I took my girlfriend out for dinner and we wanted an authentic Russian restaurant and Beef Stroganoff for dinner. We made reservations, service was excellent, food was even better, decor was nice. I thought it wasn't too pricy either, we paid 2200 RUB in total for starters, main meal and drinks. I would defo recommend Chekhov, its charming, good food and easy to find!

On the last night of a visit to Russia, we went here on Tripadvisor recommendations, and could not have been better pleased. The decor and the staff dress immediately set the tone for a memorable night. The menu was very extensive and the food excellent. The waitrsses were very helpful and pleasant. On ordering a taxi, they even told us how much it was to cost.

This is nice small restaurant not in the city center but if you are visiting Peter and Paul Fortress this is only 2 km away. The menu is traditional Russian style and the food is good. Service is very friendly and the waitress speak English which is not so common in St. Petersburg. Ask waitress to order a taxi otherwise it might be difficult to close to restaurant.

This restaurant is a little bit tucked away, but if you go there you won't be disappointed. The food was divine and beautifully presented. The restaurant was decorated to a high standard and had loads of atmosphere. The service was excellent. I speak only a little Russian but my waitress spoke good English and made the dining experience completely stress free . We had pre booked a table and are so pleased we had because it was starting to get busy at 4.30pm on a Saturday afternoon. Even the butter to accompany the bread was homemade!
Just wish we could have stayed longer and had a desert, but alas we
had to rush back to our hotel to get changed for the ballet. When the bill came I was pleasantly surprised what good value it was.
If I come back to St Petersburg I will make it the first restaurant I visit.
Thank you Chevov,

In a country where most new restaurants are highly ambitious projects for which you pay a lot, this is a really pleasant exception. Located a bit off the beaten track, it is well worth the detour. The actual room is small but very cosy, almost like a private dining room. The food is well-cooked traditional Russian. This is not a gastronomic adventure but a piece of local history served with blinis, caviar and vodka in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
