We had twice dinner at the Cat Restaurant and were not disappointed. The kitchen was excellent and we especially appreciated the support we got from KAMIL! His english is very good and he is very competent concerning Georgian food. Prices are adequate and we can only recommend this nice place with its friendly staff.

We just stumbled in, and found it very nice, not too expansive, and most important - tasty. We got the chachashuly, ratatui, and some other dishes. Great. Recommended. Yair

Great atmosphere! Very good service, delicious cuisine and beautifully, authentically represented dishes. Not cheap, but worth the value.

We stumbled across this place as I was keen for a Georgian meal for dinner and were really impressed. The restaurant is a tad formal, located in a basement and styled with white damask tablecloths. The waitstaff were friendly and attentive. We had a bottle of wine and they ensured our glasses were never empty. We ordered the meat dolmades,... More

Got there on recommendation from our guide. Excellent interior, live music, attentive service, relatively fast. However, the food was mediocre for a Georgian place on this street (you have at least two more Georgian restos with better food within 100 meters). A major disappointment has been 'cat' kebab (shashlyk), where we expected to try all types of meat. Only pork... More

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
