“Good food at reasonable rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We had dinner on our first night there. The waitress was charming and attentive. the food was excellent with a wide choice of russian/georgian/armenian food. We liked it so much we went back on our final day for lunch there - it was equally good. conveniently located to the Hermitage Museum and St Isaac's Cathedral - this one is worth a visit.

“Fantastic food and fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Olivie was a fantastic find. I've been staying in St. Petersburg for work for about 3 weeks and stumbled upon this place (literally) near my hotel. The menu is mainly Georgian/ Armenian/Azeri with some Russian favorite thrown in but don't let that stop you! The food was delicious. I also appreciated that in the 3 weeks I have been here, it was also the only place that offered wine by the glass at a decent price (everywhere else has been charging a fortune)

The restaurant is divided between a bar area and the dining area. Menus were available in English as well as Russian and the wait staff was super attentive and helpful. They were pleasantly surprised I already knew about food from the region but were ready to answer questions should I have needed them. The took credit cards as well.

It was a fun restaurant and I look forward to going back!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. It serves very good Russian and Caucasian food in a bright modern setting, the prices are reasonable and our waitress was charming.Near Nevsky Prospect, we think this restaurant is quite new and deserves to do well.
