Located behind the Bolshoy theatre in the middle of Moscow's luxury shopping area,the Italian/French style restaurant offers an excellent service in a classy atmosphere. The terrace is awesome, you may watch - especially in summer - for hours the Moscow High society and it girls walking by...;)

Perfectly located restaurant serving perfectly delicious food. I absolutely enjoyed all the dishes. The fish was particularly exquisite and fresh. Great coffee and deserts too. Service is efficient and polite. Other advantages include nice interiors and outstanding summer terrace. The brightly flavoured, imaginative and well-cooked culinary masterpieces ensure the ultimate gourmet experience. For the kind of sophisticated gastronomic indulgence offered... More

The food was delicious and the menu was robust. The cost of the meal was unreasonably high. The staff treated us well, but at the end of the meal the waiter was quite bold and practically demanded that we leave him a tip and that we do so in cash (not on the credit card). Also, the restaurant was quite... More

Fabulous, An incredible experience of gastronomic proportion. This restaurant gorgeous,romantic and the food to die for. Service was impeccable and very European as was to be expected. Beautiful room and lighting and the art work exquisite!. If ever in Moscow it is a must. Quite expensive to say the least but something! something! as my father would say. Very special.

The dining room at Cafe Bolshoi is beautiful. The service is impeccable, the food is decent, not great. The white wine we ordered was served warm, which seems to be quite common throughout Moscow when we were there, as was the mineral water. But a good experience at a convenient location.
