This spacious and luxurious round pavilion in a stunning well-tended Jardin Hotel garden is the perfect place for fine dining on Rostov’s Left Bank, a key leisure area of the city. Jardin restaurant is affiliated with the hotel, but anyone can come in for dinner, or to enjoy a range of available amenities — there are volleyball and tennis courts, a spa and banya complex and a swimming pool, all accessible by the restaurant’s guests. Oh yeah, we almost forgot the karaoke and the live jazz in the evenings! Even if you’re just here to have a meal, the panoramic view of a beautiful park and the relaxing interior will make your dining experience all the more pleasant. And, of course, it would be strange for a restaurant in the middle of a park not to have a summer terrace – so, enjoy the outdoor sitting as well.
The menu is a mix of Russian and European cuisine. It’s rather extensive, revolving mostly around classic dishes executed to perfection. Seafood, pasta, steaks, burgers, grills – you really can’t go wrong. Homemade lemonades (estragon/passionfruit is excellent) and a well-stocked full bar. Jardin is a favorite of the locals and they know their food!
