After a very long flight from Australia, we were exhausted but wanted to try Russian food on our first night in St Petersburg. We wanted to steer clear of the multitude of fast-food places. One of our group had read a TA review of this place on Nevsky Prospekt, very close to our Novotel Hotel, so we decided to try it. For 249 rubles each, we got an empty plate and were shown the buffet, covered with many salads, herrings and other fish in aspic. It tasted very good to us and we went back for more! The decor is mock-rural Russian, a bit tacky, but the place was very clean and well-patronised. Every hour two female staff members performed what we assume was a folk dance, to very loud recorded music, but we found it delightful. It certainly ticked the boxes for economy, cleanliness and quantity of food. We slept well after our meal!
