After 5 days in St Petersburg our group of 4 is still exploring this menu. We have tried other well recommended mid-range restaurants and nothing else compares with the outstanding quality of food at Krokodil. Whether ordering an horsdouvre to accompany Vodka in true Russian tradition, or enjoying a light salad, soup or main dish - every meal was excellent.... More

This is a lovely little place for lunch which you wouldn't see if you weren't looking. The food is good - the menu is mainly pasta or more traditional Russian dishes. It was a lovely place to relax with a drink and sit out the rain. Would recommend.

My daughter and I had a lovely meal in what is essentially a pub. Good service, nice menu, tasty food and a good value. All the food was freshly prepared. Chicken wings were a great starter. My daughter had the pike and liked it.

You might not find it easily if you do not know the location, but it is worth the search. Décor is unique and not flashing and screaming, and it in a way helps to concentrate on food. Menu is excellent and prices are affordable. Definitely worth the visit!

We had a wonderful meal and found the price to be reasonable when compared with other restaurants in the area. It's a pub style inside, but the food is wonderful!

We usually come here with my dear wife and it's very good. We even were surprised to see this restaurant so far from the top ones. The restaurant itself is not looking incredible but what's in your plate is amazing. Everything comes with a special sauce : the diabolo salad, the chicken wings, the beefsteack just to name a few.... More

We ate there a few times and the food was excellent. Be prepared to wait as the food is all freshely cooked - this is not just a cafe although it looks like one don't let the decor put you off.First night we visited staff were a bit surly but on subsequent visits were fine.
