Moon (in translation Papaver flower) is created by arguably (though I would not argue that at all) the best chef in Estonia, Roman Zaštšerinski and his cousin Igor Andrejev, also a renowned chef. It is a small family restaurant, a long time dream of the two passionate chefs. Both Roman and Igor have Russian backgrounds and therefore their menu is a fusion of their childhood flavors and Estonian produce, offering Russian classics like blinis, Uhhaa fish soup and Siberian dumplings.
When Roman and Igor opened Moon a few years ago their idea was to offer the same amazing food that they used to prepare in the high-end restaurants where they came from, Roman from restaurant Ö, which has been nominated several times as the best fine dining restaurant in Estonia, and Igor from Tchaikovsky, the best high-end Russian restaurant in town, in a more simple environment and with more affordable prices.
They succeeded well, since opening Moon has been noted as one of the best restaurants in Estonia every single year. And their prices are very reasonable indeed, ranging from € 9 to € 17 for a main course.
The restaurant is very popular, so you’d best book ahead to get a table, for both lunch and dinner.
