Yesterday we had an awesome evening with Leo and Julia! At first we were sceptical because of the high price but it's definitely worth it! They are both very friendly and made us feel very comfortable during the whole evening. Preparing the food is a lot of fun and we learned a lot about russian cuisine and culture. The tasting/dinner itself was the highlight including many different traditional dishes and wodkas. I highly recommend this event to everybody who wants to enjoy a russian dinner with excellent company. Best regards, Josip & Anna
