We visited late in the evening one night after a long day of walking around the city. Ground floor is a bar, then restaurant over 2 floors and then on the 6th is a rooftop garden. Staff very approachable, attentive and very welcoming. Stylish, swanky place and you can understand clientele are on the hipster side. Prices are above usual... More

With a phenomenal view over Petersburg. The food is gorgeous, some dishes are full of phantasy (e.g. Try the " nut evolution"!!!!). The waitress was rather very unprofessional but this is the only small negative detail. The rest of staff very friendly! The bill is above average in Petersburg but just a half of what one would pay for this... More

I’d recommend to sit at the third floor or, if weather permits outside. They have very modern interior with shelfs displaying wine bottles. Service is very good and food is good as well. The place is on the expensive side, especially if you order drinks.

Trendy in St. Petersburg. The view from the terrace is pretty good. Unfortunately, the rain started almost as soon as we sat down, so we moved our lunch downstairs. The food was lavishly and artfully decorated. I ordered Saffron Fish Soup. Usually, it is prepared with various fish and seafood. However, since I don’t eat seafood, I asked for fish... More

When we entered (ground floor) around 13 hr there was no one except the staff. Also not a single guest upstairs in the restaurant. We should have left then, but since we were tired and hungry we sat down and ordered tea and coffee. We got the menu, and saw that even the simplest food was extremely expensive (three to... More

We visited for cocktails as we could see the roof terrace from our hotel and thought it would have good views of the city. Unfortunately it started to rain just after we arrived but the lower bar was covered and we were able to enjoy a cocktail there. The service was very attentive. We did not eat here, it did... More

PMI Bar, housed within an arch of one of the buildings in St. Petersburg’s historic centre, is Evgeny Finkelstein’s first restaurant project.It features three floors, three lives, three spaces – a bar, an enoteca, and a restaurant serving creative cuisine. At the core of the concept is food and wine; these two founding principles are taken care of by leading professionals and masters of their craft, famous both in St. Petersburg and far beyond.Chef Ivan Berezuckiy regularly takes part in the Omnivore Food Festival and won the International Haute Cuisine Contest in 2011. Charismatic and talented, he has developed a menu unique in both style and execution. It combines local produce and cutting-edge techniques, long-forgotten recipes and plenty of imagination.The wine list is the handiwork of the delightful Yulia Khaibullina, Russia’s top sommelier in 2008. Yulia is a consummate professional, who is constantly on the look-out for interesting samples and offers her guests unique wines and rare vintages.The cocktails are the invention of the bar manager, Sam Konyakhin. He opted for a classic bar menu, adding some variety with exotic ingredients and herbal extracts. Each and every mix is different, not only in terms of its unforgettable taste, but also in its elaborate presentation.The PMI Bar is divided by function into a bar, an enoteca, and a restaurant. The ground floor is a functional, arched space, with wine racks along the walls and an extended bar area. On Thursdays and Fridays, it is the perfect place for parties, with sets by the best DJs, exhibitions, and art installations. On the restaurant’s first and second floors, the softness of the dimmed lighting and the velvet dining chairs perfectly complement the open-plan style of the kitchen.The PMI Bar restaurant project is interesting in its own right, but what truly sets it apart is its rapid development and its constant desire to evolve.
