Our restaurant celebrates the amazing food of Russia, the Ukraine, and other ex-republics of the Soviet Union. Along with offering you superb food in a historic, retro-Soviet ambiance, our inspiration is to also pay homage to the thousands of Soviet women who decided to make Cuba permanently their home during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s (few Soviet men settled in Cuba during that time) and the thousands of their sons and daughters born in Cuba. We also pay tribute to the thousands of Cubans who went to study university in the USSR and maintain a deep sense of

We went in a large group and the food was good, especially the ravioli which we had for an appetizer. You can enjoy good views of the ocean and expect good service as well.

This lovely restaurant on the Malecon overlooking the sea has fabulous food. The pierogi and the stroganoff were delicious as were the cocktail. If you go for lunch, you benefit from the delightful views. Wonderful service.
