This place has been around for some time. Located on Krestovsky so need a taxi to get to and from there. The restaurant is done "Russian style". Good selection of vodka and vodka based drinks. They also have wine selection but go with vodka based "home made" flavored nastoykas. Also good "home brewed" beer. Food is ok. Nothing too special... More

During the last week of August my friends from Moscow and Rostov came to SPb with their families. And 2 or of three of them never been in Saint Petersburg before. Of course they ask me about excellent place for "welcome" dinner and final choice was this Russian Fishing on Krestovsky island. I can say almost the same words about... More

It was ok, but not fabulous, or even very good. Dishes were not interesting, except for the dessert. Service was very slow in spite of gazillion of people running around with walkie talkies. Nothing memorable...in spite of the price tag. But clean, interesting decor, nice green zone to walk around.

It was our last dinner in Saint-Petersburg and not the one to remember. Food is really average and expensive. However nice & quiet view from the restaurant.

Went to Russkaya Rybalka for supper around 4PM. Staff was very attentive and you can fish for your dinner. We got a large trout and had it smoked while we enjoyed fish soup, pelmenni, herring, smoked fish, mors, the local beer, crayfish, etc. Petting zoo is adjacent, the sable and goats were fun to watch. Highly recommended for the expereince.

We booked a table for 1830 and asked the very annoyed waitress if our kids could catch fish. After catching the fish we had to wait one hour and 50 minutes to be served. During the waiting time the waitress tried to kick us out two times telling us that the there is a time limit for the dinner. All... More

Food is overpriced and unremarkable. Staff is not tourist friendly despite knowing we only spoke English. Should have stayed at the Nevsky area to have dinner than spend extra money on cab fare coming all the way out here and having to wait another half an hour for a cab to take us back. Overall food was ok but not... More

Part of the allure of this is the experience of catching your own fish. That accounts for something, even if you have an "off" experience. I had the sturgeon, and had it smoked, grilled and fondued. It was good all three ways. We had a group of 8, and we were talking and fellowshipping so we didn't notice if the... More

It'ls a novel concept but compared to every other dining experience my wife and I have had the privilege of this past week in St. Petersburg, this was definitely the low point. We should have paid more heed to the most recent Trip Advisor reviews for the place but gave it a shot anyway. Grouchy & substandard service, poorly prepared... More
