Why locals love it

This place is a great example of Soviet time chic. Dr. Zhivago is a grand cafe which proves that Russian cuisine becomes modern and the purely Russian concept appears to be surprisingly fashionable and stylish. Moreover, it is a great place to have affordable luxury dinner with the Kremlin view in an historical site of the National Hotel.

Why you should visit it

Here, you will be sitting on the ground floor of the legendary Hotel Nacional with the Kremlin view. The white hall of the restaurant welcomes guests with the paintings of the most famous Soviet artists such as Malevich and Petrov-Vodkin, and the legendary Ruby Star crowns the gold ceiling. Prices in a menu are quite affordable here.

Special tip

Here you can try true Russian breakfasts.
Pay attention to the prices for alcohol drinks.
