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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

К сожалению, в 22:30 не смогли попасть в заведение, хотя на вывеске надпись «до 23:00». Аргументация «когда хотим, тогда и закрываемся». Unfortunately could not reach it at 10:30 PM. Argumentation from hostess: we’re closing any time we want. However table on door says: up to...23:00.More

We had an amazing experience in this restaurant. It was my first time eating georgian food and I’m totally satisfied thanks to Rustaveli. The place is nicely furnished and the food is more than good. I highly recommend it!

A small cozy restaurant. Good food, okey prices. But, the menu is a bit hard to understand. And the waiter did not help us when we ordered. So we ordered way to much food. In other restaurants they make sure that we understood what we...ordered... but, the food was good. The dolmades were nice.More

A charming Georgian restaurant in close proximity to the Hermitage in St Petersburg. We ate there twice as the atmosphere, staff and food was delightful. The restaurant always was full and the staff were relaxed and efficient. The staff recognized us upon our return visit...and really made our evening special.More

We chose to have a Georgian meal for our last night on holiday in Russia. This was a good bet as we were staying very close. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the menu had pictures (which helps is English speakers). The food...was tasty and well presented but we ordered too much. In other restaurants the waiting staff had warned us that we were ordering too much. Worth a visit but be careful when ordering. P.S. nice Georgian wine :-)More

We went there with our 8 months old son and everybody from the staff were super friendly. They are kind of famous with their Adjarian khachapuri which was awesome. Prices are absolutely reasonable and food is great.We will definitely visit again!

I wanted to eat at a Georgian restaurant during our visit and try their shashlik, which is a family favorite from home. We kept our meal simple, with an order of the cheese bread, tomato cucumber salad, lamb shashik and sauteed peppers. Almost forgot, Georgian...wine which was the highlight of the meal. I did not think the lamb was superior to what I make at home but then that is a special family recipe. I also wanted to get a shot of vodka to complete the Russian experience but our host insisted on a shot of grappa instead. The décor was Georgian homey which I thought was interesting. I think this would be a great place to meet a group of Russian friends.More

I try always go to new places when I visit a new place, but if I ever come back to St. Petersburg I will definitely come back here. Great food, nice people, excellent experience. For the main dish we shared a big plate of something...of most meat types, and added some sausages extra. I don't think you can go wrong here if you like meat!More

In our surprising first visit to Saint Petersburg, beautiful and attractive Russian city that we named as "the latin Russia" we inquired about different gastronomic places and, among them, our hotel concierge recommended us to go to a Georgian restaurant facing the river Moyka and...about 10 minutes by taxi from our hotel. We like it so that, in our seven day stay, we went twice to taste the delicacies from the Republic of Georgia as the spinach "Pkhali", sort of balls seasoned with spices from Georgia, tongue and two shashlik, one veal, the other lamb along with what they call bread but is similar to a pizza stuffed and covered with crispy "Suluguni" cheese. Four days later, we repeated this outstanding dinner, both times accompanied by, another big surprise, a Georgian superb wine called Chateau Mukhrani. The service is as excellent as friendly. In a relax ambiance, with good space between tables, the site is like a cozy wooden rustic cottage where we enjoyed two excellent dinners that will be remembered for a long time.More

We found this restaurant in a German guide and given we have been to Georgia last year we wanted some good memories back. It is a nice little restaurant with very friendly staff. They serve all the good food we remembered from Georgia, including Georgian...beer. The portions are big and it tasted very good. If you like the atmosphere of a small pub like restaurant with specialities from a not so usual country - give it a try. I would come back any time while in St. PetersburgMore

I had problem myself, the online booking wasn't working for me/my phone, but I messaged then on Facebook with a request to book the next day and that worked fine.
