As least one time per year we’re visiting this awesome place. Here you can find everything: very tasty food, delicious cocktails, cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. There is a regular menu and the gastronomical set, which is updated every year. Actually, we’ve tried here 4...sets (through the years, they update them every year) and every one was special and very interesting. This time we also chose set and it was extremely perfect! The whole set has one common idea of different sides of Nordic cuisine. It consisted of suitable starter, different hot dishes and wonderful dessert as a finish. Of course, we couldn’t resist to our desire to start our evening with a gravlax from the main menu - it definitely worth your attention. Signature cocktails are very interesting - every one reflects the whole concept of the place. Stones, pine and wood, fire - these ingredients help with the serving :) looks and tastes very good. I also want to highlight that there is a very very attentive staff. Guys can help you with a choice and can tell you a lot of information about every dish. Highly recommend!More

It’s one of the best restaurants I’ve visited in my life. I still wonder how these amazing guys have managed to develop a whole new experience out of a cuisine which is very, very peculiar — for obvious and objective reasons, since the produce that...grows in Scandinavia is quite scarce because of the harsh climate. Yet, they Björn has managed to surprise — and it has become one of my go-to places every time I visit Moscow. If you’re into really special and unique foodstuffs, you should definitely pay Björn a visit!More

Tasty and high quality food. There is special set menu, Chef updates it once a year. Really interesting combinations of tastes and products, good experience to try something new and unusual. This time we tried set which is tropical fruits inspired but prepared from true...Russian products. I recommend you to guess ingredients before your waiter tell you all the details about every part of the set. Main menu is really cool. There are excellent starters: I highly recommend you to try liverpustay, trout tartare and Northern fish with mousse - these ones will worth your attention! There is also big variety of main courses. Cocktails are good and interesting with unusual serving. For example, some cocktails are inside the rock, others are with pine or with twigs of fir. Good and friendly service, staff is polite. Book table in advance especially from Thursday to Sunday.More

I had read that this restaurant was very popular with US and UK expats a few years ago, so I was expecting it to be very expensive. I was however very reasonably priced with excellent service, stylish decor and food cooked with high quality fresh...ingredients. It is very suitable for vegetarians and people who prefer organic foods.More

I like this place, the decor is discreet, food is Scandinavian which is unexpected for me, but it is almost imposible to make wrong choice. Waiters explaining the menu with enthusiasm. I would say that this place is the best for lazy cozy evening with...family/friends. Prices are not very high for Moscow. Main courses are about 1000₽ , but you can order a starter (~500₽) which can be enough. Highly recommend try their cocktails and deserts.More

Great visual aesthetics experience. Everything is very tasty: variety of rear meat/fish dishes. There is one interesting option in menu: degustation set from chef. It’s really got my attention: appetisers, main course, dessert were really high quality. There are different cocktails in menu which suit...for this type of food (usually served with pines, cones, wood). Also you can try wine and other alcohol.More

For our final night in Russia we decided to have something good but different and so selected Bjorn which was close to our hotel. It was quite a busy restaurant but with very good service by English speaking waiters. We had smorgasbord to start which...was excellent, followed by two fish dishes for our main course. We drank excellent beer. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty and the bill came to 6,500 roubles excluding service. And now comes my gripe, sparking water was 850 roubles (670cl) and ginger tea was 600 roubles. I would definitely come back to Bjorn but I would check the drink prices more carefully next time.More

This place came highly recommended by a friend who used to live in Moscow. Being Swedish, I was not sure I had to go, but we did and it did not disappoint. Some very unusual and delicious dishes, in a quieter neighborhood of Moscow. The...decor was simple Scandi style; very nice. The service was great. Highly recommended.More

I was at this restaurant for lunch and decided to try their "Tasters set" (3000 RUB) that consists of 7 small but tastiest dishes plus dessert: 1) Prawn with a mousse of pears and honey. 2) Bread with sea urchin caviar, pickled onions and corn...mousse. 3) Scallop with dried raspberry topping. Served with yogurt and Porphyra (seaweeds). 4) Mackerel with pickled apple. 5) Squid soup with fermented squid, sour cream and young onion shoots. 6) Squid with celery and mint. 7) Bread with smoked catfish, sour cream, parsnip, and black currant leaves. Dessert) Scoop of cloudberry mousse, yogurt, red caviar, and fennel. Every dish is a piece of art. Waiter describes each ingredient and that makes the food even tastier. Alongside with stylish hall, every lump of bread and every delicate slice of food makes this place ideal to enjoy your life.More

From start to finish, this was a truly memorable dining experience. The restaurant is cosy and the staff are extremely friendly and attentive. Our meal was exceptional and we enjoyed hearing about each dish from our waiter as it was served. The presentation of the...dishes was also excellent and added to the narrative of the dish.

The food is good but the manager of the restaurant is not nice at all. There are other places in Moscow with better food so just to look at interior is fine but don’t expect the best and be careful

we stumbled across this place by pure chance and it looked pretty busy, so we went in and what a great choice it was, we don't speak any Russian but the staff spoke enough English that we muddled through, we decided to eat all Russian...dishes as we were in Russia and the food was excellent, the portions were not huge but we had three courses and we needed them and we were full when we left, but it was the quality and taste of the food that we loved, the drinks weren't badly priced either, the atmosphere was great and we just felt very comfortable here, all in all I would highly recommend this placeMore
