Glavpigtorg is nicely located in the heart of Moscow. The interior is fairly nice and warm. Those were simply the positive points from our visit. The service is cold and slow. The menu promises more than what turned out to be the outcome from the...More

Our business partner took us to this place for dinner after a hectic day. My international colleagues were interested to experience the authentic atmosphere of a soviet-style restaurant and they really enjoyed it! The food is delicious - from starters to the dessert! Portions are...More

Was invited for dinner at this for me new place. Regular Russian interior downstairs, but upper floor very special like a library or classic office, where you sit in between old bookshelves and other classic furniture. In this way you can have very private dinner....More

Fantastic place for both those who feel nostalgic and those who want to feel 'how was it'. Live music, tasty food, good atmosphere. Disadvantages: a bit noisy. But it's worth that!

I loved the place and the food selection. A true Soviet spirit, with genuine sensations of USSR in the 70s and 80s, it is definitely a throw-back in time. The music was a bit loud as it is played live, so I recommend reserving a...More

...with a dinner at this totally schmaltzy 'throw-back' option near Red Square, decorated like a Soviet era ministry from the 50s. Up the block from the former headquaters of the KBG and the inrfamous Lubyanka prison, Glavpivtorg serves the Russian classics in an atmosphere from...More
