We did not book a table so were assigned the purple couches. You literally sink into the sofas meaning the table is chest high. By default not an ideal way to eat. Can barely hear my colleague talk so far away from each other, with table in between. We asked for another table and was assigned, with effort, the table... More

During our stay in Moscow we went a couple of times at the cafe Mechta. The first time we went there because it was close of the place we were staying, but we decide to repeat because of the treat that offers to us the waiter and of course because he speaks a very good English. We asked him for... More

Perfect location, nice interior, cozy terrace... We come Sunday morning for breakfast. We ordered cappuccino , coffee late, cream cheese pancakes, fried eggs, fresh grapefruit juice... All the food was very well cooked, tasty and fresh! It's very nice place for business meetings also. Prices are quite high.

Well, I went to the place with my wife and ordered lemonade with the meal. They served lemonade for 4 person and charged 1650 rub without noticing before. I don't know why but it's absolutely not worth it and it's not cool.

A friend and I had an occasion to visit this establishment for dinner. The drink selection seemed to be very limited as each thing we ordered from their drinks menu, was unavailable. Our appetizer, Forccachi, was without any taste. Our entrees were extremely small portions and lacked flavor or seasoning. The fish was only partially cooked and the "grilled vegetables"... More

Food is good and nicely served but portions are miniscule even for those used to Soviet era "restaurants", extremy expensive at the same time. Terrace seating would have been nice unless the traffic noise. Waiters are overly attentive to the extent that becomes a bit disturbing.

I have eaten here and had business breakfast / lunches and dinners for years, I love the atmosphere, comfort, shisha pipes (Kalon) and food. Its also not too expensive, and you can get a 10% discount card if you ask. BUT...they have now removed the outside tent / canopy which covered the terrace(probably to comply with new outside smoking regulations?)... More

Mechta is a very cool place to go. When entering it, it looks a bit oriental and the menu is also very wide, so that everyone can find something to eat. We went for delicious Sushi, Salads as well as also some Russian Traditional food. Very attentive staff and also a very nice atmosphere. Will come again soon!
