“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

We had an excellent dinner in this restaurant. It is a relaxed, not too fancy but yet cosy place. The food is superb, Russian origin, but modern and more European versions of that. The wine list is not too wide but well chosen.

The service was very friendly and professional. We had a bottle of very nice red wine (half of the whole bill) and started with pelmens and warm bufala mozzarella with Muscat pumpkin pure. Then we took some time with the menu and ended up having the duck breast and the lamb cutlet. Both (and all) dishes were very good. We shared all the portions so that we could taste them all well and both of us liked all of them. The portion with the minced lamb cutlet and especially the goat cheese cream was my favourite.

Little bit more than 100€ was very reasonable price and I hope that this restaurant keeps their way of doing things. Good food, relaxed atmosphere and reasonable prices. I'm going back.

“nice food, friendly service, decor not so nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We shared 4 dishes for the 2 of us. The fish soup was rather tasteless but the stewed eel , duck liver and stroganoff were delicious, with the eel being the top dish. We had 4 glasses of red wine and paid 65 euro. It is not exactly a resto to spend the evening because we were out in 1 hour, it is also not cosy enough for that purpose, more like a family resto.

“Back again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

My second visit to Moon, having been there back when it opened about 4 years back. Well the good news is it hasn't changed, service is still good, reasonably priced local cuisine with a modern twist. I had the steak Tartare which is well worth having there. I suppose there are so many new places opening that the expectation levels go up all the time, but Moon is still delivering - so if its not broken,...

“Very good food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

I've heard of that place long time ago, but did only recently visit it for the first time. I was not disappointed. Food (veal and duck) was very good and so was the service. Prices are a little bit more expensive compared to other similar restaurants, but it's worth every penny (or cent). Only thing you need to know before visiting this place - you probably need to book a table beforehand.
