About
The Repa, serving Russian cuisine, has opened on the site of legendary restaurant Backstage, once a favourite haunt of St. Petersburg's bohemian theatre community. The name is no accident: "repa" is Russian for turnip, a staple in the diet of ancient Slavs, and a distinct feature of Russian cuisine. The restaurant's interior was created by Russian designer Alena Akhmadullina. Historic autographs of brilliant figures from the arts world, such as Maya Plisetskaya, Placido Domingo, Diana Vishneva, and Mihail Chemiakin have been preserved on the walls. With a focus on produce and provenance, the restaurant's short menu features interesting ingredients from different regions of Russia and other Eurasian

My children and I came here after the Nutcracker next door. What a treat! The decor and service were lovely and the food was great. As an added bonus, there was a discount on most of our food with our Mariinsky ticket. Would highly recommend.

From the caviar to the desserts, all dishes were immaculate, as was the service. We combined it with a visit to the Mariinsky: the Mariinsky was great, but Repa won.

Absolutely amazing presentation and taste....The Chef is incredibly talented with pretty impressive creativity level! The restaurant itself is behind the scenes magic! All their walls and the windows are signed by the legends that performed on the stage of the "Mariinka"!!!
