IF Pass, the partners card for the students of the French Institute

September 4, 2017


Since September 2017, the students of the French Institute receive an IF Pass card!

The French Institute’s partners card offers discounts in several restaurants, cafés and shops in Tallinn. Taking lessons at the French Institute, also means being part of a francophile network, bringing together all friends of French culture and gastronomy!

Our partners are:


The restaurant “Lusikas” (The Spoon)
Aia 7, Tallinn

The spoon is a simple but great tool, which couldn’t be replaced by a fork nor a knife. It is essential on the table and this is why this restaurant of Aia street chose this name. There, you will find simple but delicious dishes inspired by the nordic climate and its freshness through a selection of the best products of the world.

The restaurant Lusikas shows importance to well-being and makes efforts in order to associate good food to a warm atmosphere.
