Stunning Mansarda Restaurant in St. Petersburg with views to match

Designed by Piuarch, the sparkling restaurant moves away from the mundane with an interior that is both sculptural and playful. It is the ceiling of the space that instantly steals the show with its three-dimensional, geometric design and neatly spaced oak strips that give it a dynamic appeal. Vertical rectangular glass panels placed at different angles add another intriguing visual to this Russian restaurant even though it might still be the panoramic scenery outside that garners your first attention. A flood of natural light during daytime and sparkling city lights at night enhance the atmosphere further.
