“Great dinner”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Ate here with a couple of colleagues.
We sat outside.
It wasn't busy but service was good which is a rarity in Russia.
We ordered starters and mains and all were very good.
Quite a wide selection, we all had different things and they were all good.
Reasonably priced for the quality of food and this was easily our best meal in Moscow.
Worth a visit if you're in Moscow.

“Delish!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were not dissapointed. Although the prices are a little steep for the locals, they're ok if you can compare them to the US or Europe. The food was exceptionally good and hearty; great selection of beers. Perfect place to eat if you're traveling with children or want to have a romantic dinner.

“Business lunch”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I visited the restaurant during a business lunch. The choice of three salads, three soups, two hot meals and 3 drinks. Everything is very fresh, well-decorated and quickly served. Price of 350 rubles (11 dollars). For an additional 30 rubles ($ 1) you can order dessert. I recommend this place.

“Lovely ambience”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We looked forward to dining in Kitezh and we were not disappointed. We were staying in an apartment on Tverskoy Bul’var, a few minutes walk from Tverskaya metro, so we had a lovely stroll along the boulevard to the restaurant.

Set in a stone basement, we were very impressed with the splendid wooden and stone features, some of which we were told are original.

We were given a warm welcome and the service was friendly, unhurried and attentive without being intrusive.

For starters we had dumplings with potatoes, mushrooms, fried onion and pancakes with salmon. For mains we went for the beaf steak in old Slavonic style with pickles, baked potatoes and the lamb with vegetables. Both were excellent.

We highly recommend Kitezh for a great Russian meal in lovely surroundings.

“Consistent quality”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

I had a lunch there last weekend, 6 years since I lived in Moscow and ate their last time. Impressed that the food and atmosphere remain consistently good. Often not the case in Moscow where stars lit up and burn very quickly... Its quite atmopheric, but not over the top, actually by Russian standard very simple so you don't get tired. Quite as well, which I needed after a walk across the every chaotic Red Square. Yes the service is good and so is the food (good selection of Russian classic with slight emphasis on more traditional stuff- plenty of bliny, kholodets, kvas, etc). The neighborhood is great as its within 15 min radius from all the major hotels on Petrovka and Tverskaya..Just to top it all, there is convent across the street. The only thing is that the patio/terrace is being renovated, so all the seating is inside, but its probably a matter of a week or two for it to be back in operation (the spring came later than usual this year)
