The title says it all really. Maybe their regular menu is fine. Maybe the travel company did not pay enough. Maybe something else. Maybe not. I can only judge from personal experience. We had one day in Moscow before starting our journey on the Trans-Mongolian...More

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.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as

Maybe it is so. I recommend other visitors of Godunov asking for a manager each time there is a problem. Sometimes waiters have to be kept at check, so to speak. ))) I see a somewhat low rating of 3.5, although i havent read... More
