Description: About the restaurant "Ermak" North-West of Moscow is a special place, concealing in its bosom the amazing beauty of the protected islets. Graceful river curl in Krylatskoye and... the street Bottom Mnevniki promptly bursts on an island, surrounded on all sides by the Moscow river. Remain behind everyday worries and bustle of the city. And here: a dense forest on the hill and amazing sky: free, bottomless... The atmosphere of the old Russian way of life that prevails in the "Ermak", gives guests a wonderful feeling of lightness and comfort. The territory of the complex is more reminiscent of a cozy manor house with well maintained trails and small ponds. The architectural ensemble of the restaurant is made in old traditions of Russian wooden architecture of the XVI-XVII centuries. Beautiful Russian solid carved tower "Ermak" and a spacious summer terrace on the water (own kitchen, smokehouse, barbecue). The interior of the restaurant entertains important guests such "trifles" as the old spinning-wheel, heavy iron pots and bowls, collars and harness, laid out and planed hung along the massive walls. A true poem about the gifts of the Siberian land you will find in the colorful menu (average score of 3000r, the portions are huge, the flavors are mind blowing). Fish soup "Royal" from 4 fish species (Beluga, sturgeon, whitefish, salmon) with a glass of vodka and black caviar on white bread, trophies delivered on the coals: bear meat, elk meat. Yes just do not count. And to wash down all this splendor offered a vigorous brew or cranberry. Yeah liquors and liqueurs miscellaneous: the cranberry and kedrovuha, horseradish and pepper vodka, cherry and raspberry, anise and Pomerantseva. In General that the soul will have. Supplement stay quiet Russian nostalgic songs, and on Saturdays under a high vaulted wooden ceiling sound Russian songs performed by folk ensemble.

Thus is very nice restaurant with traditional Russian cuisine. The food is great, not cheap, but worth it. Excellent service.

Every time I am in Moscow I spend at least one evening in this restaurant. Perfect for discovering Russian food. You will really enjoy your meal.
The food is delicious, the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and the service is very quick and attentive to what you are asking.
It has been my favorite restaurant for years and it never looses it's quality.
By the way many famous people have visited it.
So do be shy and try at least once this restaurant. I don't think you will regret it

as i wanted to try the Russian cuisine we decided to visit Ermak.
it is located little outside of the center but you can easily get there with a taxi which isnt that expensive (compared to other capital city taxis)
The place on the outside looked magnificent.
And the inside was even better. Such traditional and warm place.
The stuff was very very helpful and welcoming.
The menu had too many choices for any kind of taste.
Our choice was to have oysters for start and continue with the ''hunters'' section.
The Oysters were the best i had so far in taste and freshness, but in the menu they were charged per 100grs and i didn't know that each was 400grs (yes it was mainly my mistake)
The main meal was so tasty and each part of it had its own unique way of being cooked.
we also had small glasses of traditional drinks (two different ones from berries, one from horseradish and one from orange). We had a hard time drinking them as they were very strong and different than normal alcohol but again the taste was very unique.

It is in 4.5/5 rating because 4 is little and 5 too much!!!
Highly recommended place.
