WHEELCHAIR ACCESS - POSSIBLE (only at end entrances) Side accesses are stepped.

Finally, after 14 years of driving through Viitna, we decided to have lunch here.

During summer 2017 on our numerous drives through Viitna we watched a new rush roof being laid to replace the distinctly dirty old one. Combined with the white-washed walls the building is now dramatically bright.

Measuring approximately 25m x 75 metres, this one the biggest kõrts. The barn style doors at the eastern end suggest this end was stabling for carriage horses as Viitna is on the all important Tallinn-St. Petersburg road. Viitna kõrts was the C18th and C19th equivalent to a motorway rest area and eatery. The local population could never have supported this size of operation.

The trestle tables and benches, inside only, are traditional features of kõrts. The windowless design without a chimney is also a traditional kõrts feature - though there are now some windows at the rear. In days of yore, smoke from the fires went out through a hole in the roof.

There are now two dining areas each between 25-30m long at either end of the building, and each having its own style and distinct menu. The uncounted metres in the middle are the kitchens.

The western end is the low cost Bistro counter service of wholesome typical Estonian homemade food and salat (pickled cucumbers, salted cabbage, finely diced beetroot) but no alcohol.

The eastern end is a more traditional wait staffed restaurant with a cosmopolitan menu and a bar service.

There are patios at either end for summer style eating at tables under umbrellas. There is also a permanent wooden gazebo at the eastern end.

The grounds provide some activities for children including a large 500kg bearing kiik.

Had the pelmenis and local porridge with Groats. My first groat which is barely mixed with soupy potatoes. It has a creamy sauce of wild mushrooms poured over it along with beets and pickle. Pretty good! We also had the boiled pelmenis boiled with sour cream on the side. Two dishes, two mineral waters, a large salad and a cappuccino for 20 euros. Local dishes under 6 euros and huge portions.
