There are only about ten beer titles on the menu, and the list changes frequently. Baden-Baden does respect the German customs of cooking and service, so the end result is lots of food and fun. The traditional pub grub is available in great profusion: pig ears, sausages, BBQ ribs, and much more. As is customary with Sochi establishments, freshwater trout is also on the menu. Baden-Baden was hugely popular during the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.

This pub on the top floor of a shopping mall close to the beach is strictly no-frills, very affordable and often packed. The place is “budget” to the end, so don’t expect such luxuries as prompt or extra nice service here.

Dobry Ale (Good Ale) stays open late. When all life stops in the shops downstairs, Dobry Ale is still abuzz. People are drinking, watching football, having a good time. Dobry Ale offers seven kinds of unfiltered beer on tap, all brewed in-house. The beer is the place’s chief attraction. Each item on the bulging menu makes an excellent beer nibble or a meal: 295 rub. Bavarian sausages, 270 rub. fried shrimp, 185 rub. pig ears, to name only a few.

It would be smart to reserve a table ahead of time on the days of major sports events. In warm weather people sit out on the porch, sipping their beer, eyeing the sycamore parkway below.

This is a serious restaurant and brew-pub. They actually bring excursions here. Stargorod claims that its beer is brewed strictly in compliance with Czech recipes and national standards. They brew only four kinds of beer, but each one has a long history. They also prepare their food according to Czech recipes at Stargorod, and they claim they heed all the nuances of the recipes and ingredients just as carefully as they do with the beer. The menu is huge and variegated, ranging from the traditional pork knee to a large assortment of beer platters. They make their own sausages at Stargorod, which appear in their own section on the menu. And as if all that is not enough, they roast some animal at Stargorod every night: a sheep, a bird or a suckling pig.

The restaurant is on the waterfront. If you don’t care for beer, you may still want to stop by to enjoy the uniquely beautiful view from their porch. Once the sun sets, you may be in the mood to watch some sports or watch the chef’s one-man master class show.
