Food and restaurants in Saint Petersburg

Top restaurants

Restaurant
“ Half-naked people like to enjoy the sun in the Tavrichesky Garden. This is the park for ordinary people to come and take a short stroll, while fitness freaks go jogging. Once it belonged to Grigory Potemkin, the favourite lover of Catherine the Great. Red Mountain, the raised terrace and cafe, is marvellous for sun lovers, and the kebabs are great. The park also contains a bright spot: The Tavricheskiy Palace (closed to the public) held the first State Duma (parliament) meeting in 1906, as did the Petrograd Soviet following the February revolution in 1917. Lenin's statue has been removed and replaced by Russian poet Sergei Yesenin.”

“One of the trendiest restaurants in St Petersburg with great food and delicious cocktails! Mansarda is one of my families favorite spots and while a little pricier than normal, you get the best view of St Isaac's Cathedral in the city. Expect a large menu with options for everyone - booking is recommended however. ”
