I was part of a tour group, and our tour director had arranged a meal at Godunov! Great atmosphere, Great Service, and Super Great Food!

This is conveniently located in Red Square and has a really cosy atmosphere. Food is good and the inside decor is absolutely absorbing.

A nice small restaurant with interesting foods. Had beautiful (and “busy”) decoration inside, decent tables and chairs. With a warm feeling and well-mannered servers. A pleasant dinner. The most interesting one was beef stroganoff.

We need more than 4 hours for... More

Touristy place made in a shape of the chambers of 16th century. Average food, bad service, overpriced. I always try to avoid it since every visit was a huge dissapointment. This time we got cockroach in our bread. So think twice before you go there.

Recommended by a local to me as a representative of Russian food. However, it is a bite kitschy, and the service was rather slow. That said, I was quite satisfied with the bear stew I had there. And the atmosphere is rather memorable as well.

Very bad dinner, very simple food, we sat down at 22:00 with snacks already on the table, wine and champagne (Russian) bad and also bad hot Vodka. The second dish was served at 02:00... More

Food was nicely presented with nice flavoured dishes. You should try the horseradish vodka, delightful! The premises are interesting and worth a short visit to get great pictures! Well, if you have the opportunity, you should go and don't forget to book in advance...
