With exposed brick walls, an open fireplace, wooden decor and lavish chandeliers, Nevsky is the perfect setting to try out some exotic Russian food in Melbourne, radiating an old fashioned and authentic charm. When dining at Nevsky on Elsternwick’s Glenhuntly Road you will soon discover that there is much more to Russian cuisine than vodka, but with an impressive menu of premium imported bottles, it would be silly not to accompany your meal with a glass of the country’s favourite spirit.
If you are feeling slightly adventurous, perhaps go for the zharenye mozgi, crumbed and lightly fried lamb’s brains, but those less daring will find a whole host of delicious options on the menu, from Russia’s most famous dish stroganoff to sibirskie pelmeni – Siberian beef and pork mince dumplings served with sour cream. If you are struggling to choose from the massive menu, the banqueting option is a great place to start, with a speciality selected array of starters, main courses and desserts, allowing you to experience the best of Russian cuisine in Melbourne’s neighbourhood of Elsternwick.
Excellent food, great service. Would recommend for romantic dinner, family occasion or work function. Will recommend to my friends and collegues. Definitely will be back again😊
Our waitress took her time to explain the food we had since it was our first time trying Russian cuisine. Food was excellent and plenty. We did a flight of vodka, also. The whole experience was great. We will go back, for sure.
Nevsky was fabulous. All the dishes are well designed and balanced in flavour. The place is clean and the staff superfriendly. They have a gooc selection of drinks. Highly recommended.
Great friendly staff...delicious meals that are well proportioned. Need to go back to sample some different dishes! It was also great to have several vodkas explained to us and to explore different flavours and styles.
I grew up in a Ukrainian family and most my family have now passed we used to feast on all these lovely foods every Sunday. Now we don't and I miss it soo much. when I found this place I was so happy and will be back again. Also friendly staff highly recommended food was Devine.
The service was terrific and the Chef's Banquet was the best way to try a wide variety of traditional foods. There wasn't one things that wasn't delicious - and this was on a very hot day. Best restaurant experience in years and we eat out alot.
Excellent Russian restaurant. Fantastic food and very good service which is something I am used to in Russian restaurants - Nevsky is different. No bands or dancefloor just good food. You come here to eat, drink and talk not get drunk, dance and fight.
When we arrived we were greeted in a friendly manner and it did stop all night . The wait staff explain what the food was and it was very quick service . Food was very tasty and delicous.Will be back
A cosy, intimate atmosphere, excellent service and an authentic, superb cuisine. A little costly but well worth the experience and friendly staff don't rush you out the door upon completion of your meal.
The food was Wonderful and excellent table service. The restaurant was comfortably full so it was not too noisy. You do have the experience of being in Russia for a little while

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere & amazing staff! It was the second time we went there with my partner and definitely not the last one... I strongly recommend this place!
Great experience, very good food, very friendly staff. Easy booking over quandoo. The banquet option was such a good way to try multiple dishes, but still massive portions
A very warm welcome and excellent service. A jug of water regularly replenished. The food was fabulous and the menu extensive but not overwhelming. A very enjoyable evening.
