On a recent trip to Moscow we found this delightful bar / restaurant with this lovely outside seating area at the heart of a busy pedestrian street filled with lots of eateries and a theatre. Following a few busy days sightseeing and being very cultural we came here for pre-dinner drinks and cocktails. A very nice cocktail menu, reasonably priced.... More

Perhaps it was because it was cold, but there were very few patrons at this restaurant last night. We dined "Al fresco" ie outside with blankets over our shoulders for warmth (nice touch Academiya. My wife ordered taglialelli with broccoli and focaccia and it arrived so fast that we scarcely had time to take a breath. I ordered American hamburgers... More

Academia is a cafe and pizzeria situated in the Kamergerskiy pedestrian street. First time  I was there probably 10 or 12 years ago and liked it very much. At that time it was an upper class cafe for the moment. Nowdays that part of Moscow is full of POSH luxury restaurants and cafes, but Academia still remains quality. It is... More

Our hotel recommended this place for pizzas and it was a good choice. We had two pizzas-one with fillet of beef and the other with Gorgonzola, spicy salami and black olives. The large pizzas are about 12-14 inches, so good for one if you're starving or enough for two to share with an appetizer. There is also a smaller pizza... More

We were looking for another restaurant and a Russian gentleman told us this one was good. Not even close. The service and food very mediocre.

Popped in for lunch on a grey weekday and were greeted poorly by a very surly guard who's mission in life is to look ominous. The rest of the staff weren't very friendly either and we noticed that others got served quicker than we did but we couldn't figure out if that was by accident or if they didn't know... More

There are many restaurants at this area. Unfortunately we had chosen this one. The food was rather average, the staff forgot a lot of things and they didnt know what they still had. So if I go at this area again, I will choose a different restaurant

It was Sunday, the place was not crowded but pretty much full, which created a very nice atmosphere. The interior is very cosy, and the cafe is situated in a nice pedestrian touristic street in the centre of the city. It has great coffee and wide variety of desserts. It is nice place to get a cup of coffee just... More

There are many Akademia restaurants all over Moscow. There is one we love: it's by the Saviour Cathedral, just in front of it. We like it because the staff is friendly, the menu choice is quite good, with tasty salads and great desserts and also the tea selection is fine. They always try to be attective and come to the...

Probably the only place where they can serve salad which is inedible. Fresh greens and a sauteed mushrooms with overdose of sodium. Very bad pasta. For the price they charged, they could have served at least one dish proper. I would definitely recommend anyone to go this place.

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighborhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
