Cafe Pushkin comes highly recommended by many of our visitors.
Housed in a Baroque mansion on Tverskoy Boulevard, Café Pushkin is one of the most beautiful and romantic places to dine in Moscow. Although established in 1999, the legendary restaurant seems to have been there for decades, and stepping inside is like traveling back to a time when Moscow’s high society took leisurely strolls along the promenade, and noblemen from all over Europe gathered here over meals to discuss money and politics.
There are 4 distinct areas inside, each with its own fabulous décor and atmosphere. The Pharmacy Hall pays tribute to its former incarnation with a host of original features and collector’s items; the intimate Fireplace Hall invites guests to dine in grand style beneath a gorgeous ornate ceiling depicting the Winged Goddess of Victory, Nike; and the Summer Terrace looks over the iconic gold onion-domes of Moscow.
Café Pushkin’s most spectacular dining rooms, however, are The Library and The Mezzanine, two Baroque-style halls adorned with precious antiques and floor-to-ceiling bookcases teeming with world-class literature, scientific works, and political periodicals.
Café Pushkin accepts your provisional table reservations up to 8 p.m. After 8 p.m., you can arrive without reservations. This can sometimes occasion a short wait in our bar area until a table comes free. There is a dress code though, no sportswears in the Library Hall!
