Our hotel was just around the corner of this beautifull, cozy restaurant. And what a surprise! From the decor - that reminded us some kinda grandma house in the 60s - to the menu, we really liked the place. We had a chicken kiev (with the greatest crunchy exterior and creamy sauce inside) and the traditional stroganov (with a great... More

Nicely decorated reminding the real soviet datcha with all its vintage items and details. The russian food is also very traditional and tasty, except the disgusting pickeled mushrooms. When it comes to staff and service, It was really a very bad experience. Although, the place was half empty, we waited 15 mins to place our order, than another half an... More

We were ( again) recommended this place as something different and very authentic. It is situated in the basement of a large building on the corner of Nevsky Prospekt opposite the Stroganov Palace. We couldn't find it at first but asked a passing St Petersburger who told us that he regularly eats there and that the food is of good... More

Me and my mother came here for dinner our first night in St Petetsburg and had a wonderful meal. The atmosphere and decoration here make it feel as if you ate in someones home; warm, cosy and informal. There are wooden logs, and an open smoker where you can watch food being prepared from some tables. Highly recommend the russian... More

I stumbled into this place while looking for food and warmth, caught almost by surprise by an early snow. The atmosphere looks very warm and Russian to my foreign eyes, kind of what I would imagine a "Russian" place should be. I had an excellent mushroom soup and roasted lamb with coriander and fresh onions - both dishes were rather... More

Right on Newski prospekt we went down the stairs to a restaurant that felt like a "Datcha" with wooden walls and posters. Food was good, service friendly, and prices very reasonable. Good place to go to!

If you want to have true Russian cousine with an old soviet interior then this is the place to visit. Located conveniently in the beginning of busy Nevskyi prospect, this place offers true homemade local food. We tried soups, salad, meatballs, pancakes, pelmeny's and everything was soooo good. They even offer the tea in old glasses. And then you wait... More

Fantastic food and drinks. Solyanka (lots of meat soup), shashlyk (kebab), vodka (no explanation necessary). Very cozy with Soviet flair. Might need to bring a Russian friend to help navigate thru the menu. Very authentic!

This basement restaurant is charmingly designed to look like a dacha (country retreat) of the Soviet era. The food is inexpensive and delicious, true Russian home cooking. Don't miss the potato pancakes or the honey cake.
