This is the best restaurant in Barnaul, and the only one with the European level of service and food. It is excellent. Highly recommend, do not even bother looking for any other restaurants, or going anywhere else.

Whilst vegetarianism isn't big over here, the chefs did their best to prepare some dishes especially for me-and they were very tasty! However, the most amazing thing about Velvet are the cakes and chocolates. I received a red velvet birthday cake from here, complete with...More

I went there to compare it with Polzunov. To tell you the truth, I liked Velvet more. But, keep in mind the previous review - Italian with a Russian flair! The other place is really Russian and local speciality place. Velvet is nice, good food,...More
