Saint Petersburg, Russia
Yolki Palki Saint Petersburg Reviews
Sep 11, 2005
I think that this restaurant was part of a chain. The theme is village life, with waitresses dressed in what look like traditional country costumes, and good old-fashioned dishes on the menu.
We didn't really have the best time finding good places to eat in St Petersburg, and we were trying to save money. We were also struggling to translate the meuns, and the fact that not much English is spoken in Russia (this was a surprise to us).
The food at Yolki Palki was pretty good, and not expensive. One of the best things about the place when we went (which isn't necessarily a reason to recommend it, as this is very likely to have changed) was that we got the most patient and understanding waitress you can imagine. She did her best to help us wherever possible with translations, and she waited patiently as we compared the menu to our phrasebook to try to work out what things were. It made a real change from the usual problems we had had making ourselves understood.
