The waitress spoke virtually no English, but was welcoming and hospitable. The menu was sub-titled in English and there was a good selection. The cold beet soup was interesting, not what I was expecting, but refreshing and tasty. The beef stroganoff was very tasty and the chicken kebab absolutely beautiful. Cappuccino's were good. Overall, nothing really out of the box,... More

We were three persons attending the Orient Express on a night, where there were no other guest in the smoking area and four guests in the non-smoking area. So I guess, that the two waitresses didn't have too much on their hands. The staff were very nice and one of them spoke excellent english. We got our starters (after a... More

Food is good but rather expensive for St Pet, the location and what if offered. You will not face a disappointment but also nothing special.

As we expected based on our from previous stays with Orient Express elsewhere, the service was excellent. Reservation and Concierge services still managed to exceed expectations in respect of our special requests to make my 50th birthday a very special occasion. The wait for check-in was a bit slow but the welcome glass of champagne was much appreciated, as were... More

If you're looking for a spot near Nevsky Prospect for some authentic local food, Orient Express has a menu and a kitchen that will satisfy. For St. Petersburg, the prices are quite reasonable and in line with what would be considered a mid priced meal here. That's not to say it's a budget meal, but you can (and many WILL)... More

We had a very pleasant meal with a group of friends. Service wa excellent & the waitresses all spoke excellent English. A wide-ranging menu with good options for non-meat eaters. Georgian cooking v good. Negatives: only one piece of fish left at 8 o'clock on a Tuesday & food not that hot when served. We'd go again to give it... More
