“Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This restaurant is out of a movie with Humphrey Bogart. You go back in time maybe 50-60 years.
The food, though pricey, is perhaps the best you will ever have. Service is slow though because the restaurant is full 24/7. It is worth going to Moscow just to enjoy this restaurant. Be prepared to spend about u$70 per person just for starters. Worth every penny!

“Cozy, good imitation of dining in Russia before the Revolution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Absolute must for any tourist coming to Moscow who wants to get an impression of Moscow autrefois. Good choice of Russian dishes, extensive breakfast choice, well located, attentive staff, very cozy yet elegant interior, equally suitable for business or romantic meeting, quite expensive though

“No thrills, overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The food was OK, but no thrills. As I'm vegan I tried out a few salad options and a mushroom dish. The salads were OK, but nothing special. The mushroom dish was tiny. Overall, it seems like the restaurant is overrated. Most of the customers ate ribs anyway.
There is only a non-smoking section passively inhaling the smoke from the smoking tables nearby.

“Historical ambiance with fine cuisine in Moscow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Being in Cafe Pushkin is a historical experience. The lift is like the middle ages and the entrance is mysterious. When entering cafe Pushkin you will feel like going back in the past. The cuisine is excuisite. Especially the tuna filet with black noodles in soya sauce. It is served with a red rose. Thank you cafe Pushkin!

“Beautiful but...”

The place is nice, truly amazing athmosphere and right in the heart of Moscow.
Could be a wonder pklace if the prices were just a bit more realistic. The bill spoils the whole deal.
