It's okay if you are hungry and just needed to fill up. There's not much selections but prices were reasonable.

We had one Coca Cola and one glass of wine. Service was very good and it was a nice diversion during our time at the Hermitage. Prices were reasonable, co side ring the location.

Nothing really good, Avery expensive place. If you have the possibility to avoid this place do it, there plenty of excellent restaurants around. Very rude staff

I get it, this is not a fine dining place. You are not here to eat after all. Typical museum/gallery cafe. Usual fare with sandwiches, cakes etc. Nothing to about, just gets the job done. Coffee is from a machine so don't expect anything amazing.

We had quick lunch here on our visit to the Hermitage museum. It was crowded and expensive. Food was average tasting. Since it takes long to visit Hermitage, if makes sense to have food and beverages here.

Our small tour group ate here after visiting the State Hermitage Museum. The menu ranges from salads to sandwiches, soup and hamburgers. We chose the chicken and bacon sandwich, which was half a club sandwich (i.e. one half of a double decker sandwich). The flavour...More

Thank goodness that our guide took us here instead of wasting time in long lines. All you need for a lunch is here. Very patient with our lack of Russian and just finger pointing.
