Visited this restaurant on a Friday night. Very pleasant atmosphere, well decorated with relaxing music. We attempted to order a cocktail off the menu before dinner, but were told they no longer served spirits. The alternative was only wine, the cheapest bottle of red on the menu was 6000 rubles. As there were no glasses of wine listed on the... More

We went to this place because of the very good TripAdv reviews, which were absolutely right to the point. The food was excellent, we tried 3 different meat dishes (filet mignon, pork mayonnaise, shish kebab) and they were all great. The vegetable salad was also very nice, and so were the drinks. The service is professional and discrete, and the... More

The place is good. The only thing we didn't like was a quite ignorant attitude of waitresses. It's not a cheap place, so we expected good service. Our plates were waiting for a waiter. The choice of drinks was quite average, but the food was good. Anyway thank you.

From starter to main course are so delicious and can compare to Michelin star restaurant. We had baked pumpkin salad and Bisque soup, both are perfectly made. Their duck leg and risotto are very tasty. With the cozy environment, we all, including our kids were very enjoying the dinner there. I very recommend this restaurant to any of you !!

The staff could all speak English and also provided a English translated menu. The dishes are amazing. We as a family had the salmon appetiser, shrimp soup, carbonara, risotto and a duck breast. All of these were extremely tasty and well presented. We plan to come here again very soon. Drinks are also very fresh and good. The service although... More

Highly recommended for a nice diner. Arrived at 6 pm and were welcomed right in. Everything we tried was delicious. Very reasonable for someone from NY. Steak with a side and beer for under $20. Can't beat that in my book.
