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.

All is nice here! The cafe reminds a European one and you feel you need to say her finally the most important words. And then you hear from her "I will!"

Fine restaurant with mainly French and Italian inspired dishes, not to much choice, but quality good. Good choice for business dinner. No loud music only some video/projector with short old movies playing in the background. Nice interior. (End September 2011)

Situated in between 1905 goda and Krasnopresnenskaya metro stations, this cafe is a good place to have a breakfast or a business lunch. Service is not up to what one would expect, prices are not in line with the quality. Classic interior, 2 floors.
