This is a great little French Restaurant in Omsk with its wonderful setting and really friendly atmosphere. The staff look really look after you, even bringing me an english menu before I had even asked for one.
Favorite Dish: Try the chicken dishes there really tasty.
Old Omsk - This was the only restaurant I went to during all of my time in Omsk. The rest of the time was spent at friends apartments.
Clean, good prices, good food.
Favorite Dish: Everything was good. I had a great goulash-type dish. It ended up being under $20 for the five of us...unbelievable.
This was a very nice but casual restaurant right on the "main drag" very near one of several "shopping malls" (fully enclosed, multi story malls seem to be the "norm" in Russia from what I saw in Omsk, N. Novgorod and Yekaterinburg.) It certainly makes perfect sense, public transportation is thje primary means for most people to get around so the "malls" are in the center of the city rather than the "subrubs".
Very nice "ambiance".
Favorite Dish: They have a large varity of Italian style selections. Lasagna, veggiatarian or "carnivor", Pizza, sagehetti etc.
This was a real "local hang out", the prices where VERY Russian 180 rubles for more chicken , beef or pork than you alone could eat, all roasted on a skewer over an outdoor charcoal pit with onions, tomatos (perhaps Zucchini slices, ?? I am unsure just what the "veggey" was, but it was WELL cooked no matter what it was or where it was prepared!)
Favorite Dish: FOOD in all capital letters was the "menu", if you don't speak, read Russian make sure you have someone with you who does, besides, that might well be the ONLY way you will find it!! A very eclectic crowd to say the least, from bikers, to sports casual, to business suits, it is ALL there.
While in Omsk I had the opportunity to dine at various restaurants. While most of the restaurants I dined at were Russian, I did also go to Czech and Georgian restaurants also.
The restaurants in Omsk were comparable (and sometimes better) to the restaurants in my home city (Los Angeles).
The quality of the food was very good and the portions were quite reasonable. I was mostly fond of the Russian cuisine.
I had heard stories about restaurants the were not clean and about small portions of food. That was not the situation in any of the restaurants i went to and none of them had "Soviet" service (meaning bad service by rude waiter/waitresses).
The service was very good, the people were friendly and the food was just fine with much of it being very tastey! :)
Favorite Dish: I hope I spell these correctly :)
Hmmm.... and a few others I don't remember the names of...
NOTE: The prices varied depending upon the restaurant.
This isn't a restuarant, but a nice place to relax and have a drink, if it isn't winter. On the opposite side of the bridge that leads to the shopping area of downtown is an outdoor covered area.
Sitting along the river drinking beer...nice.
Favorite Dish: I recommend beer over the mixed drinks, as the mixed drinks are those pre-made canned drinks (see photo).
Favorite Dish: We only went there for coffee and deserts and what a good idea that was. Pancakes with strawberries and cream was really good....!
We came here a few times and its probably the best place for tea's and coffee's along with such wonderful food.
