We had lunch here and while the soup we had was really good service was very slow over 30 minutes to cook a fish soup? We were also only offered an english menu which did not have the lunch special which was a bit odd. After finally our bill we waited 10 minutes for them to collect the money and... More

The decor is lovely, all rustic and homely and the restaurant is spread over several rooms. The staff were fantastic, helping us with another table when husband rejected the first, in the furthest away room, as having no atmosphere. The food was very much a mixed bag, it seemed as if the chef was trying too hard to be trendy... More

We went to Gosti in the evening and were directed to the restaurant upstairs, downstairs is their bakery/patisserie and cafe. The decor has a faux rustic feel, but is inviting and has sofas and cushioned areas as well as traditional dining tables. The food is advertised as Serbian, but doesn't differ much from the Russian/Georgian food offered in similar restaurants.... More

This place is absolutely nothing special, no sence to go. Staff is not friendly if not rude, food tastes not fresh and I would reccommend eeveryone to avoid this place. The general impression of the interior is ok but looks like designers did their work properly but restaurant managements seems not tarined enough. Location is perfect, close to the metro... More

Pretty much echo views already cited on this place. Solid choice. It's a bit Shabby Chic for my taste. Definitely kid friendly but not in a way that turned us off (we don't have 'em). All considered, it was a great dinner. Very reasonable price in US$ terms. Very nice and half-way prompt staff.

We went out for our first dinner in this great Russian city to Gosti based on a recommendation from our hotel concierge. Gosti is close to St. Issacs on Malaya Morskaya Street. It is casual, eclectic and cosy. Based on what we know so far menu pricing seemed midrange. This restaurant offers Russian style food, borscht, beef stroganoff and surprises... More
