“We always enjoy visiting Ramsgate, most of all because of CCCP”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This was our second weekend stay in Ramsgate, booked because the first time we stayed, we ate at CCCP and couldn't wait to go back.
I don't know anything about East European food, so I can't comment on authenticity, but I can say that the menu has a wide selection and that everything we have eaten there has been exceptional.
On this occasion, we had smoked sausage soup & beet root soup, wild boar fillets and meat dumplings in mushroom sauce and honey & another cake I can't remember the name of, but it was like custard slice in cake form.
On our previous visit, we'd had dumplings and the portion was so massive, it was bordering on ridiculous, so we were slightly disappointed to find the 'large' portion is now barely a meal on its own, but we shared that and the wild boar (which was a large portion) between us and it was just right. The dumplings were only £4 though, so a 'starter' portion is about right.
It was all completely delicious and the staff very friendly and attentive.
The beer and pina colada cocktail were great too.
The entire meal, including drinks, came to £40, so was excellent value too.
We'll definitely be back and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for something a bit different.

“cccp-the place to be...and to eat a delicious food”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I visited a CCCP restaurant with my friends as really missed our traditional russian food and must admit we found it very tasty, as it would be a homemade!..Big choice of meat, fish,soups and salads for any taste...delicious cakes ( especially i loved a honey cake) and the whole atmosfere made us feel like home. Plus prices are very decent and you really getting what we call a good value for your money!
I would reccomend a CCCP for anyone who want to spend a pleasant evening in a cosy envronment with friends or partners on a special occasion or without...Definitely going to come back!

“Return visit”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Restaurant CCCP has become a regular stop for us when we visit Ramsgate. The quality of the food is excellent and the staff very friendly. Today we visited for drinks and cake only. I had the Russian honey cake which was absolutely delicious. My son (13) had a plate full of blini with chocolate sauce which lasted around 30 seconds!!!

Great time, as ever.

“A unique experience: cakes & ale Russian style”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This place is something of an oddity in the heart of the somewhat faded seaside resort of Ramsgate, near the Asda supermarket where you can park for two hours but no longer. The CCCP claims to be an authentic Russian restaurant but is actually run by a Lithuanian / Belorussian couple with help from relatives. Their cakes and beers are particularly renowned. The menu was quite extensive but lacked some traditional favourites such as blini with caviar (they did have blini & they did have caviar, but the waiter seemed reluctant to put the two together). There are Lithuanian specialities such as the gob-stopping Zeppelins but these take about 45 minutes to prepare so it’s best to ring in and order them in advance. The ‘dumplings’ were a disappointment, not at all like the Siberian Pelmeni I was expecting: they were tough as old leather (see the remains in the background of the photo), and the white salad was nothing special. Roast wild boar wrapped in smoked bacon with rice was excellent (see photo), but the ‘wild boar stew’ which my partner chose was in a curious sweet & sour sauce and contained very little meat. Service was attentive and talkative, but there were few other diners at the time when we visited. The bill for two time two courses and drinks came to just under £40 which was reasonable. Worth trying if you have not been there before.

“Authentic Soviet”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Knowing Russia well, this was like an absolutely authentic restaurant of the Soviet area - the food was dire and there are no words in English to describe the service.
Friendly people. Pleasant place to get drunk and party. But don't eat vthe food.
