Great old school Russian décor with the staff dressed in traditional Russian formal dress. Service was impeccable and there were a male and a female singing traditional Russian songs. Food presentation was excellent, although taste wise it was good, not great. Be careful if a shot of vodka is offered with your soup as it is 8 euro extra! Dinner... 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

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.
