Great delicious food from Russian traditional oven with an authentic atmosphere and great location. This place is quite busy even at day time so it's better to book in advance.

We went here after a day in the city, and admittedly we did not have reservations but the place was not very busy and we arrived at an early time (4pm) so we were given a table near the entrance. the atmosphere was still nice....The menu is a little odd, since it is primarily in english with russian sub-texts (the opposite of what you would expect to find) we found that some of the translations are also a little bit off, but nothing so severe. The reason we found it strange, is although the menu was in english, absolutely none of the staff or servers spoke english. Service was also on the slow side. The food itself was quite tasty, my mother-in-law had a mushroom appetizer that was excellent, and my baked beef tongue in cream sauce was also very good, even if some of the pieces were chewy and overcooked (the serving was large enough to also have many tender pieces) I saw in several other reviews people praising the homemade flavored vodkas, so we tried them. To be honest, although they were strong and with unique flavors, we found them to be of below average quality. perhaps good for mixing, but not for drinking straight. Overall, I would call this place average. The ambiance is nice, and the food is authentic Russian, but for the price you can get better service and just as high quality food elsewhere in the city.More

You can experience a Russian vibe restaurant with good food and great service in a smaller city of Russia with much less prices than Moscow or St. Petersburg. Here we tasted the best Borsch during our stay in Russia, Rabbit dish was very tasty, we...also tries the pot with tongue and cream which was also delicious. Try their homemade liqueurs. Staff could not speak English but they are nice and great at serving & there is an English menu so don't worryMore

Every single thing about this place of excellent: The ambiance, the variety of the menu, the delightful staff, the location and the prices! Being Russian myself, I'm very picky about Russian restaurants, as they often get quite tacky. But this was an absolute dream! Definitely...try the nastoyki :)More

I wanted my husband to try authentic Russian cuisine, and this is the best place for it. My own grandma couldn't cook better!

My boyfriend and I asked for a veal with stuffing home made cheese, we have been given a beef meat with potato and zucchini.. the manager came informing that to prepare the meal with cheese, it would take too much time and the English menu...was wrongly translated ... in additional we asked water without gas, we got with gas and the deep fried breaded cheese was completely cold inside, I would expected that cheese would be melted ...a a complete disaster... the manager even did not apologized ... do not go there...More

The restaurant is located at a picturesque spot on the Volga embankment. Although most of the staff were not to fluent in english, thet did have an english menu and did their best to communicate. I do not have a lot of experience with Russian...food but what we had was very delicious. We also had some home made spiced vodka shots with pine nuts. It was out of the world. The prices were quiet reasonalble although by no means it is a cheap eat.More

Atmosphere looks very authentic, service was good, however food fell short of expectations. I had mixed grilled meats for appetizers and cabbage salad. Meats were tough and overcooked (portion was very large). Salad had too much oil and was fairly bland. Would not go back.

We found this place on the wonder from our hotel. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and feels very traditional and our waiter, Serge, was fantastic! We had the meat platter which was fantastic, with the home made drink based on vodka and pine nuts....The deserts were definitely worth the wait, Apple pie and a berry layer cake still warm from being cooked fresh, incredible! Would definitely recommend this place is your looking for good food and a nice atmosphere at a reasonable price.More
