Good french food, but asparagus was not as testy as i thought. Good french music is a plus. There are papers on tables where you can draw while waiting for dinner.

A nice place to have a meal. Very reasonable priced for Moscow . The atmosphere is almost French as the food is. Try it I would say.

Plenty of Russian and French style choices. Stroganoff was yummy also has the spinach as a side... mmm... Also a miracle - reasonably priced... More

Nice place - reasonably priced - but so smokey it is uncomfortable. Even by Moscow standards this place is awful. Too bad - because otherwise it's ok

Simple French fare, done well and in a cozy atmosphere. By Moscow standards it's very reasonable. Will return soon, but fair warning, smoking is allowed.

Very much like a Parisian bistro, but with more leg space. Serves some traditional French dishes, like bœuf bourguignon, hachis parmentier and magret de canard. For a starter would recommend their salmon mousse. Has a decent selection of salads and pies (including onion pie). A good and rather inexpensive (for Moscow) choice of wines - try a 'carafe' of their... More
