Food is OK, but expensive. No vine , only beer. In Moscow with so many choices this place survives only because of their location. Waiters are mostly yesterday's high school kids, ours didn't speak any English and completely screw order. Table wasn't waited and used,...More

Well prepared Swedish basic food. Prices are ok. Great Skagen toast and loerom on Raaraka. Surely other dishes are fine as well. The place itself may need a bit of a fresh up.

Nice place, but not really scandinavian. The only thing that make this place scandinavian is the beer and the solomon. Typically non smiling service, but nice and relaxed place to sit outside.

Moscow's First Scandinavian Restaurant Scandinavia restaurant opened its doors in 1995 just a stone through away from the city center next to Tverskaya metro station. Long before Scandinavian cuisine turned into a hot trend worldwide, we treated our guests to such mysterious dishes as gravlax and skagen. Both are still on the menu. For many years our goal was to introduce Moscow and its spoiled restaurant goers to finest culinary inventions Scandinavian countries have to offer. Scandinavia restaurant is famous for classic Nordic dishes as well as modern Scandic cuisine with a little Swedish accent. Our restaurant was the first one to bring to Moscow legendary Swedish meatballs with cowberry jam, rist to open a summer caf? and first to serve burgers! Not to mention that we made Muscowites fell in love with herring, aquavit and Swedish Christmas table. Located in the city center, famous Pushkinskaya Ploschad is only 50 meters away, with creative food made following finest European quality standards, English-speaking staff and friendly atmosphere, Scandinavia is a great solution for a business lunch, presentation, business meeting of any level and a celebratory dinner, as well as romantic supper or a party with colleagues.
