Marco Polo has more of a cafe feel than restaurant but the food is lovely! They have a full English menu which is helpful. I am vegetarian and there was a full page of vegetarian dishes which I was really grateful for! My friends shared a meat platter and my boyfriend had a type of stew and we shared very... More

Marco Polo's food selection is great and tasty, thr cheesecake is superb, the coffee is nice. I had to give it a second try though, bacause the first time they were so late with my food (my friends got them reasonably fast), that I just got up and left. So give it a try...

Coming from Mongolia I was happy to be spoilt for choice as a vegetarian. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and generally nice atmosphere. Probably better for lunch than dinner. I had the aubergine main dish and apple strudel for dessert. Yum!

It's pretty common in this part of Russia for places to be unbearably warm and this place was no exception. Probably 28 or 29 degrees inside. Maybe they think it's posh, but it's just uncomfortable. Coffee was good, service OK, was going to have lunch, but instead needed to get outside to cool off.

Visited this cafe in search of a good coffee in Ulan-Ude. Surprisingly the coffee was quite tasty and of high quality. The prices unfortunately were too high, in my opinion. Double Americano cost 145 rubbles, a piece of chocolate cake (which was fresh and tasty) - 180 rubbles. If you don't count your money, go their and enjoy your coffee... More

I loved it so much here I stopped off twice in one day! I'm currently traveling solo on the Trans Siberian and stopped for a days wondering round in Ulan Ude, I found Marco Polo as the first cafe to open in the morning to shelter from -26 outside until museums opened. I can speak NO Russian but the beautiful... More
