We stumbled upon the place, and I am so glad we did. We shared three different soups and a bread basket - what an experience. Good wine and beer list.

We had a wonderful meal here during our stay. We eat outside on the terrace which was more charming than the interior of the restaurant. The food was very fresh and the dishes carefully prepared. We had an indian style curry dish that was really sublime. The service was attentive and helpful. Our best meal in St Petersburg.

Nice place with a lot of choices for vegans. The food is tasty, and they also have fresh squeezed drinks - the apple juice was really good. Great, casual place to hang out with friends.

Discovered on a recent (very wet) trip to St Petersburg. Well worth the walk from our hotel for the cosy unpretentious ambience, warmth of the welcome and delicious food. As visitors, selected mainly from the Russian options and so enjoyed these light, fully-vegetarian versions that we steered a Muscovite friend back to Cafe Botanika for a second equally-good meal.

I'm a regular in Botanika. Sometimes going there for a quiet coffee, sometimes for food, or then for a beer on a terrace. Meals are good and tasty - I usually choose Indian food. They also have some Russian specialities and healthy juices. The best aspect of this place is ambiance - relaxed, friendly and homey. Interiors well-designed, original and... More

Simple, Small and comfortable place with unique flavors based on vegan food. I was walking around that neighborhood and stop by and despite the flower and bird decoration, I did not realize that it was vegan and I am not... But I liked it. Healthy.. Nice juices and teas also.

We booked a table at this restaurant on the advice of a young lady we met in the plane to Saint Petersburg. We are so happy we did. Amazing food : my husband shared an Indian dish with our two boys and they simply loved it. Our daughter had macaroni and Cheese. She finished her plate saying they were the... More
