Now replaced with a fancy "I like bar" restaurant....
Meal was unexpectedly good, stuff very frendly.
Price is very reasonable.
Also you can have a pape (from $21)
Wi Fi - free
Favorite Dish: Recomended!
Formally a pub, provides all dishes accompanying pint of beer, especially fish. Vobla is dried salted species of fish, perhaps the most popular beer snack. Howewer I eat it with orange juice.
Dim light, basement stationing, hostess, enough spare seats.
I don't drink beer so ordered trout and Cola. Service was fast and precise. My friends and I enjoyed celebration of finishing their 4th year. Most impressive of our order was emerald beer.
You can check dishes' variety, prices, adresses (3 other places, Pokrovka also) on their website. Use Google Chrome service for english translation.
Favorite Dish: Trout on coals, hot and spicy. 13$ nowadays.
Stariki bar was opened in the spring of 2011 in an ancient Moscow building in Bolshaya Lubyanka street. In the XIX century there was a Tryndiny’s trading firm, famous all round Russia. In the 1904 it was organized a public astronomic observatory on the roof of the building. Under the observatory there was a lecture room, reading room with the latest novelties in the field of astronomical sciences and museum that kept, for example, early types of telephones and the first phonographs.
June 20, 1924 at the observatory took place the first meeting of the first in the world Society for Studies of Interplanetary Travel, the member of which was Friedrich Zander, who was working out a jet engine, and Konstantin Tsiolkovsky who was an honorary member.
Today, sitting here in a comfortable sofa with your eyes closed, you can imagine for a minute sounds of Preobrazhensky march and hear toasts to the health of the Emperor and a prosperity of Tryndiny’s industrial firm. Then you can return to a modern, two-level place to have a coffee break or an appetizing supper, to play bridge, drink a cocktail at the bar o listen to the live club jazz. And all this take place at 13, Bolshaya Lubyanka street, where today is situated the Bar Stariki.
You can also find here costume party and jazz evenings as well as concerts of foreign artists that were popular in the ’90 and ’00.
Stariki bar is a unique for its great games collection, that includes both simple games like Scrubble and Mafia and more complicated ones like Go and Genium no Limit (from Maxim Patashev).
Since October 2011 lessons of open kitchen Meet&Greet take place in the bar several times a week and every Sunday is opened a Kids studio.
And the most important thing is that Stariki bar – it’s really tasty! You can hold business talks here and close a deal of the century during business-lunch, or organize a family celebration. For such cases there are private rooms in the bar – a big room for 40 persons and a small one for 8 persons.
The chief cook Anton Bannikov surprises every month with special offers– from Thai dishes to lenten menu. Inventive cuisine, in a so called “new cuisine” style, can leave in the dust most of moscow restaurants. There are really fair portions and farm products. In the evenings it’s nice to seat at the bar tasting something new from the dainty cocktail list.
The «Vienna cafe» is to be found at Domodedovo Airport’s International departure lounge in what they call a "clean zone" (neutral territory) after passport control.
After passport control go towards boarding gates 16-22 and then up the escalator to the 2nd floor.
They operate a 24 hour service.
The menu was quite interesting and service very good - however they seem to be doing some maintenance work, and some of the fixed seating is being repaired.
Young staff, quite a lot of energy.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the vegetable bouquet and European Sausages!
All we know, who comes to Moscow, that there are plenty of luxury places with good music and, sometimes, even good food. But for me there's one thing - atmosphere!
I'm in love with New York and in Nooning i felt, like i'm home again.
This loft style place is so lively and hip and I got why, when it discovered, that it was made by a london team, and now this fun and creative guys are my friends!
Menu, cocktails, music - perfect!
So if you come to visit Moscow this place is definetly - NEED TO GO!
Favorite Dish: Maracuja mousse with mango and coconut!!!
why it's good??? just come and try!
I know it's foolish to go all the way to Russia (from the USA) and want to have something I can get anytime back home, but after weeks of traveling, sometimes it's nice to see a familiar place.
The coffee here tastes the same as any Starbucks back home.
Favorite Dish: Caramel Macchiato
Rambling layout with balconies, beer and a dance floor with a stage. It's not cheap but it's not expensive. The service is typical Moscow: no smile no follow up.
But the locals are not stuffy.
Favorite Dish: The duck was good. The quesadilla was bland as was the salsa that went with it.
If you've spent any time in Moscow you'll probably have noticed that a) everything is very expensive and b) getting even the most minor thing done can be a chore.
This cosy little bar/restaurant is a welcome break from all that.
About 5 minutes walk from Red Square and Tverskaya, you'd hardly notice this place unless one of the funny amateur portraits outside catches your eye. Inside, it's pretty unassuming. Just find yourself a table, order some of the simple but delicious bar snacks (pork, chicken, salmon, buckwheat, freshly baked russian bread, pickled cabbage), get a cheap beer and you could spend all night in this lovely little place.
Boho types and students chat with each other over drinks, the bar staff are friendly and speak just enough English to get you by. This place is also a welcome break from bad Russian fashions, burgundy-dyed hair and billionaire extravagance.
Kamergersky Lane - it's a really nice european styled lane only 10 min by walk from Kremlin, between Tverskaya st. and Bolshaja Dmitrovka st. This lane is only around 200 meters long but have plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants for any taste and budget:
Snackbar "5 zvezd" - sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts, beverages, sushi (by the way their sushi are really very tasty!!!), small prices
Snackbar "Prime time" - all the same but not so tasty IMHO
Coffee house "Zen coffee" - i like their pancakes much))).
Coffee house "vatrushka" - i don't like it all: place has no concept, pink walls and plastic chairs, completely empty huge windows, all the desserts are like made from rubber
"Posh" cafe - name says for itself
Self service restaurant "Seno" - russian cuisine, very cheap
Italian restaurant "Gusto" - nice cozy place, reasonable prices
Italian cafe "Pinnocio"
French cafe "Cafe Des Artistes" - expensive, tasty, cozy
Cafe-pizzeria "Academia" - ordinary food, normal prices
Restaurant "Cebab city" - normal prices, arabian + japanese cuisine (japanese is really good, arabian one i didn't try)
There seems to be dozens of these all over Moscow. I used two different ones.
They offer a range of coffees, teas, hot beverages and cakes to go with them.
They also offer sandwiches and other light bites.
Favorite Dish: The range of cheese and yoghurt cakes.
Apparently the hot chocolate is a must have for chocolate lovers.
I rate the mocha quite highly as well.
nice place if you want to have a couple of drinks and eat some russian food, mostly kind of popular in soviet times (pelmeni, kotlety...) nice especially in summer, cause they have openair veranda, but when it's cold you can sit inside and enjoy the same. stuff is also nice and welcoming, prices are reasonable. me and my friends were watching European Cup final there, they had a huge screen outdoors so we could enjoy at full Zidane sent off:)
but the bartender was the best this day..he was asking everyone the same question: "are you supporting France?" (i think he did!), if the answer was "i'm supporting italy"..he was saying: "i hate you, but just because i'm in a good mood today..you will get your drink..."
sometimes you can also listen there to live music, russian and international, rock, jazz, ethno...
This well located cafe has fresh French pasteries. It's a self-service place with a non-smoking section when you enter. It also carries the free newspapers The Moscow Times as well as a German and a French one, which comes in handy.
You enter the cafe through the entry of the concert hall.
Toilets are located outside the cafe diagonally across the entry hall in the back corner. They are free of charge.
A good place to meet fellow VTers, easy to find. They have a wide range of different coffes, but you can also drink tea or have a soft drink. There are also pastries, gateaux and sandwiches available. Self-service. Staff speak some English.
They stock free newspapers in English, Russian and German. There is also an ATM machine and a toilet.
What can I say about Flocafe
After a busy morning shopping and trafffic and you need that jump start to finish off the day or you would like a light lunch. This place is it, from coffee to dessert that make you mouth water.
Favorite Dish: Good servise, nice place
Imagine a place which is like Starbucks but where the focus is on chocolate rather than coffee - Shokoladnitsa is just that! Prior to going round the Tretyakov, we popped into the outlet just around the corner from the Tretyakov on Klimentovskuu pereulok and enjoyed a hot chocolate - my drinking chocolate was so thick it was practically solid - and very good it was too. There was also a breakfast option, although we didn't take advantage of this - choosing to have a bit of brownie. The décor was slightly incongruous with what we had expected - gorgeous leather armchairs and everything immaculate. Admittedly prices are slightly on the high side - I paid RUB 120 for a hot chocolate, which is more expensive than elsewhere, but it was a very enjoyable experience.
Favorite Dish: I haven't eaten here but would recommend the hot chocolate.
