Experience is quite the same that I received in Bistro De Luxe. Great food, great interior, overpriced, with stressed service. The only way to drink water is to buy an Italian one. I would say that I had a joy with food but the atmosphere is doubtful.

Undiscerningly tucked-away down a smaller road is this excellent little restaurant. The staff were particularly pleasant and my wife & I were fortunate to have Anastasia look after us. Anastasia was particularly friendly, with a natural warmth, which she coupled very well with a professional attitude. Our meals were well presented and tasted fresh and wholesome. Quantity was good and... More

Went to news cafe because of the reviews. It's not a cafe. The good news is the coffee - I had an espresso - is very good. The bad thing is the waiter asks if I want a glass of water with it - which is usual everywhere - and brings a bottle of water with the espresso that costs... More

The breakfast itself was super good, but the service not. Both waiting too long (40min !) and service is bad. And heared no excuses. Never return soon.

Had breakfast/lunch at the News Cafe with my spouse after the Police Parade. We had heard many good things about the Cafe. We were not disappointed. In fact, this small restaurant delivered exceptional food and service. The staff spoke excellent English. You could easily converse with them. The young supervisor had spent a summer in Maine at a camp and... More

The environment is very serene and comfortable with leather couches and smooth music. It is across the British Embassy. The food is great. Try the New York streak!

Located on Karl Marx St, News Cafe is a comfortable bar and restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Excellent and charming service with most of the staff speaking English. Set lunchtime menu offers both value and choice - soups are excellent - and during the winter months the hot alcohol based drinks not to be missed. Although expensive by... More

We had a very nice breakfast here. General European as well as local specialities are on offer, and everything we had was very good. This is a fairly small city cafe, and it has a Mitteleuropa feel to it. Highly recommended for a business breakfast or a coffee. Free wifi.

I had breakfast, lunch and dinner during most of the week that I spent in Minsk. Very friendly service. Excellent menu. I recommend their spaghetti (better than you get in most Western European places), in particular the Arrabiata variant. Their Saltimbocca is also excellent, not to forget their wines and coffees. Compared to average local prices you pay a bit... More
