Great Little Restaurant with Nice Ambiance

The staff was very friendly and accomodating and spoke great English. The food was very nice (although next time I think I won't get the tenderloin-it was nice but I should have gone for food you can only really get in Russia). The ambiance is nice and classy with classical music playing.

Quiet little dacha-style restaurant tucked away outside the city center.  You'll need to understand Cyrillic to find the sign for this hidden gem, but the food is well worth the hunt. Beautiful 19th century decor, paired with classical music. English-speaking staff. House specialties: beef tenderloin with potatoes and mushroom cream sauce (not exactly stroganoff) and chicken kiev.

Closed to the area in the liberty style, this russian restaurant offers tipical tasty dishes. The environment is warm and welcoming, russian style. Excellent food, good price. Don't miss herrings, mushroom soup and salmon trout. Very clean bathroom with singing birds

Eating at Chekhov was part of my Travel All Russia included lunches. I was pleasantly surprised as I am a vegetarian and I usually figure I will forego a meal when it is built into the tour itinerary. At Chekhov's, they made an effort and didn't just give me a plate of cold or plain, steamed veggies. They actually made... More

We had a very nice dinner there. The atmosphere is great and the food is tasty. The staff is friendly. Salmon with apple puree is a very good choice!

I don't understand what happened. High rated restaurant was absolutely worse experience for long time. We had big hopes after dining another restaurant in town day before. It was so bad that it started to be funny. Waiters lost the control big time as if the staff was aliens in the restaurant. Nothing worked and the food was only ok.... More

just the most friendly and quaint restaurant. Food was very good but not gourmet, however the ambiance and the general enjoyment will drive me back again. Perfect place if you have had a long day.

This is my favoriite restaurant in all of Russia. I come back here on every visit. If its location were more central it would certainly be in the TripAdviser top 10. As it is, it's a 5-10 minute ($7) taxi ride from the centre - but WELL worth it. The specialties are old style Russian food. their stroganoff is to... More
