Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed a dinner with a family. The food was excellent: tasted good, perfect portion sizes, many many choices. Prices were just right. They also have small kids area with a wooden horse, which is nice. We plan to return on next trip.

After a long day sightseeing, my wife and I were looking for something light to eat and near our hotel. What an unexpected treat. Excellent tapas selection with a mixed option that allowed you to try both meat and fish - so beautifully prepared and...very fresh. Friendly and efficient service with a level of English that allowed full and detailed explanations of all tapas. Welcomed cherry vodka shot on the way out Wouldn't hesitate to recommend - great food, great staff and pretty good wine too!More

Really close to our Metropolis hotel and recommended. Really nice atmosphere, russian people were celebrating a dinner with traditional toasts. The dinner was good. The bortsch is very good with "sala" (pure and tasty bacon fat). We tested a lot of dishes, kamchatka crab excellent,...oat blinis with cranberry marmalade and honey, ...friendly and English speaking employees. Very good address.More

All was good from the beginning where you can try home made cherry vodka, atmosphere, excellent starters and main course! Must visit for real Russian old time atmosphere and quality drinks, including home made ones!

What a lovely surprise. We were hungry and cold and did not feel like looking for a restaurant, so went into the first one we saw. It was early afternoon, so not many people there. We were given home made vodka at the entrance to...warm us up. We had a set menu which was delicious! I highly recommend the dumplings (not sure what it is called in Russian). Everything from starters was amazing. The waiters were the friendliest waiters we came across in St Petersburg and their English was so good. I loved all the Christmas carols! What a lovely surprise!!!More

Hadn't had such a horrible experience in ages. It took an hour to get served two starters (lunch time empty restaurant) we never got one of the dishes we ordered and were charged for bread we never got. Never again.

The menu was interesting and the service was good but half way through this group of musicians came in to sing and dance. It was impossible to talk over them so we were forced to listen. They weren’t particularly talented. No more than average. I...would definitely not have gone in if I’d known.More

We were recommended this place by our hotel as traditional Russia tapas bar. The food was okay but our evening was ruined by terrible live music. Realised this is a tourist trap to be avoided. The live performance was truly awful. Avoid if you can.

Lovely service! Tasty food. Fair price. And the BEST: very well spoken English!!! We went after theatre, to dinner. Rainy night... We were starving!!! The young, funny and SO polite Nikita, one of the the waiters, welcomed us. We had cheese plate, bull hart and...the from the traditional Russian cuisine...Stroganoff. Nikita recommend us to taste a very special Vodka and caviar - a promotion of the day. Good choice! So, we do recommend this restaurant! In the other days we cross in front of Russian Tapas during the day and it was possible to notice that it is a good place also for Happy Hours. We really would like to give ours compliments to the restaurant for the over than the average service. Thank you! Janine and Christophe, from São Paulo, Brazil.More

The food is great, the service and the Russian live music adds to the great experience. The borscht is the best I have tried. The bomb with rum for desert was fantastic.

After we felt we had enough of the Hermitage we found this nice place nearby and walked in for a late lunch. We loved the food and the service. It has a nice atmosphere and we even enjoyed the musicians playing folk music. It is...a bit on the touristy side, but all was more than highly appreciated!More

Reviewed 8 July 2019 via mobile

We came to this restaurant because our guide had recommended it as something that wasn’t overly touristy and would offer good, high-end Russian food. We certainly found this place to be fun (featuring Roma dancers) and with great food. It styles itself as a Russian...tapas bar and features both a tapas menu and a full one. We opted for a dozen or so tapas and flights of vodka and thoroughly enjoyed both. The only reason I am docking them a star is because of the lackluster service. Our waiter couldn’t remember the details of our order and seemed overwhelmed. The hostess at the front of the restaurant was great, however. Highly recommend making a reservation in advance.More
