The spacious terraces surrounded by greenery and trees in Moscow are worth their weight in gold – not all restaurants can boast of such a valuable commodity. We are talking about those places that you have to hide this summer from the heat, the hustle and bustle of the big city.
In summer, a large terrace is built in the courtyard of the Rossini restaurant on Povarskaya Street in the shade of the trees – a rare opportunity to spend time in silence while you are almost in the city center. The holiday atmosphere is provided not only by a flower garden, but also by Italian cuisine, which guarantees that it will create a sense of summer and vacation in the Mediterranean Sea: get penne with shrimp and peanuts (890 rub).

The terrace of the restaurant of the Central House of Writers is one of the quietest and most peaceful in Moscow. No noise of the capital, no big traffic, no other fuss from which you want to hide for at least one night. In comfortable round tables surrounded by flowers, it is nice to meet close friends or have family dinners without being limited by the tight fit. In the evenings, live music plays on the terrace of the mansion – another reason to dine in a historic place loved so much by poets Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Bella Akhmadulina.

In one of the most pleasant streets of Moscow, Tretyakovskiy Proyezd, the terrace of Wine & Crab is traditionally installed, generously furnished with hydrangeas (by the way, the most expensive flowers for summer decoration).

In Regent, at the beginning of June, opened a summer terrace, hidden from prying eyes by the lush vegetation of the front garden.

The Riviera restaurant has two terraces, but we recommend booking a table on the second-floor balcony: the open-air summer area is surrounded by tall green arbutus, climbing ivy and flowers. As planned, it should create the impression of a beach holiday in both countries at the same time – in both Abkhazia and Italy, as the cuisine of these two countries is miraculously combined in the restaurant menu.
