About the restaurant

Cuisine: Fusion / Estonian

Lee: a word describing the ancient Estonian communal fireplace around which life would vividly simmer and crackle; a place to prepare and share delicious meals together. Today’s Lee is inspired by this same primeval joy for familiar life, connecting around tables, sharing food and stories. We are guided by our love of local produce, combined with international skill and playful curiosity. The centrepiece of our menu is always local, sourced from artisan producers and our friends from farms and forests, which we enrich with our own experience from abroad. As we Estonians are ever evolving, our menu also changes accordingly, characterised as ‘local, seasonal and contemporary’. So, we invite you to share plates and stories, thus recreating the joy of the lee with your friends. Welcome to Lee.
