It’s a typical Russian place with a typical national menu!!! Five of us found it pretty nice place to go, especially being so close to the Catherine palace!!! The fact that President Putin had his birthday celebration in 2000 made us all especially curious about...this place! Definitely recommend to those who favors Russian cuisine... and President Putin!More

We stopped there for lunch on the way from Pushkin to Petergof. It's a nice place decorated just like an old Russian village, but it's very touristy for my taste. We were only people sitting outside and that was great. Most likely due to an...enormous amount of foreign tourists inside service was pretty bad and slow. Food was very good. We ordered marinated mushrooms, saur cabbage, olivie, pirogies, solyanka, venison tartar, bear katleta. I think my least favorite was bear katleta.More

Lovely little find after visiting the Catherine Palace. There are a ton of vegetarian options which was so appreciated! Highly recommend the paprika pickled in honey. Sounds different but was fantastic. Outdoor terrace is lovely on a sunny day. Live music setting up just as...we were leaving, unfortunately. Would highly recommend if in the area!More

Today we had lunch in this perfect restaurant. Decoration is very typical and the atmosphere is amazing. On top of this the attention of the staff is unbelieavable. Specially Mr Aleksey Galochkin and Margarita Mirashnikova have taken very good care of our group of 50...persons. They are very professional and deserve best praises and compliments. I also want to sat that I had the best crispy duck im my life there (Aleksey recomendation!!)More

We had lunch at this restaurant at the suggestion of our local guide. The restaurant was filled with crowds who had arrived on tour busses, but our family found a quiet table in a pavilion which was covered but open. There were blankets to help...warm us. I asked for a traditional, multi-course Russian dinner which was very reasonably priced and served family style. With drinks included, this was a great value. The service was excellent, the meal well-presented, and we could not have been more pleased. The entire place was more a museum than a restaurant, and the well-kept and beautifully landscaped grounds had many photo-worthy places of interest. Excellent introduction to Russian cuisine and culture!More

We had a group lunch, which was a little flat compared to the previous times when I came here. Wine and vodka were abundant, service good. This is a place which serves 500 + 500 meals a day.

We were at this restaurant with a huge group.The foods are traditional and good enough.It is located in Pushkin town which is very beautiful , very good nature all around..There is good music, again traditional and the singers are very qualified.But it is not very...good that they come to tables to sell cd and some instruments played which are already sold at the shop when you go out .Every one can buy when leaving the restaurant if they want.Also the waiters are not polite as they did not allow us to take a glass from the tables when we were having fun in the garden of the restaurant .They said you can not take the glass because we are closed! We could not take a glass to drink water from the table! In fact we were still in the garden and it was just a glass we wanted to take.It was not a polite manner and not acceptable for a restaurant!More

Went to the restaurant en route to Catherines Palace. Large buildings build from wood. Lots of tables. Staff smart. Had the Borscht soup which was tasty, followed by traditional Beef Stroganoff. Very tasty and filling. Washed down with a large Baltica 7 beer. Well recommended...and worthy of a visitMore
