Restaurant Gunpowder Cellar (Püssirohukelder)

Lossi tänav 28, Tartu linn, Tartu


The Gunpowder Cellar, where you can find Estonian and German dishes, has a history of 300 years. The unique interior architecture takes you back in time, away from your daily routine.

We have a patented beer, the Gunpowder Red (Püssirohu Punane), and soups that you cannot find elsewhere.

The restaurant has 300 seats, but you can also organise more private events here. Catherine’s room, named in honour of Catherine II, seats up to 25 people and the Schramm chamber, where you are seated at long trestle tables, can seat up to 30 people.
