Interior was very special and was recommended by a nice friend for authentic Russian food, we tried many different food and are all pretty satisfied (~10 people), a far walk off from the attractions but it is not something you would regret. :)

Spend an enjoyable 2 hours here sampling vodka, food and atmosphere. Food was good, vodka was an experience, live music great. Mixture of nationalities, but mostly Russian suggesting it deserves the stars. Go it's an experience!

This place is overrated. Food is very fatty and not too authentic. Interior is somewhat interesting. Cold appetizers seem pretty good (had tongue). Hot food wasn't very good - pork shank was huge, but not great, fish was fried in oil that tasted stale. Had 2 shots of different 'nastoyek'. The worst part - had horrible food poisoning/ upset stomach... More

Amazing place where you can feel truly Russian atmosphere and enjoy local authentic vodka and traditional food. More you can see, hear and test in vodka museum. Excellent service and hospital staff. Live music with Russian romances will make your visit unforgettable.

I've been many times in this restaurant for the last 8 years and can say that it's still probably the best place in St-Petersburg to taste Russian food. Great choice of traditional meals accompanied with many types of vodka and local strong drinks, which are especially nice during the winter time. Service is traditionally very good. Waiters usually help you... More

As part of our Road Scholar tour we first visited the adjacent vodka museum with 3 different tastings. (Trick to not getting blasted is to eat between shots). Granted it was a set meal for a tour but I found the stroganoff to be the best I had in Russia. Cute setting with musicians.

We were visiting the Russian Vodka Museum and decided to have an early dinner. We loved the atmosphere and the food turned out to be excellent. We enjoyed everything we ordered, but the "Moscovskaya Zukuska" starter was the firm favourite at our table - baked bone marrow on bread served with black salt. Very rich, but with a shot of...
