Luxury Restaurants
Eat Like a Russian Tsar &
Get a Taste of the Good Life!


Discover the best luxury restaurants in Saint Petersburg Russia with our top recommendations and get a taste of the royal life.

You will really never forget your first meal if you choose to eat out at one of our favorite glamorous restaurants in Saint Petersburg. For us, it was dinner at L' Europe Restaurant, inside the legendary Grand Hotel Europe on the famous Nevsky Prospekt.

We had very attentive service, top-class food, and were treated like two Russian royals! Of course, it wasn't cheap, but overall it was an amazing fine dining experience, although there was some lack of finesse in the food which you would expect in New York or Paris at these prices.

That said, if you too, want to eat and feel like a Russian Tsar during your visit to the city of St Petersburg, and you have money to splurge, then you should really go to one of these luxury restaurants presented on this page. Each of them offers a unique royal atmosphere, plenty of caviar and vodka with authentic Russian food that is well served and very tasty.
