About us


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

Kalamaja suburb.

Roman Zashtsherinski ja Igor Andrejev occupy the kitchen, Jana

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.

Welcome to our home!

Yours, Roman, Jana and Igor
Moon is opened since 1st of December 2009
