Just off Nevsky Prospekt. This is a delightful find and close to the Russian Museum. the restaurant is divided into different spaces and we sat through the back.

We were happy with this restaurant in 2011 - but I was a bit vary now, having read the review "Theft alarm" where someone complained about being cheated by wrong items on the bill. I am not sure whether such a practice would be sustainable, and I tend to think that errors are human. At any rate, we were here... More

Food was great and the atmosphere was amazing untill we got the bill. Such a disapointed to see how they are trying to milk you and add imaginary lines to the bill hoping that the good general feeling will let us ignore the ugly behaviour. They simply add lines with no connection to the actual meal we had. Ugliness in... More

Just one block from Nevsky. Very good meat and vegetables. Tasty food and very good red house wine (Georgian). Try it

Friendly Georgian atmosphere, excellent food and matching demisweet red wine. A pity we don't have this type of resto in Belgium... Service was excellent, no mistakes, good recommendations but a bit slow for Russia (fast for Belgian standards). The bill was below 90 Euro for two including wine, definitely worth the satisfaction received. They also serve food 'to go', which... More

We order 6 dishes between 2. All were extremely well made, and exotic (to us - as it was only our 2nd Georgian/ Caucasian restaurant). Very friendly staff, who spoke much better English than most in St Petersburg. Wide selection on the menu. If it just says 'meat', it means 'lamb'. Plenty of other meats and fish though. Very good...

We tried this Georgian restaurant as it was in walking distance from the Corinthian hotel and off nevsky prospect. For a starter I had vine leaves filled with minced meat,called Tolma which came with a Yummy yoghurt sauce with garlic and was very good. Friends I was with had soup and they were pleased with the soups too. For our... More

Quality of the food was above average but we waited for an hour to get the main dishes. We got one of the entries after getting the main dish and the second entry is not here yet even though we already finished the main dishes. On top of this the waitresses were far from gentle.

This was our first meal in Russia....and it didn't disappoint...a spirited wedding in back room (we loved it)...beautiful decor with tan colored linen tablecloths...small intimate room with great, well seasoned, complex tasting food and friendly English speaking waitress...and contrary to one review we didn't find the wine excessively pricey.There is a problem with the government prohibiting the excellent Georgian wines...

I travel to St. Petersburg twice a year and always look forward to a meal at Kavkaz Bar. Food and service are consistently good. The restaurant's selection of Caucasus and Georgian food is good and it's location, just a block off of Nevsky prospect, in the city center is very convenient.
