Were taken there by our Russian relatives and were not disappointed in any aspect of the place. The menagerie at the rear of the restaurant comes as quite a surprise when you see a goat, a cow,peacocks, and various other animals.They are all behind glass and are completely separate from the restaurant. The food is exquisite, and staff attentive.

Three of us had dinner here July 6. It is a bit of a challenge to find as it is in a row of restaurants with a ubiquitous entrance. Once you climb the stairs to the second floor, you will find a spacious and comfortable layout. We had been to this restaurant several years ago and found the new design... More

Minuses: not close from the metro Pluses: Visited based on recommendation. Found a table for us despite not having booked. Great interior and convivial atmosphere. Food did not disappoint and in keeping with surroundings. 3rd trip to Moscow and this by far the best restaurant I've visited.

Tried a variety each of which was good and recommend a visit. Pickled tomatoes were sweet, Borscht outstanding and buck wheat a real treat.

Everything is great in this restaurant: food, service and atmosphere. I have been to quite a few restaurants in Moscow but this one is definitely the best I've tried so far. The food is simply delicious and I particularly recommend the starts and the yummy home-made bread. I am a bit sorry for the animals, especially the cow, but I... More

The food is great, the service is friendlier than most places in town, but the discomfort I felt having to watch the neglected animals, completely ruined my meal. If you are even the slightest bit of an animal lover, the depressed, segregated cow and tied-up goat straining for unreachable water will surely distract you from enjoying your evening. At times...

Staying in Presnensky

Neighborhood Profile
Presnensky
The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers along with the White House - where the Russian government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo, National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is usually packed with the events such as organ music concerts.
