Wasnt the first and definitely won't be the last time. Both of us were down with a flu and wanted a nice hot soup to end the day with. We both ended having 2 bowls of different choices, I had the Shurpa (Шурпа из Баранины) and the Mushroom soup with Smetana (Грибной со сливками) and my husband took also the Mushroom one and the Borsh. All of it was fantastic, full of flavor. The compote was refreshing too.
Service not always was good here, in the past, but things have improved. We were served almost instantly and every time needed something got it within a reasonable time.
A great place for lunch before heading to the beach too or after few hours in the sun..
Highly recommend it!
