In the very heart of St Petersburg, on the Karavannaya Street - two minutes walk from the Gostiniy Dvor metro station - you find CAT, the well-known restaurant of Georgian cuisine. It is the beloved place of the connoisseurs of the real home-made Georgian food. The moment you walk in the CAT at Karavannaya 24, you see the main design detail of the restaurant - a lot of pictures of the famous guests with their autographs and words of gratitude for the delicious food and excellent service. What makes the atmosphere absolutely mesmerizing is the live music every evening. The most striking thing about the CAT is that you always get this warm feeling as if you are home, due to the unique Georgian hospitality.

We thought we were going to "Cat Cafe" but ended up at this place instead! This is "Cat Restaurant" and while it is also Georgian, we were disappointed! The food and wine were very expensive and there was simply nothing outstanding about the food. The decor is also very dated. To get your money's worth, we highly suggest "Georgia's" (about... More

the food was really great and the service was quick! We ordered solianka and harcho soups, Georgian salad and grilled beef and chicken. Everything was delicious! Lots of herbs and spices, but not too much. We'll definitely come back here!

I had all too quick visit to Cat while on business travel. The food was extraordinary good. Especially I liked the small dishes (like Meze).

Very close to the tourist hotels on Nevsky Prospect. Smart decor in a well kept restaurant with great service and a complete English/Russian menu. We had the borsch of course but along with it came a tumbler of vodka, Russian black bread with horse radish spread and, believe it or not, a rose of lard. Hmm. We are definitely not... More

This restaurant serves Georgian food. It was fresh, beautifully cooked and delicious. Worth the little extra you would pay at other Russian restaurants. The waiter was helpful and attentive.

That was a good place with life singing at every 7pm, tasty Georgian food and very drinkable house wine (I tried semi-sweet). I was there several times, liked everything from set options and vegetable dishes to the desserts.

A small hide-away not far away from the Nevsky. A great selection of Georgian food and wines. The place is perfect for small gatherings if you enjoy laidback family style cooking. The quality of food is always consistent and tasty.
