Soups we had were excellent and on advice of waiter small cheese pie (he informed us large one would be too large) was a great lunchtime choice, disappointedd not to be able to visit for dinner with live music, qualtiy of food, wine and decor was superb.

We stumbled on this place since it is a basement restaurant and our skepticism turned into admiration. We each ordered different plates of grilled meats so we could share. Each type of meat was delicious as was the beer and wine. While I initially thought the prices were a little high, I found the portions to be large and very... More

Good food with an interesting ambience. Liked it very much. Friendly and efficient staff. Reasonable prices. Would recommend that you approach it from the end of the street that is furthest away from the Hermitage, the other end of the street is quiet and looks distinctly dubious at night, with what looks like a lap dancing club hiding in the...

This is fine dining from the country of Georgia and stands-up like a king over Georgian restaurants in this city-- most in St. Petersburg are 'shashlik' eateries. 'Cat' is a nice couples 'date' restaurant and yet, a place to dine for business conversation as it is generally quiet. If you are a vegetarian looking for fresh choices with wonderful dishes... More

This quaint restaurant is a hidden gem and a must do whilst in St Petersburg. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially our waitress who offered good information and suggestions for our menu choices. My husband went with all her recommendations for a full Georgian experience and was not disappointed. The price was very reasonable considering how expensive... More

We found the restaurant to be quite cozy with a charming cat themed decor. Our waitress Anna was delightful and helped us navigate the menu. On her recomendation, we went with the pkhaly (eggplant with wallnuts), the pumpkin soup, the khochapury (a variety of meat kebabs), and several desserts. We also ordered a nice looking salad, but Anna politely suggested... More

Nice place in the very city center. If you want to try a bit different food to Russian cuisine it is a perfect choice. Knowing that Sankt Petersburg and Moscow are really expensive cities just be prepared to spend more than for the simillar meal in any European city. Anyway I liked the food and will come back there next... More

Went to have dinner with a couple of my friends. We were six and everybody left in a great mood. The service was great, as well as the food and everything else. We were able to talk, relax and catch up. The atmosphere was delightful. We especially enjoyed the wine! Something magical about it! I'll recommend it to all my... More

Upon our arrival and prior to getting our bearings in St. Petersburg, we asked the concierge in our hotel for a dinner recommendation. We were looking for something simple and reasonably priced. She recommended Kat (Cat), a Georgian restaurant not too far away. The food was fine, nothing special. The cost was ridiculous for what we received. The price of... More

Great food (shashlik and khachapuri in particular), nice Georgian wine, mesmerizing music and extremely friendly staff. Will absolutely come back when we're in town again.
