Absorb yourself in Russian culture at Nevsky, a traditional Russian restaurant located on the bustling Glenhuntly Road in Elsternwick. This small restaurant tucked away in the suburbs of Melbourne has a lot of character, and it’s here that you can try out culinary delights from Eastern Europe with a menu full of exciting options ranging from starters to main courses as well as their indulgent banqueting option which allows you to dine just like a tsar.
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.

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.
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.
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
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.
