I came in my last night of Moscow and exceeded all expectations. The sea bass, the green fetucini and the black spaghetti with crab meat were excellent. This is the perfect good bye last seen. Ask for a table on the terrace. The view could not be better anywhere in world.

Karlson, is one of the best place where you can spend at least few hours. During the summer you can book a table outside, enjoying one of the best views on Moscow. Just one thing is better than the view: the food prepared by Giacomo Lombardi, one of the best Chef in town. You can also decide to have an... More

I have been to this place with our business partners for dinner. The restaurant is nice, but food is just ordinary.

patchy service and unimpressive food, expensive wine list if stripped of the summer terrace, it poses no interest whatsoever, but it's definitely worth visiting in one of the quiet and mild August evenings, when a good half of the moscovites have left for a vacation, and you own a perfect city view a little more to yourself. Very romantic and... More

Great surprise by this restaurant. Very good view of the city center, fresh, modern, stylish location. Service is good and the food, surprisingly was basically Italian. And I have to say, being Italian, the the quality was very high. Great chef with fantasy but respecting the tradition, I was there with colleagues coming from different countries and all were happy.... More

The roof top terrace gets you a great view of Moscow. The food menu is as usual in Moscow very large. The food is good but I wonder how traditional Russian, Sushi, Burger and Pasta fit together... And who is in the kitchen to prepare it all authentically! The service was not attentive at all, even if the restaurant wasn't... More

Nice place, beautiful view, good service and delicious Stroganov beef. The lounge music is perfect. The price worth it. I've ever eaten there twice...
