I' m describing the part which is called dessert-hall, the part which is decorated in rustic style, as there are two entrances the embankment of the canal Griboedova, the one- into the restaurant with red colors and the second- nice and cosy with very friendly waitresses, they are quick and responsive. The menu contains soups, salads, main courses ( meat,... More

After reading the reviews, my wife and I went for dinner in this restaurant. First impression is good with a nice ambient, but.... not at all what we expected. The pictures in the menu seemed delicious but the actual dishes were not the same. My pumpkin soop was supposed to come with a slice of a grilled duck liver on... More

A restaurant with an interesting history and a stock of family recipes that are definitely worth a try. Here you will feel the spirit of the city, the link of times and generations. Even if you are not interested in the history and culture of St. Petersburg, here is worth a visit just to eat.

On the same street, Griboyedova Embankment, there are two denisov s, cafe and restaurant. Restaurant is well decorated and has a romantic atmosphere. Dishes are delicious. Both cafe and restaurant has reasonable prices.The staff are very friendly and speaking English. In cafe I strongly recommend to taste “almond pie” and “honey cake”.

We went here on the reccommendation of the staff at our hostel. We were the only people there so the service was fantastic! Very reasonably priced, about 400rbs for a main dish. Definitely worth a visit!

We went to D&N for an informal Sunday dinner and had a lovely evening. The restaurant was very well laid out with nice local decor and a lovely location near the river. The menu choices were excellent for vegetarian and a wide range of cuisines. I chose Borscht and Beef Stroganoff whilst my Wife had a King Prawn salad. These... More

Came here for 2 meals, close to our hotel. Reasonably priced, wide variety with English on menu. Nice ambience. Beautiful saurkraut soup, lots of seafood variety. Dessert menu light on for variety, but great apple crumble. Perfect for anyone just looking to eat nice standard Russian food - seems to serve all day. Perfect for me, so 5 stars. Also,... More

Denisov and Nikolayev is the name of both a cafe and restaurant, situated next door to each other. I had lunch at the cafe, which has apparently been there for a long time, they say it started out as a bakery. The exposed red brick walls give the place a warm, old school look and feel. And it's a good... More

Incredibly delicious Russian cuisine and a stylish interior. Charming waitress (this were my girlfriend's words, I did not argue). Came once for dinner... then breakfast next day... and dinner again. Located nearby vaunted "1913" rests on the sidelines.
