One of our favourite restaurants when visiting St. Petersburg! The ambience of this restaurant is so lovely and the staff are very helpful and accommodating, especially with non-Russian speakers. The food was delicious and the menu is very diverse (there's a mix of Russian food, Indian food, sandwiches/wraps etc.). Super cute cafe environment, highly recommended! Suggest making a booking as... More

Both the food and the juice were amazing - try the Lakshmi drink and the Super Dal (our favorites). Friendly attentive service in cute cafe environment.

We found it hard to choose what to have for dinner as everything on the menu sounded fantastic. Eventually we had carrot fritters, fried cheese, salad and buckwheat. It was all very good and prices are quite reasonable (this is, after all, central St Petersburg). We sat on the patio and enjoyed lovely views. The only disappointment was the rather... More

We are not vegetarian, but the meal at Botanika deserves a special mention. We went there for late breakfast, they open at 11 am. We have been told that during lunch and dinner, there could be people lining up outside waiting to eat there. It is a trendy place, but one of not too many choices for vegans and vegetarian,...

Great cafe, great food (lots of choices), good service, prices reasonable. Loved the vegetarian borsch and Tolstoy's carrot cutlets. Ate there several times, was very happy to find this kind of place in St. Pete (which is a lot more veggie-friendly than in the past).

We have been at Botanika twice, in May 2016. The menu offers a very large choice of starters, soups, pasta, salads, main courses and desserts, all vegetarian or vegan. Nice and cosy atmosphere, makes it perfect for a romantic evening with your partner, for friends and for families (a nice area with toys and books is available for kids to... More

The Cafe Botanika, which is located in the city-center, is a very good choice, especially if you can't decide on what food you want, since you don't have to - they offer a wide range of Russian, Indian, Italian and Japanese food. When I was there, I had the Salad "Trio" and then we shared the "Indian Lunch" - which... More

We have experienced this restaurant twice, one day just an afternoon coffee with a desert and on another day a lunch meal. The deserts are very good. The meal itself are well presented with a little taste of India but they are good as well, even for a non vegetarian like me.

Elegantly prepared vegetarian food that will please the meat-eaters too. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy great people-watching.
