visited for lunch - do book ahead or you may be disappointed. There are different dining areas and levels from balacony to under-balcony and open large room. This is a log cabin style but with a character completely all of it's own. Popular with tourists...More

I love this Russian restaurant. All are Russian style, the building, the food, the music, the atmosphere, the staff in Russian traditional clothes….. I especially love the Borscht and the meat strip.

Live music upstairs was fun and added to the atmosphere. Our waiter spoke excellent English and was able to make recommendations for Russian food and wine. We tried the Borscht and beef stroganoff. One or the other would have been enough for a full meal....More
