- Crocodile has been on Galernaia Ulitsa next to the Bronze Horseman for a while now - it lies just by the Senat bar and a brisk five minutes before Le Francais, both of which are more upmarket efforts than Crocodile itself. It's popular with foreigners and fashionable Russians, both of whom are attracted by a stylish interior - the light fittings are in the shape of minimalist and slightly distorted crocodiles, and the wooden furnishings and shrubbery attempt a 'jungle cabin' effect. The food is a little more conventional than the surroundings, and includes European (principally Italian - spaghetti stands out) as well as standard Russian dishes. The baked vegetables with mozarella cheese and the Caesar salad are the best among the starters. The second section through the back is good for group bookings.
