Borsch Vodka and Tears is one of the best vibes in Melbourne for those looking for an edgy night out. There's an amazing Eastern European ambience as you step into a restaurant that seems somewhat like a club. I caught up with a good friend from Adelaide here at a table with Engineers with an Eastern European background.


The place was buzzing at 8.30pm on a Thurday night and you couldn't get a seat. it was a wonderful cacaphony of taste, colour and loud conversation. It had the feeling of a European restaurant. 


Is it a cafe? Is it a restaurant? Is it a bar? All of the above. The drinks here include some exotic cocktails and a depth of vodka list. The Eastern European diners at the table were impressed with the vodka selection.


As for food this is a unique Melbourne experience. (oops I ate some of above before photo). The Polish dishes have a home cooked yet professional tone about them. Check out the polish style tapas known as przekaski including antipasto with gypsy ham and kransky or the one that includes herrings and whitebait. Or check out the crispy fetta rice balls or the salt and pepper squid.

Of course there are polish sausages and delicacies such as polish dumplings.

The Goulash beef stew is a winner as is the roulade of scotch fillet.

And the desserts are excellent including the Russian crepes.


The ambience at night is darkish with mood lighting and charming European fittings and decor. Grab a table along the wall or from the back or front sections.

A popular and pumping place to visit...
