There are restaurant cars on the train which serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner as part of the full board service to all passengers of the Grand Trans-Siberian Express. Local cuisine is part of the menu. During sightseeing tours in the cities local meals are served in the specially selected restaurants.

This is the most popular place of the train and open to all passengers until late. Come, sit down, enjoy the scenery passing by the window and relax while having a drink and listening to the piano entertainment after dinner.

In the lecture area, part of the lounge or a restaurant car, your tour escorts hold lectures about the history, geography, economy, and daily life of the regions visited.
