Moderately priced; quite good selection of Russian food. Somewhat touristy; most of the other guests in the dining room were Asian, including a large Korean group and a smaller Chinese party.

Rassolnik is a brilliant place to eat and enjoy an evening. As we arrived a lady in a 1950s style dress was singing beautifully and we were welcomed in to sit down. The menu was very clear with high quality photographs and English translations. The...More

It was a fine dinner at Rassolnik when I visit Irkutsk on May 2017. It was well decorated with warm home feel. The service was good while they recommended me for great dishes.

The meal was excellent with great service. They do have an English menu and the staff also speaks English. I ordered their special soup, salad, veal tenderloin and dessert...all well prepared and cooked just right. The prices are very responsible.

Located in the very heart of the Irkutsk city centre the place where despite modern influences the cozy and comfortable Soviet apartment still exists. Restaurant "Rassolnik" offers exceptional cuisine while you have a chance to feel the history here. Every interior detail is the museum exhibit which you can even touch or hold in your hands. The two restaurant halls present the most prominent attributes of Soviet flat: an old piano, a wooden rocking horse, the bust of Lenin and etc... The good old Soviet films are shown on a "Rubin" TV set and when it's off the guests are treated with the timeless music of everybody's beloved films. The restaurant menu also matches the Soviet times: the dressed herring, the chicken Kiev and of course the three kinds of Rassolnik - all homemade recipes. Moreover, the signature feature of the restaurant and its merit are dishes cooked with Baikal omul, cisco, grayling and assuredly with wild fowls. "Rassolnik" has special "Farm menu" which offers meals prepared only with eco-friendly products from local farmers. Restaurant "Rassolnik" recreated the atmosphere of an intelligent soviet family flat in the seventies. If you want to become better acquainted with peculiarity of that time, please come and have a look. Before entering the door close your eyes and leave the noisy century behind. Inside you will meet friendly neighbors and homemade food. Welcome to "Rassolnik"!
