Best terraces Moscow - Top 20

Life feels almost normal again in Moscow after Corona

From today onwards its finally allowed in Moscow to eat in restaurants again. Still with some restrictions, because the restaurants are only allowed to open their terraces for the time being, but with this great summer weather it is anyway best to sit outside.

Moscow is packed with terraces, but we only share our favorites in this list. Some have a lovely water view, some are in a quiet courtyard and some are on a lively street, but they all have a great setting and vibe.

If you're looking for a roof-deck with a nice view, check our "best roofdeck" blog:

20 - Prichal

If you're looking to have a relaxed dinner in a quiet nature setting, Prichal is the place to be. Only 30 minutes drive from the city you find this picturesque place on the river and across and among trees. The food is good, not outstanding, but try their fish, sushi, the mangal roasts and fish soup.
All in all a great "city escape" only 30 minutes drive from Moscow.
Location: Ilinskoye highway 2

19 - Medusa

This is a small Asian restaurant with delicious food, hidden in a courtyard on Red October. The terrace is small but really cozy, a bit quiet for a Saturday night, but perfect if you want to go afterwards to one of the bars or nightclubs nearby.
Location: Bersenevsky perelok 1 

18 - Remy

We like Remy a lot, especially in summer times, when you can sit outside and watch the hustle and bussle of Malaya Bronnaya street. The food is delicious, sometimes the service is rather slow, but overall a great restaurant to enjoy.
Location: Malaya Bronnaya 2

17 - Margarita Bistro

You wouldn't expect such a green gem on a corner of Tverskaya Ulitsa. But the terrace of "My fish" is a great place where you can enjoy very fresh seafood and good service. They also have a location on Tsvetnoy Bulvar. Perfect place for lunch.

Located in the most expensive alley of Moscow this is not a very low key place. But very tasty, cozy and calm. Fresh seafood, but do have a look at the prices as they can vary a lot! Perfect for a romantic dinner.

The quality of the food is very high and it's quite affordable. We had bad luck with the service though, but give them the benefit of the doubt. Inside it's pretty sterile, but the terrace is on a great spot in Teatralnya. Sunny & lively!
Location: Petrovka Ulitsa 30/7
