Excellent restaurant in Moscow. The first time in my life that I eat real Argentinian food and I'm not in Argentina! The price is a bit higher than in the average for Russia, but with the current exchange rate is actually competitive! really nice experience!

We loved the fillet mignon, Chilean sea bass, grilled vegetables, and garlic bread! We will return! We stopped here for New Years' Eve---The place closed at 6 p.m. It was terrific!

Nice restaurant, good steaks. Very good service, lots of staff available. Little bit pricey but worth it. Open kitchen, coal grill. No credit cards were accepted at our visit day. Otherwise I would gave 5 stars.

Beautiful restaurant with magnificient hostess you want to eat the apple with (it is offered at the end of the meal...). But that's all. Meat asked rare and delivered overcooked. Final bill was increased by 5000 roubles if compared to prices announced in menu. Avoid absolutely !

Staying in Zamoskvorechye

Neighborhood Profile
Zamoskvorechye
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like visiting during the times when it was a medieval Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th century buildings pushing themselves into the 21st century with new businesses opening weekly. Stroll down Pyatnitskaya to taste dozens of global cuisines – from Ukrainian and Georgian to Thai and American.
