Must see!
Oct 2021 • Friends
The museum is an absolute must see! It's not too big but definitely worth a visit. And the industrial surrounding makes it a very cool place. There is a restaurant inside but there are many restaurants and bars just around the corner.

The museum and its staff are remarkable!
Jun 2021 • Couples
The museum was great. The staff that work at the museum were very friendly and we even had a laugh together. It was possible to view the photographies while having a glass of cold white wine for a reasonable price. The exhibition was put together in a very professional but also a funky manner. It was a great way how to spend our evening in Tallinn. Excellent for a date night.

Nice view, microscopic portions
May 2021
It may well have been a fabulous place before the Covid pause, but after re-opening - please beware of the minimalism on the plates! You will feel hungry even after three courses, as even the main course seems to only be there for just tasting. I ordered Falafel for a starter (the chef went just a tad crazy with the chilly), salmon with a few spoonfuls of nettle sauce for the main course - you need a magnifying glass to even spot the salmon - the portion was just so minuscule; and an ice cream dessert, which turned out to include less than a teaspoon of ice cream. Although the taste of the main dish was above average, it was just gone before I even noticed what I was eating. An no salad, no starch whatsoever to accompany the measly portion of fish.

All in all, if the food was any better, this could be an amazing place with its location and view. But I suggest eating something before going there for dinner or you should be prepared to order at least 5 courses, with 8-13 euros each course (which are quite reasonable prices in Tallinn city centre, if there was just MORE FOOD on each plate!). And keep away from their charcuterie for two! It resembles random slices of store-bought ham and sausage tossed into a bowl with some white bread dipped in oil! And the portion size - again! - more suitable for one, not two people! (I'm a tiny person with a modest appetite, by the way).

Maybe this place is best suited for having just one drink to admire the view for a half an hour, tops. The cocktails are expensive for Tallinn and the wine is anything but cheap, as well.

P.S. They do not have printed menus, so when the tiny waitress has to drag a huge board to your table to introduce what they're serving that day, you don't want to bother the poor thing again, so order as much as possible all at once. And, if I didn't emphasize it enough, you will want to order more than 3 courses if you're even moderately hungry!

Fabulous Fotografiska! ... Restaurant!
Oct 2020
The whole newly invigorated district where Fotografiska is is worth exploring. The exhibits at Fotografiska are always fantastic! But make sure you reserve a table at the rooftop restaurant, that will be the highlight of your trip! The restaurant operates on a zero-waste concept - which in this case means FABULOUS food, INSPIRING tasteful experiments (including serving the dessert from a broken piece of a plate) and UNPARALLELED service! Our waiter CARLO treated us like I would love my doctor to treat me - with undivided focus and the ability to detect our every wish - even the unspoken ones. He made our visit into an unforgettable experience!

What a lovely dinner!
Sep 2020 • Friends
We enjoyed 4 course surprise menu with drinks. Food was out of this world, service was very good with Tuscany twist, interiör is great! We were hoping to sit outside but thats only for drinks. On the other hand it the Old Town was relatively dark. Maybe better when Christmas lighst will b there. Very warmly recommended, better to book in advance.

stylish cosmopolitan dining
Sep 2020
After a few attempts to secure a table online I managed to reserve a table on the phone. The location is spectacular. You get the evening sunset panorama of the Tallinn Old Town, plus all the surroundings. The wine list ist is extensive and has some unusual offerings. The service was impeccable and the food was great – contemporary Estonian cuisine, focusing on seasonal selections, nothing made to simply make you feel stuffed. The cheese selection as an alternative for the dessert came surprisingly already ready-made as "sandwiches" on home-made crisp-bread – why not. Looking for a stylish cosmopolitan dining place in Tallinn – this is it.

good for drinks

It is posh (even snobbish) with excellent views, nice service, and a good angle but the food - although most of it tasted good and all of it was original and creative - just did not work for me. At all. Do you really have to ferment everything?

I already visited Fotografiska Sthlm and this is also great for photo lovers. In the middle of the creative center of Telliskivi where u can watch a lot of Graffitiart on the walls. This was great!
