Being in Paris we were expecting cosmopolitanism and great food. Vatrouchka did not disappoint. I've eaten Russian food before so I knew the lay of the menu (which was provided with an English version) and chose some favourites - rustic borscht, tefteli (meatballs) and buckwheat...More

The food really tastes like authentic, traditional Russian dishes.I found sides like salad and onions unnecessary as dishes themselves are more than enough. Decor is average and could be better,but will definitely come back for Russian food.

I have been looking for a place like this in Paris for the longest time! Most Russian restaurants in Paris is all about vodka, caviar and ridiculous prices, but this place is just right. The food is fresh, home made and very reasonably priced. The...More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and

from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
