A duet of a chef who studied at Le Cordon Bleu Academy and a sommelier from Moscow is a sure sign that there is a lot to forward to in this venue. The prices are a pleasant surprise for the high-quality dishes made with the freshest ingredients. There is an in-house bakery, and breakfast is served as early as 8 AM (until 12 PM on the weekdays, and until 2 PM on the weekends). Excellent coffee is available for takeout, so don’t pass Gavrosh by on your stroll through Rostov even if you’re not looking to sit down for a meal. We do suggest that you come by when you’re hungry, though, and experience both the classics, like French onion soup or chateaubriand and the original specialties, such as the rillettes that are really worth your attention. Guests keep coming back for chicken liver rillettes with wild porcini and apple slices, and the tuna and bean rillettes specifically.
The wine selection deserves a special note since it has been awarded the highest grade in Russian Wine Awards. Besides offering very extensive ‘by the glass’ selection (over 20 kinds, ≈$6-9) the wines by the bottle will equally spoil for choice. There’s quite a variety ranging from noteworthy local wines from the Rostov and Krasnodar region to the famous and lesser-known international brands.
The interior is that of a classic French bistro — executed in brownish warm colors with huge windows, charming floor tiles, and a spacious summer terrace. The service is also immaculate, so your dining experience in Gavrosh is guaranteed to be a delight.
