Our story

The restaurant was named after Baron von Theophil von Stackelberg´s children. Emmeline was one of the names given to his first child and Otto was one of his first son’s names.

Desipte the fact that Emmeline was two years older than Otto, they were very close and shared their innermost thoughts. One shared secret was the art of cooking.

The von Stackelberg´s chef made a fantastic juicy cinnamon flavoured apple pudding that was familiy´s favourite. One afternoon, the chef was cooking this family favourite when Emmeline and Otto ran in to the kitchen which had actually been forbidden to the kids. The children observed and the chef allowed Emmeline to flavour the dish. Thisfinger tip of cinnamon inflamed Emmeline´s passion for cooking and Otto supported her. Emmeline never became a cook, but tasty food was very important to her. During the restaurant renovation we found cinnamon and it was just the hint we needed to name the restaurant after Emmeline who adored good food and enjoyed it with friends; and Otto who always supported his sister and loved to invite good friends over for a drink in the afternoon.

You are sure to find such hospitality and also a real passion for cooking in “Emmeline& Otto“.  A finger tipof cinnamon is still somewhere in the air of the restaurant to arouse your sense of taste to enjoy good food. The restaurant “Emmeline & Otto“ presents a combination of dynamism, intensity, but with a dash of feminine tenderness, elegance and creativity. Here, we love serving good Estonian food whilst our guests enjoy a bit history and tradition and experience the variety and beautiful seasonal colors on their plates. Our menu is simple, with familiar flavours and fresh ingredients.

If you are looking not only for good food, but something chic within a historical setting, then “Emmeline & Otto” is the perfect place to enjoy lunch or dinner or organize an elegant private event for your friends or partners.
