Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ordered 2 Estonian dessert wines. Both nice. The salmon flavour was different from what i had before, probably this is the estonian way of cooking it. Nice flavour while preserving the salmon taste. Also had a cappuccino.

It’s our first time in Estonia so I did quite a bit of research on where to eat while in Tallinn. Restoran Moon came highly recommended and is mentioned in almost all travel blogs about Tallinn. I notice a few recent bad reviews but decided...to give it a try anyway. The night we had dinner, there were two groups dining in and most of the tables were occupied but the service couldn’t be any better. Our server was very pleasant and attentive, the food was really good. We had the pirogi and prawns for starter, chicken kiev and fish cake for main and the napoleon cake for dessert. Honestly, they’re all fantastic and we didn’t leave anything on the plates. I feel it’s necessary to write a good review to balance out the bad reviews they had recently so people wouldn’t have a second thought about having a meal here. 10/10 would recommend this place.More

Perhaps it was just a bad evening. On a Restoran one expects a decent Chicken Kyiv. Now I could not find it. Just some weird chicken filled with pesto and with no flavours at all. No garlic, no herbs? Small portions so one should order...several starters. The wine was decent, though. Not going there again, can find better at my local supermarket. Michelin recommendation, really?More

Disapointing and definitely not worthy beeing mentioned in Michelin context in any aspect. Slow service, waitress had low comptence about food and wines, and last but not least food was below average. Tender and nice looking Lamb Knuckles but totally tasteless and killed by salt.

Yesterday my husband, my baby and I came by to lunch at Moon restaurant. It was not our first visit to this place, we were there twice in 2017 and it was one of the best culinary experiences in Tallinn. This time it was really...different. After 1 hour and a half waiting we were told that it would take much time to receive main dishes, so they suggest cancelling the order. This was the first time the restaurant suggested order cancellation so gladly, without trying to find a solution. We left hungry to the airport. Was it due to the fact the restaurant was booked for VIPs ? Or because one should plan a couple of hours at least to be served properly? Concerning the food, sorry guys but quality has not been improved since our last visit: fish soup was plain, eggplant tartare was correct but not unforgettable. Unfortunately, we had no chance to try your lamb knee and Kiev chicken, as your staff kindly suggested us to leave. Well, I don’t think we will be ever back.More

The place was packed, no way without booking ahead. Staff was a bit cool, and there was some waiting time for the food, but the preparation and quality was outstanding. Blinis, beetroot soup, pike with poached egg and Kiev chicken - all was great.

We hadn't booked a table but the very friendly waiter seated us even though the place was practically full. The service throughout our meal was amazing, the waitress was so sweet and helpful and explained every meal for us. The meal itself was one of...the best I've ever had, every ingredient and all parts of each meal was perfectly selected. Nothing was used just to fill the plate, but to compliment the rest of the ingredients. Highly recommended, will definitely eat here again the next time I visit Tallinn.More
