Best in town restaurant serving national food. Excellent cuisine, friendly service, interesting interior styled as belarusian countryside. You should definitely try pancakes in a ceramic pot and drinks (mors, kvass, mead, krambambula, zbiten) that they cook.

The selection of traditional Belarusian foods in the menu is really wide with many of them coming in a few different varieties. Everything we ordered was very tasty and the portions were huge (way above the average ones here in Belarus). On top of that the waiter guy was doing just great. The bill for the food feast for three... More

Nice place to understand what is Belarusian spirit! Atmoshere, music and food all is not like in a European style restaurant, but unique and very cosy. Would love to visit this place again! Menu is very big and even with nice vegetarian dishes!

We've been there once, ordered some fried potatoes and kluski. The food is very tasty, really authentic but too pricy for Belarus. You won't get a 3 EUR dish as you probably got used to get in Belarus. All prices here are Western European. But it's definitely worth it.

With local friends we didnt find out the English knowledge of the charming waitress in her traditional dress, while the English menu was helpful. The homemade drinks like Kvass and "homemade ciders" (+30%!!) are Highly recommended!! A selection of starters was nice. There are tasty side dishes for the main courses, which are already delicious garnished by two kinds of... More

This is probably the best place we ate during our 17 day holiday in Belarus. The food is hearty, tasty and 100% Belarusian! My draniki with pork was delicious and I washed it down with delicious local ale. The menu is huge and there is an English version too.
