World of Café Pouchkine

THE SPIRIT OF Café Pouchkine

Designed exclusively to treasure our pastry creations, modern and luxurious packaging of “Café Pouchkine” is easy to recognize. Its bright and colourful stripes are a tribute to La Bayadère, a famous Russian ballet, first staged in the St. Petersburg Imperial Bolshoi Kamenny  Theatres on January 23rd, 1877.  

Originally choreographed by Marius Petipa, it was brilliantly interpreted by the great Rudolf Nureyev in 1992 at the Paris Opera. Thus, the colourful striped pattern resonates with both France and Russia, evoking the memories of the immortal ballet.


Café Pouchkine in Paris is designed in the same spirit, cultivating decorative epic, cozy atmosphere and authentique cuisine.

In contrast with radiant, monochrome cafés with open space, each of the four cafe lounges (“Pouchkine” Bar and Hall of Catherine II on the ground floor, Salon Pavlovsk  on the first floor and finally Salon Madeleine on the second floor) is decorated with cultural extravagance of the late XVIII - early XIX centuries.

The best Moscow artists - painters, decorators, craftsmen and cabinetmakers - were invited to decorate the venue… Antiques (chandeliers, sculpture and art objects) were personally selected by Andrei Dellos, who, from the inspiration to the place patina, kept a close eye on each and every detail.


Open from breakfast to dinner, “Café Pouchkine” serves meals according to the time of the day:
quick coffee to go, aperitif on the terrace, business or family lunch, afternoon tea, dinner with friends or for two… Café is intended to be an affordable luxury venue.
The menu is a perfect example to that, as it features a choice of set menus and a wide selection of snacks.

With his expertise, it is only natural that Andrei Dellos, restaurateur and gastronomy lover, has called upon the multi-Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse to create a well-balanced  menu of great quality. Produced by the teams of “Café Pouchkine” and DUCASSE Conseil, this menu offers an exquisite blend of Russian and French cuisines.

Pouchkine Express

Some of the festivity items on our menu include hot goat's cheese and roasted pear salad, Pouchkine Caesar salad and Kamchatka crab salad with avocado. And don’t forget about other light snacks, such as Smoked wild salmon from the Baltic sea with blini!

Traditional dishes

And finally, some of the authentic Russian dishes will make you want to explore Russia: bortsch, beef stroganoff, Pithiviers to retreat yourself with a warming broth or a puff pastry, and choices of caviar among the most affordable ones.

Sweet menu

Surprising and rich, sweet menu features more than thirty desserts (without counting the ice creams sundaes), and some of them are even prepared in front of you, such as luscious kulich with a French twist or Suzette crêpes. Sweet menu will change according seasons and inspiration of Café Pouchkine chef patisserie duo - Nina Metayer and Patrick Pailler.

A restaurant legend

More than 50 years ago the well-known French chansonnier Gilbert Bécaud wrote the song “Nathalie” and dedicated it to his Russian guide Natalia, whom he met while performing in Moscow:

She was talking so seriously,
Of the October Revolution
As for me, I was thinking
That after Lenin’s tomb
We would go to “Café Pouchkine”
And drink hot chocolate

The song became astonishingly popular, and it is no wonder that both Moscow inhabitants and tourists tried to find “Café Pouchkine.”
And yet, merely being a poetic fantasy of Gilbert Becaud, it did not exist! But it was this image that inspired Andrei Dellos, an entrepreneur and restaurateur with Franco-Russian roots, to create “Café Pouchkine”. And as a tribute to the memory of literary legend Alexander Pouchkine, he created a French-style café serving aristocratic Russian cuisine.
