Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A blast from the past from this restaurant. It transferred me back in time to the good old Soviet days. Great hospitality from Misha, Daria and Igor the owner. There were some culinary delights, affordable and very tasty. I can fully recommend!

Great restaurant with a very cozy outdoor area. Very quite but central location. Friendly and helpfull staff, wide range of dishes, I've tried a lot of them. Music from the 80ies, even wishes were considered, live music on the Fridays. Many decor from that time,...with a Buchanka as my favorite. While 10 day stay in Tiraspol I went there daily twice, spent a lot of hours there. That I was in then end staying in Pridnestrovie 6 days longer than planned, was pobably as well caused by the CCCP restaurant next to my hotel.More

Friendly staff, good range of food. I visited several times and tried a range of dishes. Great decor and things from the era, also some things for sale. Worth a visit, even if just for a look around and a drink!

This is by far the best and most authentic restaurant in Tiraspol. If you ever visit Pridnostrovie, you simply must visit this place and have a meal. They have a wide variety of foods and their vodka is excellent as well!

We arrived by cab from Chisinau for dinner. We had barely any cash in our pockets but were able to get an amazing meal and beers for two for just over 10 euros. The restaurant owner was super welcoming and friendly and chatted with us...about his extraordinary life and travel experiences. The vibe and décor of the place made for an excellent Transnistria experience. Happy that they offered their cardboard coins and souvenirs to purchase. Overall one of the highlights of our trip!More

This restaurant is furnished like an apartment as it looked like 40 years ago, back in the Soviet era, our guide said that she could recognize a lot of stuff from her grandmother's home. They offer a lot of different tasty, nostalgic courses from the...Moldavian, Ukrainian and Russian kitchen. Food is simple, authentic and very well prepared, and the prices are VERY affordable. There is also a big variety in beverage possibilities beer, juice, wine). The waiter was friendly but somehow a little distant too. If you go to Tiraspol, you MUST visit this place, if not for the food, then for the amazing interior.More

This restaurant was the perfect way to end our short trip to Tiraspol. Every part of the restaurant and menu had so much charm and radiated the quintessential modern Soviet appeal that most Tiraspol tourists are looking for. We happened to go on Valentines day...and found the entire restaurant was decorated with hand cut hearts and decorations, showing the genuine care the staff puts into the restaurant. The authentic soviet dishes and restaurant decor made it such a unique experience, which was only made better by kind staff and great food at very affordable prices. If in Tiraspol, you must go try this restaurant!! Thank you so much to the lovely staff who made us feel at home!More

Great little restaurant in Tiraspol. We were only here as part of a day trip so our options were limited menu-wise. Food was hot and tasty and the staff were helpful. Enjoyable visit.

Authentic soviet dishes that are absolutely delicious and served with care and attention. Igor, the owner, was incredibly friendly and took time to explain the dishes and helped me choose. I ate Borscht, which was seasoned to perfection and tasted delicious. Followed this with Pork...and Tiraspole cucumber which was equally good. The food was very reasonably priced and cheap considering the ambience, quality and level of service.More

On Sunday 3 October 2020 I visited this restaurant together with friends. The welcome was warm and it felt like we were with friends. The food contained an extra ingredient and that was love. We enjoyed chicken dishes especially Chicken Kiev. Chicken in a crispy...layer with cheese. Then a surprise of three different desserts. The service was smooth and good. We enjoyed the hospitality. Next time we will come back for sure.More

Went for a wedding and a couple of days to Moldova, and decided to do a daytour to Transnistria. We asked tour guide to take us to a nice food place with local food. We ended up in this absolute gem. Staff couldn't be nicer,...the owner told us stories about his travels, all with traditional music on the background. Awesome people and awesome food. I will defo go back next time I visit this awkward but lovely and spotless clean country.More
