Place that wants to be creative, and largely succeeds. We were five, all we ordered was good. Expensive, but food prices logical. Wine ridiculously expensive.

This place serve great food at good prices. All 7 of us was very pleased with our food and the service (but some problems with English for most of the staff) Would come again!

I’ve made 2 visits to Christian this week. My first was a solo trip for brunch. I sat inside on that visit. Today, my spouse and I went for a late lunch. We sat outside. On both occasions, our food was very good and service...was good as well. On my first visit, I had an egg white omelette with ham, tomato, and cheese. It was nice and hot when it arrived at my table. Today, I ordered the risotto with chicken. Although I was surprised by the yellow color, I found it to be hot and very tasty. I’ll definitely be back if I make another trip to Moscow!!More

We were staying at the Radisson Royal and looking for a nearby restaurant when we found Christian. It looked inviting with attractive outdoor seating and then a cosy interior in a rustic European style. The menu had a good variety of food and, although pricy...for Russia, it promised to be a good experience. The meal started with a hiccup as the wine we ordered was not available. However that happens sometimes, and was not a big issue although, of course, the equivalent wine was much more expensive! The meal started well with bruschetta. However my dining partner ordered soup before his main course but they delivered my main course at the same time. I waited a while before starting to eat, thinking this was a bit like a Chinese restaurant where dishes got served as soon as they were ready, but in the end I ate it while my partner waited for his main. 25 minutes later, when I had finished my main course, his main course arrived. This was puzzling as the restaurant was not busy at all. We had enquired in the interim as to where his main course was and did not get a real explanation. They offered a free dessert which we declined, as I had eaten sufficient and we do not normally eat dessert. His meal eventually came and it was good, but the mood of the evening was lost as we could not enjoy eating together. He watched me eat alone, then I watched him eat alone. No offer of a reduction on the bill was made - instead an unwanted dessert arrived which we had already declined. We felt as though they simply had not listened to us. Although we are spending several more days in Moscow we will not eat there again. We are sure there are restaurants where the service is better.More

Nice, cosy place. Try to get the table near big panoramic window. While the ambiance suggests that this is small, family restaurant with traditional cuisine. It is much more behind ,,, every item from what we ordered deserved a 5 star not only because this...is tasty, but the way if was served,,,,every meal is the experienceMore

Christian was a good experience for lunch. We were two families together and the food was just as good as you could expect from a restaurant at this pricerange. Freindly staff and a charming dining hall. Only thing that was a minus was that it...was not possible to pay by card. I guess this will be fixed.More

Yesterday we had one of the most amazing experiences in a restaurant and it was at Christian. We are from Croatia and Russia, so we know both italian and russian dishes well. This restaurant combined everything on a such subtle, playful and beautiful level where...food is not only tasty and impressively prepared but also well presented often hiding visual secrets to awake emotions of childhood nostalgia or happiness of celebrating life. Staff was professional and also very chill, made us feel like at home just like the entire design of the restaurant is making you feel. We met Chef who is heart and soul of this place and we soon figured out that his personality is why the food and entire atmosphere is on such an amazing professional level that kept that feeling of home. Thank you for this evening, we will come again when we return to Moscow.More
