- Welcome to St Petersburg Essential Guide -

Looking for beer restaurants or steakhouses in St Petersburg? Want to raise a stein of beer and eat a grilled Russian steak? If so, read on...

Without question, beer and meat are always a good match! And if like us, you're a lover of beer and meat, you will have a very good time in the imperial city of St Petersburg.

Why?

Because Russia is well known for being a meat eater's paradise and beer is now more popular than ever, though many Russians still love drinking vodka and wine when at a restaurant.

So if you are on a trip to St Petersburg Russia and want to taste a medium rare or rosette steak cooked on the grill along with a good pint of a local beer (Nevskoe, Baltika, Bochkarev) or international beer (Heineken, Leffe, Guinness), you will find a lot of good beer restaurants and steakhouses to satisfy your palate.

But before you go, make sure you take note of some of the best places to eat out!

With so many St Petersburg restaurants opening up month after month, while others closing down it won't be an easy task to choose where to go. To help you we've created a list of steakhouse and beer restaurants that we have visited and like. We bet most of them will please even the most discerning steak and beer lover.
