AVOID PUSHKIN!!! I had my experience 2 months ago and was so upset with the entire experience. These people obsiously do not have any idea about F&B. When entering the room and observing the decor, setup and seating arrangement is a tasteless combination of bad finishing (paintings on walls and vitrine were inaccurate) and cheap furniture and wall tatoos. Ambience or atmosphere has nothing to do with Pushkin. After receiving the menu I realized it completely in Russian (regardless if I can read it or not) and first dishes listed on the menu of each course were non-russians. They started with Ceasar Salad,Spaghetti Bolognaise, Napoli, further down by the bottom you were able to find the actual authentic russian food. Half the choice was not available, no borsch no this no that. great we took what they had. Big bottle of sparkling water? only small available of 250ml .. .enough for one glas only. Why? because they sell it for 17dhs.Before our starters arrived dark bred was served. Starters arrived, cleared right after one of us has finished their plates and main course brought instantly. Taste of the food was not bad but some items were powder products from can or packs which were just heated up or defrosted. After receiving our bill I found the charge of 8 dhs for the dark bred. I asked the waiter why he has charged me for the bred as I assumed it was complementary since we didnt order any. The waiter replied that this is how they usually do in this restaurant. I asked for further explanation or any information about bred charges. after refering to the menu even then he was not able to show me the actual bred charges. I dont care for these 8 dhs but this is the typical russian way to rip you off in a restaurant. They know the russians will pay anyway and therefore bring you bred, small bottles so you have no other choice. after explaining to the waiter that this is not correct he did not want to understand or try to handle the situation. No apologize, no adjustment on the bill and also no thank you or good bye when we left the sad place. After all disaster I realized the quality of the meat in the dumplings was so bad that the entire day I had strong acid level and burbed all day long. people avoid this place. not worth it, your wallet and stomach will be gratefull as well as your nerves.
