The food is ok, but is at Moscow prices, so totaly out of place in a city like Nizhnyi. Otherwise good choice of Russian dishes, including several choices of game. Good quality, but not impessive. One expects more when paying for bortsch 3 times more than a restaurant next door.

It is an ideal place for rest and meals while walking around the city center. Its interior is designed in the style of an old merchant's will elegantly complement the experience of studying the history of the region. We can only say that the food here is excellent quality, selection of ideal, delicious and the prices are normal.

Time to update my February, 2013 review of Vitalich. I've been back three times since the February 2013 review and service has gone way downhill. For example, the last time when I asked for mineral water they brought out a warm bottle. I asked for cold water, which they said they did not have (!) so I gave the bottle... More

For years when visiting Nizhny Novgorod my Russian friends and business colleagues would take me out for a wide variety of food they expected I'd like - Italian, American, German, English... just about anything but classic Russian food. I'd keep asking for a restaurant with a choice of what used to be one of the more varied cuisines in Europe... More

You can get your own room, how cool is that, We had the medieval room with stained windows and armor etc. Also get your own waitress. Excellent service, usual wide range of russian food, great for business meals. What is odd is the disco music blasting in from the foyer area, out of keeping I thought.

The restaurant is located in the historic center of the city, serves pretty decent Russian food and has a good choice of wines. Quite alright for a good dinner in Nizhny.

This is a quality restaurant. great food and service to match. the menu has many options. my favorite was the salmon carpaccio appetizer. the decor wasa russian log cabin interior with art to match. It isn't cheap but its worth the price

I've being there several times since 2003 (the latest visit - in June 2012). The highest quality is unchanged. Try it for yourself. Very nice, very tasty. The service is great as well.
