Serving all the Russian favourites, this impressive restaurant’s decor combines traditional Zhostovo floral designs and Murano glass chandeliers with a slick contemporary style. It’s popular with theatregoers (reservations are recommended in the evenings in the high season), as it’s an obvious pre– or post–Mariinsky Theatre dining option. The waiters, all music students at the nearby Conservatory, give 'impromptu' vocal performances.
There’s a great children’s room and a full children’s menu to boot, so families are very well catered for.
