Very good

This little restaurant is located on the main city's street Bolshaya Pokrovka. Very cozy, always almost full regardless of the time of the day. Great place for students' companies. You can find on the walls very interesting "life-teaching" statements. Food is very good. When you walk stairs, you... read more

This restaurant has good food at a decent price, nice staff and a pleasant decor. It a attracts a youthful crowd but doesn't scare older people either.

The place has a great (and fairly uncommon for the area) business model- good food, quick service, and low prices. There are no frills as far as ingredients or presentation, but the quality is very high. The design and feel of a place are also very pleasant. If you are lucky, the cafe is usually bus, sit on a balcony... More

This small restaurant is located on the top floor in the building which is book shop. The name of restaurant is translated to english as "Library". Place is very good for wide range of clients - romantic couples and single people. Interrior is very cozy. A lot of books. You can read something during the luch (diner, breakfast)

We decided to visit this place as we wanted to check what keeps this place in the top list of places to eat in Nizhny. We liked the interior inside, while the terrace was rather too small and too narrow so we decided not to sit there. The service was OK, the waiting time for the ordered salad + lasagna... More

My wife and I came here for dinner, and were seated despite the lack of a reservation. (It fills up quickly, so we recommend the reservation if you don't arrive early!) This started as a great experience, despite the hostess' odd question of whether we had come to eat, or to visit the restroom. The ambience was great: a nice... More

We came here based on the glowing reviews. We arrived at 9pm pm, we waited 15 minutes to get a menu in English and after we placed the order we waited some more till we learnt that they could not cook meat and or fish before the kitchen was closing (45 minutes later). So we only could order pizza or... More
