Quite disappointed. I visited this place a year ago, and at the time it served delicious traditional Russian food in a very charming decor. Now all the charm is gone, and they serve sushi and Indian food... Not bad but really not as good as it used to be. Service was slow and prices were quite high. But the site itself is still amazing, by a little pond in a garden.

I been at this restaurant a half years ago with my wife, and I liked the unusual menu. But a month ago the concept of the restaurant has been changed and it became like other restaurants in Moscow with good quality but not with original kitchen. All is tasty, but nothing more - tomorrow you will not remember what you ate. But it a good restaurant if you want to eat.

In the heart of Moscow, the Pavilion's terrace tables are absolutely at the water's edge, where ducks and swans have attracted mothers and children since pre revolutionary times, and the spirits of Bulgakov's Master and Margarita roam through the tree-lined paths. A great place to enjoy an after work, or evening cocktail or glass of prosecco as the sun sets and the very lively local evening social scene gathers pace. My experiences with the food have been hit and miss - nothing outstanding, but enjoyed hot and cold starters, like pirozhki or blinis. But the setting, especially in summer, makes up for this - spectacular for rendezvous with a loved one. Gets chilly when night falls, but blankets always provided....NB, the Pond becomes a skating rink in winter.

We came here because our hotel receptionist highly recommanded it.
Since he did never disappointed us, We decided to give it a try although this restaurant do not has the high score.
the place is located in a lake or a pond, very nice place and breathtaking, I suggested u wear extra clothes to come her as it's windy to seat outside. Food is amazing. The wild strawberry ice cream is best of the best and unforgettable. borsch soup is good , mushroom soup is even better ( not creamy stye) . We ordered cabbage rolled lamb shank, which i think s very nice, beef stroganoff is the second best in our whole Russia tour, Grilled fish is pricy and looks great but the taste is not amazing- if you are Asian, Don't order fish here. Because Asian make great steam fish. Only one staff can speak English here...

I am not saying that it is a bad restaurant, but as a high-class, the service should not be poor like that. While we were paying the bill, the waitress use one-hand to gap the check and money! When we leave the restaurant, no one say thank you and goodbye to us, and the most worst thing is that one of the waiters thought we did not pay the bill and rush to ask us to pay! This is one of the most unhappy experience here!

But the food is Ok, the vodka is nice. Except the meal and fantastic view, everything is poor.

食物很好, 但服務態度很差, 結了帳後服務員沒有say thank you, 甚至以為我們沒有結帳, 跑過來質問,態度令人反感。
