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...

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.

This place offers a lot of seating and good hearty food with well sized portions. Good atmosphere. The menu was not the most logical but after a good study everyone had a good meal. The kebabs were well prepared and the promegranate sauce was memorable. The lamb on the bone, dumplings and potatoes in jacket were super. Only bad thing... More

While wondering through karavannaya, we came across this place by looking through the window. The atomosphere is very nice and food is wonderful. The waitress made great recommendations on the Caucasion food and we loved her choices.
