Restaurant is situated in a nice location, interior is very welcoming. Very popular and busy place. However the food is very average. Desserts are not good at all. 4-5 years ago menu and food quality was much better.

We organized a dinner for the group of international top managers (20+ people). Location is very downtown, behind the Bolshoi Theatre, interior classic high end polished, super food, wide wine list, professional service - great experience. Restaurant manager Mikhail was intuitive, patient and instrumental in organizing our event.

A very elegant restaurant in Moscow downtown. Excellent kitchen with superior service. Good choice of dishes and relevant wine list (very tasty russian wine). A place where to go if you want to feel the "new russian" atmosphere at the "new russian" price list

Very Moscow style, show off restaurant but with a beautiful decorum and outstanding contemporary art on the walls. The menu is a very good mix of revisited international dishes and modern versions of traditional russian meals. We went for the latter and had one of the best pelemeni ever, with paper thin dough and delicious filling; very good set of... More

We enjoyed an extra marvelous evening,enjoying the bale and the excellent performance, the Bolshoi theater was founded by both Peter Ouroussov and Mikhail Medoks around 1776, but the existing theater was built around 1825 .

Thought the food was excellent, service very good too, they really tried to be helpful explaining the Russian cocktails, recommending side dishes, etc. Prices very reasonable for this quality of cuisine, decor & location. Can definitely recommend the caviar sampler. The 5 kinds of caviar are served on oyster shells on a bed of ice. Beautiful presentation and very delicious!

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighbourhood Profile
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
