Russian cuisine is a very capacious concept. There is an old traditional Russian cuisine with pancakes, pies and kissel (jelly). And there is Russian cuisine which took shape much later. In this sense, dumplings, olivier (Russian salad) and beef Stroganoff are Russian meals too. We have compiled a selection of restaurants in which anyone will be able to get acquainted with all facets of Russian national cuisine.
The design of the restaurant is based on the style of a Russian dacha. Many bright and pastel tones— sand, lilac, turquoise – are used in the interior. Porcelain painted with traditional floral designs and walls decorated with frescoes with images of berries and fruits will certainly draw your attention. Decorative woodpile is placed at the entrance and it brings associations with a warm and rustic home. Guests are accommodated in four halls. The menu consists of traditional Russian dishes cooked according to old recipes from various regions of Russia (from Siberia to Rostov and Arkhangelsk regions), a variety of homemade berry juices and interesting wine list.
