Outstanding Pastries, Classy Ambiance, Exceptional Food! 

Located near the Mariinsky Theater, many people enjoy a meal at this exquisite French restaurant before or after attending a performance. Even if you're not planning a trip to the theater, we highly recommend the experience of dining at Entree. Patrons who frequent this establishment say the food is on a level of dining that one would experience in France itself. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is fabulous, but the pastries are out of this world, so don't leave without trying a cream cake or eclair and a cup of superb coffee.

Bakery Heaven, English Speaking, Friendly Service!

Popular with patrons and hoteliers alike, Garson is known for its scrumptious baked goods. Hotels around the city order from Garcon. Yes, it's that good! Step in and you'll feel as though you've left St. Petersburg and entered a Parisian Bistro and authentic French-style bakery. This small, cozy French restaurant hosts an atmosphere filled with the sweet aroma of freshly baked loaves of bread, biscuits, crispy almond croissants, and great coffee. Pancakes and omelets get rave reviews, as does the Mussels in the apple-pear sauce. Friendly, English-speaking waitstaff make the Bar Garcon experience truly delightful. Definitely one of the best St Petersburg French restaurants.

Homey Atmosphere, Sunny Terrace, Outstanding Food!

From morning until evening, this French restaurant is a favorite of St. Petersburg locals. Chez Jules offers a pleasant, cozy setting with outdoor seating on a veranda overlooking the park. The delicious home-style cooking is said to be soulful and we're going to fill you in on a little secret. The banana cake with syrup or caramel is divine! Perfect place for a hearty breakfast, business meeting, or evening romance. We also recommend the scallops, monkfish, snails, and trout ravioli in cream sauce and finishing an excellent meal with tiramisu or crème Brulee. Enjoy!
