This restaurant is just great. I am not talking only about food and the choice of vodka, but its interior, which takes you from 21st century to 1920-s 1930-s with the famous moments from well known to russians "12 chairs". This is the best place to try russian food and feel that atmosphere from that revolution generation, just early years... More

The restaurant was quiet at 8pm but we were not given a table in the room with the live entertainment although there were many empty tables, even when we left. The food was nice and we were given a free sample of Apple vodka which the OH sipped although the waiter told him he should throw it down! The best... More

We loved this restaurant so much that we went three times in the course of 5 days. It has a really fun vibe, great food and all of the waiters speak fluent English! The vodka selection is also enormous. If you are unfamiliar with different types of vodka or Russian cuisine, rely on the wait staff - they provide excellent... More

You can see that... More

When it comes to Russian cuisine, you can't do better than this one. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the combination of "folksy" and unpretentious rooms, great Russian food and lovely staff really won me over. I have visited the premises before to see the Vodka museum, and as I've wrote then, I found the museum a bit dull... More

Being in St petersburg had to have Borsch and Beef Stroganoff named after its famous inhabitant. Very tasty and large servings. Attentive service with copious tastings of various vodkas. Restaurant also has a small area dedicated to the history of Vodka.

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from trusted friends, and were not disappointed. It's often difficult to make a restaurant choice in an unfamiliar city when there are so many tourist traps and places which are in all the guide books but do not live up to their reputation. Here is the exception. The ambience, atmosphere, food , service... More

First time here. Vodka in Russia is always good in different places, but here you are also in the historic building with the superb Russian dishes and very attentive service. Big winner!

We ate here on Sunday June 22 - a family (Russian and English) meal for six adults. We enjoyed an excellent meal here four years ago and we were not disappointed this time. The setting is very good and the location close to St Isaac's Cathedral. The restaurant has a very good atmosphere which was added to by the folk... More

Very good Russian cuisine. Russian salads are amazing and the choice of vodka is overwhelming..). Service is impeccable. The price, while not cheap by Russian standards is very affordable for the Western visitors.
