It s top place in Moscow to eat meat and drink good alcohol. We spent a peerless evening. Met a couple Vladimir and Olga, and miss them at this restaurant.

Arguably the best steak joint in Moscow, the steaks here are invariably good, and occasionally fall into the outstanding category, depending on your luck with the cow of the night. It is a very macho atmosphere, as it is popular for business lunches and dinners. A 75-80% male clientele, with occasional cigar smoke adding to the testosterone levels. Prices are... More

I made the disastrous mistake of recently suggesting to a large group of friends that we go here after a concert at Dom Muzyki (given proximity). The wine list has to be the most cynically, abusively-priced list on the planet. The cheapest wines were $130. One was totally undrinkable, the second was barely drinkable. Similar wines would cost $20-25 anywhere... More

Steaks are excellent! By far the best steaks in Moscow maybe even Europe! Service is also good! Expensive, but worth it.

The steaks are amazing. The hostesses beautiful, The interior a bit like a run down Tex Mex Cantina. Service ok. The only reason I cannot - and will not - give 5/5 is because of the prices. They are HUGE! Both for alcohol and food. Yes, I know, I know this is Moscow...but €12> for a beer is not even... More

It's a real foodie place, being going for years, they have perfected steak cooking to an art form - great wine list, beer isn't a priority for the restaurant or clientele it would seem - fabulous salads, service is a tiny bit hit and miss, always very professional but not so engaging - you'll pay a lot but it's worth...

Being Steaks aficionado I expected a lot from the place. I decided to order Chateaubriand Steak. First disappointment - it is only 300gr and costs 2900RUB ($100). There is some tiny side included plus set of tasteless sauces. Waiter was serious disappointment. He did not ask how I would like this steak to be prepared. I may only assume it... More

Went there recently to celebrate friend's birthday, and was surprised to find this restaurant holding up in the same location for nearly ten years. The place is primarily famous for its steaks, which are nearly perfect - but it's hard to imagine it being different for a steak priced between $60 (smallest) and $150. Other food (scallops, black cod, etc)... More

Their selection of grilled meat is very, very rich. My favourite is lamb rack and the mixed grill, although it may not be to everyone's taste as it includes some 'parts' that some people may not eat. Expect to pay about $60 for a two course meal and with wine the sky is the limit
