nice little place with an atmosphere for a light diner

Lots of tourists seem to be coming here. Not too many things on the menu but quality was good. They seem to be preparing everything when you order. Very good homemade bread.

Came in on a Saturday evening around 7PM and it was very quiet - we were one of three other patrons. The decor is "belle epoque" style as described in the Lonely Planet; however, about two-thirds of the menu items were unavailable. Not sure if this was the norm or if they had a busy lunch rush - it is... More

We stumbled upon this quaint restaurant not knowing of it's rating or reviews on Tripadvisor. The service was very good. The atmosphere was great. The food was awesome! If you happen to be in the vicinity please make it a point to dine here! Highly Recommended!

This was a really memorable stop in Irkutsk. It's an old-fashioned Viennese coffee house (they do meals too) with elegant, locally-inflected decor. Not cheap, but they genuinely care about presentation and offered very good service in spite of limited English. You will not believe that you are in Siberia, and will want to have photos of you at your table... More

We had a great dinner here and was surprised by the high level of service. Our waitress spoke very passable English. The food was very high quality and presented wonderfully. Our dinner cost 1390r for two mains, a side and two drinks which was great value for the beautiful setting, service and quality of the food.

Quite small an cozy place; rather expensive for Irkutsk but worth it; nice and solid Russian cuisine but with no local “specialties”; certain personnel speak some English, but do not expect any other languages. The place to dine if you are a tourist with limited Russian language capabilities.

...but only one, so it may take your party some time to choose from the range of soups, salads, mains, desserts and drinks. No matter - the setting is lovely and worthy of an extended stay. The staff spoke excellent English and were the most friendly, welcoming and helpful encountered thus far in Russia. Everything we ordered was fresh, hot... More

Adorable little cafe right on the main drag. Pleasant service, good Russian classics, reasonably priced. Make sure you sit in the windowed room to watch the action on Karl Marks Street!

As were we told a few times this is the best place to eat in Irkutsk. It is on the upper end of the price scale, but you soon realise why. The food is top end, the service was great. There is the standard smoking indoors and no english menues. However there is a smoke free area which we sat... More

Even if you are not hungry, just go in and order a drink and enjoy the interior. It's so nice!!! The food was good and the service was excellent. Try the apple strudel!
