Just located at the historic part of the city and you can arrive at the restaurant by bus. There is a good variety of food and the price is reasonable, about 1200 Ruble for a 4 courses dinner. The food is satisfactory but the staff can be more hospitable, especially the old lady who looks a kind of snobbish.....

This is unusual type of Russian restaurant featuring interiors "like at home". Russian homes now are probably smaller, but looking back for about one and half century, meaning homes of Russian aristocracy - this is just of right size. A Russian visiting this restaurant may have a good check whether his home cuisine is really authentic one. May be this... More

Great restaurant in old fashioned style. You feel like you visit a merchants house of the 19th century. Very tasty Russian food. Good price for the value and experience.

This restaurant is styled as from the end of 19th century. Very nice Russian food, I especially liked the decor of the restaurant. I was a bit disappointed by the city's main speciality, the Pozharskoy cutlet, as I've seen much prettier looking ones in Moscow and St. Petersburg. But I would still recommend it.

We had a wedding celebration dinner at Pyatkin and had a fantastic experience. The organization, food, design, presentation, service and communication were all excellent, and all our guest were happy. We returned to the restaurant for a dinner and were equally satisfied. The food is traditional Russian, with some rather unique options- beef stomach dish for example that was actually... More

A blond waiter -girl started shouting at my 1.5 year son. Scary moment to baby ! NOT A CHILDREN FRIENDLY place! It's sad, 'cause food was okeyish, but not best Russian Cuisine you can find. If you want to pay a lot and see not smiling waiters, who shout at you and your family, this is your place. Never again... More

Interior is lovely, cuisine is traditional Russian with pretty good variety of dishes. The only thing that spoils the place is horrible service. The waitresses are mean and not hospitable at all. The look at you with such as disgrace when u ask pretty standard things like split the bill or for additional chair. I also have to look for... More
