6th floor restaurant

Leaf to root, nose to tail.

Sustainability. Seasonality. Territory. Fotografiska restaurant follows environmental-friendly approach. We use creative cooking methods, waste no raw materials and produce no waste. Everything, from flower to root or nose to tail, finds a use – in the kitchen as well as in the bar. What little is left over, however, becomes compost overnight, which circulates back to the fields. Our efforts have been recognized with the Michelin Green Star.

Tuesday - Saturday 12–23
Sunday 12–16
* 12–16 lunch menu; 17–23 evening menu

Restaurant closed: July 20, August 20 and August 28.

The only Michelin Green Star-worthy experience for three consecutive years in Estonia.

Lunch Fotografiska
Starting from the end of May, you can also enjoy a menu consisting of the season's juiciest flavors at the restaurant's lunch table. The kitchen is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 12 pm to 4 pm, offering summer terrace views and a diverse selection of drinks. Lunch at Fotografiska is casual, with flexible pricing (starting from 9 €), ever-changing, and suitable for a quick lunch break. Nonetheless, the main theme behind the flavors persists, with seasonality, closeness to nature, freshness, and sustainability as its primary focus.

Dine Fotografiska
The evening menu at Fotografiska restaurant is brimming with seasonal themes, inspired by art and the abundance of summer flavors around us. The restaurant's à la carte menu is delightfully rich, sustainable, and out of the ordinary, adventuring into art for inspiration. Fotografiska's evening zone is open in its renowned excellence from Tuesday to Saturday, 5 pm to 11 pm.

Taste Fotografiska
The Fotografiska restaurant's multi-course special menu carries curated taste experiences with Peeter Pihel's signature. The top flavors of the season create a luxurious and celebratory atmosphere, providing a deeper insight into the essence and soul of Fotografiska. The inspiration for the tasting menu comes from the world-renowned art experienced in the museum's exhibitions, with the summer flavors influenced by the season's grand exhibition 'In Bloom'.

Fotografiska restaurant

Our whole philosophy and essence is intertwined with sustainability and we try to guide people to respond to it. In the kitchen or in the bar, we use all the raw materials, from blossom to root and nose to tail. Whatever is left over finds its way to the composter and back to the fields. We grow herbs, preserve seasonal produce and keep bees in our rooftop garden to make the enjoyment of good food sustainable and with the smallest possible footprint.

– Executive Chef Peeter Pihel

Sustainability. Seasonality. Territory.

With our vision – to inspire a more conscious way of sensing the world – we are paying attention to what we eat and drink and trying to guide people towards more sustainable habits.

We make the most of the fresh, local ingredients that come our way, whether it’s in the kitchen preparing a dish or behind the bar mixing up a cocktail. The minimal food scraps that are generated in the restaurant are put into the compost bin, where they are turned into compost within 24 hours. This in turn is given to farmers who supply the restaurant with raw materials or to other restaurants who, for example, grow herbs on site.

Our efforts have been recognised with a Michelin Green Star (for gastronomy and sustainability) and 2nd place in the White Guide 2022 Masterclass for Estonian restaurants.

The soul of our food is Peeter Pihel, a sustainable restaurant advocate with a varied career (Pädaste, Fäviken Magasinet, Fulgurance). Kristjan Kiho is responsible for the seasonal and unique wine list.
