Your private dining table
Alexander Restaurant offers private dining tables in the winter garden for you to enjoy Matthias Diether’s award winning cuisine. At the private tables we offer you a choice of either the daily changing 3-course Table d’Hôte menu or the 5-course Islands’ Degustation menu. Reservations can be made for seating between 19:00 and 21:30.
Lunch is served either at the Pädaste Yacht Club in high summer months or in Pädaste’s winter garden during spring and autumn.
For lunch our chef offers a choice between a two- or three-course Table d’Hôte menu prepared in a somewhat simpler and less elaborate fashion.
Lunch is inspired by Mediterranean cuisine and a nice contrast to the Nordic Islands’ Cuisine served in the evenings at Alexander Restaurant.
