Good food for your money! Fancy meat and fish. Tasty starters. Great dessert. And not too pricey by the way. Good place for locals. Try it!

Crocodile is not as excellent as it was during the past 20 years, but prospects are very good that its full excellence will return. We have been permanent customers of the Crocodile restaurant during the past 20 years, ever since it opened its doors. We have not ever given much thought to the restaurant’s interior, except as regards its CLEANLINESS... More

This place was recommended by our DK St. Petersburg book and it was worth the long search. Addresses are a bit touch and go in St. Petersburg so we had some scouring to do once we were on the right street. A green door caught our attention and we found it! It was small and comfy with a single young... More

This place was an old favourite but unfortunately it has not been updated for about 15 years. It cannot rely purely on the nostalgia and loyalty of its customers. The atmosphere is really nice and the place is great for a drink. The food was good too. There were some bugs on the wall which turned some of our party... More

We walked to Krokodil from our hotel. We had no idea what to expect, and first impressions were not too encouraging: we had left the floodlit heart of the city behind and come across an unimposing entrance with a green metal door opening on to the pavement. Inside, however, we found warmth and friendliness, and an atmosphere not unlike an... More

We popped in here on route to Issac's Cathedral. It is cosy and relaxed. My husband had the picked cabbage soup and I had an aubergine stuffed with mushrooms. We both enjoyed our meals and the service was good.

That is a wonderful place examined by years of visiting it. From outside it looks like some ground floor low quality bar, inside it has Indonesian design with rattan chairs and metal industrial decoration. But let you not be misled by that interior, actually they serve hear common European and Mediterranean cuisine, also Russian dishes are available. The place is... More
