Croissant Cafe

Reviewed By Eugene E - Vilnius, Lithuania

We came here for breakfast and were delighted. The restaurant was modern and clean. The menu was very attractive and was available in English. The waiters were friendly and professional. The food was delicious. They also had a dinner menu, but we did not have an opportunity to return. Prices were higher than I would have expected, but the restaurant was very busy nonetheless.

Order the cold borsch here and they do excellent Deserts. Over the years the service has declined considerably, but overall they are still better than some of the newer places in town. Fairly inexpensive. 100 bucks for a family of four.

Hmel

Traditional Russian and Siberian cuisine dishes cooked from delicacies specially delivered from the North, from the Siberia and from the Far East.Please, notice the cuisine is not for vegetarians.In addition, there are 6 kinds of live beer of our own make. The industrial interior of "tsarist" Russia of the beginning of the 20th century with all-round views on the city`s main square. Low-profile instrumental music in the daytime. Romances, tango, violin, accordion and gipsies in the evening...

It seems there are no other restaurants that are as Russian and this one. If you are going for the Russian experience. I prefer the trio of fish eggs which I have not seen before on the menu. I had straganina as well. This is a Russian sashimi type of dish. It used to be poor man's food but has gained popularity in recent times.

Excellent location right at the Promenade. Nice cuisine: fusion of Russian, German and Lithuanian. Good service comparing to another Kaliningrad region restaurants. The only restaurant in Zelenogradsk having a friendly playground for the kids inside. The place is extremely popular during high season, tables are better to be booked in advance.

Parmezan

Reviewed By ManhattanVasya - New York City, New York

Fantastic food. Coming from New York where we eat out couple of times a week, Parmesan's food is absolutely stellar. Everything tasted great. We had 4-5 various appetizers( I would highly recommend salmon tar-tar with guacamole and tomatoes with mozzarella). For main course I had lamb stew in a pot and that was very fatty, but extremely delicious. Wine selection was OK, but I wouldn't expect them to carry Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio. Service was 4 stars. We didn't order their pizza, which looked very delicious and appeared that quite a few people were ordering it. You'll enjoy this place if you have kids. They have a play area with babysitters for kids(free of charge). I have been to a few Kaliningrad's restaurants and would designate this place as a 'must try'. Dinner with appetizers and wine for a family of 5 around a hundred bucks.

Ukrainian korchma in the heart of Kaliningrad! We invite residents and guests of the city to plunge into the cozy atmosphere and taste wonderful dishes of Ukrainian cuisine, because they cook like home, only better!

Reviewed By Phileas_Flogg - Oxford, UK

This is a themed restaurant which is part of a chain. So it's a bit kitsch and packaged but it's also fun; the food is tasty; and the staff do their best to help non-Russian/Ukrainian speakers understand the menu. Clearly popular with Kaliningrad youth, Borsch...MoreThanks for the tip, dear guest! Welcome soon.

During my first visit to Kaliningrad, i had the opportunity to visit this restaurant, to be honest it was one of the best experiences i've had abroad, i know it had something to do with the company that i had, but the ambient, candles, surroundings and food that made my evening unforgettable.
If you want to had a great evening with someone special, this is definitely the place to go, it's not cheap, and the only thing that i didn't like is the fact that they don't accept credit card payments, fortunately i had enough cash to pay the bill!

I have been here for dinner with some local friends; the place is very nicely decorated, good attention to details.
Service has been good, but need to be improved.
Food and drinks I really enjoyed, all dishes had very good quality.
Definitely a place to visit, during weekends need reservation.
