Top choice russian in Kalamaja & Telliskivi

Quietly but consistently the best restaurant in increasingly hip Kalamaja, Moon ('poppy') is a Tallinn gem, combining Russian and broader European influences to delicious effect. The staff are delightfully friendly and switched-on, the decor is cheerily whimsical, and dishes such as piroshki (little stuffed pies) and reputation-transforming chicken Kiev showcase a kitchen as dedicated to pleasure as to technical excellence.
