    Very welcoming staff who were accommodating and friendly when one of our diners was an hour late. It was nice to not be made to feel pressured to start without them. Food was fresh and nice quality. Small menu but good flavours. Cocktails are a definite!

    Excellent service paired with a quirky interior, delicious range of dishes and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The concept/theme they have going is unparalleled in Adelaide. A unique experience, cannot recommend more.

    Very pleased to find this restaurant. The food and service were exceptional and was presented at just the right moment allowing me to catch up with a good friend who I had not seen for some time.

    The cocktails were interesting. The food wasn’t authentic aRusdian more like a hint of true. Russian cuisine. Prompt service and the correct discount added to the bill.

    We were very pleasantly surprised. The quality of food was excellent as was the service from all waiting staff. We were then encouraged to head downs stairs for a whiskey. What great experience!

    Good food and nice surroundings, overall an enjoyable evening. It was good to try Russian beer. Dumplings were the best dish. The ice cream flavours sounded good so will try next time.

    The atmosphere is relaxing and the service was friendly and efficient. The decor is rustic with wooden tables and hints at its Russian roots without going overboard. The same can be said for the menu. Excellent mainstream choices with a Russian flare.

    Great tasting food, and we could book early before the ballet. It was a bit empty when we were there, but imagine it has more ambience later in the evening!

    The waiter seemed a bit rude and snobby to us when we were ordering food and completely ignored us when we wanted to order more food. The lamb and pulled pork was really good but the trout was bland. Nice atmosphere

    The Russian style food is very special and well-prepared. The atmosphere in the bar is relaxed. The drinking list is definitely a plus!

    Great food and Wine - We chose the "Feed Me" option - Just tell the Chef your dietary preferences and she makes up a 3 course dinner for you , matched with 3 different wines ( 1 for each course) - Sensational! I suggest you try it. The White mousse with forest berries was unique and tasty.

    Really disappointed with the food and service on Saturday night. I had high hopes coming in, only to be met with entrees and mains which lacked almost everything. The oysters were small and still had bits of shell attached upon consumption, hence needed more thorough cleaning. And my 'Rainbow Trout' was nothing but bones. It was embarrassing for my dinner guests to see me pulling bones out of my mouth every second, and so there's not much I have to say on that. The dumpling skin was overcooked, and overall, all dishes lacked flavour and punch. The crepes were soft and fluffy, but adding anchovies, some dollop of cream, fish roe, and dill for presentation does very little to really help elevate the dish.

    Quiet for a Tuesday night, but good wholesome food enjoyed trying a new cuisine

    The only slight negative was the constant disruption of groups of guests (weren't sure if they're paying guests or some were walk through) from front door to the side dining room to check out what's beyond the door (which has fire hydrant handle as door knob) Other than that we were happy with the food, the services, dining room.. Happy to be back in the near future
