Description: Taste to eat is a restaurant of the new Russian cuisine in the centre heart of Saint-Petersburg realizing successfully an ambitious aim - to represent unusual sight on traditional gastronomy. It's the second restaurant by spouses Alexey Ten and Christina Vasilyeva who opened a restaurant at waterfront Regatta which has been loved by residents and guests of Krestovsky island for a long time. The greatest attention is given to the cooking which chef Anton Abrezov is responsible for. A vast wine list lets Taste to Eat to be called an enoteca. According to the creators Taste to Eat is made "about Russian gastronomy, for Russian gastronome, in the name of Russian gastronomy". "Unfortunately home gastronomic traditions haven't developed for a long time and they stay at the level of grandmother's recipes and mother-in-law's pancakes, and with mentioning about Russian restaurant only classical associations of bears, gypsy romances and tsars' sturgeons are coming up. For an example our North neighbors from Scandinavia have actively developed their own food culture which hasn't been distinguished by its stereotypes from ours. Nowadays Viking's food is a new gastronomical trend that competes with leading world cuisines and actively spreading all over the world. There are some restaurants and chefs that are trying to fix the situation in Moscow and Saint Petersburg but there're only a few. That's why we made up our minds to create a new modern Russian restaurant.

Came by for a light meal inbetween sight seeing. Had a cold tomato soup with a twist and a home made morse by the waiters recommendation. Really hit the spot on a hot summers day, nice flavours, well balanced and different. Was quite quiet when I came by. The waiter was very friendly and helpful, made me wish I had cash instead of card to leave a tip. Food was delicious, prices were reasonable. Overall, as a first impression I would recommend others give it a try.

“More on the fancy side of food, but easy going and good food”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

No mainstream or "authentic russian food". Rather on the creative side without to exaggerate. We had some "Russian Tapas", a fish dish and Bœuf Stroganoff. Everything vas very good and tasty. The atmosphere is easy going, the waiters are attentive and friendly. We liked it very much being there. We did'nt made a reservation, and it was also not necessary on a Satureday evening.
