Description: A fine wine restaurant managed by highly respected restaurateur Leonid Garbar. Specializes in dishes of traditional European cuisine, especially those that are an ideal match with wine. Great cellar with a wide choice of ideally stored wines.Clairet has all the charm, comfort, creative cooking and pleasant atmosphere of a fine Western European restaurant. Always right for business meetings over dinner and for friendly get-togethers. Perfect dining experience for romantic evenings.

We came here after the ballet but it was attached to our hotel so very convenient. There wasn’t a lot of atmosphere as perhaps 9.30 is not very busy.Everything was delicious and the Russian dumplings are excellent.

We ate at several restaurants during our visit to St Petersburg and this was the restaurant attached to our hotel. We decided after a tiring day sightseeing this was as good as any with excellent friendly service (english speaking), good food (try the beef), a reasonable selection of wines all at a fair price for a centrally located venue.

We were staying in the Helvetia Hotel so it was an easy choice for our first night. Very nice ambience, friendly staff and the food was pretty good too.

Quite ordinary food, maybe we had too high expectations. The beaf Stroganoff was some coked meat in a bleak sauce , the Borscht was good though
