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 ten 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 Restaurant 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 down to earth as possible, which is often a bigger challenge than fine dining, as simple products demand much more attention to be able to shine. Our food mantras – simple, honest, local and sustainable – all presented to You in a Nordic style behind the hidden corner of the wooden Kalamaja suburb.
In the kitchen You’ll find renowned head chefs Roman Zaštšerinski ja Igor Andrejev, Jana Zaštšerinski the head of the restaurant creates a homely atmosphere and Mikk Parre the manager and sommelier warmly welcomes the guests 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.
During the years our food and our spirit has been valued by both local Kalamaja residents and professionals of the industry. White Guide Nordic Silverspoon Gastronomy Award Restaurant Guru Baltic Wine List Awards
