Food is really great. As is decor and ambiance. We ate here twice. The first time we had amazing service. We were told it is customary not to tip unless service is amazing but we did have any cash and embarrassingly stiffed our waiter. The second night we had a new waiter in another part of the restaurant. He seemed... More

We were recommended by locals to go here, and I'm very glad we did. Every single thing we had was delicious, even the bread! The service was amazing, the absolute best you will experience in Moscow. It isn't cheap but for its history and everything you get, it is good value. I highly recommend

We enjoyed an early dinner at Cafe Pushkin upon our arrival in Moscow. We experienced a very attentive wait staff and a fabulous meal of Beef Stroganoff. My 14 year old daughter felt it was the best beef stroganoff that she had during our two weeks in Russia. Cafe Pushkin was great start to our tour of Russia.

Discovered this restaurant via multiple sources (including Trip Advisor), and booked dinner on the strength of favourable reviews. We were not disappointed; the food was excellent, service friendly and efficient, and although it is hardly a bargain basement place we didn't think that it was outrageously expensive on the basis of Moscow prices generally. Would definitely revisit, and happy to... More

Dine in a former Russian Palace. Service is patchy but its a great ambiance. Order the Russian Degustation - terrific!

Hi. I'm sorry this is not actually a review but we are hoping to dine here when we visit Moscow next month and I am hoping someone at Cafe Pushkin can please tell me what hours dinner in the library floor is offered? Both start and finish. Also, what hours for breakfast and lunch? It says online you are open... More

The Café Puschkin looks old and ancient, but actually it was built after the USSR collapsed. When walking in to the Café, you instantly feel like the walls are telling stories of what this place has all seen. There are thousands of old books in bookshelves all around the place. Food was good, but pricey. Although it isn't as old... More

We saved some money so that we could experience some finer dining in Moscow at Cafe Pushkin (mainly because of its historical significance). The decor inside is beautiful and olden with plenty of wood (and historical items on the bar!), and our waiter was dressed finely. He introduced himself personally and was extremely attentive. We were expecting the menu to... More

The first impact is with the magnificent wooden panels and the library, then an impeccable waiter will take you to the table. Try to reserve a table on the upper floor near the library. Take as a starter olivier salad with shrimps then if you are not familiar with russian cuisine, the russki degustation: pelmeni, blinis, stroganoff, chicken Kiev; or... More

Despite the good reviews, I was expecting a tourist trap. Even though this restaurant is very young, the food, atmosphere and total experience all exceeded expectations. What a wonderful place. I had the borsch and entrée sampler (Russian Degustation), while my wife had the sautéed quail breast. We ate here the first night and were spoiled for the rest of... More
