Fairytale setting by Patriarchs Pond

In the heart of Moscow, the Pavilion's terrace tables are absolutely at the water's edge, where ducks and swans have attracted mothers and children since pre revolutionary times, and the spirits of Bulgakov's Master and Margarita roam through the tree-lined paths.

I am not saying that it is a bad restaurant, but as a high-class, the service should not be poor like that. While we were paying the bill, the waitress use one-hand to gap the check and money! When we leave the restaurant, no one say thank you and goodbye to us, and the most worst thing is that one... More

Pavillion is located on the bank of Patriarchie pond, a very historical and picturesque area of "old Moscow". Dining by the pond in a park, watching swans swim by and people strolling - one can almost forget that one is sitting in the middle of huge city. very relaxing Food is somewhat expensive, although not overly so. The menu presents... More

When have older folks visiting, take them here for dinner. Seat by the window to get great view of the pond. Best wild mushrooms soup I ever had - great with vodka in winter. Nice presentation, OK wine list. Music can be weird - they play nostalgic Soviet tunes. Crowd is a mix of an occasional hipster, some family celebrating... More

Despite the reasonable (but pricey) food, we had a very strange experience here. Not only did they forget to bring my starter, but they refused to take it of the bill in the end. The horrible dinner music (think loud MIDIs) also didn't help. Location is very nice though.

Really good Russian food for my opinion I think the price is little excessive but we paid for all. With nice environment, the personal are really nice and take care of you. They serve everything even bread with butter like in france. It's restaurant we do for special occasion.

The restaurant is located in a residential area, just by a beautiful small lake. Inside you can admire the classy elegance and on top of that enjoy the phenomenal food and great service. I had my Borscht soup and Beef Stroganoff. Both were made to perfection! I will be back for sure!

The restaurant is located directly on the Patriarshiy Ponds. A nice location inside and outside for coffee, lunch, dinners, and receptions of any kind. The interior is cozy, set in a Russian style from the turn of the century. The service is very friendly and helpful and some staff speak English very well. The food selection offers many traditional Russian... More

We booked a table at 7:30pm and arrived on time. Since there was a private functions downstairs, no one attending us, so we patiently wait and reading the menu. After 30 minutes, a waiter came to serve us but cannot speak English, then he served another table which came after us, but those guests left the table immediately after talked... More
