It was a fine dinner at Rassolnik when I visit Irkutsk on May 2017. It was well decorated with warm home feel. The service was good while they recommended me for great dishes.

來的時候應該是剛開店不久,也沒多少人。不過一進門就被那戴墨鏡的大爺嚇到,因為不知道他要幫我掛衣服,他又不會說英語。 I came here about the lunch time. They have a man with sunglasses to take care of your jackets when you came in, I was a little shock of this because I have no idea what he said in Russian. 侍應很有禮貌,給餐牌之前問了下我從哪裡來才給個對應的中文餐牌。然而,那個是機翻的餐牌…… The waiter is...More

The link for the website on this page does not work properly from North America. I discovered that depending on the selected language, the restaurant's website can be accessed from: (Russian) рассольник.рф/ (Russian) рассольник.рф/menu (English) rassolnik.su/ I hope TripAdvisor will provide both the Russian and English links.

Если я что то не путаю, я слышала отзывы, что при ресторане есть игровая комната, в которой дети могут поиграть, пока взрослые общаются за столом?

Детей лучше отправить в Экспериментариум, это в двух шагах от Рассольника. А внутри игровую зону не видел, мы сидели в ближнем зале

Located in the very heart of the Irkutsk city centre the place where despite modern influences the cozy and comfortable Soviet apartment still exists. Restaurant "Rassolnik" offers exceptional cuisine while you have a chance to feel the history here. Every interior detail is the museum exhibit which you can even touch or hold in your hands. The two restaurant halls present the most prominent attributes of Soviet flat: an old piano, a wooden rocking horse, the bust of Lenin and etc... The good old Soviet films are shown on a "Rubin" TV set and when it's off the guests are treated with the timeless music of everybody's beloved films. The restaurant menu also matches the Soviet times: the dressed herring, the chicken Kiev and of course the three kinds of Rassolnik - all homemade recipes. Moreover, the signature feature of the restaurant and its merit are dishes cooked with Baikal omul, cisco, grayling and assuredly with wild fowls. "Rassolnik" has special "Farm menu" which offers meals prepared only with eco-friendly products from local farmers. Restaurant "Rassolnik" recreated the atmosphere of an intelligent soviet family flat in the seventies. If you want to become better acquainted with peculiarity of that time, please come and have a look. Before entering the door close your eyes and leave the noisy century behind. Inside you will meet friendly neighbors and homemade food. Welcome to "Rassolnik"!
