I Disappointed: I had spoken well of this restaurant, in fact cataloged as the best in Gomel, but the reality is different. Very bad service, food many potatoes and vegetables and little content.

Loved the authentic decor from the Soviet era. The service and food was great. We enjoyed very traditional Belarusian and Russian cuisine. There was something for everyone and very good.

A very nice place that is opened till 1 a.m. Has lounges for smokers and no smokers. Very good fish dishes, but avoid khachapuri. For foreigners who want to taste the USSR food. Recommend!

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The setting is of all things from the time of the USSR. There is an extensive menu (available in English) and the service and food are of a very good standard. If in Gomel, you can't not eat here!
