When you’re on vacation in the mountains there is nothing better than relaxing and dining after a day full of adventures, sports and sightseeing. Taking a pit stop at a mountain restaurant to warm up with a gluhwein is very romantic, especially during the winter season. Here are our favourite places with breathtaking views in Sochi & Adler region for you to try.

Che? Harcho!

Restaurant, Russian

One of a very popular chain of Black Sea cuisine restaurants by White Rabbit Family. Serving affordable dishes made from local ingredients that are delivered daily from local farms, the bar also has regular live music & sport events on the huge wide screen. You can always feel true Caucasian hospitality here.


Restaurant, Bar, Peruvian, Pub Grub

All the fine traditional Peruvian dishes and tasty cocktails are here at Chicha. Cazuela soup, ceviche, home-made causa, fish dishes with Peruvian fruits – and plenty more. Don’t forget to try bright green liquor made from coca leaves and guarana.

Red Fox

Restaurant, Russian

Red Fox restaurant is the flagship project of White Rabbit Family in Sochi. With Southern Russian cuisine on offer, it’s located at the modern Rosa Khutor ski resort. The menu has been created by talented Russian chef Vladimir Mukhin who uses only local ingredients and creates culinary masterpieces. Red Fox has been frequented by famous politicians, businessmen and athletes, while documentaries from BBC and CNN channels brought the restaurant worldwide fame. Book in advance, it is expensive but the food quality is the best and the restaurant is always full.

Traktir Trikoni

Restaurant, Italian

There’s a time and place for the trendy hotspots in Sochi area, but sometimes you just crave some good traditional and nourishing courses and this place is a right choice. Offering a vast choice of typical Italian plates, breakfast and brunch options, the best coffee and an amazing view. This is a very popular option.

Surf Coffee

Cafe, Contemporary

Surf Coffee Cafe, located in the beautiful village of Rosa Khutor, is the little brother of a popular chain of surfer cafes in Moscow. The vibe of the venue is very laid back and cool with the original surfing interiors reflecting the same modern riders aesthetic. Great coffee and surely the best place for those who prefer to hang with friends before hitting the slopes.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
