Very close to the Mukhinskoye Institute of Art and just 5 minutes from the Summer Gardens is one of the very few vegetarian restaurants in Saint Petersburg. It has become a real hit in the city as Russian cuisine is usually quiet meat heavy and it is a welcome find for those who don’t eat meat or simply fancy something different. The menu is very international, so expect to find dishes such as hummus, tabbouleh, salads or tomato soup alongside a range of Japanese, Indian, Russian and Italian food. The Botanika restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere, predominantly green decor and a playroom for kids, making it ideal if you're travelling with children. It might not be as cheap as other restaurants, but it isn’t extortionate.
