Our waiter, who lived in the Netherlands for a couple of years, spoke a perfect english and helped us for our choice in the menu.

Restaurant is situated in a nice location, interior is very welcoming. Very popular and busy place. However the food is very average. Desserts are not good at all. 4-5 years ago menu and food quality was much better.

During an 8-day working / teaching visit to Russia earlier this month my business partner and I had a day free in Moscow. After walking around the Kremlin we were returning to our hotel in the late afternoon (around 5:30 pm) when we came across this "Bolshoi by Novikov" restaurant, sort of behind the Bolshoi theater complex. We sauntered in... More

Very nice restaurant, close to the famous theatre. If you have attended the performance in the theatre, you can get 10% discount on you bill. The atmosphere is quite sophisticated from the start to the end, with an impressive dessert desk visible at the entrance in the main room, which seems telling you "keep some space for the end". Very... More

We organized a dinner for the group of international top managers (20+ people). Location is very downtown, behind the Bolshoi Theatre, interior classic high end polished, super food, wide wine list, professional service - great experience. Restaurant manager Mikhail was intuitive, patient and instrumental in organizing our event.

A very elegant restaurant in Moscow downtown. Excellent kitchen with superior service. Good choice of dishes and relevant wine list (very tasty russian wine). A place where to go if you want to feel the "new russian" atmosphere at the "new russian" price list

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighbourhood Profile
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
