We went to this restaurant with a small group from a cruise ship so was a set meal. The atmosphere was good, elegant decorations, superb service. We also had a folk music duet which added to the experience. The food was nicely presented. We had sparkling wine and a shot of vodka and four courses. Would certainly recommend it.

Mindal Cafe has outstanding Georgian food and is an absolute must during your trip to St. Petersburg! We had an early dinner, around 5, and ordered several plates to share. My favorite was the sulguni cheese - it is a must order! We also had dumplings which were also very good. Great food and service and all at an amazing... More

We came to this Georgian specialty restaurant based on a recommendation in our tour guide book and for sure we're not disappointed. The building looks worn down from the outside but is nicely decorated inside. The menus are in English, the chef speaks a little broken English and was helpful to identify authentic Georgian choices as they also offer Russian... More

I have eaten at Mindal twice. The food is exceptional. The service is very good, very attentive, and very personal. I highly recommend the Kharcho, and the Chinchurri. This place is a must if you are in St Petersburg.

Came here for dinner after a long day walking around the city and really enjoyed the experience. The staff is very welcoming and takes their time to explain the ingredients of the dishes and recommend wines to accompany meals. The menu is extensive and offers a range of choices including Armenian, Turkish and Georgian dishes. The dining room is formally... More

Very simple interior and very tasty food. Enormously big portions of soups and salads and even though they are big you can not stop until your plate is empty. Delicious desserts.

This Restaurant was selected by our tour operator for a group lunch. Our group of 40 fit into one of the parlors. It was a traditional Russian offering, starting with Vodka and Champagne to go with our salmon caviar canapés. It was followed by a Greek salad and bread. Cream of mushroom soup preceded the main course of plimeni, small... More

Came because of the good review in the DK guidebook but we were very disappointed. It's right on the Neva river but there's hardly any view due to the low outside awning. My wife had the dumplings with mushrooms but it was swimming in butter and practically uneatable. I had better luck with my chicken in cream and garlic which... More
