I went here for dinner with my husband. It is on the pricery side for Cotonou, but we had heard good things, so we opted to go ahead. It did not disappoint. In addition to what you order, they bring two amuse bouche, homemade russian appetizers that are very good. This is followed by fresh bread from the oven with... More

We have been a number of time at Rouski Dom and were never disappointed. The food is maybe on the expensive side but the atmosphere is cosy, there is a wide choice and a real customer attention, especially when the owner is there. We usually like the Chicken Kiev, the various types of meatballs or the man variations with salmon.... More

Russian cuisine whilst in Cotonou? Why not and what a pleasure to chat to Natasha whilst sipping on some vodka! Good Russian food and very pleasant atmosphere for an unusual night out! A good way to transport yourself to the shore of the Moskva river for an evening!

I come to Cotonou every couple of months and attempt to eat at different restaurants every time and was surprised to only happen across this restaurant after several years. This is not a very well known restaurant, but really should be! Excellent food, lovely presentation presentation and stylish, crisp and clean environment under direct Russian supervision - highly recommended!! The... More

I visit this place every time I come to Cotonou, since I discovered it 3 years ago. I like the atmosphere - well appointed traditional decorations, comfortable dining area, nice and classy cutlery. Generous meals with authentic ingredients, well worth the money. Good selection of wines - but no Guinness, which is sad (I complained to the owner - she... More
