It is a very lovely restaurant - I could have enjoyed an evening just looking around at the decor, pictures, items on the shelves etc. The food prices are some of the highest I have paid, but I enjoyed everything. The staff are beautifully and handsomely dressed in traditional outfits. The idea of sour pickles served with honey was a... More

Beautiful and peaceful restaurant with fantastic atmosphere and delicious food. Pricing is on reasonable level but the style of the place makes you forget it.

Great restaurant with excellent Russian food. Stuff is dressed in the Russian tradition and rooms are filled with Russian decorations. Stuff is polite, but a bit stiff. The "russian" musicians were a good treat.

This was my first visit for twenty years. No, really... The atmosphere was just as I remembered -charming. The service was friendly but the food was less impressive. The blini was good and the Baked Alaska fine but the "Klassikko" main course "from 1972" was a disappointment. Piles of sauerkraut and onion smothered any taste that the small amount of... More

Hi I used to go to this restaurant with my wife, once per year for our anniversary. Unfortunately over the years the service level goes down in this restaurant Interesting is that for over the years restaurant keeps same menu and no new innovations in this area. For more frequent visitors this might turn to boring experience after the while.... More

We had a lovely family dinner on a Saturday night. The service was very good, friendly and prompt. We have beforehand ordered Binimenus and took also wine packages. Both the food and the wines were excellent and we had a really enjoyable evening.

We had dinner at this Russian restaurant last Wednesday. A really nice surprise to have Russian food in Helsinki and so tasty. The atmosphere was great and the waiters make everything to make us feel at our ease. This is not a very restaurant and neither very posh. Just a good place when you want to get some good Russian...

This Russian restaurant offers authentic atmosphere in the downtown of Helsinki. This time of the year they had special "Bear"-menu which our group chose for all of us. Also they recommended fixed drink menu which fit well with food. Excellent taste and interesting combination of drinks and food. This place is not the cheapest but definately worth of every euro.
