Melbourne's Russian Restaurants

Melbourne's south-eastern suburbs play home to a handful or so of authentic Russian restaurants that encompass not only tasty European cuisine but also provide live music, the opportunity to BYO wine and spirits at no corkage as well as some of these restaurants staging a live show of traditional Kozak dance.

Russian restaurants stand apart from the myriad of European restaurants around town due to the following distinct features:


Be it a birthday, anniversary, dinner dance, engagement party or even a wedding, Russian restaurants will cater to your personal needs with the convenience of a function coordinator. Anything from flowers to chair and table decorations can be organised with ease.


Live bands create the fun and vibrant ambience that Russian restaurants are known for. Playing anything from Russian pop and trance to commercial beats and a wide range of international beats, you will be dancing 'til the cows come home!


Get ready for banquet-style cuisine to remember. Prior to arriving at a Russian restaurant, the best advice to offer a newcomer is to eat lightly all day in preparation for your European feast. Generally, the individual restaurants can cater to your function's needs, however a set menu of entree's, mains, dessert and 'in-betweens' will be brought to your table without an inch of tablecloth in sight!

Dishes may include:

Most Russian restaurants operate on Friday and Saturday nights, with other times available for private bookings.

Banquets start from $55 per person.
