In Russian, the name of this restaurant means ‘heat'. And it is true that the atmosphere is warm here, which appeals to the many customers who take refuge in its small rooms with many nooks and corners. Located around the corner from the Astoria Hotel, the decor is original, if a bit eclectic, but very friendly, with a young and smiling staff not always a given in Saint Petersburg.
A small terrace on an outdoor courtyard adds to the charm. But the real draw is the food, simple, varied, and perfectly prepared. Russian dishes dominate, but there are international dishes, too, and good vegetarian ones as well. The desserts are tempting, especially the chocolate cake and warm apple pie. There is a small playroom for children, and the prices are very reasonable.
