We (two adults and one kid) visited this restaurant for dinner, after having a breakfast some time ago. It is a rather small restaurant with a personal touch. The food is "international" style, from inevitable Caesar salad and Caprese to not very common meals (at least in Kiev), like duck confit and goose fillet. We had local steaks cooked in... More

Had a lovely evening at Under Wonder -- a small, comfortable restaurant in the City Center with comfortable tables, a quiet, pretty ambience, spot-on food and attentive service. For our meal, each of us started with soup: I had a delicious fish soup with generous portions of seafood and my companion chose the gaspacho which was light and delicious. For... More

I wrote a positive review a long time ago, but now I'm nothing but disappointed everytime I go back. The service got worst although it was always a hit or miss, but the food is very disappointing. Dishes that I loved before are now unrecognizables, I don't if they changed the cook or what. Now I would only consider going... More

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
