“Belarus in miniature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

They really care. Exterior is amazing: they know what landscape design is. It's authentic place, and every detail inside points it. They even have a small house with real fireplace - choose it in cold winter evenings. Despite its location (in a suburb), Ptitch worth visiting. Especially good for companies or families.

“Ptich Restaurant full of character and local cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

Just north of Minsk on the river Ptich (meaning bird) and not far from the country museums, this reasonable priced restaurant features Belarusian country cuisine such as draniki, pancakes, different meats including hunting meats and fish and has a speciality of freshly smoked fish. The menu is a little humourous too, some adventurous people might like to try the entree/zakouski of "pigs ears". We found all the food there well prepared, tasty and of good quantity - its is good quality Belarusian cuisine and beer. It was not too expensive. There is quite an extensive drinks menu if you like that. They had an English menu if requested. Its very popular with the locals. The menu is on line as are the contact details - and that is already on the Trip Advisor website.

Visually and atmospherically it is very interesting - a country feel. There is a tank of large pike swimming as you go in. The restaurant is set in gardens with windy paths and decorated with agricultural implements and lots of flowers. near the entrance is a quirky fish smoker as one of the specialities is the smoked fish.

Scattered in the garden are little hideaway gazebo's or booths and small lodges with themes such as the hunters house, were we ate. That was decorated with old stuffed birds and animal heads and skins such as bear, pig, deer and hawks. Its atmospheric and great fun. There are roving musicians who play Belarusian folk music but also expertly played a beautiful Piazolla tango for us. Its a great place to take a group of people to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

More newly created is a swimming area that looks more Pacific Island than Belarus but would no doubt be a change for the locals from the rivers and lakes. It has a spa pool and small units that can be rented for a country retreat.
There is a website which seems to concentrate more on the new pool bar, you have to scout around the website to find the pics of the large garden area which would be a visitors highlight. We have gone there on several visits to Minsk and never been disappointed.
