White Rabbit - A Gem Among Rooftop Restaurants Moscow
Dinner with a View!

The 8 Best Rooftop Restaurants in Moscow 

1. White Rabbit – Russian Fine Dining All the Way to the White List

1. Food: 5

2. Drinks: 5

3. Atmosphere: 4

4. Design: 5

5. Service: 4

One of the best rooftop restaurants in Moscow, White Rabbit is co-owned by famous chef Vladimir Mukhin. The menu is upscale Russian plus international cuisine, and the wine list is exquisite!

The Best Table…

On a 16th floor, the massive oval window here is impressive, and you should ask for a table by the glass dome. Their outdoor terrace isn’t quite as beautiful.

The décor is Russian luxurious, so a little kitsch: broad, beautiful and with chaises emulating Saint Basil’s Cathedral’s colors. I love the design’s mix of traditional and modern! The White Rabbit is truly a one of a kind rooftop in Moscow!

One of the best rooftop restaurants in Moscow, Ruski, is located in a skyscraper in a Moscow City, on the 85th floor. It’s one of the coolest rooftop restaurants in Moscow, and I dare to say throughout Europe! The combination of design and the unmatchable view will leave you breathless. This place offers Russian luxury mixed with innovation. Ask for a private table, in a small lounge facing the windows.

Elegance and classy all in one

The food makes it one of the best restaurants in Moscow, mixing traditional Russian cuisine with other regional flavors. The pelmenis, blinis and beef stroganoff are all top notch and so is the service. 

Drop by the restaurant’s bar and try auteur cocktails, and some people-watching and if you are up for some Russian cold, a vodka or two in the ice bar is a must.

3. Sixty Rooftop Moscow – Party Among the Stars!

Magical City View from Sixty Rooftop Moscow
The most magic dinner view here with my oldest friend from Sweden!

Sixty offers another magical view among the best rooftop restaurants in Moscow.

Dark and stylish with contemporary furniture and natural elements, it’s far more relaxed than Ruski and a good place to start an evening out. Every hour, they open up the windows, providing perfect photo ops! The view offers Moscow City from one side and a magical sunset from the other. Hard to choose but I recommend to ask for a table at the Moscow side part.

The later it gets, the more magic appears!

The menu is international with a mix of dishes and the wine list is long. The quality of the food varies a bit but if I can highly recommend the wasabi shrimps, the tuna and why not end with a cinnamon creme brulee. The service is great and this place will keep you full of energy all night long with all happenings.  

4. O2 Rooftop Moscow – The Best Red Square View!

Drop by the Ritz Carlton and find the jet set vibe in the O2 lounge! Not really one of the best rooftop restaurants in Moscow, but the view balances it. This is for sure the best view of Moscow city center.

Entering the Ritz Carlton you enter a world of luxury, even the ladies’ room is worth a visit!

Take the elevator to the top floor and find a magic view of this impressive city. The prices reflect the name of the hotel but you can always just grab a coffee or a drink to enjoy the view for a while. Lunchtime or evening time, the view and vibe are just as good! This gem among the best rooftop restaurants in Moscow is the perfect spot for some rest after a long day around the Red Square!

5. Buono – For a Romantic Lady & the Tramp Dinner!

An Italian restaurant above the Radisson Royal Hotel, Buono is the most romantic one among the best rooftop restaurants in Moscow. Candlelit dinner by the stars, with an incredible wine list and fantastic service. Whether dining or drinking, it’s perfect for couples!

The food is as good as the atmosphere and the truffle pasta served in a big parmensan cheese will make your evening for sure!

6. Mercedes Rooftop Moscow – Old Elegance with a Posh Touch

1. Food: 3

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 4

4. Design: 4

5. Service: 4

If you want to stay in the gorgeous Seven Sisters building all night long, take the elevator from Bueno to the 31st floor for the Mercedes rooftop Moscow. As the name implies, this is a place full of luxury, elegance and with a posh vibe to it. The 360 bar has tables next to the huge windows and if you are lucky you get one with a view over Moscow City (the skyscraper area). A huge marble staircase, leather coaches together with creative cocktails makes this a favorite spot among the Moscovites. The food is ok but the drinks are better but the view is the winner! A perfect way to end a Moscow evening!

Among the best rooftop restaurants in Moscow, Sky Lounge has a very particular feel to it. Located on a building mixing Soviet architecture with futuristic copper, no other place looks like this. Going here is an experience in itself, more due to the vibe and specifics of the place than the food as such.

A Unique Creation with a Fab View!

The seafood is great, but it’s best to drop by for a drink. It’s around Gorky Park, so great if visiting the area. You’ll get a unique view of Moscow here, opposite side of what you get from Ruski and Sixty. The terrace is great for summer evenings. 

8. Strelka – The Hip Sunset Place in Moscow’s Creative Hoods for Warm Days

1. Food: 3

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 5

4. Design: 3

5. Service: 3

Strelka is the place to be during summer. Its rooftop or rather terrace on the roof as the house is not so high has the best location for afternoon hangout and sunset drinks. A truly popular spot among the trendy Moscow crowd located in the Red October area – the party island in the middle of the Moscow river. The vibe here is chill and relaxed and the view over the river and the gorgeous Christ the Savior Cathedral! The menu offer bar menu like dishes and the wine assortment is great. Start with a lunch and you will like to stay here until the sun has disappeared! For the party lovers, one of the most popular clubs, Gipsy, is just around the corner!
