The atmosphere is nice, old style,and the service is great. Very friendly staff with good English. That said, I have to say that during lunch I was disappointed by the stroganoff: meat with full taste, nothing special. Desert was really good (creme brûlée). As starter I had black caviar and here comes the problem. Luckily, it was just 10g (very expensive, but that's the nature is this dish), because 4h later I started with stomach problems that made me come back to the hotel... No need to say that it was annoying (who wants to leave in the middle a visit?), uncomfortable and upsetting (as I spent 3,000 rublos to get sick).

Reservation required! The atmosphere is old time nostalgia - you get a silver bell to summon your waiter. There may be live piano music. Excellent menu "classic Russian" and an overall lovely dinning experience for those that enjoy a bit of tongue-in-cheek kitsch.

Food ok. Service terrible. Don't waste your money here. Go to Gosti across the street. God food. Great service. Air conditioning.

Our waiter was the highlight of the meal. He was amazing, hilarious, polite, friendly, and everything else you could ask for in a waiter. The feeling of the restaurant was quite touristy which I'm not a fan of but somehow it sort of worked. The chicken kiev, borscht, and fish were all good and gave a good feel of Russia but they were not to die for. This is a good restaurant if you want the feel of Russia back in the day but if you're after great food and somewhere locals eat than this is not the place for you. It's defiantly a restaurant I would recommend going to for the Russian vibe it radiates but it is by no means amazing.

We wanted to come here to have our anniversary dinner... Hotel staff said that it wasn't a good restaurant and diverted us to the other "classic Russian" restaurant in town (Severianin). Well... We came here for lunch and found that this is a much better place and actually it was really really good, starting from the interiors, to the service and the food. A bit pricey, but surely a great place to be.
