Anyway, I did try the deep fried spinach balls with cream sauce, which were delicious, amybe I can become a full-time vegetarian one day! The fusilli pasta with sun-dried tomatoes and crushed walnuts was a bit dry, but it was... More

Came here for lunch on a rainy day. I've been to plenty of vegetarian restaurants n this might be the first one I was disappointed with. I had the business lunch. Maybe I just ordered the wrong meal. But the soup n entree were too oily. Wouldn't bother returning here.

The food here was good and very hearty - a great option for vegetarians. Lots of good variety in the menu and the drink options were also creative. However, a bit difficult to visit as tourists as the staff are not very familiar with English. But overall, worth visiting for the food.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I like vegan food sometimes. Avocado is a good place to try new tastes & eat dishes of decent quality. But in terms of interior improvement is needed to my mind: worn-out & oldish... Not cosy. I came to eat, not to spend good time.

Prime location. Wide choice of food for vegetarians and vegans. Might be considered as a bit pricy. I did not quite like their version of vegan lasagna, but the rest was ok.

Nice, tasty, fast, wide variety of dishes. Some points in menu are raw, some can be prepared raw manner. Lots of fresh drinks, good desserts, some season proposals. Access by metro Turgenevskaya/Chistye Prudy and 10 min walk along the boulevard. Chargeable parking in front of the cafe. Cards accepted. Recommend to friends and will come again ourselves.

Yes, to have the rawfood / vegetarian menus in russian restaurants is a bless and unique experiment. Avocado was one of the first. They have an enormous variety of dishes and food is coming pretty quickly, but all the dishes are made with lots of salt and most of them are with oil / deep-fried. The idea of healthy restaurant...
