Called in here as we stayed at the hotel next door.It was a fun evening in retro soviet style surroundings,playing dominoes whilst we waited. The food was interesting, my husband had cold honey beer soup, an acquired taste that he perhaps did not acquire. I had zucchini which were nice, and then a less tasty pancake, so a little heavy . The worst downside for us (sorry folks!) , was that it was full of American tourists, and we prefer to find places where the locals eat.

Next to Radisson on Nevsky, easy to find. Enjoyed Monk's stew and cherry ravioli! Decorated with momentos of the Soviet Union, circa Sixties and Seventies.

We are a young married couple from Australia , we are complete foodies and I have Russian heritage. Today was our first in Russia and after a long day of walking around the grandeur of this amazing city we hit Nevsky Prospekt looking for a nice Russian early dinner, something like my baba makes. We walked and walked and came across this cafe and it was the best choice!! We have just come back to our room and the first thing im doing is writing this review, I can't believe this cafe is ranked 150+ !!!

I will post pictures shortly, we ordered the chefs salad with smoked mackerel, caviar pancakes (bliny), pickles assorted and each a plate of beef and pork pelmeni. Everything was delicious! All the food was fresh and of good quality and nothing fell unbearable heavy on our stomachs.

After a game of dominoes (they come free on the table for you to play while you dine) we were ready for dessert! We had classic chai for two, strawberry soup with ice cream and Wafa dacha which were the most amazing heart shaped waffles.

We are already planning to go back!! A must try if you are looking to taste the food of the Russian elite at affordable prices in your visit to Russia!

Lovely restaurant. This place should be ranked much higher. We also went to the #6 ranked restaurant on TA (Levin) and it was nowhere as good yet twice the price of soviet cafe. The porcini mushroom pelmenis were my favorite - the borsch was also very good. Very atmospheric.

They also have another location closer to the hermitage at 20 Nevsky prospect. Newer but just as good!
