Very good restaurant not far from the red square. The atmosphere is nice even if music could be a bit too loud and "cold". Dishes are good but it's expected considering the prices.

The food was good. I had Borscht soup and tuna tartar for starters. And my main course was scallop risotto. The mixed berry tea was amazing after a big meal. Honey cake was my dessert which was soft and not too sweet. The service was impressive. We were a big group and we wanted to take a photo all together.... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to and my wife and I are thankful for our friend who lives in Moscow inviting us to eat here. The upscale "living room meets garden" indoor and outdoor dining experience is "over the top" in it's design. Whoever was the restaurant's designer did a great job and is... More

It is, in fact, very garden-like inside. There was live music in the main dining area. Price was in line with other Moscow restaurants. No crazy high charges.

The English title is deceptive. "Sad" (Сад in Russian) means garden. This is a great place for dinner, especially in the winter garden. There are cages all over the place with lovely little birds in them. There are also some birds flying freely. Really cool atmosphere. Regarding the food, it is a type of Spanish fusion, although there are a... More

Staying in Yakimanka

Neighborhood Profile
Yakimanka acts as Moscow’s evergreen lungs with prime beaches on the Moscow river. All the benefits of visiting and living in Yakimanka are gathered at the Moscow river embankment – three parks: Gorky, Muzeon and Neskuchny garden shape this green stripe with museums showing the hippest contemporary art. The area is full of activities for your eyes (museums), mouth (restaurants) and feet (sport and dance-wise). Access anywhere is easy, just hop on a river boat and continue your journey throughout the city.
