Came at 6 pm. Told not serving dinner until 7. Ordered a bottle of wine. At 7 server took order. At 8:00 server came back to take our order again. Finally got the food. Salmon bilini rolls had no salmon, apparently the cook forgot the most important ingredient. They then brought out a plate of salmon, apparently for us to... More

It was cold and wet and dark and rainy and we needed some Russian food. Paris has some very fine choices, but Maison du Caviar was just too far away, and Caviar Kaspia far too expensive for our mood. Ikra was the closest option. Suffice to say it's not your typical Parisian/Russian restaurant. There's Pirojki, Blinchiki, Chachlik and caviar. And... More

The waitress was charming - the best thing about the restaurant for us. Having hoped for some Armenian specialities or something a bit more interestingly Russian, we were disappointed in the limited choices. There were no wines available from either of those countries though we could have had vodka. The quality of the food was good but the portion sizes... More

With the reservation, we were very pleased to taste a new kind of brunch. To order was very long whereas the diner room was not full. The piano player was kind but she played too loud. As a result, it was difficult to keep on the conversation. The waitress is willing but overtakes by the events. She has forgottent to... More

All I can say is that the food is wonderful but the service lacks in many senses. No other language was spoken other than some french or russian (which wasn't that big of a deal) but I asked for a strógonoff that they only brought out when they came back to our table and asked me again after >>40 minutes<<...

I enjoyed a romantic dinner in this russian restaurant with of course russian music and serenade. Food was very good, vodka was a must and I recommand the Kiev style chicken together with the cucumber and yoghurt soup. Nice place to have a drink or eat. Not so pricey and meal for value.

Fantastic food with musical entertainment. I had Norwegian salad and fries. My wife had a salad with smoked salmon, tuna, shrimp and more; very fresh and tasty. The pianist played classical/folk mostly Russian and had a beautiful voice.

Description
Ikra is a Zakouskis bar ("tapas" in Russian) that serves continuously from noon to 23h. The idea of Hagop Markarian, former director in one of restaurants of Cyril Lignac and familiar of the Russian and Armenian culture, is to democratize the Russian gastronomy to make it more fun and accessible to all.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
