FYI, I live next door to the "Soviet Café" It is located on Malia Sadovia not Nevski Prospect. I know because I live on Malia Sadovia. This is a tourist trap bar / restaurant. It is not bad but tourists who are either afraid to or do not know how to find non tourist restaurants have bloated the reviews. Not... More

Located on Nevsky prospect, funny little place on the basement of a building. Soviet style deco, and basic food menu with Russian and Ukrainian dishes. Decent prices and visited by local guests mainly (on a Wednesday night in January).

This retro Soviet cafe is a fun place to visit, in the cellar of a building on popular Nevsky Prospekt. I don't know whether the food is authentically retro Soviet; probably not as gruel and potato soup might not appeal. Think more homely farmhouse kitchen style. The service can be a little erratic, but go with the flow and you'll... More

This cafe lets you come back to the Soviet Union. The interior and the menu represent the best features of those times, and it worths visiting and, more important, coming back. It's quite cheap, but this doesn't affect the quality of food. Strongly recommended for those who want to eat with pleasure for more than acceptable price.

If you believe that the cuisine cultural of a country is an aspect that you must learn, you ought to eat in a Kvartika Soviet Cafe. The decoration is from the Soviet area, and we impressed from the house and warm atmosphere. The food is very delicious and the portions are very good. The prices is cheaper than other restos...

Authentic (more or less, it was more authentic when the place was just opening, it is less and less authentic as time passes by: the common problem with any a russian cafe/restaurant) SPb local. No chance to get gourmet food. It tried to be home away from home, but is degrading.

The reviews we had read were very good so we thought we'd give it a try and even though the clue's in the name, it was unfortunately a bit too much like a cafe for us. Quite a good selection but all a bit tasteless I'm afraid. Dumplings were nice but nothing special, the Kiev looked nice and oused garlic... More

Don't expect a gourmet meal. This is a warm and friendly place to soak in a taste of a pre-glasnost soviet Russia eatery. To enter one needs to go down a flight of stairs which already gives you a feeling of going underground.... the decor and atmosphere are happy as was our waitress. The food is very good authentic Russian... More
