Neighbourhood: Vasilyevsky Island
Description: «Taverna Grolle» has established on Vasilyevsky island in summer 2011. Next June restaurant is celebrating its 6-th birthday! The entourage of 5 restaurant halls is created by oak furniture, hand painted plafonds and lamps, panoramic view on Bolshoy prospect and Saint Andrew's Cathedral. Evenings in Taverna are especially cozy: the candles are melting on brick walls, the musicians are playing guitar and accordion. The huge bronze chargrill in the shape of octopus and the two-faced rostrum-siren on the bar stand are invented and realized by sculptor professor of Academy of Arts Pavel Shevchenko. Both sights are very functional: we prepare fish and meat on the chargrill, guests are drinking on the bar stand. We pour draught beer, lots of strong drinks for gentemen and lots of cocktails for ladies. The wine card includes both wines from Old and New World, by bottle or by the glass. In the summertime you can enjoy our pretty terrace full of live flowers and if necessary warm plaids.

This is an upmarket restaurant with an extensive menu catering to all tastes in a great neighbourhood. Specialities seem to be seafood and wood fired cooking. We had a waitress who spoke excellent English. The decor is more traditional than modern. Worth a visit

The best lamb I've eaten in ages. Menus are in Russian and English. The waiting staff also spoke some English as well as being helpful and friendly. 3 main courses, 3 deserts, coffees and drinks came to less than £20 per head so good value. Credit cards are accepted.

We had shrimps with chili and red caviari with pancakes for starters, and I cannot recommend the shrimps enough. So good!

My husband ate beef cheek, which was deliciously overcooked, and some carrots ad potatos.I had chicken shislaki which was cooked on fire. Did not like the sour cabbage, but that’s just my taste. Did miss some vegetables from my dish.
We sat close to the fire, it was very warm and the air was filled with smoke, which was not so nice.
There were two guys playing quitar. They were good and brought nice athmosphere.
