    Posh places: Café Pushkin

    by Muscovite Updated Apr 18, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place tries to look like a 19th century mansion which it unfortunately isn’t. The good honorable entrepreneurs had no hesitation about pulling down the real thing, the old building our national bard Alexander Pushkin could have actually visited once. Architects, historians and ordinary Muscovites protested – to no avail. Surely it is much easier to build from the scratch –cheaper, too, than to restore carefully the existing landmark and adapt it for contemporary use. If you read Russian, here is the link to the whole story
    http://www.archnadzor.ru/2008/01/09/pushkin-protiv-pushkina/

    I was there once, on the job. A film director came from London to discuss a new project with a very prominent Russian actor (he is a good one, indeed). It was one of Helen Mirren’s ‘Prime Suspect’ series, and our star was cast as a ‘bad Serb’. Little wonder I haven’t seen it run in Russia.
    This posh restaurant was chosen as the venue for negotiations. There was not much food on the table, I remember pancakes with caviar – sort of upper-class traditional Russian food.
    The interior was decorated as a library in a 19th century country estate, the service – I must do them justice – was pleasant and respectful.

    Consult the site for their current prices and do not forget about tipping – the celebrity left a 500 rubles’ note, at the time when my MONTHLY salary was 4500 rubles that made quite a sensation.

    Not-so-crowded café in Moscow

    by Muscovite Written Apr 18, 2014

    Got an errand from someone who is planning a VT meeting in Moscow; checked five cafés – all at the ‘Youth Place’ in Komsomolsky prospect 28, weekday, after-office hours, about 8 p.m.

    Starbucks
    That was my first choice, and I must admit an utter lack of judgment! I came in and went directly out – it was not only crowded, it was noisier than any crazy fast-food joint at its best!
    Well, in fact I did spend a couple of minutes there trying to survey the prices:
    Cappuccino – 210 to 240 roubles, carrot cake – 210 roubles; with the inflated rouble it makes about $12. Who can afford going there daily I have no idea.

    McDonald’s
    No free seats, just like Starbucks, but at least the crowd did not look that smug.
    http://mcdonalds.ru/

    Moo-moo
    Quite a few free tables, thanks to its spacious hall; mostly individual guest who mind their own business and their own food.

    Shokoladnitsa (La Belle Chocolatière)
    About a dozen tables altogether, no more than half taken. Friendly personnel – sure, they need some income. Fairly quiet – except haunting music.
    Cappuccino – 210 to 250 roubles
    Tea (it is supposed to be a Russian café chain, and we drink tea here!) – 190 to 270 roubles (tea-pot)

    Looks like a perfect place for football fans, I pass.

    We stopped in this cafe just on a side street just off tverskaya.
    It's got funky vibe, honest staff (the waiter told us not to order certain items as they were rubbish), and a nice place to chill. They do food although we didn't try any

    Jagannat: Vegeterian food in city center

    by AnnaHermans Written Aug 5, 2013

    In a new age atmosphere you can have a great choice of vegetarian food. The restaurant is close to the Bolsjoi theater. Most of the food is indian inspired, but they really have a lot to choose. You pick what you want while you walk along with a plate and pay only 8 euro for a big plate ful of food and ginger ale

    Favorite Dish: Ginger ale

    We stopped in here, 5 of us on my June13 trip, for lunch.
    Its more of a cafe than a restaurant but is a nice place, service not too bad for moscow and the prices not too bad.
    They do a lot of veggy and organic and vegan food.
    Our bill was around 2500 roubles for 5 with soft drinks.
    I had salmon and spinach pie which was great.

    Pavilon: Pavilon

    by littlebush Written Jun 12, 2013

    Located about 5mins off Tversakaya, near Pushinskaya, this restaurant is located next to a large pond which is a great setting to chill out.
    Inside it looks very posh with high ceilings and an old fasioned styled decor.
    The music is oldie.
    This is where the good times end.
    The service isnt so great and whilst the food was good, the portions were small and not great value for money.
    Between 5 of us, the bill was 8205 Roubles, but that did include some fish at 2255 roubles, which we didnt realise the price was per 100gram! This didnt include much alcohol either, just a 100ml vodka and 2 beers.
    The setting is lovely - i would recommend it but try to just stick to the cheaper items on the menu of which there are a few.
    I had small pie as a starer and chicken kiev as a main, which was quite bland.

    Puedes esperar que hagamos la recomendación de de un restaurante muy exclusivo y sofisticado, pero vamos a recomendar un sitio agradable y muy limpio donde tomamos unos kebabs deliciosos
    Como nos quedábamos en los hoteles de Izmailovo, encontramos esta tienda a mitad de camino entre los hoteles y la estación de Metro.
    Nos llevamos al hotel un pollo y unos kebabs estupendos que comimos en la habitación al final de un día muy largo y y nos parecieron excelentes

    You may expect the recommendation of a sophisticated or exclusive restaurant , but we will recomend a nice and clean place where we had very good kebabs ( The best )
    As we were staying in the Izmailovo hotels, we found this shop in the midway from the Metro to the hotels . We took away from here to the hotel, great chicken and kebabs to have dinner in the room at the end of a very long day and they were excellent

    Bericony: elegant restaurant

    by jorgejuansanchez Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the first floor there is a bar serving tea, coffee and beers, while in the second floor there is an elegant restaurant a little bit expensive but good Russian food.
    It is very conveniently located just in front of the Pushkin Museum, so many foreigners go there.

    Laff Cafe: pub and cafeteria

    by jorgejuansanchez Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a pub and cafeteria (although they also serve business lunch) very popular with foreigners or expats living in Moscow.
    You can just sit down and converse with friends or have a homemade pasta.
    The atmosphere is a fusion of Italian, Mediterranean and some Russian motive.
    They have an extense wine list.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a fantastic restaurant with show from Brazil, true carnival, with mulatas girls!
    Food is ok if you like meat, like the Argentinean asado. In Brazil is called rodizio. The chef is from Brazil.
    It is a funny restaurant to surprise your russian friends.
