Slow service, why am I not surprised

Stopped here for a vodka and some snacks on our sightseeing route. Slow service and quite an unneccessary wait for a plain cheese plate. Waitress not really trying to be friendly or helpful.

It is one of the most exciting places for the business dinner. I am still remember that event that we had there about an year ago. Highly recommended. They offer the good collection of the vine.

The plates are elaborately presented and it's good quality. Loved the live piano music but it made conversation across a bid table a little hard. The food is rich and pricy but worth it if you're looking for something special.

It's not busy during daytime. Apart from good food you get an excellent view to River Volga. If you come in the evening you may enjoy sitting close to fireplace. Staff is friendly which is not very common in Russia.

We had dinner with old friends at this restaurant last week. It was superb. Our waiter - Masha - was very helpful and did a great job. The menu is very extensive and you will need help to get through all options. The place looks very modern, it is located on the top deck of the Yaroslavl Volga river port.... More

Take a table next to the windows facing Volga: it's flow, little ships moving back and forth, its other sloping bank (you are on the steep one), sun which is gently filling the restaurant through its glass walls - all this creates a unique mood and brings you peace of mind.
