This cafe is located in one of the most beautiful 19th-century buildings tucked away in the city’s historical center. This area, though can’t be referred to as posh, definitely oozes an authenticity that will take you back to the olden days Rostov. The cafe itself is also quite intriguing. Once you enter, you will notice an old bicycle and an interior inspired by the many bistros found in Paris, yet with a hint of both Russian and British influence. The ground floor is more of a restaurant, while the first floor — resembling a huge wine cellar — is a cafe bistro. Here, the menu seems to be a mix of different cuisines, styles and traditions – you’ll see pizzas, risotto, pasta, and burgers neighboring duck confit, ajapsandal (Georgian root vegetable dish), Caesar salad with shrimps, oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, set of pickles for beer, and all kinds of desserts on the list.
Delicious food is already a reason to be happy and when it’s beautifully plated, it is even more so — and this is exactly what you can expect here. Some dishes, like farmer’s burger (≈$4), Donburger (≈$5), salad with farmer’s beef and baked potatoes (≈$4), Don silver carp steak with mashed potatoes and creamy horseradish (≈$5), or borshch with farmer’s beef (≈$4) are marked as ‘local’, giving the chance to sample local produce for quality. Other noteworthy choices are the Bambola pizza with smoked chicken (≈$3), wild salmon with mashed potatoes and pesto sauce (≈$7), and chef’s duck fillet with bulgur and veggies (≈$6). The service is friendly and prompt — the waiters are always ready to answer your questions, give recommendations, and comment on the ingredients and the portion sizes.
Cozy, warm and relaxing, Bulvar is a place with its own style and atmosphere, welcoming service, delicious food, and reasonable prices.
