“Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This restaurant was close to our hotel and as we were off to the opera early evening we were looking for an afternoon meal. This fitted exactly at all levels. The menu and service was good and sitting upstairs was very comfortable. My wife and I both had salmon which when it came was piping hot and a generous serving.

“Great restaurant and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Just back from Russia and ate at Gosti in Saint Petersburg. The food was great and the wait staff was superb. They spoke English and the menu was in English. I got adventurous and had the grilled octopus with ink and it really was great. All the food was very good and the presentation was nice.

“Perfect after a long day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food, English menu, and reasonably priced, it was perfect after a long day at the Hermitage. It is only a couple of blocks from where I was staying at the Four Seasons. I liked the food and atmosphere more than at Teplo. It was not a problem to get a table on a weeknight.

“Not as expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I was actually expecting more from this restaurant and am torn between rating this a 3 or 4.

dinner upstairs

Service - extremely slow, not attentive or personable. a smile goes a long way but was nowhere to be found. points for speaking English though. (note that perhaps we were just unlucky as most seem to have had great servers when dining here)

Food - hit or miss i.e. duck & cream ravioli with 5 ravioli and no bread offered or baked camembert served without points. tasty but...

Ambiance - french country with candles in wine bottles, baguettes in baskets... a mime playing the accordion strolls around the tables.

Pricing - 3,750R for one starter, three mains, two cocktails, one large carafe of wine, two coffees and one dessert

Not so great and so many more options to try.
