Did the servant of Russia’s last Empress Anna Vyrubova ever imagine that her countryhouse would become the most romantic place on the Gulf of Finland in a hundred years?
The “Nasha Dacha” restaurant is located on Primorskoye Shosse, at Repino village. As soon as you see its green fence with curved decorations, tranquility takes the reigns. You can spot the reminders of the Chekhov era inside – comfy webbed chairs, yellow lamp covers with pompous brushes, tiny flowers on the walls. The interior design was created by the Megre Interiors agency.
You can sit yourself in the rooms with checkered chairs, a vintage fireplace and carved cupboards. Or you can sit at the outside terrace amid pines under a see-through roof, relentlessly penetrated by sun rays. But the spot with the cleanest air is the “front line” – bordering the beach, sea breeze and a rocks disappearing into the depths of the sea.
We would define “Dacha’s” menu as home-style, but with an ambition. The menu is full of pickled veggies. Mangoes and strawberries are trying to fight it out which gives more flavor to the crab salad. Grilled duck makes itself look prettier with ripe cherries. Honey in the pear and goat cheese salad gives a lavender scent. Traditional okroshka soup carries the all-time favorite “Doktorskaya” salami. Salmon tar-tar is served with seaweed jelly, also complemented by home-made fermented buckram. Octopus lays next to tender avocado, Volga’s crucian carp is baked in sour cream. Sizzling kebabs are brought from the barbeque place, chicken marinated in adzhika sauce comes from the grill.
If someone wants to get food on one’s own, the local pond has carps and snappers. The “Nasha Dacha” is not just a restaurant – its more like a resort. Bikes for hire, volleyball and badminton courts and even vegetable patch, where thyme and arugula grow.
Our young guests are welcome to come over to the attic third floor – to dine at a mini-restaurant, climb into a tent, cuddle in a hammock. And if you’re looking to make a proposal – go to the Kisses Tower. Spiral stairs take you to the fourth floor – which has only one table and a view of the waves, the sky and all the beautiful sights.
