Russian in Sennaya & Kolomna

Something of an expat favourite, the Idiot is a charming place that has been serving up high-quality Russian fare for years now. The friendly basement location is all about atmosphere, relaxation and fun (encouraged by the complimentary vodka coming with each meal). You can't go wrong here, whether opting for bliny (wheat pancakes) with caviar, grilled trout or pelmeni (Russian-style ravioli) with mushrooms and sour cream.

The cosy subterranean space, the antique furnishings and crowded bookshelves make it an extremely pleasant place to come for a bite or for drinks.
