Understand this restaurant is not part of the Holiday inn hotel, it is independent. You can charge to your room but with an upcharge (Service fee). The food is good but very pricey, too pricey for us. The service was extremely poor, they seem very unorganized only spoke Russian (being in an international restaurant should speak other languages).

Visited the restaurant during a business trip. The resturant is based on the 1st floor. Friendly welcome upon arrival. Had 2 starters which were of a perfect taste. This was followed by a steak. Not the cheapest, but the quality was perfect. Service quick and English speaking.

The literal translation of Korovabar is 'Cow Bar' so it's no surprise that steaks are the house specialty. They were cooked to perfection and delicious. Don't be put off by the restaurant being located within a Holiday Inn, the restaurant offers much better food than you would typically find in a hotel restaurant. The fit out and ambience in the...

Had an excellent business lunch at Korovabar. Steaks were tasty and perfectly well cooked and service perfect. Decor was nice and modern and I felt I could have been back home in the US. Learned the meat came from Russia and was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and tenderness
