Great music, fantastic scene and view from 21st floor. And main thing they serve excellent sushi, yellow tale was fantastic and superb. Prices are bit high, even for Moscow.

Food is very European and not bad at all. Nothing amazing though. The place itself is amazing with a fantastic view over the city Very trendy place...with fairly high prices. Service is very good. Most of the waitresses speak English

Would be back to this place again only for the panoramic view. Food is quite tasteless and definitely overpriced.

Great food, great drinks, killer view. We went on a Wednesday night, without a reservation - staff immediately found us a great table as we wanted on the outside terrace. I would definately recommend Kalina!

My family and I arrived Sunday evening when the restaurant was almost empty. Needless to say we were seated immediately at a table with an excellent view. The menu which is a mix of Italian, Russian and Sushi had something for everyone. Service was courteous and efficient in typical Russian fashion. We got smiles from the waitress when my daughters...

Reservation policy is horrible, specify that you want a view when you book there are cheaper and better rooftops in Moscow !

Like some other on here, we also became victims of their ridiculous/nonexistent reservations policy. I should probably preface this by saying that we were a group of six, all well-dressed and neither drunk nor loud. Some in these groups were friends from out of town, so we wanted to show them the view. We had been there once before, and... More

The view itself from this place is worth of a visit... Moscow city center on your feet!!!! I didn't expect such a beauty from Lotte plaza. Cocktails are gorgeous I suggest (because I love them) the vodka cocktails, among others very appreciated the Mango!! Prices reasonable considering the location. Staff very friendly, restaurant menu interesting, will try for sure next... More

Bar has a nice terrace with a great view, but that's it. When we arrived, we were received by a girl from a staff with a not really appropriate outfit. The bar was almost empty, but we were seated at probably the worst place in a bar with no view. When we asked if it possible to move to terrace,... More

Staying in Arbat

Neighbourhood Profile
Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds and turn to the side streets and boulevards where calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
