We went to this place because it was so high up on Tripadvisor. I dont really know why it is so high up in ranking though. The food was nothing more than OK. Place was nice but needed some upgrades to make it better. Location...More

The waiters here are really friendly and spoke good English. The menu is quite amusing - they've added in a page at the start apologising that, due to the price of cheese in Russia now, they can no longer offer Parmesan for free! The food...More
