A real Russian restaurant

A welcoming atmosphere and a menu which offers the best of Russian cuisine. The best place I found during my visit to Nizhny and thoroughly to be recommended.

A blond waiter -girl started shouting at my 1.5 year son. Scary moment to baby ! NOT A CHILDREN FRIENDLY place! It's sad, 'cause food was okeyish, but not best Russian Cuisine you can find. If you want to pay a lot and see not smiling waiters, who shout at you and your family, this is your place. Never again... More

Interior is lovely, cuisine is traditional Russian with pretty good variety of dishes. The only thing that spoils the place is horrible service. The waitresses are mean and not hospitable at all. The look at you with such as disgrace when u ask pretty standard things like split the bill or for additional chair. I also have to look for... More

Location is good: in a historical part of the city. Food choice is decent, as well as its quality. Wine cart is pretty poor and very expensive. Service - so-so.

For me, by far, was the best restaurant in N. Novgorod! I´ve visited it twice during my stay and tried different dishes. The people are cordial, and speak a wonderful English. It is more costly but it worth's every penny. It is a classical house with classical Russian dishes, soups and desserts. A must, when in N. Novgorod.

We had dinner there after a dear friend, Nadya, recommended this place. It was not difficult to find and when we arrived it had at least two very large tables with at least 20 guests each. Nonetheless. they found a place for us and the service was prompt, attentive and very helpful. The quality of the food was very good... More

Pyatkin has become one of my two favorites for upscale, classic Russian cuisine in Nizhny Novogrod. Service is always excellent and the food is outstanding. My wife and I eat here frequently, perhaps eight times in the last seven or eight months. The setting is wonderfully comfortable, intimate and cozy. Pyatkin is one of the PIR Group's restaurants (they also... More

Was there to celebrate my girl's birthday this was a late one as I actually made the review on FourSquare. Anyway, I would say that it worth the visit and will be back again because of the quality of the food served here. The waitresses were very attentive and we enjoyed our dinner here.

My dad and I dropped by for a light dinner, and were so impressed with the food and atmosphere at Pyatkin that we went back for lunch the next day. If you are looking for Russian cuisine in Nizhny, then be sure to visit. Although we stuck to the appetizers on both occasions, I found the food to be very... More
