Perfect for a fancy Russian-style dinner

I was here with a big group of people, and we ordered lots of food. We had dumplings (pelmeni), buckwheat, borsht, beef stroganoff, chicken Kiev, lots of great snacks (zakuski). All the food was great! My tourists were really impressed. We loved the way the food was served. For example, our tea... read more

One of our local guides recommended this restaurant, and we decided to go for our "farewell to St. Petersburg" dinner. It did not disappoint! The food was delicious, especially the beef stroganoff, great selection of Vodka and Wines. Service was very attentive and the prices were quite reasonable.

I had a great evening at this restaurant. The place is decorated like somewhere from the 1950's, and the waiters are all dressed up. The food was all really nice, I had a lovely beef stroganoff. There is a huge vodka list and the shots are reasonably priced. I also got very nice Russian beer on tap which was very... More

As a visitor from the UK, I am glad when I am in a restaurant which makes me feel like I am in a different country; but this one also made me feel like I was in a different half of the century. It was a lovely surprise, with someone gently singing, art-nouveau menus and dance cards on the walls,... More

I feel so lucky that I found this restaurant. Thanks to other trip advisors. It is just amazing! I tasted very delicious and delicate Russian food, and a few shots of fantastic vodka. The service is perfect, and the indoor environment is just so cozy and comfortable. Spend about 1500 rubs for a whole meal from appetizer to dessert and... More

We very seldom return to the same restaurant when abroad especially when we are on a short weekend trip, but we did it this time. The vodka selection in itself would have been enough. 189 ( if we counted right) different kind...The food was excellent, the service too. I highly recommend the small pankakes with salmon caviar as a starter.... More

We ate dinner at this restaurant on two separate occasions. Highly recommend the Vodka Starter No 2 with the salted cucumbers. Enjoyed entrees of beef stroganoff, grilled beef stuffed with mushrooms, and lake perch. The wait-staff spoke good English and were very gracious hosts, making recommendations for vodka and food. Great atmosphere made better with live music.

We told our guide in St Petersburg we wanted an authentic, genuine Russian meal. This spot hit the mark perfectly. Excellent food, tasty tap beer, good wine, very nice atmosphere, and best of all it was VERY reasonably priced!!

Of course the vodka was great, but we were surprised at how good our food was. It was just two of us and we ordered a few appetizers, an entrée each and two desserts. Everything was delicious, but we did not care for the salted milk mushrooms. I recommend making reservations.
