I discovered this restaurant soon after we moved to Kyiv (UnderWonder was opened just before our move), so somehow it is a part of My Kyiv: by this I mean something what represents Kyiv's cosmopolitan and eclectic style, the spirit of this marvelous a hero city. Just last Sat we landed there (before Boombox concert =) and were not disappointed... More

Under Wonder has continental class. They are trying to emulate Italian and French cuisine with great merit. A fine cuisine meal with Under Wonder will cost 35 euros for 2 people, including fresh trout and celeri purée, and 2 desserts. That beats any top class restaurant in the western part of the continent. The service and setting sets you off... More

Been here with some friends and it seemed like the change to get a very good dish was 50/50, for example the beef tartar was not nicely seasoned, the meat was good, but somehow we had like pickled red peppers inside, rather than capers, cornichons, cognac, mustard. Therefore the baked figs with goat cheese have been delicious as well as... More

I've been to Under Wonder five times now. I like the food and it is conveniently located just down the road from the flat I usually stay at. I would rate the food a 4, but the service is a 1. Every time, without fail, whether it be a new face or an old face, the waiters/waitresses severely let this... More

Great design and cozy atmosphere. Under Wonder is one of the most "warm" places in Kiev. It's menu is quite balanced and most dishes are really great! You could have just a glass of wine or a delicious dinner there and would enjoy both scenarios! But, and that is really a pity, service need an improvement. Or may be we... More

My third and last visit to Under Wonder. Went there once on a "let's try this one" venture. The rabbit lasagna was delicious. Except for one thing: the rabbit meat was bad. We sent it back and were pleasantly surprised when the manager came to our table. She apologized to us personally. The waitress even said the chef sampled it... More

We were a group of 12 and have spent a nice amount of money - unfortunately there was no value for money! For instance the starter “Beef Tartar” – it says in the menu it is spicy and prepared with chili – it is FULL with pepperoni which is not the same at all. A lot of people cannot take... More
