Our local friend in Moscow took us to this delightful little Russian cuisine restaurant behind the Bolshoi, next to the Petrovsky Monastery. Named after the mythical "Kitezh" town that vanished from the enemy attackers' sight to preserve itself, it is situated in an old rustic-style building, with an open court & the main seating & bar down in the cellar....

Tucked along the street behind the Bolshoi, this restaurant offered excellent service and a great menu of traditional food at very reasonable prices. The quality of the food was excellent.

Great place with good Russian food. Visited several times - always terrific. I recommend to start from a glass of Kvas (russian drink), always good here. Fish soup is great. In general, practically everything is good here. Stuff is polite. One has to take some time and relax, enjoying the great food. Sometimes they have live music.

This restaurant is only a couple blocks from the Bolshoi theatre and had a great outdoor seating area. The bacon wrapped lamb and borscht were delicious. Unfortunately, the staff messed up our order three separate times; they served my lamb 10 minutes after my wife’s stroganoff arrived (which meant her stroganoff was cold by the time my lamb came), they...

Goulash and caviar was good. Friendly staff, we visited pre-Bolshoi and were in a rush and they were accommodating for us. Value was good, they were not overly busy when we went. The menu had a good range of dishes

Beef stroganoff and borsch soup, and a nice glass of beer. Simple but tasty. Really neat decor, very friendly and attentive staff. Live musicians were playing for a bit which was a nice touch. Would come back!

For over eight years now an evening at the Kitezh Grad has been a key element of my company's business travel to Moscow. The Kitezh Grad owner and staff have hosted us marvelously in parties of two to eighteen, planning and providing a delightful dining experience with the finest in all aspects of Russian cuisine, hospitality, and service. We and... More

We visited on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was very quiet. It's in a cellar but is well signposted off the street and was easy to find. The decor is themed to be rural and rustic which even extends to the waitresses clothing. There was a big menu and the wines were reasonably priced for Moscow. There was no... More

You just can't go wrong with fresh ingredients and a family cooked and served meal - the regional dishes we picked turned out great. Old building with restaurant in cellar. You can do a great deal...
