A real Greek restaurant used to be unheard of in Moscow. Of course, you can still find a few Greek dishes here and there, but nowhere besides Molon Lave will you find an authentic Greek menu and Hellenic chef. Owner Alexey Karolidis also happens to be Greek, so we can safely declare this place genuine.

The interior resembles a Greek living room: lots of natural materials and a supremely homey atmosphere. Chef mans the kitchen and hews as close as possible to traditional recipes without completely eschewing experimentation.

We recommend: tzatziki, tacos, moussaka, and bougatsa for the table. For the main course, get kotopoulo (chicken roulade stuffed with feta) with the quinoa and cucumber salad. As for dessert, try the yogurt mousse with strawberry.

Cuisine: authentic Greek

Atmosphere: Greek home

Crowd: Greeks, gourmands, romantic couples, families with children

FYI: it is the only authentic  Greek restaurant in Moscow.
