Traditional Russian cuisine in a summer camp (dachu) setting right on Nevsky Propekt...made for a pleasant dining experience. English menus with variable levels of English speaking staff. Must try delicious appetizers: Vareniki-- a sort of ravioli stuffed with outstanding tasting porcini mushrooms and "Pelmeni-- a spicy (not hot) stuffed dumpling. In between courses, you can play dominoes which are on all the tables. Tasty stroganoff, pleasant wait staff (commented I liked the candy that accompanied the bill and she returned with a hand full..Spasiba!! and good service with reasonable prices...definitely recommended.

If you have a late night craving and don’t want to end up in a tourist trap go to this restaurant right on Newski Prospect. They serve food until 1 am.
Look out for a green-framed entrance and walk downstairs. The staff is very friendly and some understand a bit English too. They serve good Russian food for very low prices. The interior is not fancy. It’s more like being at somebodies datscha with remnants from past soviet times. Rum ball was recommended as a desert and now we know why. It was a fluffy rum flavored dream of dark chocolate.

If you are walking the Nevsky Prospekt from the Hermitage, the door to this cafe is on the left side of the street on the corner across the first canal you come to (Moyka). Walk slowly as the name there is only an entry door. Inside the food and atmosphere are what everyone says they are. Just be aware that it will take considerable time to eat here, maybe more than you want if you only have a few days to tour. If you are in St. Petersburg for a very short time, you might want to hit the Market Place down the street and be well fed and on your way in minutes.

This is a good find. Set on Nevsky Prospekt, you go downstairs to a windowless restaurant that is nonetheless attractive in a rustic, country-homey way. We were given an English menu with a good variety of food, quite reasonably priced, and our waitress spoke English. The meat pelmeni were delicious, as was my entree of potatoes, pork, onions and tomatoes. I never would have eaten here but for this tripadvisor recommendation.

This restaurant is delightful. Furnished in the style of a comfortable, slightly shabby, dacha, it serves excellent Russian food. Menus in English are a bonus.
