Oysters: such a tasty appetizer before dinner; also an ideal modern afternoon snack among many bars and restaurants in Moscow. Undoubtedly oysters are not the easiest to eat, and are often an acquired taste, with their strange odor and uncommon texture. A real foodie pairs them with Italian prosecco or French champagne – and believe us, it’s a delicious combination. Check out where you can get the best oysters in the capital of Russia.

Located in the heart of Moscow, this seafood bar and restaurant is the perfect spot to relax after the working week, with a glass of French champagne in one hand and an oyster in the other. With oysters delivered daily to the venue, there’s always something new on offer to try. In case you’re dining with non-oyster-eating friends, they can choose another fish course from the extensive menu. A good option for those who are really into seafood and fish, you won’t find any steaks here. Expensive but worth visiting.

Beer & Brut gastropub, nestled in a two-storey old mansion at Pokrovka Street, effortlessly matches two of the world’s most famous bubbly drinks: craft beer and sparkling wine. The menu features pan-Asian accents, and hints of spiciness touch every section of the menu—from starters to desserts—and make a perfect match for bubbly drinks. This gastropub focuses on craft and original beers, chosen based on taste quality and how well they pair with seafood.
