We had a delightful dining experience here. The decor is elegant and the wait staff speak reasonably good English which was helpful. The food was beautifully presented and tasted very good. Free wifi was a lovely bonus.

Stumbled upon this place by accident. Fantastic location, right next to the Winter palace square. Great prices, great service, great food. The dumplings, stroganoff and the bread basket with garlic butter work a treat together. Service is amazing too.

Dvortsovaya Square – is the heart of Saint-Petersburg. The main places of interest are located nearby - the Hermitage, the Admiralty and the Arch of the General staff which frames the Square. Keeping on city’s cultural traditions The «Holst Maslo» restaurant is situated just there at 4 Bolshaya Morskaya street almost under the Arch.
The location in one of the most fashionable streets of the city with its elite banks, business centers, luxury shops and jewelry boutiques influenced the «Holst Maslo» conception.
Bright modern two-storey restaurant impresses guests with its interior design elegance which reflects classical Saint-Petersburg culture. Luxurious black and gold floral ornaments resonate with a figure of tracery discs which decorate the ceiling and walls. The theme of art is emphasized by stylized palette which decorates the celling of the second floor and original covering: cloth pallets and small easels for the menu.

The second floor hall is suitable for private parties and banquets, it is equipped with professional sound and light devices, also there is a small stage for any performance. Here you may also enjoy listening to exclusive and the only one in Saint-Petersburg grand piano «Crystal». Also on the second floor you can find a cozy vip-room with soft sofas. And the main highlight in decoration of the hall is unique gold hand-made pair of chairs with angel wings.
Holst Maslo is situated inside the epicenter of cultural life of Saint-Petersburg and its guests are educated people who are interested in arts, culture and good music. That’s why «Holst Maslo» is also an art-salon with various exhibitions, creative parties and Russian modern painting that you can buy.
