Empty restaurant. Service in english. Near the red square and kremlin. Tasty meal. Surprised at the end when we discover that the water price was equal to the main course.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as

It could be reaaly wonderful. But go there and book in advance. I would say 40 to 50 dollars per head. Some enlish skopen , so best to organize ahead. They have a nice room for groups.
