Went down the stairs on a weekend evening and it was busy. Reservations recommended, luckily they were able to squeeze us in. Full of tourists (obviously of which I am one), but how could you not love all the Soviet memorabilia? The place is really quite unique in its decoration. I couldn't take my eyes off the TV which was... More

來的時候應該是剛開店不久,也沒多少人。不過一進門就被那戴墨鏡的大爺嚇到,因為不知道他要幫我掛衣服,他又不會說英語。 I came here about the lunch time. They have a man with sunglasses to take care of your jackets when you came in, I was a little shock of this because I have no idea what he said in Russian. 侍應很有禮貌,給餐牌之前問了下我從哪裡來才給個對應的中文餐牌。然而,那個是機翻的餐牌…… The waiter is courteous. He asked where I came from before I had the menu. So as to... More

They squid salad surprised me. The squids are cut into very thin slices which gives a good texture. The Borsch is standard. Just too many beef in it. It almost becomes a main dish. The baked omul is quite a disappointment. It's much bigger in size than I thought. The meat is pale and it's stuffed with tomatos which I... More

I can hardly imagine a better place to enjoy one of my favorite soups, borscht. The menu literally filled with traditional, Russian delicacies, it's pretty hard to make the choice as you might feel the sudden urge to taste everything. All this, together with exceptional decoration, made me feel like being in the house of my Russian grandma that I've... More

This restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere, authentic Russian food and great service. The decor is old style memorabilia, they play old Russian classic movies or kid cartoons in the background. I've been many times and have taken all of my visiting family to this restaurant.

We were a Group of 16, there was virtually noone else, so should be a Perfect match for the Kitchen. But where do I start; They ran out of beer-glasses after first order, they were out of several main-courses, two ordered lamb cotelets medium rare that was totally overdone, etc etc. In all a disappointing experience; to be avoided.

That was the first time we tried Russian food and we would say the food here was really good! The taste was excellent and portion was appropriate as well. It might be a little bit touristic, but we did see many local ate here that time. Overall, this place is safe and recommended for those who are going to try... More

Description
Located in the very heart of the Irkutsk city centre the place where despite modern influences the cozy and comfortable Soviet apartment still exists. Restaurant "Rassolnik" offers exceptional cuisine while you have a chance to feel the history here. Every interior detail is the museum exhibit which you can even touch or hold in your hands. The two restaurant halls present the most prominent attributes of Soviet flat: an old piano, a wooden rocking horse, the bust of Lenin and etc... The good old Soviet films are shown on a "Rubin" TV set and when it's off the guests are treated with the timeless music of everybody's beloved films. The restaurant menu also matches the Soviet times: the dressed herring, the chicken Kiev and of course the three kinds of Rassolnik - all homemade recipes. Moreover, the signature feature of the restaurant and its merit are dishes cooked with Baikal omul, cisco, grayling and assuredly with wild fowls. "Rassolnik" has special "Farm menu" which offers meals prepared only with eco-friendly products from local farmers. Restaurant "Rassolnik" recreated the atmosphere of an intelligent soviet family flat in the seventies. If you want to become better acquainted with peculiarity of that time, please come and have a look. Before entering the door close your eyes and leave the noisy century behind. Inside you will meet friendly neighbors and homemade food. Welcome to "Rassolnik"!
