Sophisticated on the inside, the restaurant has a light, peaceful and quiet veranda – a great place for dates or business and private meetings. Here, branded Moët & Chandon tablecloths look harmonious with trunks of trees that seem right in place, resonating with wicker furniture and the overall color palette of the interior. The service is on point as well. In the menu fresh Italian salads appear next to traditional Russian soups, Mediterranean fish, farmer’s poultry, selected marble steaks and Caucasian shish kebabs. Plenty of choice to satisfy any craving.

Pivnoy sad (Beer Garden)
The summer veranda of Ratskeller restaurant, Pivnoy Sad has become an independent beer garden inspired by Bavarian traditions. Among many summer dishes, the place serves German beer, grilled sausages and Baltic smelt, as well as grapefruit shoferhoffer and sea-buckthorn beer (which is very Ural-like in itself). The summery interior resembles a greenhouse with canaries singing during the week, and light DJ music on the weekend evenings.
