Great view by the Cathedral!

There are many Akademia restaurants all over Moscow. There is one we love: it's by the Saviour Cathedral, just in front of it. We like it because the staff is friendly, the menu choice is quite good, with tasty salads and great desserts and also the tea selection is fine. They always try to be... read more

We were looking for another restaurant and a Russian gentleman told us this one was good. Not even close. The service and food very mediocre.

Popped in for lunch on a grey weekday and were greeted poorly by a very surly guard who's mission in life is to look ominous. The rest of the staff weren't very friendly either and we noticed that others got served quicker than we did but we couldn't figure out if that was by accident or if they didn't know... More

There are many restaurants at this area. Unfortunately we had chosen this one. The food was rather average, the staff forgot a lot of things and they didnt know what they still had. So if I go at this area again, I will choose a different restaurant

It was Sunday, the place was not crowded but pretty much full, which created a very nice atmosphere. The interior is very cosy, and the cafe is situated in a nice pedestrian touristic street in the centre of the city. It has great coffee and wide variety of desserts. It is nice place to get a cup of coffee just... More

Probably the only place where they can serve salad which is inedible. Fresh greens and a sauteed mushrooms with overdose of sodium. Very bad pasta. For the price they charged, they could have served at least one dish proper. I would definitely recommend anyone to go this place.

We went for pizza. We ordered drink and 5 pizzas when waiter comes after 10 minutes of waiting. After that we get pizzas and drink comes after few minutes. Food is correct and place is comfortable with good location. Maybe little bit overpriced but service is very poor.

Comfortable chairs in a great people-watching spot. About the only place on Kamergersky which doesn't have queues on a Friday night, probably because of the price. We ordered the Hawaii and the Spinach pizzas. Both were very tasty, very thin crust and generous toppings. Not cheap, but central. Good service.

Poor service. Bad risotto. We send it back and the staff did nothing to fix it, or replace it. Good pizza and caprese salad. Reasonable esplanade.
