Not many people know the old Slavic word for swamp, mosc, but everyone has heard of it at least once in their life about the city of Moscow. Russia's capital city counts about 875 years of existence and is full of ups and downs. But it managed to survive the Tatars, Napoleon wars, the fall of tsars, the revolution, and much more and to grow to be one of the largest and most praised metropolitan areas in the world.

Nowadays, it is famous for Red Square, the Kremlin, the Tretyakov Gallery, the Bolshoy Theater, and the wide variety of exquisite restaurants, among which fish restaurants traditionally play an important role. Below you will find a list of the best fish restaurants in Moscow, each with its concept, menu, and philosophy.

The Brand Chef Dmitry Parikov is like the mythological Poseidon because where he is, there is always fresh wild fish and other sea inhabitants. Signature soup “Ryba Moya” with tiger shrimps, commander squids, Karelian pike perch and mussels is one of the reasons people believe in miracles here. But miracles should be shared and when you get “Kind oysters” you donate to Khabensky charity. And unbeatable desserts will make the gastronomic experience even more complete.  

This place is a good choice for the middle-class guests and those seeking enlightenment in fish cuisine.

Sashimi
Sashimi

Sashimi is raw seafood, typically salmon or tuna, that is sliced into small bits. It is one of the most popular Japanese dishes.

This place is a good blend of a cozy small Michelin restaurant and a fish shop on Patriarch Ponds.

The defining feature of Maxim Polzikov’s cuisine is that nothing is fried here, so a lot of things are served raw or boiled, as for example a variety of sashimis, salads, or oysters. Everything that guests order is prepared in an open kitchen but if you prefer to enjoy the luxurious dishes other places than here, takeaway is always an option. The selection of suitable wines compliments the dishes.

This restaurant manifestates freshness of ingredients that can be first seen and then tasted.

Bruschettas
Bruschettas

It's a classic Italian appetizer, or antipasto, served before the main dish. Bruschettas are made from garlic-rubbed grilled bread and topped with fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil, pepper and salt. Sometimes they come with mozzarella, cured meat and other vegetables. The dish traces back to the 15th-century Ancient Rome.

A freshly renovated Michelin-starred fish restaurant is there for all lovers of Peruvian cuisine combined with deep house music.

The menu includes mostly fish and seafood, the emphasis is primarily on ceviche — that naturally means everything is very fresh and chilled. You can also count on freshly-baked bread here and famous bruschettas with crab, avocado and quail egg. But Elizaveta Stakhanova didn’t forget the vegetarians who will please their taste buds with salad with avocado, cucumber and edamame beans in walnut sauce, pumpkin cream soup with curry, pumpkin cheesecake and sea buckthorn sorbet.

Here it’s never a problem to kick start your day with light and healthy dishes and a variety of detox drinks.

Ukha
Ukha

Ukha is a Russian fish soup cooked from different types of fish (e.g. wels, bream or ruffe) and vegetables: potatoes, leek, carrot, dill and parsley. Black pepper and salt can be added optionally. This soup was first mentioned in 17th-18th centuries. It is more preferable to cook the dish from the fresh and younger fish.

A fishing club and a restaurant combined is what makes this place so unique.

In this complex you’ll have an opportunity either to catch a fish of your own and later the Chef Elman Veliev will cook it according to your preferences or to take a pick out of the menu. The menu star, sturgeon, is being bred by the restaurant itself on its farm, and other fish also is of superb quality. Ukha, pike cutlets, a bucket of Valdai crayfish, and much more will make you come back here many times after.

When visiting this restaurant, be ready to spend the whole day in a harmony with nature, traditional Russian cuisine, and yourself.

In the kitchen, two Chefs conjure, offering visitors only the best execution of Pan Asian and European cuisine dishes. No wonder you have a hard time deciding between oysters, shrimps, octopus, salmon, sterlet, and other delicacies cooked in all possible variations.

Tartare
Tartare

Meat tartare - a delicious dish for lovers of exclusive food with the addition of raw meat. Despite the fact that the main component of the dish is raw coarse beef, the tartare is truly delicious. This dish is prepared surprisingly fairly quickly but served as a gourmet dish along with dry red wine and fresh vegetable salad.

Thanks to two Chefs, in this restaurant, guests can travel to the Far East without leaving the heart of Moscow.

This Michelin restaurant is primarily known for its new concept of MediterrAsian cuisine that combines Russian regional products with Mediterranean and Asian dishes and cooking techniques. Guests can choose sea urch, tartare, carpaccio, and more to their taste in the Raw bar with a glacier and an aquarium, and then continue with black cod steak, sterlet backed in salt, and finishing the meal with one out of many dessert options.

The pleasure of eating in this place will be even greater considering the stunning panoramic Moscow view.

Crabs
Crabs

It is a popular seafood meal with a buttery savory flavor. Crabs may be boiled, grilled, deep-fried, stewed, or steamed. There is a wide range of dishes with crabs.

Prices and serving sizes in this restaurant will never leave you hungry and robbed of your last dime.

Anton Lyalin and Kirill Martynenko made shrimps the overall stars of this restaurant, along with crab and two types of chowder soup. On working days you are always welcome for a business lunch here with salads and starters, the soup of the day, the second course, and a selection of soft drinks. But if you prefer your fish or Boston Chowder with a glass of good wine, about 40 positions are being poured into glasses here.

But be aware that this place is so budget-friendly that it'll be hard not to overeat.

Cheesecake
Cheesecake

Perhaps, the most popular cake in the US and in Europe. These cheesecakes are made from Philadelphia cheese. You can buy them almost everywhere - in stores, cafes or restaurants.

In this restaurant you can always be sure that all dishes have something of Russian cuisine inside. 

One of the menu's biggest stars in this Michelin restaurant is a Kamchatka crab with mustard sauce. But if you feel like tasting something different you can choose among 50 crab and shrimp dishes with 300 different wines to glitter by their side. And while the adults are swapped away by the magic of the Chef Nikolay Bakunov’s masterpieces, a large selection of desserts will  keep the young ones occupied.

To make this place even more charming, you should consider coming here in the evening when live music starts to play.

But oyster festivals aren’t the only peculiarity of that place. Here when you choose the fish from the ice cooled counter you also define how it will be cooked and even to get it done in banana leaves isn’t a problem. And recently for all lovers of Pan Asian cuisine and original cocktails an excellent bar on the ground floor was opened starring tuna, sea bass, salmon, and vongole khe with Kimchi Daicho sauce from the chef Pavel Maletskiy.

This venue is a lovely combination of Mediterranean and Asian cuisines and reasonable prices.

Sea bass

Sea bass is distinguished by mildly sweet flavor and meaty consistency. There's a variety of ways to prepare sea bass, namely to grill, roast, steam, poach, and fry it.

This restaurant is famous for its atmosphere of a coastal tavern and large portion sizes. 

The brand chef Zachar Ivanchenko together with Elmira Sarkitova, the leading nutritionist at More Spam Prevention, promote the concept of standards of healthy Mediterranean classics here. And the open kitchen makes the cooking process disclosed for every guest. Sea bass filet with baked tomatoes and herbs is the most popular main course dish. And to accompany your cup of coffee, it is recommended ordering Basque cheesecake with figs or pumpkin pie with mascarpone cream.

Paella
Paella

Paella is a national dish of Spanish cuisine, its homeland is the city of Valencia. In Spain, there are about three hundred varieties of paella. In each Spanish province, paella is cooked in its own way: with meat, fish, seafood. There is also a vegetarian paella. But the main ingredients remain unchanged: it is saffron-flavored rice, tomatoes, and olive oil.

This isn’t just a restaurant, but an art platform for those who would like to know more about Spain and its culture.

No wonder, that the praised black paella will make you eat your fingers off. The chef Viktor Lobzin fell in love with Spanish cuisine a long time ago and wanted his restaurant dominated by paella. Besides 8 different paellas, among which marinara is the most popular one, dorado filet with root vegetables and cheese sauce, Valencian seafood soup, as well as meat dishes are always on the menu.  

If you search for a relaxed atmosphere where the chef can go out to the customers and take the order himself, that’s the right place.

Nakhodka, meaning “finding” in Russian, is definitely a suitable name for this restaurant where you can enjoy the tastes from the whole world in one place.

Young chef Daniil Bychkov doesn’t limit himself by geography, showing seafood from all possible perspectives. But at the same time, the apparent simplicity of the menu does not complicate the choice of visitors. Traditional Italian dishes such as homemade pappardelle with shrimp are neighbouring with Pan Asian gems – three types of poke and two types of gyoza, as well as with exclusive burgers with tuna or cod, and numerous seafood snacks to go with your beer.

A non-overloaded, mixed, basic fish and seafood menu proves suitable for everyday meals.

Seafood soup
Seafood soup

Some of the common ingredients in a seafood soup may include clam broth, potatoes, clams, shrimp, fish, celery, butter, milk or cream, sweet peppers, onions, herbs, spices, and flavorings. Russet potatoes are most often used as a thickener for seafood soups since they contain higher levels of starch but are low in moisture content.

If you have dreamed of being on a real ship since childhood, then this restaurant will make your dreams come true.

Either you choose a pirate salad, the so-called “sea seeds”, white sea soup, or fish mosaic, the natural taste of the main ingredients will be preserved and only slightly enriched with the aroma of spices. And a variety of meat dishes will be prepared on an open fire for you in the best Mediterranean and European traditions. It is also remarkable that this restaurant works as a grill bar, barbecue, steakhouse, and sports bar as well.

Excellent location with parking slots, cozy atmosphere and thoughtful interior with separate rooms make this restaurant an ideal venue for large companies.

When you are up for a business lunch or live-music in the evening, this restaurant has it all.

Don’t make a mistake by thinking that only beer makes you a real Tyke. The pub often hosts themed festivals, like seafood and steaks. The Yorkshir menu is supplemented with special offers, depending on the season and event. Atlantic herring, lightly salted salmon, or halibut with herbs and vegetables will miraculously transfer you to the UK just in a matter of one meal.

This place is a British island in the sea of Moscow, where you will finally understand what the words dinner and tea really mean in Yorkshir.

As it might be seen, in fish restaurants in Moscow everyone undoubtedly will find something to their liking. So, when you get a chance to discover the city, enjoy uncovering the hidden gastronomical treasures as well.
