The reason why we went all the way to the restaurant is because it's recommended as a fairy great seafood restaurant by tourist information pamphlet. Food was O.K. although the amount of all the 3 foods we ordered was seriously little. What made us disappointed...More

English menu is available with English-speaking staff. The crab was great and the carb risotto was beyond perfect! Strongly recommend this place.

Went there on a Tuesday evening. Took 20 minutes until we could order food. 1.5 hour later the food was served. Small portions, we left hungry. The crab legs were served cold and was blond and boring. Starters were small and boring as well.

I came here with my husband to try the king crab. It was a great experience. Staff were super friendly despite our lack of Russian language. The dishes were delicious and I would definitely recommend people to come here.

We wandered into this restaurant, which is near the Hermitage State Hotel and it was one of the best meals we had in St. Petersburg. The crab and shrimp dishes were wonderfully flavourful. An assortment of perfectly cooked shrimp, king crab and other fish dishes...More

Found the restaurant on Tripadvisor and I must say the food is excellent. They have English menu's and the staff can speak good English which helps in the city. Scallop carpaccio starters, Tom Yum soup and the crab legs- each equally as good as each...More

Acquaintance with the menu we offer to start with a contrasted Baked avocado with crab, then fix it with Japanese pelmeni Gyodza with shrimp and crab, and for lovers of meat dishes Fillet-mignon cooked at low temperatures and fried grilled, with a cream of celery with a light note of white chocolate, cream from baked in charcoal potatoes. On the photo- "Nikeyi from beef".
