Baltic Restaurant Review

: The bar is a blast and invariably full to bursting, so grab a cocktail or, of course, a vodka there before heading into the restaurant proper. It’s high-ceilinged and candle-lit in the evenings, with bare-brick walls and a huge chandelier. It steps through Russia and Eastern Europe, particularly Poland, with dishes like ogorkowa soup (the traditional soup made from tart, sour cucumbers and dill) and Siberian pelmeni (veal and pork dumplings) kicking off an interesting menu. Wiener Schnitzel makes an appearance alongside chicken paprika and whole baked sea bass with fennel and red onion salad. There’s a separate dumpling and blinis section as well. It’s all well done, an object lesson in how to cook Eastern European dishes, presumably just like your babushka used to make. Set lunch and pre-theatre, 2 courses £16.50, 3 courses £19.50.
