Parnas: "One to miss" European Cuisine Tip by morgenhund

European Cuisine, Saint Petersburg: 52 reviews and 64 photos

Feeling peckish and being in the area, we visited Parnas for lunch - the menu looked good and it was fairly full. Unfortunately in hindsight we wish we hadn't. The service was very slow, and the rest of the client?le appeared to be people on a long lunch break. There were a variety of mineral waters served - some Russian, some foreign - needless to say as foreigners we were automatically offered the most expensive foreign mineral waters. The breaded camembert was not bad, although the portion fairly small and the pancakes were served with whipped cream and some horrible blue vermicelli. All in all the restaurant was over-priced and not nearly as good as Bremen - where we had a great lunch, and an affordable one at that. A main course and dessert here with mineral water for two came to 825 roubles - far too much in comparison with elsewhere.
