If we are focusing on the food aspect, not tasty. I had a creamy mushroom and chicken pasta (half portioned) that tasted like some plain pasta with canned sauce. I did pick off my friends plate and the peasant fries (potato wedges) were quite tasty. The atmosphere was lively, loud, and a nice place for a quick hangout with some... More

I really like this place. Food is good, prices are really small. It's always overcrowded and noisy but it is "bistro" so you have to expect it. Best choice (see photo) - is pork escalope (140 rub.), mashed potatoes (35 rub) and vegetables (20 rub), yes in Russia you have to pay for each position separately. And beer 0.5 Vasil'eostrovskoe...

Restaurant was quite full so it was hard to find a free table. It seems very popular place for tourists and locals to visit. Food was good for russian standards. They have english menu which was nice but service was poor and little bit rude. It seemed they were afraid to serve in english. I could go and visit there... More

Nice interior, food at discount prices, but of really great quality. The portions are huge, and you can order just half of it - at half price. Cherry beer!

Nice place, pleasant music, fast and fair service, cheap but fair food. Good for students, backpackers; for those, who don't want to spend much time and money on food, but prefer not fast-food.

Terrible place just from the door! Clowds of tobacco smoke and overcrowded with a noisy youth. Perhaps, it's good for students, but not for families with children.

Simple, cheap but great food. You should try the Russian pancakes and the fish soup here. Ask for the English menu.

This place was crowded every night and offers a menu with cheap dishes. The service was good enough, but the food comes straight from the microwave. Don't go here for good food, but watch the Petrozavodsk youth. There is a terrace, but unfortunately it was not opened when we were here.
