Outstanding Pastries, Classy Ambiance, Exceptional Food! 

Located near to 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.

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.

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.
