A really relaxed atmosphere wirh well-made foid that could have come out of your mum's kitchen. No frills but good, tasty and fresh.
Would recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone wanting basic good russian food.

Olivie was a fantastic find. I've been staying in St. Petersburg for work for about 3 weeks and stumbled upon this place (literally) near my hotel. The menu is mainly Georgian/ Armenian/Azeri with some Russian favorite thrown in but don't let that stop you! The food was delicious. I also appreciated that in the 3 weeks I have been here, it was also the only place that offered wine by the glass at a decent price (everywhere else has been charging a fortune)

The restaurant is divided between a bar area and the dining area. Menus were available in English as well as Russian and the wait staff was super attentive and helpful. They were pleasantly surprised I already knew about food from the region but were ready to answer questions should I have needed them. The took credit cards as well.

It was a fun restaurant and I look forward to going back!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. It serves very good Russian and Caucasian food in a bright modern setting, the prices are reasonable and our waitress was charming.Near Nevsky Prospect, we think this restaurant is quite new and deserves to do well.
