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.

I've had dinner twice at Cat restaurant with my boyfriend. Since we don't see each other often, I wanted to make our dinner really special, so I chose Cat restaurant for this occasion. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was friendly, cozy and romantic. We really loved the service. We were served by the head waiter Maksim, who has amazing... More

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

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
