Excellent zakuski -- muksun, herring, other northern Russian ware, duck liver pate, kholodets. Tasty fish and meat dishes (deer shashlyk was great, as was venison, and fried muksun). Khrenovukha (vodka spiced with horseradish) was superb. The restaurant has a veranda overlooking the Volga/Oka rivers with...excellent view. Service a little slow. Interior is rustic (typical Expeditsiya style). Overall great place for a vodka party with zakuski.More

Careful not to order too much food here. The menu is in english with photos, and the photos look very much like the dishes.. All is very tasty and the service is "excellent" in Russian standards. Still slow and you get your order a little...wrong, but that is part of the experience :-)More

Great Siberian food, would I have known it? No. It’s fine food based on local and traditional ingredients, principally game meat and frozen fish. Many food and drinking options based on a wide selection of wild berries. The service was especially kind and patient, they...explained everything to us in detail and made he ordering and eating a perfect experience.More

We had a very good dinner at Ekspeditsiya sitting outside at the veranda overlooking Volga and a nice sunset. The menue gives you a good opportunity to try fish, meat and game from around Russia. We tried a number of local fish as starters, and...then everything from dumplings to fish and meat for dinner. Very good food, especially the fish. Nice vodka and infusions as well as reasonably good wine made it a very nice dinner. Our waiter spoke excellent English which also was great since we could get a lot of interesting information about the food we had. Recommended!More

This restaurant was fantastic. My husband and I went here based on reviews, and they were spot on. The decoration follows the "Ekspeditsia" idea - everything looks rough and outdoorsy, lots of maps. But the tables are nice and the chairs are quite comfortable. The...food is fantastic. First, they brought us a bread basket. I have lived in Russia for 6 years and this is the FIRST TIME I have received a free bread basket. The braed was delicious. We drank their homemade mors - both cranberry and bilberry and it was also great. Over the course of our four day stay we ate here twice, and therefore managed to eat quite a lot. Therefore, we can personally recommend: the deer sausage, duck salad, wild boar, wildfowl and deer burger. The only minus is thinking too hard about what you are eating. I couldn't order the moose, even though it's probably also great.More

One of the best meals of my life. Worth every rubel. And the service was quick and excellent and there was even live music with nice old soviet songs. I'll be back the next time I'll be in Nizjnij Novgorod.

The restaurant it self by the scenary and all decoration already give you a good kick off as soon as you enter you are already somewhere else far far away from Nizhny Novgorod. Very nice decoration . Then arrive the service , so professional and...good advise very well trainned present but not pushy just what is needed to be confortable and never wait for anything. The food by itself is good taste , well prepared and so different that you can again travel in some very far away region of Russia , for me it was a really perfect experience , my best experience in Russian restaurant. Thank you and keep the level high even if the price are a bit higher than average but I was anyway very nicely surprise by the very acceptable level of the bill compare to qualityMore

Very good choice of Siberian specialities well presented. Seating is available in a verandah with a good river view. The prices are definitely on the high side.

High quality Siberian food, good choice of fish and meat, interesting decorations and touristic songs - its all create unique atmosphere and let you feel yourself somewhere in the middle of taiga - but comfy and with amaizing river views.
