The place and the food were very unique and interesting, and also not very expensive, I think it's a good value for money

One of my local acquaintances recommended us to visit this place. We decided to give it a shot. When we reached it, from outside it looked like a terribly posh and expensive place, we even considered leaving right away. Fortunately we went inside. I’ve been...to so many bars in my life in lots of cities and towns in Russia and 35 countries of the world, but this place is one of the nicest ones that I’ve ever been to. Interior, staff, furniture, drinks and food - everything is on a very high level. If we ever come back to Nizhny Novgorod this bar is definitely to be visited over and over again. To tell the truth I’m even jealous of the locals that they have such a place in their city.More

We spent the whole evening in Franky. Firstly disappointed with the need to stay at the counter, a barmen told us that it is actually the best place to go, so we decided to give it a try. Fabulous choice of whiskey, especially Scottish (and...I haven't seen many positions from the menu while studying in Edinburgh) was backed up by the best barmen squad I've ever met. There was a good chemistry's between the gentlemen, but it was the dialogue that was the precious part. Getting home, me and my friend ended up with broadened horizons in decent alcohol, a bit of Hemingway, and city itself. Yuri, if you are reading this, we are truly grateful not just for the island scotch. No visit here is complete without Frankie, and don't fear the counter.More

Staying in Nizhny Novgorod, Franky offered a great selection of cocktails, wine and a good menu to enjoy a night out. The selection was excellent, the theme, ambiance and craftmanship with a dedication to Sinatra really came through in this restaurant and made a good...night out with my Fiancee who was returning to Nizhny after 6 years away.More

We visited this venue during a weekend trip to Nizhny Novgorod. The staff was very attentive and the cocktails were prepaired with meticulous attention. Their selection of beers was rather small and expensive, so for a second drink, I resorted to their cocktails instead. The...hostess inadvertedly served one our mains with the starters, but she was very apologetic when we made them aware of the error. We most certainly appreciated their excellent resolution. The food was very delicious. Certainly a 5 out of 5 recommendation to visit.More

Don’t miss Franky on your visit to Nizhny Novgorod. Everything here is excellent: food, cocktails, service, and atmosphere. Our meal started with hearty slices of white bread and rye bread accompanied by a mushroom compound butter and a creamy Parmesan spread. Throughout our meal it...was apparent that the food was on point, from the poached egg with a silky smooth yolk to the light, creamy, and perfectly seasoned mushroom soup. We are coming back before we leave Russia.More

This place is fabulous although Google and TripAdvisor say that it's closed at 12am, but it closes at 2am most nights. On Fridays and Saturdays, it closes between 3 and 4am. Our bartender was very helpful, honest, and interested in us. It appears that there...will always be someone that understands/speaks English well enough to communicate with anyone else that speaks a little English. Delicious drinks, wide variety of cocktails. Moderate variety of wines. Not a huge variety of beer.More

Positive: wide choice of drinks, antipasti plate is very well composed and sufficient even for two:) Negative: service inattentive and unfriendly. Got a dirty tee cup and asked for replacement. There was no excuse or any other reaction from the waitress... Could be better.
