This was like walking through a door into the age of the czars, a quiet and discreet restaurant full of period atmosphere and attentive service. The food was excellent, and from blinies to Chicken Kiev a taste of traditional Russia. A very private experience.

We each had the oven baked cabbage rolls which were outstanding. Grilled meat inside was delicious...More

The food was really good: can recommend bear, blinis and steak Novgorod (it was so soft that you could cut it with a spoon). I would have given 4/5 points, but: narrow vodka selection, weak espresso and service without smiles. There was only one wine...More

We came here for dinner. The place is nice and well kept, seems to be in another era, but more you stay in this restaurant and more you think: "why didn't they do it a bit better?". Let's talk about food. Food was good and...More

Bellevue is the oldest Russian restaurant in Helsinki, founded in 1917 and has ever since been known for its good food and unique atmosphere. The old and valuable paintings, chairs and chandeliers take you back to the days of the Czar. The authentic Russian atmosphere is completed by classical Russian music in the background. Also the menu brings old Russian cuisine to you. The chefs are flexible and highly professional, so if one of your favorite classic Russian dishes is not on the menu, it is always worthwhile asking for it. There are also three private rooms in the restaurants.
