Not sure why this currently ranks as an "expensive" restaurant on Trip Advisor, value-wise, it's much better than 50% of decent places in the city but unfortunately, the food itself isn't that great. It's hard to pick faults but it's just a very very average meal with ambience that is full of tourists that are brought in big groups because... More

Exceptionally mediocre food, surpassed only by the rudeness of the staff. As noted by a previous reviewer, service was sullen and painfully slow; unacceptable with 4 waiters to 3 tables. Pan seared foie-gras to start was good, but both the salad and pelmeni's were ordinary. Crispy potato pancakes were void of crispiness and sat in a puddle of mushrooms. The... More

This restaurant was recommended by our guidebook, by my Russian friend and Tripadvisor. We had high expectations but unfortunately we were disappointed with both service and food. For starters we had pelmeni and marinated mushrooms. Pelmeni was great but the mushrooms were way too acid and strong in taste. It would be a great side dish, but as a starter... More

Our group ate here as part of a tour and had the fixed menu of salad, salmon and dessert. Nothing bad, but also nothing impressive about this place. The dining room is small and rustic, but charming. If you are looking for a simple lunch, I recommend this place. Just don’t have high expectations.

I took my girlfriend out for dinner and we wanted an authentic Russian restaurant and Beef Stroganoff for dinner. We made reservations, service was excellent, food was even better, decor was nice. I thought it wasn't too pricy either, we paid 2200 RUB in total for starters, main meal and drinks. I would defo recommend Chekhov, its charming, good food... More

On the last night of a visit to Russia, we went here on Tripadvisor recommendations, and could not have been better pleased. The decor and the staff dress immediately set the tone for a memorable night. The menu was very extensive and the food excellent. The waitrsses were very helpful and pleasant. On ordering a taxi, they even told us... More

This is nice small restaurant not in the city center but if you are visiting Peter and Paul Fortress this is only 2 km away. The menu is traditional Russian style and the food is good. Service is very friendly and the waitress speak English which is not so common in St. Petersburg. Ask waitress to order a taxi otherwise... More

This restaurant is a little bit tucked away, but if you go there you won't be disappointed. The food was divine and beautifully presented. The restaurant was decorated to a high standard and had loads of atmosphere. The service was excellent. I speak only a little Russian but my waitress spoke good English and made the dining experience completely stress... More
