Restaurant & Rooftop Garden

We are inspired by the seasons in the forests, seas, and countryside. We want to offer you the best food experience, working with zero-waste concept, using everything from bloom to root, nose to tail, in the kitchen, bar and pastries. Minimal leftovers will become compost overnight and find its way back to the fields and gardens. Simple, honest and good. The soul behind our restaurant is the passionate sustainable food pioneer, the leader in modern Estonian tastes Peeter Pihel, a man, whose career has been wide from Muhu island (Pädaste) to Sweden (Fäviken Magasinet) and France (Fulgurance). Estonian Restaurant guide White Guide 2021 awarded us with Masterclass 3rd place.

Sustainable pleasure

Fotografiska uses the power of photography to unite, spread awareness and create a positive impact in society. This mindset is well integrated in everything we do. By following our vision of inspiring a more conscious world, we aim to raise the level of awareness and question what we eat, drink and take for granted - nudging society towards more sustainable habits. The restaurant will work with a zero-waste mindset to build an inspiring restaurant focused on an extensive care for the environment. Sustainability practices will run like a read thread throughout the restaurant. The minimal food waste that is left will be put into a bin where after 24 hours compost is created. That will be handed to farmers providing us with ingredients or to nearby restaurants who grow their own herbs. Flower boxes are made out of an old church tower's tin sheets, used oven plates got a new life as bread trays and empty wine bottles are used as vases. We try to keep sustainable and balanced principles in everything we do and this way inspire our guests to follow the same. We will follow the Fotografiska food and beverage philosophy of Sustainable Pleasure, which is founded on the concept of food tasting good while doing good for the world.
