Moscow is home to some of the best Greek restaurants in Russia. While some chefs strictly use traditional recipes, others take inspiration from the centuries-old cuisine. Here is Culture Trip’s list of the top Greek restaurants in the Russian capital.

If you want contemporary Greek cuisine in Moscow, then put Molon Lave at the top of your list. Some of the delicious dishes that you’ll find on the menu include moussaka, rizogalo (traditional rice pudding), tzatziki and a variety of chicken recipes seasoned with herbs. The lamb plate, with cabbage, baked vegetables and pita bread, comes highly recommended. The restaurant also offers live music and sirtaki (a style of dance) from Friday to Sunday.

Grill & Gyros

Restaurant, Greek, European, Pub Grub, Fast Food, 0
Grill & Gyros offers high-quality Greek fast food in the heart of Moscow. There is an array of fresh and flavourful fare, including gyros with salty grilled pork, onion and garlic wrapped in pita with Aegean slaw and mayonnaise and grilled lamb or chicken with tomato, onion, tzatziki, paprika and hot pita bread.

Porto Mykonos

If you’re looking for classic home cooking typical on the island of Mykonos, then visit the traditional Greek restaurant Porto Mykonos in the heart of Moscow. Don’t forget to try dolmades, ricotta-filled pastry parcels, the pistachio lentil salad and roasted leg of lamb, all of which are available daily; the tzatziki and honey-drenched loukoumades are legendary here as well. The menu does, however, change sometimes, especially during Greek holidays.

PaPa Gyros

You don’t necessarily come to PaPa Gyros café for the décor, the traditional Greek music or the service. You visit for the food: grilled pita with black and green olives, tzatziki, and chicken. While it is always loud, crowded and located near the airport, you will want to come back again and again.
