Mediterranean and French cuisines. Wide wine selection. More expensive (average meal is $80-100). Noon – latest customer.
A Mediterranean villa in the heart of Moscow. Can this be possible? Well, if you close your eyes, use a little bit of imagination and fantasize about Mediterranean Sea than you can easily find yourself in a luxurious palace named Villa. The art-deco style is implied everywhere: in light furniture and golden ceiling ornament, in strict angular fireplace and graceful piano. Cream-beige colors perfectly match mosaic and red lights create a magic deja-vu effect. Time stops at the Mediterranean villa and dissolves in romantic feeling brought by the twilight and peaceful light music. Unfortunately, the sea cannot be seen out of big show windows. The restaurant is expensive but prices do not always mean that food is delicious and original. Good quality ingredients, interesting combinations, no complains for a chef however cuisine is too monotonous. Many restaurants in Moscow offer similar menu and I was hoping to try something extra special in a special villa.
