The main street of the city is for sure a huge attraction to tourists who flock here to visit the major sightseeing attractions, as well as locals who love to strand along this street on weekends, enjoying the beauty of the city. There are numerous restaurants located on Nevsky Prospect, and below are Culture Trip’s favourites.

Russian Empir

Restaurant, Russian

Located in luxurious building of Stroganoff Palace, the Russian Empir restaurant is a place to enjoy the spirit of empire Russia, and indulge your senses with the tastes of Russian cuisine. The building itself is also impressive – a true gem of Russian Baroque style, constructed under the supervision of Italian architect Francesco Rastrelli.

Mama Na Dache

Restaurant, Russian, European

This cozy place was created to surround its guests with the relaxing, almost a home-feeling atmosphere. Located right on Nevsky Prospect, Mama Na Dache offers home cuisine, 200 sitting places, several halls, and live music each weekend.

Las Torres

Restaurant, Spanish

Those who have been walking around Nevsky at least once for sure have noticed this place – you can always hear some Spanish or Latin-American music emanating from there. A well-known place, Las Torres is offering Spanish cuisine paired with some great wines of the country.


Restaurant, Russian, European

Palkin is a historical restaurant, taking its roots from Russian restaurateur dynasty of Palkins. Opening their first bar in 1785, the business was going through good and bad times, until when in 1990s there was a chance to restore century-old traditions in the place which is now open on Nevsky Prospect. A great choice to try some Russian dishes you won’t get a chance to taste anywhere else.


Restaurant, Italian

Marcelli’s menu is based on the classics of Italian cuisine, and all dishes are prepared from natural products. The concept of the restaurant is excluding any pre-cooked products, synthetic additions etc – even all pasta is handmade there. In summer, they also have a great outdoor terrace on the street.


Cafe, Restaurant, Asian, European, Russian

For those who aren’t sure which cuisine they want to try today, Biblioteka is the answer. Occupying the space on several floors of the building on Nevsky, Biblioteka offers a variety of tastes and cuisines: European, Asian and Russian dishes are mixed there naturally in a great and tasty fusion.

Kriek Brasserie

Pub, Restaurant, Belgian

A great mix of Belgian cuisine and a huge selection of Belgian beers is offered at Kriek. The founders of this place and the team of chefs have done their best to recreate the atmosphere of a Belgian brasserie.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
