“Yummy food by St. Isaak's square”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Walking down Admiralteysky Prospect with friends while touring the city, we were invited to try the new restauran that just opened there. A bit tucked away in between the terraces of two other restaurants - not easy to spot if it wasn't for two pretty and chatty waitresses who were standing outside the restaurant to invite the guests in. We decided to give it a try. And were very pleasantly surprised. Warm inviting atmosphere. Lounge music and...some really good food!

It is a great place to taste favorite home made Russian and Georgian cuisines. You won't see any clay pots or anything "authentic" here. The dinnerware is cool and food presentation is moden. Food is seasoned just right so you can taste every ingredient in your dish and know that it's fresh. The Chef himself came out to serve us the main course. We had a little chat and he told us that they only use farm raised poultry and meet here - leaner and healthier produce. Chicken soup with rooster meat is to die for. Don't forget to pair it with khachapuri bread...Yummy!
We felt very welcome here like at friend's place.
Staff is very attentive and speaks English (not all of them thou...), but very helpful for my English-speaking friends.
Highly recommend this place if you are in town.
