Set back off Nevsky prospect it is conveniently located from the good hotels. Once inside the rooms are grand and furnished in the 18th century style. Take the tour before settling down to eat. You will be shown the secret rooms and passage ways behind the cellar walls. Have fun an d book the one overnight room and take your loved one for a suprise. Two private dining rooms capable of hosting maybe 20 round the table, one larger dining room for the smaller groups. Top of the range service if not a little scared when dealing with customers who expect the best. Check out review of old customs house too in st Petersburg as its run by same group and so expect same quality and high prices. Food excellent, go Russian try the spade Olivier, some blinis and caviar, pelmeni, sturgeon or rack of lamb cooked less well done to a Russian would prefer. All excellent. Wines as always are silly prices in Russia so chose a good one and savour. No glugging!

Opulence is amazing, it's like going back in time of the tsar. Great food and service. We also got a tour of the secret wine cellar. Over all fantastic experience, it's pricey, but what a treat! Highly recommend .
