Nice looking restaurant in a good place. Nice terrace at summertime. The food was very good and the price a bit high but the setting was nice and cosy. Inclusive menu. The home-made apple compot was very good. The service was excellent and also in english.

Thank Tukano

I had a couple of dinner at this posh and classy restaurant in Moscow downtown. Service is above the expectations and have also to say that even the food is great. Basically international cuisine with a pretty wide selection of western wines. NHice ambiance and nice people. Better booking in advance

I am traveling in Moscow and i was invited to Vanilla in the old part of Moscow. The cuisine is perfect, service is excellent. The design and atmosphere are fantastic. A little bit expensive but it worth it. Highly recommend

This is a modern restaurant with a range of mixed seating that gives it an eclectic feel. The ambience was very relaxed and the staff were friendly and helpful. The menu is international and good

i love that place even though you always have a feeling of doing something wrong, but i guess it is the way waiters are trained to behave: you get served perfectly while at the same time feeling snobbed :) nice young hipe crowd on a good day

Posh interior, high end restaurant. The food is good, but in my opinion not worth the money. Unless you're loaded and don't really care for price tags.

Excellent location. Good interior. Poor food and monstrous prices. For one plate of entree, salad, two cup of coffee and one small desert plus two glasses of ordinary Chilean wine I paid $250.00 USD. Amazing way to strip you ot of your money!

It is one of the best restaurants in Moscow, located near the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and Saviour's Cathedral. The food is delicious; you can hire one of the rooms for a private dinner.

The restaurant is situated in a place of highest real estate price and marketed not for tourists but rather for rich Russians. The view is great but the food is over priced and not tasty at all although very fresh and of good quality. The staff is atentive and expect good tips.
