of pino grigio. Very very friendly service! Highly recommended.

All food that I have tried, has been super delicious. The service is also very high class and friendly always. I celebrated my graduation at this restaurant and was very pleased with service and food. Atmosphere is also great and this is one restaurant that I have never had to be disappointed.
