Art is a personal experience, a thrill for different senses – a symbiosis of emotions, thoughts, sensations. Art is silence – the moment before judgement when a grape is still a delightful taste but not yet a word.



In Art Priori high-level art is elegantly combined with excellent food. The restaurant’s interior has been executed according to special creative projects in the spirit of Gothic architecture characteristic of Tallinn. Ideas of the old world are linked with the new in a modern way.

Art Priori has three separate dining halls – high value original art is exhibited in each of them. Paintings from the past up to contemporary times offer intellectual and aesthetic experiences that accompany the delicious food like refined gourmet.

Food concept

The restaurant’s open kitchen is highly modern, boasting also open fire – a grill on which most of Art Priori’s artistic dishes receive their final touch. The latest Nordic food trends are followed with the focus primarily on fresh seasonal produce; herbs are grown on the spot and half of the menu consists of vegetarian dishes. The most important aspect is the healthy and harmonious combination of all ingredients on the plate. The kitchen is inspired by pure flavours and the best qualities of each product.

Events concept

The restaurant’s open and creative mentality and the possibilities provided by the premises allow organizing events of most different nature either by the restaurant itself or based on ideas and cooperation suggestions presented from outside.

The restaurant’s everyday priority are events of food and art.

Variety is also provided on the kitchen side. In addition to our own chefs Art Priori invites over renowned guest chefs from outside whose menu is presented and offered in the restaurant as a special event.

Metamorphosis – timeless art

Does art immortalise?

An answer precisely to this question is attempted to be found by the unconventional exhibition of portrait photographs, due to open at Art Priori, that is inspired by immortal painting and temporal culinary art.

Metamorphosis – transformation, play on the borderline of imagination and reality, appearing as one thing here and something different elsewhere – a spectacle, reincarnation whilst remaining oneself to the extent of being able to revert to one’s previous embodiment – a fairy-tale that is sometimes more real than life itself.

This exhibition displays 19 painterly photographs of the staff of the Art Priori restaurant, implicitly transported from their daily jobs into the atmosphere of Renaissance paintings, as one might recall it from still lives of yore. Each picture captures just one contemporary detail, as if carelessly forgotten inside it by the present day, inviting a search for linkages between then and now.

Details of the exhibition to follow already on 7 March.
