Went here on Tripadvisor recommendations and I was very glad we did. Even though it's not the usual kind of haute cuisine or luxurious restaurants I'm usually awarding five points, according to my experience, it would be unjust to give Karelskaya Gornitsa less.

We came here having an hour and something for a dinner. We told our waiter so and he assured us we wouldn't have to wait long. We tried soups and different mains, they were all really good, nice and light. Unfortunately they've ran out of elk and the bear would take too long to cook as we were warned. Due to the limited time we were thus unable to try these specialities. Oh but we tried the local samogonka, which was very nice.

Very nice place with a great homey feel and Carelian cuisine, great service and very fair prices, I was very happy with this find and would gladly recommend Karelskaya Gornitsa to anyone wanting a nice meal in Petrozavodsk.

The restaurant offers a great variety of local specialties, e.g. kvass (either traditional bread kvass or the one made with foxberry) and vodkas to dring and plenty of meat to eat - you can try deer, elk or a bear. The bear I've eaten was very good cooked!

Nice interior, very expensive price-list and very lazy service! Not worth to visit. Good food, but without extremely special local dishes (except local liquors). If you have an hour a a half waiting for a simple roast-beef - you are welcome!
