The food in Cafe Michel is just outstanding. Normally in Moscow Restaurants are very expensive but in Cafe Michel you can get the best food for very little money. If you go there, please make sure that you get a reservation on the second floor.

I'm frequenter at Cafe Michel. It combines friendly atmosphere, elegant interior with "Russian style" French cuisine for decent price, especially nowadays when ruble dropped down. Book the table in advance, even for breakfast.

A superb bijoux restaurant with extremely friendly staff, passionate piano player only matched by Michel's passion for customer service. Try the Autumn menu specials, which add a little bit of live action to the dining experience (lamb navarin).

As simple as that - one of the best places in town. Can stop for a coffee and desert on a groudn floor or come up for proper lunch or dinner... Stunning atmosphere, lovely food, good wine and a reasonable bill - what else would you need for a perfect date?

We went there for my friend's birthday dinner. At the beginning we had a pleasant surprise from the chef. My small daughter was welcomed by the staff - they gave special sheets to color to her and a set of crayons. The atmosphere was great - a shabby chic style which is very fashionable. The only thing that made a... More

The best French restaurant in Moscow. Really delicious cuisine and good selection of wines. Very nice staff. it's always nice to spend an evening with your Love here. Especially love the live piano playing and old black and white movies in the evenings.

The food and service were excellent here. The staff are attentive without being overbearing and they've always been welcoming. Menu available in English. The fusion of food (Thai soup!) is great and I love the salads here which are small but filled with different colors and fresh. As others have mentioned, it's also a great atmosphere.

Went in early on a Saturday night. After the hostess fully looked me up and down, she informed me that there was no availability. Find this suspect as it's a big resto and I saw empty tables. Too bad b/c it was recommended. Will not try again.
