Alexander Chef's Table invites for an extraordinary dining experience in the city of Tallinn, personally hosted by Matthias Diether - Chef de Cuisine of Estonia's finest restaurant Alexander at Pädaste Manor.

It is not a restaurant, it is a Dinner Society  for foodies who enjoy discovering new experiences. Matthias welcomes guests to his residence on Toompea hill, secluded and privately located in one of the oldest mansions of the city with a fabulous view. 

The Chef and his team take you on a culinary journey, serving a fabulous 7-course Islands’ Degustation menu. Occasionally Matthias might introduce a special guest, or dedicate an evening to one of the pleasures of life. Regardless what is on that evening, we assure you of a splendid time and magic is in the air.

It is an elegant, but at the same time relaxed fine dining experience personally hosted during 4 days per week by Michelin starred Chef de Cuisine Matthias Diether. It's a place to have fun and meet likeminded people that appreciate great food and good conversation.
