Near St. Petersburg's landmark: The Hermitage, Gogol Restaurant offers traditional Russian food in a rustic, cozy setting. Borsch, is fantastic here. Beef stroganoff and dumplings are also nice.

We hadn't booked a table in advance, but the sweet girl who welcomed us had one table available. This was near the entry to the kitchen, so she showed us the table to check if it was okay for us before ahe took out coats. Although it was right next to the kitchen we didn't regret the seating at all.... More

The menu is written in a clever charming way, which is a fitting tribute to the writer the restaurant is named for. We enjoyed our dinner of caviar and pelemni to start. I had the beef stroganoff and my husband had... More

The interior is like you sep back 100 years. Very cosy and like a upper class home looked in those days. The menu have some Russian classics like stroganoff and borsch soup. We tried borsch (added with duck meat) and salmon with crêpes. Both tasty. For main course we had File Mignon. Good but we have eaten better. Altogether food... More
