MOON [mo:n] means poppy in Estonian.
We love the image of this colourful bold flower. Quite an unusual name
for a restaurant… Even more unexpected is the location – mentally very
far from fancy Old Town, at the same time so close to the sea and very
much in the centre.
Now already a seven years ago head chefs Roman and Igor decided to quit
their careers pursuing high end gastronomy goals and to go back to
their culinary roots. Thus Moon was born. One of our good friends said
after his first visit to Moon –
you have to look back in order to move forward.
We try to be as normal and down to earth as possible, sometimes it
seems that it might be a bigger challenge than making gourmet food,
as all three of us have city backgrounds and simple products demand
much more attention to be able to shine. Simple, honest, sincere,
respectful, local, sustainable, Nordic – these are our food mantras
we want to convey to you on the plates at the hidden corner of wooden

Zashtsherinski warmly welcomes guests, creates a homelike atmosphere
and is in charge of the winelist. Roman and Igor work hard in order to
give us an opportunity to enjoy pure, fresh and better everyday food.
We hope that eating at Moon is like coming to our home. Each chef dreams
of his own restaurant, Moon is our dream come true. At Moon everything is
the way we like it – the food, the interior, the atmosphere.
