This place was recommended by our DK St. Petersburg book and it was worth the long search. Addresses are a bit touch and go in St. Petersburg so we had some scouring to do once we were on the right street. A green door caught our attention and we found it!

This place was an old favourite but unfortunately it has not been updated for about 15 years. It cannot rely purely on the nostalgia and loyalty of its customers. The atmosphere is really nice and the place is great for a drink. The food was good too. There were some bugs on the wall which turned some of our party... More

We walked to Krokodil from our hotel. We had no idea what to expect, and first impressions were not too encouraging: we had left the floodlit heart of the city behind and come across an unimposing entrance with a green metal door opening on to the pavement. Inside, however, we found warmth and friendliness, and an atmosphere not unlike an... More

We popped in here on route to Issac's Cathedral. It is cosy and relaxed. My husband had the picked cabbage soup and I had an aubergine stuffed with mushrooms. We both enjoyed our meals and the service was good.

That is a wonderful place examined by years of visiting it. From outside it looks like some ground floor low quality bar, inside it has Indonesian design with rattan chairs and metal industrial decoration. But let you not be misled by that interior, actually they serve hear common European and Mediterranean cuisine, also Russian dishes are available. The place is... More

We were 7 people thinking we had a reservation through our hotel, but no.... However, the nice lady in charge made sure we got a nice table and excellent service throughout the evening. The food was top class, as well as the Russian champagne we had as aperitif and the wines and beers to the food. Highly recommendable place, a... More

Sorry to be so late with this but was reminded of it whilst reviewing photographs of our visit late last year - 2013, It was a generally great experience, a little quirkey with having to ring the bell on the table to indicate "choice made" but great food and beer. We loved it and will return some day !!

This is not a typical Russian restaurant, but it feels very cosy. The food is great, although a bit on the pricey side. I absolutely loved the fish soup! The waitress that served us was a bit sour, while her colleague was very friendly and smiling.
