“view”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Here you pay only for the view. Dishes are average. I think a cocktail is more than enough to enjoy the site so think before you go.

“City view from hidden restaurant”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

May be, the best city view. To reach this hidden restaurant is not an easy task, if you don't speak Russian. Wine list is poor, but they have good choice of Champaign.

“must-visit to take a look around at a tasty table”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Astonishing view, impressive old-time soviet sky-scraper (Academy of Science), great food (though not quite the cheapest option in town)
Definitely better for summer-time visits

“Fantastic views, great food”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Until recently, the place boasted the best view of Moscow ever (now the "best view" title goes to Karlsson), but the quality of food is a match. Been there many times, and increasingly for the food lately - it is a unique combination of European and Asian fusion. The restaurant is located in the headquarters of the Russian Academy of Sciences, a building which is an architectural marvel in itself (built by a group of prominent architects over more than 20 years, using the infamous Carrara marbel, with the design of the “Golden Brains” proposed by then-President of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR), and you should arrive before the sunset in order to fully appreciate its beauty. The service can be slow sometimes, and the place is definitely pricey, but it is worth every cent of it.
In the summer, ask to be seated on the terrace with lounge chairs, in the winter - on the "podium" - the raised part in the middle on both North (city center view) and South (Moscow State University view) sides, directly next to the windows. Start with their signature cocktails (they change every season), then go for Thai Roll for starter, and foie gras and truffle pasta for main course. On your way out, make sure to walk around the patio to take the last glimpse of the City (a bunch of skyscrapers) at night.

“the view to die for”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

If you are visiting Moscow and want to see it from bird's flight view, or just a local wishing to fly high away from the busy streets, choose this location. The place is located on the top floor of the famous 'golden brain' building belonging to the Russian Academy of Science, which will give you some cool Soviet-and-scientific flair on your way through the former 'security point' to the lift and up to your table. The 360 degree view lets you see the building of the University of Moscow and many other famous landmarks, and best enjoyed if you come quite on time to watch the sunset. The service is not the strong part of the experience, and the prices are quite high, but your palate will be as pleased as your eyes.
