That was a hard to find place, outside the old town walls, not far from the Fat Margaret Hostel. Moon, which means Poppy, is one of the best places for sofisticated dishes at an offordable price.

Beware of the application TripAdvisor on Android that will send you outside the city, at the north of Pirita. It is located outside the door where the 3 sister hotel is located.

You can come to this place for a dish only, for instance a soup or an entree. Most customers of Moon do that. All dishes are originally presented. The ingredients are of premium quality. The end result is just great!

They also have another place, located far outisde the city center, that advertise a even more extensive menu, of simpler dishes: KOLM SIBULAT We tried twice to go there, but the first time, the place had been reserved for a private party, and the second time, it was an exceptional closing day. too bad!

To sum up the Moon Kohvik: Definitely a place you have to try if you stay in Tallinn. Keep in mind that the place is not that huge, and that it is better to book a table, before showing up, especially if it is not off season.

Congratulation to all the chefs and the team that does such an excellent job in serving a very creative and refined cuisine.

It has taken us a long time to visit 'Moon'. When it first opened it was fully booked all the time and in the end we just gave up: we shouldn't have! 'Moon' was even better than we expected: excellent food that looked great and tasted even better, interested and friendly service, a pleasant restaurant where we were easily the eldest visitors and all of that at the most reasonable prices we have seen for a long time, even more so when taking the quality of everything offered into consideration. We will definitely return ... often ... we hope!

Nice, cozy, quite small place away from tourist routes - it is a place where locals go. Although it is called a cafe, the food and service is restaurant quality. Even on a 17Pm regular workday all tables are busy or booked, so make sure to get a reservation. The food is a slight variation of the Russian kitchen and it is for sure value for money. For a vegetarian it could be a bigger choice. But for fish and meat eaters it is just enough different courses to choose from.

This popular yet quiet restaurant has one of the best price/quality ratios in town. The food simply cannot disappoint. The sweet and warm service complements the excellence of this gem tucked away from the buzz of the old town - worth a small detour though.
