“Extremely Special”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Fabulous, An incredible experience of gastronomic proportion. This restaurant gorgeous,romantic and the food to die for. Service was impeccable and very European as was to be expected. Beautiful room and lighting and the art work exquisite!. If ever in Moscow it is a must. Quite expensive to say the least but something! something! as my father would say. Very special.

“Beautiful venue”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

The dining room at Cafe Bolshoi is beautiful. The service is impeccable, the food is decent, not great. The white wine we ordered was served warm, which seems to be quite common throughout Moscow when we were there, as was the mineral water. But a good experience at a convenient location.

“Fantastic Russian Food”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Absolutely brilliant.....the service, the atmosphere and of course, the food, all great...I am quite fussy when it comes to eating out but praise when it is due, this was really a highlight of my visit to Russia...not cheap, but worth it...they even have a free limo transfer back to local hotels...ten out of ten:)

“Very bad impression!!!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

The Restaurant is very nice.Very nice location and very good service.
The food is horrible.

My wife and me arranged a birthday dinner about a week ago.
We had very good service but food is not the best.

We love white truffles we had foie gras stuffed anjou pigeon with truffles,it was very bad because
Truffles were cooked so they lost the flavour and the smell.


The salmon tartar we had nothing special,risotto with vegetables really anonymous..if you think that this restaurant must be one of the best in Moskow.
NEVER AGAIN!!

“Food ok, but mortgage your house if you want wine”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Ate here as an anniversary treat. Lovely service, very elegant surroundings and decent menu. We opted for the set menu which included a glass of wine (having feinted when we saw the prices for a bottle - nothing under £100!!!). Service was good, if a little hurried, but the waiter reminding us that service wasn't included at the end felt a little "in your face".

Actual meal was ok, but expensive for what is was.

You pay for the atmosphere and the service here.
