For many years this restaurant was one of the most popular with high quality cuisine and at the very heart of the old centre of Odessa. Especially it impress when You sit outside near the fountaine in "Palais Royal" yard. But this time I was very dissapointed by "courses of national cuisine of Odessa" - I ordered salted sardelle with toasts, but the fish was preserved with specific taste op preserved sardelle. The level and history of this place let me expect to get real odessa's sardelle, but not that time. At the same time my friends were satisfied by grilled vegetables from the same menu.
