Everything you eat is from the surroundings!

It's inside the Pädaste Manor Main House. Alexander serves a 5, 7, or 9-course menu. All ingredients are from the island, very fresh and tasty. It's best to stay in the wonderful hotel and to reserve an evening to enjoy the 9-course menu. It's a trip through the Estonian cuisine in a beautiful... read more

The whole combination of dining, wining, service and the atmosphere is well thought and functional. The waitress we primarily had was attentive but also smart to accommodate our special requests excellently. Gluten free options were just natural matters to these folks. Local produce favored, even so local that many items were from their own garden. Wine package had good choices,... More

Great cuisine. Excellent service. Very good wine selection.... A place for connesseurs. Local ingredients are revisited and transformed in surprising dishes.

There is difference between food and food! Seeing that so many things are from their own garden makes big difference. Breakfast was better and more exclusive than some other great restaurant ala carte :D

This is THE finest and more innovative restaurant I have been to in years. While in Tallinn and mentioning that we might visit the island of Muhu, 3 different people mentioned that this was home to the best restaurant in Estonia. 2 of them said that Estonians from all over the country will make the trip complete with ferry ride...

My partner and I stayed at the Padaste Manor on Muhu Island for 2 nights in July 2014. On our first night, we had dinner at the much-vaunted Alexander Restaurant which we had read in several places was the best restaurant in Estonia. What a complete disappointment and waste of time this dinner was! The main problem was that the... More

When we asked for the nine course tasting menu, the look on the waitress' face was a picture. 'What's the problem?' we asked. 'The full menu takes five hours,' she replied. It was eight o'clock. We had enjoyed a lovely day around Padaste Manor but we needed our sleep, so we settled for the five course alternative. That involved selecting... More

Alexander has been rated the best restaurant in Estonia several times. It appeared, for no reason. I can easily list ten better restaurants in Estonia, and not only in Tallinn. Setting is nice and beautiful. Service is mostly good, although little too slow. But the food. First, portions are far too big for a nine course menu. Second, none of... More
