Just had early dinner. 5pm. Have been in St. Petersburg for a week and now a week in velicky Novgorod and this is by far the best food and atmosphere we've encountered. All others pale by comparison. And the value is exceptional. Not cheap but very fare for quality. We had soup, salad, mint encrusted tuna and beef medallions (two petite filets) plus a side of potatoes and creme brûlée for dessert. Plus six glasses of wine, three Italian white and three Australian reds. House wines. Total cost 4000 rubles or $70 for two including tip. A steal for the States. Great service too.
Suggest you go early like we did as the locals claim the place starting at 6pm. It's popular with the nouveau riche.
