Style / Ambiance: One of the oldest restaurants in St Petersburg is also easily one of the city’s finest.

The modern day Palkin is built on the site of the original, legendary restaurant, a place that became a haven for aristocrats and intellectuals such as Tchaikovsky, Chekhov, and Dostoyevsky, who are all known to have visited the restaurant. Nowadays, the restaurant is still the place to be for the city’s elite. Palkin features sumptuous interior designs that recall the bygone era of Russian decadence under the Tsars and food of the highest quality, with chefs able to re-create opulent dishes from the past. This highly popular establishment is always likely to be busy so it is best to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
