We came here after the ballet but it was attached to our hotel so very convenient. There wasn’t a lot of atmosphere as perhaps 9.30 is not very busy.Everything was delicious and the Russian dumplings are excellent.

We stopped here for a light meal in the late afternoon and enjoyed it. The place is clean and cozy. The service is very friendly. And the food was tasty. They also have a reasonable selection of wine. The cuisine is modern Russian.
