Maybe the prices reflect the location near the Kremlin but they certainly don't merit the very average food. The starters of carpaccio and cypress were very cold no doubt taken straight from the fridge and thus rather tasteless. The seafood pasta dishes were both spoiled by glutinous and sweet tomato sauce. Apart from us there were only four other diners... More

Foreign waiters (Pravda, 21), great terrace, fresh fish, and authentic bold food and big servings makes it all feel like a mediterranean restaurant somewhere in a mediterranean (until they bring you a bill, of course)

One of my favorite places in Moscow when I have a some extra cash (because it is really expensive) and want fresh fish. Very-very good service, one of the places when I give tips with a lot of pleasure! Once saw here mr. Kudrin (ex-minister of finance). Really good place, can recommend it if you are ready to pay 80-100... More

Great seafood restaurant chain run by Serbs. These restaurants are the best of their kind in Moscow for sure.

Serbians have been running this chain for a long time. Restaurants are just perfect! Trust me, I tried many fish places and this is the best in Moscow. Do not expect something upscale, but... The food is fantastic: fresh mideterranian fish and seafood (clams, vongole, octopus, calamari...). I give you guys a sample of a smart order: fish soup, tuna... More
