The literal translation of Korovabar is 'Cow Bar' so it's no surprise that steaks are the house specialty. They were cooked to perfection and delicious. Don't be put off by the restaurant being located within a Holiday Inn, the restaurant offers much better food than you would typically find in a hotel restaurant. The fit out and ambience in the...

Had an excellent business lunch at Korovabar. Steaks were tasty and perfectly well cooked and service perfect. Decor was nice and modern and I felt I could have been back home in the US. Learned the meat came from Russia and was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and tenderness

On The 2nd floor of Holiday Inn Hotel, this is a very good option. The menu has the usual variety of Russian, Italian and international cuisine adapted to the type of costumers you may find here. The spinach soup is very good, as well as the pelmeni (less interesting) and the minced beef. You can also taste eastern Russian food,... More

I have never saw there some people from outside the hotel. So it is generally boring there. Probably the hotel should think about better parties line-up

Expensive, but decent meat and reasonable service. In the Holiday Inn, so very handy if you're staying there!

great food and decor, very good service. I'd recommend trying almost any dish - steaks were really good and so does the interpretation for local food. Actually the only "issue" is the price.
