Description: Ikra is a Zakouskis bar ("tapas" in Russian) that serves continuously from noon to 23h. The idea of Hagop Markarian, former director in one of restaurants of Cyril Lignac and familiar of the Russian and Armenian culture, is to democratize the Russian gastronomy to make it more fun and accessible to all.

That was my first visit to Paris with my husband. We were wandering the streets of the city and found this wonderful place and as far as we were already rather hungry, we decided to have dinner there, also because the name attracted me, I am natively Ukrainian)) To sum up I can say we were very pleased with service and food! And I recommend this place to other tourists with pleasure!

The food was ok but very expensive for the small portions that they served in an ultra-modern setting. The night we were there the restaurant was quite empty. There were only 2 tables of diners including our own.

The musicians kept asking diners at the other table to suggest songs for them play. We saw this scene playing out and knew our time to be annoyed would come. We sat in uncomfortable silence as the two musicians played away on their instruments right in front of us and we couldn't wait for the songs to be over. Then, of course, they hinted that they wanted money for their music.

If you like live music played right in-your-face all night long and to, then, be sollicited for money while eating ok food in a modern setting, well, you've come to the right place.

Dinner for 6 with pre-dinner drinks, wine and desserts came to about €300.

Our waitress served us the wrong dessert but did not apologise for the mistake when we informed her.

Was there tonight for dinner. Server was super nice-very attentive, the music and decor were great! Had the babushka kutlet as an entree and the shrimp pierogi for appetizer. Serving size was large, and I was completely happy with my meal =) Haven't gone to a Franco-Russian restaurant before, but based on this experience, will definitely go again. Great job!
