I've visited Pädaste Manour almost every summer, since it opened 20+ years ago. Dining at Alexander has always been a great experience, but the new head chef Matthias has taken this restaurant to a new level! It's a rare experience in the ART of cooking. Highly recommend!!

We went for the full nine course tasting menu, and the feast that was delivered over the next three hours was sublime. The simple luxury of the restaurant setting definitely supports to enhance the food and experience. Not too many tables so you don't feel crowded. I loved the use of flowers and garden produce, so fresh and delicate. Petit... More

We had a delightful dinner at Muhu. The food was very good; the service was leisurely but excellent. Two quibbles that bear mention. They have mosquitoes dining on the diners, while the diners are enjoying their dinner. We were more amused than annoyed ... swatting bugs was somewhat of a competition (my wife and I got three each, the kids... More

This was a very special experience as we plumped for the Chefs table in the kitchen with paired wine tasting. You actually sit side-by-side on a comfortable raised bench so you both have full view of the kitchen. The staff were very welcoming and we certainly enjoyed the show. The food is amazing and I am sure others have written... More

This is one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. You do not expect a Michelin-star type restaurant on a tiny island in Estonia! The setting is gorgeous. Padaste Manor is picture perfect with lawns rolling down to an inlet in the sea. The Alexander Restaurant is located in a glassed-in winter garden type room which feels suspended... More

Alexander is set within the sumptuous Padaste Manor. Each evening there is a a 7 course tasting menu or three course supper menu with extras from the kitchen. The supper menu changes each evening unlike the tasting menu. The food presentation is a work of art and the flavours are outstanding. The wine pairings with the food are excellent. The... More

I would say that Alexander easily deserves all the praise it gets, including the Best Restaurant in Estonia title for many years in a row. Having dinner at Alexander was easily one of the most memorable nights of my life. Everything is luxurious, decadent and nothing short of perfect. The menu, which included quite a few things that I might... More

Alexander's is the kind of restaurant that makes a tremendous impression--and it's all good. Located in the lovely Padaste Manor on Muhu Island, it's definitely worth the trip. The setting is luxurious without being overdone, the food is truly outstanding, and the service is incomparable. The dining room overlooks a beautiful lawn that ends in a woods throughout which small... More
