Kipyatok is a comfortable, little restaurant in the centre of Samara. With tasteful lighting, it is adorned to create the feel of a late 19th century mercantile restaurant with a simple style. It reinforces this image by playing tasteful period and classical music, including pieces by Chaliapin. It offers a Russian were you can enjoy classic Russian dishes such as schi (cabbage soup - it's nicer than it sounds) and bliny (pancakes).
