    The staff were very welcoming. The food was amazing, especially Fricasse, Olivie salad and Blinchiki. The atmosphere was cozy, with a fireplace on. I will definitely recommend it

    My wife and I had the Hermitage banquet. The selection and amount of food was big, and we were truly satisfied. The charming waiter was very polite and took his time to introduce every dish to us.

    Great food and service. There is nothing negative that I can think of. I would recommend it to anyone for something a bit different in cuisine. The borscht is a must!

About the restaurant

Eat Like a Tsar There's way more to Russian cuisine than vodka (although vodka is certainly a good place to start). Nevsky Russian Restaurant in Elsternwick gives you a true taste of Russian and Eastern European fare. And don't worry — you'll get a touch of the opulence of the Tsars too. Cosy up to the fireplace in this warm and inviting restaurant. It's an ideal locale for passing chilly winter nights in Melbourne. Sample a selection of classic Russian dishes with a twist, or indulge in a decadent banquet option for two or more people. There's a function space upstairs too that serves a range of Russian-style dishes made for sharing. In the main dining room, the menu features many dishes that are gluten free, so you'll be spoiled for choice. Cold entrees include traditional Russian salad, a beetroot salad or salmon cured in vodka. Of course there's borsch – how could there not be! – or a spicy lamb soup if you're looking for something to warm you up. As you move down the menu, you'll be enticed by the range of options — crepes with mushrooms and onions, creamy veal stroganoff, Siberian meat dumplings and more. And then, of course, there is vodka. Best dish: Piroshki (house-made baked pastry filled with cabbage and egg or minced beef)
