Best choice in Moscow

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

A wonderful evening. A lovely atmosphere with delicious food and super performances from the pianist. I seriously recommend this restaurant to anyone who want to have more than just dinner but an interesting experience altogether.

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.

The place itself is really good. Based on Michel's high rank on Tripadvisor we expected something really great in this place. It was good we were able to find free table friday evening. I got an excellent glintwine but there excellence was finished. The food we had was nothing but just ordinary. We have duck salad Michel, Capuchinno soup, Garlic... More

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?
