We are a New Zealand couple in our 60's and we found this a perfect restaurant for a delicious, reasonably priced meal in attractive surrounds.

This was not a bad experience, but my food was a little on a salty side. Prices in this restaurant are slightly higher that the average in Novgorod. Stuff is very helpful and friendly. Good location.

we had one meal here. We were very impressed by the menu (wide range of dishes), also there are several different rooms with different ambiance. The food we ate was excellent, service very good. Cost was reasonable for the quality. It is very close to the central citadel (Kremlin).
