If you need a place to spend a quiet evening with your loved one tasting a good food along with a good wine, this is a place for you. A very good service, an individual approach to a client with welcoming constant clients, all this makes Bistro Garson our favorite place. We have started visiting it 10 years ago and... More

We ate here several times as the food was excellent although it is relatively expensive for St Petersburg. I had beef stroganoff in three restaurants in St Petersburg and, in my opinion, their's was the best. The restaurant is quite small and has a pleasant ambience. The staff are pleasant and speak English well, making ordering food easy. There is... More

We ate here twice. I had the Beef stroganoff on both nights. It was excellent. I could not get a straight answer, as to whether the tap water in Saint Petersburg was safe to drink. So, I asked for bottled still water. I was served a liter bottle of Evian - imported from France, and charged 400 rubles ( over... More

We had a nice meal in this wanna-be French restaurant, that almost, but not entirely got it right. Fromage as a starter is not something you will find in many restaurants in France, nor that they ran out of housewine. The atmosphere was relaxed though, and the food was fine, although not quite matching the price.

Le Bistro Garçon is more French then France is, the crew that started this Bistro shopped around and furnished the restaurant to give an atmosphere where one could almost smell baguettes, the Seine and hear some French mumbling. It really felt like a shame that there were only a few tables occupied, this restaurant should be on everyone’s list if... More

Conveniently located cozy place with nice authentic interior. The food is quite good either, especially pancakes. Nice coffee and choice of spirits. What I didn't like is that the waiters are a little bit weird... Anyways the design and soft convenient sofas make this place an ideal spot for a romantic hideout from the snow and cold wind outside. The... More

Good value, nice service and some interesting (not just French) food. We really enjoyed it - tucked in from the snow, waiting for our midnight train. Nice wine list and fabulous pastries - out of this world pistachio macaroon. Rest of the food was fine - but a nice change and good value - some mains are only around 10€... More

Cosy restaurant with a very nice ambiance on Nevsky Prospekt. Althought you are in Russia, it feels like you are eating in a Parisian bistro. The a la carte menu is very extensive, as is the wine list, and the prices are very reasonable. The food is very tasty and the presentation of the food is nice. Service is good... More
