Cafés on the quay: Don't Miss "Isabella"!
You will find a lot of bars, restaurants and cafés on the quay. You will be able to try local young red wine “Isabella” which is sweet, tasty and cheap. With the great variety of “shashlik'” or shish kebab it will make you to fly on heaven, haha!
Lido restaurant: On the Beach of the Black Sea
The “Lido” restaurant is located on the beach not far from the Grand Hotel Zhemchuzhina.
We choose this restaurant for the Christmas party.
Cozy rattan armchairs, delicate scent of petunia in blossom and cool breeze from the sea – that’s what makes a haven of peace and serenity.
You will find delicious cuisine; a number of its dishes are cooked in tandoor clay oven and authentic German and Czech beer.
The menu abides in fish dishes: fresh produce, exotic flavors, oysters, lobsters. Meat fans will be offered bone-in lamb loin, flavorful shish kebab, juicy venison and other delicacies.

Dom 1934 (House 1934): Without competition the finest restaurant in Sochi
The owner obviously travelled a lot and got inspiration from all over Europe. Mainly a french theme. It's the only place in Sochi with proper Med flair in my opinion.
The food is highest quality. Try the lamb, it says on menu it's from New Zealand but it's from local farmer.
This is where I take my business visitors. Always pleasant experience. Different themed rooms available.
Favorite Dish: I should say lamb now writing my review above. But I go there for the Steak Alfredo. Great selection of wine too.

American Diner: No American Food at the American Diner
Don't waste your time eating at the American Diner which is situated at the Hotel Zhemchuzhina. Although they have done a pretty good job in making the place look like an American Diner the entire menu is Russian cuisine.
Favorite Dish: None
Piramida (Krasnaya Polyana): Unforgettable
REstaurant is located on the side of the ski lift and is very popular place in winter. AS well as that it's got a cascade of waterfalls, fish lake and a watermill in its courtyard with the picturesque view on the mountain range Aibga and the mountain called "Black Piramid". It offers authentic food able to sattsify different tastes. It also has good service and good value for money for the fine dining restaurant.
Favorite Dish: I like Duck from the barbeque, range of salads, king Trout (caught it the mountain river)
