Bolshaya Oranzhereya Review
The best option on the grounds of the palace itself is in the palace's old oranzhereya, or garden house. A comfortable, quaint spot for a snack and cup of tea, it also serves prix-fixe Continental meals with various kinds of fish and meat, including venison and duck courses, or traditional Russian options such as borscht (beet soup) or solyanka (slightly spicy meat soup with pickles). The restaurant is open from 10 to 6 from May to October.
