If you are looking for a place with its own distinct vibes, where legends are revived and traditions are honored, with a cozy, warm and loving atmosphere — Onegin Dacha is the place to go.

Traditional Russian dishes with a hint of French flavor are served in the atmosphere of an old manor, with wooden beams, peculiar lamps, samovars and teapots, queerly figurines and classical portrait sculptures. The interior is sophisticated, yet accented with cute details. It’s upscale, but not uptight.

Onegin Dacha works perfectly for any occasion — a get together of friends, a business dinner, a wedding, a family gathering, a birthday celebration, you name it.

You’ll certainly feel at home in any of the three rooms, whether in the library, fireplace room or winter garden. Large windows overlooking the street and veranda, a wall of moss, birdcages and antique pieces — it feels as if a Pushkin’s novel was recreated by fastidious designers to transport the guests right into the 19th century.

Treat yourself to classic and reinvented Russian and European dishes — red caviar served on a toast with butter (≈$13), pickled veggies and mushrooms (≈$6), veal stroganoff with wild mushrooms and mashed potatoes (≈$10), beef Burgundy with porto and cloves sauce (≈$12). Early birds can stop by and have a cup of fresh coffee with restaurant’s special syrniki and fresh pastry.
