LeChaim restaurant is the kosher restaurant in St. Petersburg. To my surprise, the decor is quite elegant, and so is the presentation of the food. The food was very tasty and not expensive. We went back a few times to eat there.

Personal preparation of fine, fresh ingredients by a genuinely nice staff in a pleasant, comfortable restaurant setting that just happens to be located underneath the synagogue less than two blocks from the Mariinsky Theatres I and II. The perfect start to a memorable evening.
