3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2014

The restaurant is very handily located for all the central hotels and the decor is very tasteful & pleasant. While the food is nice enough, the portions are small for the steep prices and the service patchy (you don't expect a restaurant of this quality to forget your side dishes). Wine list very expensive. Should be better given the setting.

We dined here in this very upmarket place and the only disappointment was the price. My wife had rack of lamb which cost €60 and I had Chicken Kiev which was a reasonable €20. Two glasses of wine for €24 and a tip which they reminded me that it was not included made it a crazy priced one course meal... More

Of all the meals we had this was my favourite. The salads were fantastic and such a range as we went with a large group. Food and service were great. Close to Red Square as only 10 minutes walk. Would go back there again next time in Moscow.

We were slightly skeptical about eating here as it looked like the kind of place we would naturally avoid. We sat on the terrace which allowed us to watch the street life which provided a pleasant diversion as we waited to be served which took a a while. When the food did come it was much better than expected and... More

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
