The food was insanely good, the staff were fantastic, the whole experience was incredible and we were very happy customers. I would say this is the finest restaurant in St Petersburg by far. Thank you!

We went to Palkin on a whim and it was great, the service was good and it has a small taste of old Russian upper classes. The food was good - but we'd better elsewhere. Wine list extensive but as seems to be the norm...More
