Cafe Michel is a place where you can have a delicious breakfast, lunch with business partners or dinner in an unforgettably romantic atmosphere. The head chef invites guests on a gastronomic journey. The taste and aroma of the coffee at Cafe Michel leave no doubt that this restaurant really is a small corner of France on Krasnaya Presnya13.

I was at this place 2 yrs ago and then it was good quality for the price. Today the menu choice is poor at best and the food is tasteless and plastic. One more restaurant that has succumbed to squeezing out the last penny from their customers and attracting rich people who don't come for the food but to be... More

I have been to Cafe Michel twice, both times for lunch. The restaurant has a french/itslian style, and is a pleasant break from the many chain restaurants and smaller cafes. The food is good, albeit not fantastic. I've had two different dishes on my visits, first a salad with duck and orange, the second time I had saffron risotto with... More

Cafe Michel is one of the best restaurant I've never went in Moscow. For a French guy like me who like to go to authentic French restaurant in Paris it's always difficult to go to French restaurant when I'm traveling in other countries. But this problem doesn't exist in Moscow with Cafe Michel. Cafe Michel is a really authentic place... More

Wonderfull food in a a cozy-chic place close to the centre of Moscow. It's a great choice to have lunch, dinner or just some coffee (don't miss the homemade macarron). If you don't speak russian, don't worry: they have an english menu.

I found this recommended on the Internet as dining out can be a little pricey in Moscow. This restaurant left me speechless - the decor is classic in this old restored house and the food is 5star. I had a warm foie gras salad followed by duck in passion fruit sauce. Exquisite. Amazingly the restaurant prices are not so expensive... More

Staying in Presnensky

Neighborhood Profile
Presnensky
The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers along with the White House - where the Russian government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo, National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is usually packed with the events such as organ music concerts.
