Glavpigtorg is nicely located in the heart of Moscow. The interior is fairly nice and warm. Those were simply the positive points from our visit. The service is cold and slow. The menu promises more than what turned out to be the outcome from the kitchen. Our group of 5 persons had 3 courses meals, and the quality of food... More

Our business partner took us to this place for dinner after a hectic day. My international colleagues were interested to experience the authentic atmosphere of a soviet-style restaurant and they really enjoyed it! The food is delicious - from starters to the dessert! Portions are large, everything is so tasty! Huge selection of beers... Highly recommend pork kebab and Napoleon... More

Was invited for dinner at this for me new place. Regular Russian interior downstairs, but upper floor very special like a library or classic office, where you sit in between old bookshelves and other classic furniture. In this way you can have very private dinner. We drank beer, good choice of drafts, I had Pilsner Urquel. Food is mostly Russian,... More

This place was a riot to visit! Housed in an old Ministry of Transport building, there is a band on the lower floor with dancing and an upper level called "the library" that is sectioned off by walls of bookshelves. We ate in the library which I would recommend if you want to talk with your companions. Otherwise sit on... More

Despite remembering Soviet times the place is for me really unusual. First of all that kind of places in soviet times required position (or big money) & second during Gorbatshev era they were bit passe already. But this a classy place - good decor with lot of wood and period lamps, very attenative service (a big difference to soviet times),... More

Fantastic place for both those who feel nostalgic and those who want to feel 'how was it'. Live music, tasty food, good atmosphere. Disadvantages: a bit noisy. But it's worth that!

I loved the place and the food selection. A true Soviet spirit, with genuine sensations of USSR in the 70s and 80s, it is definitely a throw-back in time. The music was a bit loud as it is played live, so I recommend reserving a table in the section where there is no band playing. Food was great too!

...with a dinner at this totally schmaltzy 'throw-back' option near Red Square, decorated like a Soviet era ministry from the 50s. Up the block from the former headquaters of the KBG and the inrfamous Lubyanka prison, Glavpivtorg serves the Russian classics in an atmosphere from the set of Goldfinger. Choose a table in the library upstairs where you can dine... More
