Here I had some excellent Russian food that I missed for so long. Vareniki with cherries is simply a must, other dishes were good too. Highly recommend

Great place, close to the backbone of Nevsky avenue. Was there in the middle of February 2020, they serve truly Russian national cuisine. Had a borscht with a lard on bread, very tasty, the latter is perfect. Also had a Kiev cutlet, delicious, no questions...at all, but the portion is little bit small. Local moonshines (or tinctures) are great! Price is above moderate, but is affordable. Communication with the waiter Vlad was perfect, that's the reason why I'm leaving my review here. Highly recommended to visit if you're choosing between Saint Petersburg restaurants.More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge in the Crowne Plaza hotel on our first night in St Petersburg (13th Feb). We loved it - great food and a laid back vibe. The service was fabulous and Vlad P our waiter and was...really helpful with the recommendations. We enjoyed it so much we plan to go again on our last evening before we leave St. Petersburg.More

Good looking restaurant, charming staff, excellent food, definitely a recommended place in St Petersburg. Traditional Russian recipes are revisited but without straying too far away to become unrecognizable. The borsh is spot on, so is the smoked fish platter. Excellent deserts. Anastasia was our waitress...that evening, and she did a stellar job of keeping us refilled, happy and wanting for more: thank you!More
