With the Rio Olympics soon coming to an end, the next mega event the world looks forward to is the world cup. Moscow will be the lucky city that will host the FIFA games in 2018, and the city is already under construction preparing themselves for the upcoming games.
Having recently visited Moscow for the first time, one of the things I enjoyed most about the city was exploring the stunning restaurants. The restaurants in Moscow all had beautiful settings, and great atmosphere; the set ups were similar to michelin star restaurants in London, but for only a fraction of the price! What could be better.
Below, are the restaurants that I enjoyed most when I visited Moscow, and would recommend to those who are planning a visit soon.
Bar Sixty was the restaurant I dined at the first night I arrived in Moscow. The interior of the restaurant was modern and chic, but the best part of the restaurant was definitely the panoramic view of Moscow that it offered. The cuisine offered at Bar Sixty can be considered "international"; you can find everything from steak tartare to some local Russian Cuisine.
White Rabbit is another restaurant in Moscow that offers some great panoramic views of the city. Here, you can even opt to dine at the terrace if weather permits; with that said, there is a minimum spend put in place if you decide to do so. The decor of the restaurant is absolutely stunning, and the food definitely doesn't disappoint either. It was voted number 18 of the top 50 restaurants in the world after all! The cuisine offered here would be considered modern Russian, and I would recommend getting the mini cabbage rolls as part of your main... White Rabbit was my favourite restaurant during my trip in Moscow, however, the service offered was probably also one of the worst... Perhaps that was just an one-off experience.
If you google where to eat in Moscow, there's no doubt that Cafe Pushkin will come up as one of the options, and there's definitely a reason for that. The restaurant dining room was so elegant and beautiful, I wanted to model the library of my future home exactly like it! With that said, if you're looking for something less formal, Cafe Pushkin also offers a more casual dining experience downstairs, but booking is recommended as the restaurant can get quite busy, especially in the evenings. The cuisine Cafe Pushkin offers is traditional Russian Cuisine.
After visiting Moscow, I realised London restaurants really have to step up their game when it comes to creating an atmosphere! La Maree was definitely one of the prettiest restaurants in Moscow. There's a terrace at the restaurant for those sunny days in Moscow, but the indoors dining area was just as gorgeous. In fact, this would be a great wedding venue. Although La Maree is a seafood restaurant, my partner ordered a lamb tagine dish, which was just as delicious.
