Great food, music performance and service!

We visited the place with a friend on a Friday evening (the place was full and we had a reservation). The restaurant is centrally located and is part of the "Ginza Project" group of restaurants (a few more of their restaurants are located nearby). The staff was friendly and gave very good service... read more

Visited Ribai today, according to the recommendations of Tripadvisor. I have to say I wasn't impressed. The restaurant has a good location, on a side street close to the Kazan cathedral. The welcome was warm, the place has a nice relaxed decor. Then came the unpleasant surprises. Firstly, it has a live music of two singers singing to instrumental covers... More

Great athmosphere and interior design in combination with tasty food makes this place a winner. We went here a Sunday evening and it was not that many guests but the staff performing covers in between did a splendid job! In between the performances it was normal music and it was really nice to see and listen to when they performed.... More

We visited this restaurant for a good meals. When we arrived to restaurant atmosphere was so good and the most interesting part is that all waitresses are singing and dancing one by one all the night as a professional singers and dancers. If you want to entertain while eating this is the right place.

Convenient location - close to Nevsky right side of the Kazan Cathedral. Stylish, pleasant interior. Comfortable sofas. The kitchen is wonderful. Besides steaks (very tasty and very expensive) menu is much more budget-friendly meals.Especially delicious pork in orange-mustard sauce. I recommend.

Steaks are perfect, atmosphere is cozy, waiters are sweet and gifted. Prices are quite high, but they are worth the service

My husband and I had dinner at Ribai while on a weeklong business trip in October. The restaurant is located in a modern building just adjacent to Our Lady of Kazan Cathedral and a couple of blocks off Nevsky Prospekt. We arrived a little early compared to the typical St Petersburg dinner hour, and as such it was quiet and... More
