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

We had dinner in Alexander for two nights in a row and can hands down admit that this is the best restaurant in Estonia. Not only was the food excellent, but we were taken extremely good care by our waitress Joanna for the entire weekend. The dinner at Alexander is an evening long experience, so reserve plenty of time, just... More

Some years ago we visited restaurant Neh, Alexander's spin-off in Tallinn, and decided that one day we'll have to come to Alexander. The restaurant is located at the Muhu island about 2,5 hour trip from Tallinn including a ferry ride. It is located in Pädaste Manor, which is an exclusive boutique hotel. Our experience is from Chef's table, which seats... More

This is really one of Estonia's best restaurants. The menu options range from seven to five to three course menus, and watch out for the many amuse bouche and palate cleaners offered in between. Produce is locally sourced and dishes created and presented imaginatively, using local references and materials. Breads are to die for!!! High quality and highly recommended. Staff... More

Exquisite farm-to-table cuisine in an absolutely beautiful setting. Top-notch service was attentive without being intrusive. Dinner was a real event, with ample spacing between courses. We did the three-course dinner, which changes every day, but there were so many extra courses/amuse bouche-s that we were stuffed by the end!
