Taleon Restaurant in St Petersburg







Taleon Restaurant is one of the few places in St. Petersburg where the guests can dine in historical 19th century palatial interiors. Located in the former study and reception rooms of Stepan Eliseev, the last pre-revolutionary owner of the palace, the restaurant preserves the splendid atmosphere of gala age.

The former reception room on the left side of the restaurant is decorated in Louis XVI style. The former study on the right side is decorated in Empire style of Napoleon Bonaparte. Egyptian sculptures Victoria and Glory staying between the columns as well as Egyptian female figures on the fireplace enhance the beauty of the room.

Two original plafonds dominate the ceiling decor. The central one images the Mercury, the patron of trade, and Fortuna, the goddess of luck and success. It is well known that Eliseev dynasty was accompanied by luck and fortune in creation of the famous Eliseev Trade House in Russia. The other plafond images Apollo, the patron of art, and his muses Terpsichore and Erato. This plafond reminds us that Stephen Eliseev was philanthropist and fond of art and culture.
