The atmosphere was friendly and joyful but this is definitely not the place to go for a genuine gastronomic experience. The menus are fixed and the quality of the food is disappointing . Come on! For this price you could put more effort into cooking!

Certainly nothing to get excited about. Choice of either Russian or French menus both fixed price and à la carte. Dishes were standard Russian fare. My oukha (fish soup) consisted of a watery broth with three pieces of salmon floating around and four mussels. The...More

Just a summary: when you order a "cafet gourmand" and what you're served is a coffee with three cookies from Auchan, this is a no-go. And basta.

It was somewhat better then we had expected but it was not really great. The russian part of the menu is a usual story - the starters are ok and the mains are much worse. Again for the russian food it is too expensive and...More

This is a French and Russian restaurant. I had the Russian menu and my friend had the French. The escargot and Russian soup were delicious. The Russian chicken had a strong flavor but was tasty. The lamb left a lot to be desired flavor wise....More

Our first night in Paris we stopped here for the reasonable prices, but they made it a special night for us. We sat in the courtyard and they sang for us and sent two violinists so we could dance in the rain. Priceless!

While the outdoor courtyard was pleasant and inviting the whole experience was a major disappointment. We appreciate lunches which are relaxing and not rushed but over 3 hours for a 2-person lunch was ridiculously long. No apologies from staff either. I ordered mussels, as it...More

I ordered salad chouba, borsht, pelmenis, herrings and 3 shot of vodka it cost me 115 euro. The food was mediocre but the waitress was very friendly. But in short if you expect something special don't go there. I've been living in Russia for 18...More

Ok, so! If you want russian experience here it is!. Just like it would be in Russia. If you take the place out of context and treat it simply as a place to dine it probably wouldn't score all that well. However depending on your...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
