We have eaten here twice so far during our Samara visit - both for dinner. It's the rainy season so we had plenty of staff attention. It's nicely decorated, tons of seating space, bar area, cooling ceiling fans that also keep the bugs away (something...More

The food was very fresh and tasty. The staff especially the manager Steve were super friendly. On our first visit Steve noticed I was interested in watching the US Open that each time we came back he turned tennis on the TV nearest us.
