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

At the suggestion of our hotel concierge, six of us went to Ribay for dinner and it was an excellent choice. The staff was very helpful and friendly and from time to time performed musical numbers, which added to the fun. The decor is whimsical and different as well. The food, at least what we ordered, was excellent; in my... More

This is a unique restaurant that has it's servers actually double as performers of music, dance and magic! Besides that the food choices are plenty and the highest quality of steaks served. The service is excellent and from what I'm told, men seeking to see the "beauty" of Russia should check out the staff whom must be hired for their... More
