Cosy restaurant

First time we got there it was full, so we went the next day. Very nice lovely decor. Loved the pickles, the Russian salad and the carrot cake. Simple but very tasty.

Really enjoyed decorations and nice atmosphere. BORSCH was authentic and tested good. Salads we're great. Deserts we're outstanding. I went first time and return taking a friend for a dinner next day. Kids friendly because there is a nice separated child play room. The draw back is price. It is expensive.

Lovely food( bother veggie and meat) a quirky lay out and great staff a lot if who were fluent in English. I would recommend selecting 3 or4 of their little cakes/candies for dessert

Now thats what... More

Briefly, Gosti is easy to recommend! Polite service with staff speaking fluent English as well as pretty good food, unfortunately the portions were a bit too small. Very cozy interior.

This was a much wanted haven for lunch on a freezing day. The vegetarian lasagne was the best I have ever tasted and the portions were huge Waitress was slightly pushy but overall one of my favourite restaurants in St Petersburg

We wandered struggling to find a table for dinner in late December around the Nevsky Prospekt and came across Gosti, which appeared to be a tea room. In fact they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a large variety of cakes and teas. Despite a function going on upstairs, we were easily sat downstairs and were surprised at... More
