This a very tiny place, it takes some time to get your meal on your table but the food is very good! Real russian cuisine. All the menu is very tasty and full of flavour. If you are trying different food, thus the place. The price is very good as well.

When you are in the city and, for whatever reason, want to eat something different ... this is the place, I've eaten here several times over the course of the past decade, and there is nothing I can complain about. Finding a restaurant which serves Russian style food, seemingly hidden away in one of the city's oldest and most historical... More

This restaurant is not big, but it is in front of the one of the most beautiful parks in Mexico City, good prices! The owner is there checking everything and the service is fast and precise. Each waiter knows exactly the menu and they have Russian beer! The best is the Honey cake! great flavor one of the best cakes... More

So, I know this place for the past 4 years... The staff is really nice, the place is just like 10 tables big, the food is amazing, the Empanadas (meat, cheese, apple) are just great. Love this place...

As a Russian, I am usually very critical about the quality of Russian restaurants abroad when my friends take me there. It is so not the case with Kolobok. I have been there four times already, last time November 2014, and I keep coming back for more. Their food is really lovely, I would recommend it to everyone.

I primarily choose this restaurant because of location, price, and curiosity of Russian food. My daughter and I were both surprised that the food tasted great as well. We both placed the restaurant in the top two of our trip for flavor and service. We were Americans, in Mexico, eating Russian, and our waiter was a Mexican, serving Russian food,... More

It was a surprise to find Russian cuisine just like that, on the corner! Excellent food! Especially after travelling for such a long time, it's a nice change for the palate. Would come back once or twice a month!

I had never ventured to Santa Maria La Ribera. I always heard this was not a safe area of Mexico City and that, although beautiful, it was better to avoid. It is one of the first developed neighborhoods in Mexico City, one of the top choice for politicians and wealthy Mexicans back in the Porfiriato (or so they told me).... More
