Cute underground bar/restaurant, dimmed lights, and a menu with multi-cultural influences, but enough Russian bits to keep me happy. The fried garlic potatoes side dish was to die for - outshone my "shyuka" fish rissoles that they were accompanying.

The small restaurant gives a superb service and excellent food. Good music and no press on ordering. You can sit all day

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. Our travelling companions agreed that the rich porcini mushroom Stroganoff, poached salmon & sour cream served with potatoe daphinois were sublime and outstripped our wildest expectations. Krokodils food will appeal to even the most sophisticated palate and is prepared by a truly accomplished Chef in an unassuming pub restaurant environment. The only thing to criticize is the WC facilities - which do need to be attended to. Excellent!

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.
