This is a classic Russian restaurant that has been open since 1917. The atmosphere is from the 1940s, the food is fantastic and the service is really good. We always come here during our visits to Helsinki!
I don’t often wax lyrical about restaurants, but Bellevue is one that warrants it.
The interior is romantic, Russian style without being a caricature, and light jazz playing in the background in low volume adds to the sophisticated atmosphere.
But the food is what really...stands out here.
We chose the Bellevue Menu, which started with a generous selection of zakuski, Russian appetizers. Everything was prepared with thought and care, from simple potato salad and sauerkraut to the crispy-but-fluffy blinis. How the manage to make pickled herring that melts in your mouth is a mystery.
I had the beef fillet for mains. I had requested medium rare, and it was spot on. It was also amazingly tender, perfectly seasoned and full of flavor, especially when you created a morsel of little bit of everything (beef, jus, mushrooms and celeriac) on the fork. My husband was equally happy with the fish - everything on the plate worked together.
The dessert was a deconstructed pavlova, and it did not disappoint. Especially the white chocolate mousse and blackcurrant gelee together were a match made in heaven.
We will definitely be back.More
