The building of the Concert Hall is a tourist attraction in itself: its wonderful neo-Gothic facade was finished in 1989 and in the beginning there was a... thermal power station inside. The architects created a building with plenty of details: flanks, rose windows, towers... In 1997 the Baltic Philharmonic took over the power station and modified it into a concert hall.


The restaurant is a real star among local establishments - it's situated on two stories (the surface of each storey is 100 square meters). There is also a VIP room with a surface of 30 square meters. If it's summer you should definitely go to one of the terraces: the first one is on the roof and the second one on the quay.

The most important thing at the Filharmonia is the food of course. The menu changes every season and the chef offers real gourmet adventures. Kristoffer Basznianin, the chef, has been trained in some of the world's best-known restaurants. Just take a look at his resume: the Rovers in Seatle, Madison Eleven in New York (three Michelin Stars, the world's fifth best and North America's best restaurant), the six-star hotel Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, The Test Kitchen in Cape Town ( the word's 61st best restaurant), the Ukrainian restaurant Pena in Kiev, the Belgian restaurant In de Wulf in Dranouter and in Scandinavia's top restaurants: Fäviken, Noma and Kadeau. 

Let's take a look at a seven-course tasting menu: cod roe emulsion, chicken crackers, marinated scallops, creamy shrimp bisque, saffron aioli; monkfish, rowanberry, borecole, mushrooms, Jerusalem artichoke; laurel sorbet; roe deer, aronia, chestnuts, horns of plenty; marinated pear, camomile jelly, thyme sauce, camomile sauce; chocolate and caramel symphony, lemon jelly, canary balm... Of course, you can always order something a'la carte if you don't have too much time.

Doesn't it sound tasty and exciting? Take a look at some pictures:
