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. I believed that there are many... More

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

This restaurant is probably visited mostly by tourists only for 2 reasons: prices are quite high, and the atmosphere is aimed to be very Russian. We were the only visitors there, though must admit we were late visitors. The place is furbished with all these nostalgic pre-soviet time decor, and overall feels cozy. The food was very good, especially the... More

This is the best restaurant I've eaten in in Russia. Two of us ate there three nights running and all the food was excellent, with a wide and interesting choice of starters, mains and desserts. They also have a few bottles of wine under 1000 rubles, unusual in Russia in such a high quality restaurant. Our average bill was around... More

That´s where I ate what is simply the best beef stroganoff of my life. I definetely recommend it. The atmosphere is nice. The only problem was the cigarrete smoke, as everywhere else in Russia...

If you are on a diet may not be the right place, but if not, then food is certainly good, traditional russian recipes, well prepared and well served. I had fish baked with potatoes, eggs and cabbage, but also meat and poultry main courses sounded very attractive. Service is fine and ambient is really nice, the dining room had a... More

Good traditional Russian food with excellent decoration in a pre-Soviet period style, just as you would wish to dine in very stylish surroundings. Staff were very good, spoke excellent English and gave good advice on food and drink choices.

The food is excellent, the best russian cuisine! The atmosphere is good, pretty music. I was impressed by restaurant's decor as if you are in XIX century in a rich merchant's house.

The food is Russian, that means you can eat potatoes, fish, and cabbage. But you have also some special dish, quite good. It is not my favorite food, but the decoration, the ambiance makes up for it. It really feels nice, cosy, warm in there. Makes you want to have a cigar and a brandy ... Definitely nice for a... More
