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.

This place was recommended , you can’t miss it , directly opposite the train station , look for the large orange letters. Great choice of local food you pick up a tray and choose whatever you want, it is weighed , you pay , you...eat. There is a bar area so you can get an alcoholic drink to go with your food. 2 people ate and drank a good dinner/beer for less than €10 . It is also a very clean place with plenty of seating.More

After overpaying for a mediocre breakfast offering at our hotel we went here on our second morning in St Petersburg and had lovely coffee an omelette, black pudding bread rolls and pastries and paid the equivalent of about three pounds! Was a bit more of...a cafeteria than a restaurant but the food was good and for the price it was excellentMore

Been there twice. Great place for breakfast and lunch. It's cheap, it's varied and there is explanations in English. The food is buffet style with typical Russian dishes. Chicken soup from real chicken (not from broth cubes). We loaded our plates with salads, soup, hot...dishes, dessert, and coffee, and ended up with 1.200 Rubles for two. Plenty of locals here, and lots of tables available.More

I liked this place. There are lots of diferent dishes to choose from. lots of them in small portions almoust like tapas. I liked the salads and the pickled vegetables . There was a big choice of meat dishes too. This is probably not the...place to go out for a formal dinner but it is a great place to pop in when you get hungry and want a quick bite of tasty food. Also very good juices. .More
