A family-run Russian restaurant in St. Petersburg, in the center of the northern capital. Here you will discover a whole new perspective on the classic - easily blending tradition and modernity, they have tried to achieve an optimal balance between the old recipes and the latest culinary techniques, genuine Russian hospitality and European service, beautiful design and functional interior solutions.
The choice of dishes will please fans of delicious, nourishing and wholesome food - they offer the visitors only the freshest ingredients. Most of the food is cooked in the restaurant and gets on the table, as the saying goes, "piping hot" - in particular, the open brazier that adorns one of the rooms, "Gates." Culinary creations made by skilled hands of the chef Igor Timofeev, on the one hand look like food, loved the early years, and the other - reveals new shades in a familiar taste palette. Sometimes, however, they turn to other manufacturers - in order to surprise some gourmet gastronomic or refill wine list best drinks from around the world.
In the restaurant "gate" you can go as a family, and taking the little fidgets - for them they have organized a children's room and came up with a special menu. And kids and adults will enjoy the flavorful homemade pastries, including the famous "gate" - the national dishes from rye flour with different fillings, after which the part was named restaurant.
The second meaning of the name - the entrance to the welcoming of ownership. And here they have something to be proud of - the people who will meet you at the threshold of "Gates", polite and helpful, without too intrusive, but with pointed attention to all the desires of visitors. The main thing for them - that the guests feel as comfortable as possible, not only in the restaurant, but that was planning to visit him. That's why they provide the opportunity to book a table and talk about banquets, weddings, anniversaries and other celebrations in either online or by telephone.
Favorite Dish: All the food i have tried here has been amazing
Truly russian restaurant: native cuisine, famous russian dishes like vinaigrette or puncakes.
Tolearn mre about russian cusine read on our site in Travel info section, "Traditional russian food"
Favorite Dish: Firm cake - it is just melts in your mouth.
The restaurant hall will immerse you in an atmosphere of Russian fairy tales. The Russian restaurant is small, but there is literally permeated with all the atmosphere of home comfort. The exclusive interior of the restaurant, which worked on the creation of Sidorkevich Victoria B. - known in the northern capital of Russia, an artist and designer, in the heart of Peter "or Emelyan-wave of the wand" will surprise every visitor. The walls and ceiling are decorated Russian restaurant artistic painting and carving, which worked on the real masters. Here you will meet all the favorite characters of Russian fairy tale Emelya, who was sitting on the stove, welcomed all the guests of his restaurant's charming smile
If you're looking for a quick meal, avoid the ubiquitous golden arches, and try fast food Russian style. This local chain of restaurants specialises in blini - Russian pancakes/crepes - with both savoury and sweet fillings, and they also serve soups (including borscht) and salads.
When we visited the branch near the Hermitage, the staff didn't speak much English, but they have a menu in English behind the counter.
3 blinis, a soup and two drinks set us back 487 roubles.
Favorite Dish: The ham and cheese blinis and mushroom filled ones are my favourites. My partner very much enjoyed the creamy cheese soup, and the kvas (a fermented, but almost non-alcoholic, beverage made from black or rye bread).
The best part of the the new 2007 Panorama restaurant is its view. The Moscow Hotel remodeled and added an eighth floor restaurant. Only one elevatror, the one on the right, can go to the 8th floor. In a city dominated by 18th century 4-5 story buildings, it is a pretty good view.
The restaurant is a narrow strip along the front of the building facing the Neva river and streets. Prettiest at night.
Favorite Dish: Salads for 200 rubles, main dishes 3-400 rubles. You pay for the view.
It is open 24 hours, which fits those with jet lag very well.
Beautiful large log house set in a newly built village of Russian Culture.
In addition to eatingin teh huge log lodge you can visit other log buildins with traditional crafts, blacksmithing, and so on.
Favorite Dish: You can eat many old time dishes such as salo (pork fat) or bear meat :)
The Espaniola (Hispaniola) was the pirate ship from Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island." You can can find the galley along the canal Griboedova in St. Petersburg.
The decor is like the inside of the ship, tables suspended from chains and cannons in the windows.

Favorite Dish: The main dish is Naval Pasta, long spaghetti pasta mixed with white meat sauce.
Good soups, cold beer, atmosphere.
BlinDonaldts, A combination of the Russian pancake "blini" and Donald from McDonalds.
There is usually a playground for children, seating like a fast-food restaurant and if you are lucky, fast and warm food.
But usually- the donuts are hours old, the fires dry, all meats over deep-fried.
No hamburger or hotdog, only very greasy sausage on a stick deepfried inbatter, Cutlets deepfried, chicken deepfried.
When it is not old cold food they may be busy. We have waited 45 minutes for erroneously filled, but warm, orders. The lesson to be learned- DO NOT GO HERE except to see what some businessman considers Russian Fast Food.
The prices are not too bad, but but it is not a bargain if you regret what you eat there.
Favorite Dish: Blini for breakfast, pischki (donuts) only if they are fresh and a good deal, spaghetti for 12 rubles
Russian House restaurant is located in a three-storied mansion surrounded with palaces and parks of Tsarskoe Selo ( Tsars Village ), one of the most beautiful suburbs of Saint-Petersburg.
As in all restuarants you have no time to talk to your neighbour,if you do so and you are not attentive, your plate is gone.
Favorite Dish: As we were in group, we got a menu ,on which nothing was to complain.
This restaurant is a mid-priced, comfortable spot that has an extensive menu of traditional Russian food. It's one of the few places I've found that really does these dishes right, without charging an arm and a leg for ersatz Russian village decor.
