“Russian Atmosphere dining experience just off Red square”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

The Red Tower Restaurant location 55°45'24.09"N 37°37'11.83"E is just off red square and is set in an od part of the Kremlin walled tower complex. The Restaurant is designed in traditional Russian style with red brick walls, large Wooden tables and artifacts and historical weapons ion the walls. The food is traditional Russian food and is very good. I was there with a larger group of people and I believe this is an ideal Tourist group or Business group restaurant for evening dining after a visit to Red square. Not sure I would go back privately as there are much better places to choose from.

“Excellent examples of Russian Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

We wanted to go somewhere to taste true Russian food on our first visit. The restaurant is a little touristy, but the food was lovely. Try the Kvas!

“Perfect fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Nice restaurant "a la Russe" - not authentic, but close to this... Try salmon in creamer sauce with red and black caviar - it was nice! Good starters and apetizers for vodka. Nice location - right in the centre across Bolshoi theatre. Prices are high (as in all restaurants in Moscow centre...).

What can we say! Moscou smells and feels history all over! It s really a shame that they do not seem to interest in sharing all that rich patrimony!

“Good entree, great herring”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

The restaurant has a great location, with reasonable prices. It is somewhat kitsch. The entree was very good, but the pickled herring was the best I've ever had.
