The staff at Velgar are friendly and efficient and the steak meal was nicely cooked and presented. A varied menu, which probably warrants further investigation on a subsequent visit...

Polished service and excellent pork. Why bother with fast food in a country where food is direct from the land. Just do it. Not bad from a Paddy where meat is d biz.

I have taken the dinner with a friend of mine today there. No room for non smokers, however the ventilation is pretty good and the smell is almost missing! No noise: a relaxant atmosphere for talking. The waiter speaks English. The meal was good and served pretty fast. The only thing I wondered is that the waiter didn't bring me... More

Despite this rather odd suggestion, the food was good and the price was reasonable. The menu is varied with some interesting innovations (like a sushi menu). The salted tomatoes are an experience. This restaurant won't win prizes for local specialities, but it is fine for a simple, well cooked meal. Terrace is nice and the waiter was kind enough to... More

Good option if you are staying at Jazz or Leogrand hotel. Variety of European and Russian cuisine. Its chicken breast with cheese and mushrooms was delicious.

We were 7 people to celebrate our company's birthday at Velgar. According to high ratings in Internet and cool pics I was expecting a really nice party in a nice place. Well, the service was awful. We had to wait forever to get our order. Maybe they have a tiny kitchen with the only burner? The waiter could not tell... More

Located in the center, best choice if you stay at Leogrand. The athmosphere is quiet and relaxing, the service is very good, the food is tasty even if the fish lacked a little bit of salt&peper.

This place offers very nice European style fare and some great local food that is a cut above the norm. Very pleasant modern yet comfortable interior. Good service. Good for a small business dinner, especially given its location. Highly recommend
