We just stopped by for a few beers after walking around St Petersburg all day. Staff were very friendly- even given our lack of Russian- and the beer was cold and cheap. Great atmosphere. I would recommend any time. Hint though- entrance is on the main road, not the one further down.

Very pleased with the service and the food. We were looking for a real Russian restaurant with traditionally food. We had the opportunity to sit outside, but decided to sit inside. The waiter didn't know too much English, but managed very well. The food was good and so was the dessert.

We had a lovely lunch on the patio! If you have nice weather this is a nice spot of an out of doors meal!

We chanced upon this restaurant on a cold, early evening. There was a friendly greeting which was backed up by willing and helpful service. The food was perfectly good and tasted of its advertised ingredients. The dumplings were outstanding. Definitely worth a visit for some 'local' dishes.

We had a very enjoyable meal here, with a good menu and attentive staff. Food was excellent, with the smoked sea bass particularly enjoyable. According to the menu there is a special smoking oven of some sort, and it really made a noticable difference to the flavour. One of my party spoke no Russian, but found the staff had sufficient...

Russia is a bit pricey and finding a good meal at a good price is a challenge. Romanov's was a wonderful find. The food was very good and the presentation was wonderful. Staff was English speaking and quite helpful. We sat outside in their tented enclosure on a sunny St. Petersburg day.

We had lunch in their outside enclosed 'terrace' which is quite nice during a windy and cool summer's day, and so cannot comment on the underground bar. Our salad choices were ok and my buckwheat cooked with chicken liver was interesting and tasty. Service was smileless and acceptably rude as we have come to expect all over Russia.

Food is great. Poor young waiter needs to learn how to smile and interact with his guests. No excuse.

My friend and I visited the restaurant near 6 p.m. It was rather calm. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service is friendly. We got what we wanted. The dishes were rather tasty. However my friend noticed that her coffee wasn't hot but on whole we were satisfied with everything.
