Alexander Restaurant occupies the most prominent space on the ground floor of the Manor House. The gloriously proportioned, elegant room with high ceilings opens into a spectacular winter garden and offers sweeping views over the park with its ancient trees.
Chef de Cuisine Achim Braitsch and his team at Alexander are proud to serve innovative Nordic Islands’ Cuisine, respecting the seasons and making maximum use of fresh local ingredients by working with the island’s producers and farmers, while many of the greens and herbs are grown in Pädaste’s own gardens and green houses. Pädaste Manor offers an arresting culinary combination of urban sophistication and wholesome countryside traditions.
In 2021 Alexander Restaurant was included in La Liste’s world’s best 1,000 restaurants and in Sabato magazine’s 100 best European restaurants. Alexander has also been recognized as among the top three restaurants in Estonia and as the best restaurant in Estonia outside of Tallinn for fifteen years in a row.

Join us in our Expedition in Search of the Nordic Islands’ Cuisine. We highly recommend our guests to enjoy the Islands’ Degustation. The dinner lasts approximately around 4 hours and will definitely be one of the highlights of your stay, specially if enjoyed at the Communal Chef’s Table.
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.
