This restaurant is very nicely decorated bringing back the old Russia atmosphere. The service is simple perfect. But the best of course is food. It is authentically Russian but modernised to make it lighter, less sweet etc. Highly recommend Syrniki from Riccotta. Well, highly recommend...More

The restaurant was opened in 2008 – in the business area of St. Petersburg, close to the famous Smolniy Cathedral.Here our guests can find much-loved staples of Russian cuisine: stuffed fish, cutlets, sterlet and home-made pastry and pickles. The menu in the city restaurant is European, and the style is a bit understated, but our famous lamp-shades and other details leave you in a comfortable mood.Our unique location, close to the historical centre of the city but some distance away from the noisy avenues with their traffic jams; the convenient parking; the spacious interiors decorated in calm, warm tones; our wide variety of dishes and extensive wine list, representing French and Italian classics as well as the best of the New World – this is an incomplete list of the attractions of Shalyapin.Our private dining room seats up to thirty-five people and is the perfect place for confidential negotiations - or for watching football on the television, or just celebrating. Whether it is lunch with a colleague, a romantic dinner accompanied by live music, Sunday brunch, a wedding reception or a corporate event – the restaurant’s unique atmosphere is perfect for any occasion. That’s why many of our guests visit us several times a week.
