After a late afternoon arrival we wanted someplace "comfortable" and close to our hotel. Khochu Kharcho fit the bill. They have terrific pictures with good explanations of the food in English. Georgian food seems to use the influences you might expect given its geography. The Kharcho was one of several highlights, savory, rich and almost Indian in flavor. The khachapuri... More

We visited the restaurant based on Trip Advisor ratings in August 2014 while on a trip from US to Russia. At first I was apprehensive to go there: Georgian restaurant in St Petersburg, how good can it be?? Oh well, very good!!! Excellent food! Nice ambiance. Open kitchen - you can view your order prepared. Good service. For those who... More

In my view the best Caucasian/Georgian restaurant in St Petersburg and so far in Russia. The restaurant setting is very welcoming and very children friendly. Staff is very attentive to details and extremely knowledge on their menus including great wine recommendations. Food is very well presented, cooked to the perfection. This restaurant, as many others, belongs to the Ginza project... More

We found the restaurant by chance, being honest, my friend and I had no idea that it belongs to Ginza project. On a Sunday evening we decided to seat on the verandah but a waiter came out and offer us to sit inside. Cozy interior, extent Caucasian menu, and too much waiters :) Food us really tasty, portions are big..service... More

Good decor - particularly liked the tented /curtained seating areas at the back upstairs; and the loos were really lovely, too! Also very good food and wine - although not particularly cheap, it was the best we had in St.Petersburg.

We were in St Petersburg for 4 days. We were advised to sample Georgian food at this restaurant. We went there for dinner and had a great evening. There was a group of us so we shared some of the dishes which were delicious. The service was excellent and the wait staff attentive. We thought the prices of the dishes... More

Possibly the worst place in the whole city. Poor standardized food and bad service. It's not authentic caucasian cousine at all.

If only you could advise us on what was bad... More

This was best restaurant I went to while in St. Petersburg. Much better overall than couple other highly ranked restaurants I tried. Waiter was very friendly and helpful (and spoke English). The salad with smoked sturgeon was very fresh and good; my favorite was the eggplant dish-so much flavor and perfectly prepared. It was fun to sit near kitchen area... More

We did not left our hearts into Khochu Kharcho, there's plenty of more genuine Georgian restaurants in a city.. Some of us went back for a breakfast and were more satisfied.

A huge restaurant quaintly furnished with memorabilia. Fortunately we were with a Russian friend so ordering was not a problem for us, I sensed it might have been though if she hadn't been with us. Everything we tried we enjoyed, we were in a group of 8 so selected a number of typical dishes to give us an overall idea... More
