Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Baku

Alov Steakhouse
The Alov Steakhouse, located within the Fairmont Baku, offers diners an exceptional menu of imported steaks and premium wine in chic, atmospheric surroundings.
Jasmine
Beyrut
As you'd expect from a restaurant named after Lebanon's capital city Beyrut offers lipsmackingly good Lebanese cuisine to a predominantly Azeri clientele.
Trattoria L’Oliva
Offering casual Italian dining downtown is L'Oliva with traditional Tuscan décor and belt-busting Italian fare.
Shilla
As Baku's only Korean restaurant Shilla has a lot to prove; and that it does with adventurous dishes supplemented by simpler plates for the easily-scared.
Sultans
Power trippers will love the regal treatment offered at Sultans; from the majestic interiors to the authentic Azeri menu it's class all the way.
Pencere
Alpine chic is matched perfectly with authentic Azeri cuisine at Pencere; presentation is particularly pleasing.
Old City
While its décor may not promise much the traditional Azeri cuisine being prepared in the kitchen of Old City will have even the smallest eater begging for more.
Paul’s
Unless your name is Gordon Ramsay naming a restaurant after yourself is risky business; fortunately however Paul's has the goods to back it up with a brilliant Swiss/German menu and an enormous garden in which to swig beer.
Mado
Less is more at Mado where neat portions of Japanese fare are served up against a sparsely decorated backdrop.
Finestra
Italian stallions will love the trendy trattoria-style ambience at Finestra; an extensive menu filled with inspiring Italian staples add to its fabulousness.
Georgian Home
If Lewis Carroll had made a foray into interior design then Georgian Home would probably have been the result; and with an eclectic menu to match eclectic interiors it's not hard to see why its reservation book is fit-to-bursting on any given day.
Ibrus Wine Bar
Those on the liquid diet should sample the goods on offer at the Ibrus Wine Club more of an excuse to get drunk than have dinner.
Cio Cio San
You don't have to be a bookworm to know that Cio Cio San is named after the heroine in Madame Butterfly; similarly you don't need to be a die-hard foodie to know that its Japanese fare is the best in Baku.
Dalida Deluxe
Dalida is split into a restaurant and a café; the former is Dalida Deluxe and offers fine dining high above the rooftops on a gloriously sun-soaked al fresco terrace.
Azza Fyujin
The sky really is the limit for Azza Fyujin which crowns the ISR Plaza building and offers awe-inspiring Asian fusion 17 fabulous floors up.
