We enjoyed a lovely quiet lunch here mainly because I love Pushkin's work and that's one of the reasons it's a well known restaurant.
The staff were friendly and the food really nice. However, I think for the prices it charges in context of Russian prices (in fact equivalent or higher than Western Europe), they could have included such things as bread, water and sour cream (smetana) as part of the meal.
I find it odd (it seems to be common in Russia though) that they charge you extra for bread when most European restaurants of the same price range would give you some fancy bread/butter before you meal for free as well as bring a jug of iced water to the table.
It's ok for a McDonald's to charge 20c for a ketchup (for example), I wouldn't expect that off a higher end restaurant though.
