Spectacular views. Oysters are good, but the food did not deliver. Had the Cow tongue pastrami salad. It was served with a raw avocado and the slices of tongue was 3-4mm and dry. Followed by a decent beef tartar. A sad dish of lamb chops with disharmonious purees, and ending on a weird potato mash with rabbit tongue. Really blend... More

Was a bit sceptical having read some mediocre reviews on here but went in hoping to be surprised. I was not. The menu is huge and caters for a large dining room, so I'd imagine the kitchen is very busy. But that's no excuse for the poorly executed dishes I sampled. I tried the lamb for my main, it had...

This is an amazingly interesting restaurant surrounded by mystique even as you approach it, with multiple escalators to get to the top. Amazing cuisine and great views of Moscow

We went on a Tuesday evening together with a colleague and it was a very special experience. The setting, the view, but most importantly the food was gorgeous. I wanted to order everything on the menu – it was very difficult to make a choice! The only minus are the girls in the reception, a bit arrogant attitude. The service... More

Well worth a visit. We had the tasting menu which was based on old Russian recipes, traditional and rare ingredients (including swan liver in a four gras style dish with apples or elk tongue) and modern culinary thoughts and techniques. Very interesting and unique. The restaurant is under a glass cupola and has a great view over Moscow - we... More

Quite good food in an excellent atmorphere, I love the afternoon relaxing teatime, when you are nearly alone, lost in comfy sofas,with such beautiful panoramic view.... Then comes the busier dinner time, with a totally different ambiance, classy or business noisy, I always start inquiring about the home icecream specialty, foamy, textured, cut like a piece of cake, Then I...

Ask for a table on the top floor with a view - stunning! The food is very good, but not consistently excellent. Some dishes are superb, others a little flat. But, hey, with the weak Ruble right now, for foreigners this is an amazing dining experience and incredible value for money... just the wines (as they are obviously imported) are... More

If you are not on a tight budget then this is a must see in Moscow. The kitchen is quite advanced and very good, but I had better. If you want to experience "Oligarch" lifestyle in the "Oligarch" country than you will have to go there.

Staying in Arbat

Neighbourhood Profile
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds and turn to the side streets and boulevards where calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
