    Earlier days, on important holidays and events, special dishes were enjoyed which were different from everyday foods, that turned every event to be extraordinary and much anticipated. Today, the summers in Saaremaa are rousing – numerous guests, cozy evenings filled with buzzing atmosphere from restaurants outer terraces and people’s backyards. By September, everything calms down and for the islander quieter everyday rhythm is replacing the summers sweetness.

    Why shouldn’t we put some liveliness into darker September by upgrading the food culture!

  • Restaurant Week is attracting attention with exciting offers.
  • A lively Market Day in the Kuressaare downtown area with its genuine goods from the island has something to offer for every taste.
  • A big fish day, promotes food coming in from the sea.
