The meat comes to you over a small grilling plate so you could continue grilling your steak right on the table. When it comes to steaks, the grade of the meat is what makes it or breaks it, these guys are making it easy for...More

El Gaucho was the first place in Moscow where I tryied Angus beef many years ago. At that time it was definatley the best meat in town. Today's visit was more a dissappointment. The atmosphere and service remained on very high level but the meat...More

I love this place! Moscow isn't the food capital of the world but this restaurant is definitely not too bad. While meat is not imported from Argentina anymore and now it's all Russian, most steaks are still very good. Wine selection is small but smart...More

We had a business lunch for a company of 24 people. All was in a very bad level...service (very slow and no attention to requests), cooking (no one was happy with steakes). Don't recommend this place.

We went there as a big group and things went wrong from the start. First, they sat us at a table that could barely fit 3/4 of the group. We were subsequently moved but we had to carry the wine that was poured by then...More

This is my 2nd time in this place. Although they carry the similar name with london chain ambiance and decoration is very different. Finding an english speaking waiter is also very hard but ordering via ipad and seeing pictures and translations are easing the process....More

Steaks are of highest quality (raw meat is brought to your table for choosing), wines are of high quality too, as well as the service. But the prices are also high - understandable 'cause meat and wines are brought from Argentina. Worth a try and...More

It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street
the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one
direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in
Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian
restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life
with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like
visiting during the times when it was a medieval
Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th
