Well worth a visit

I was there with an Ukrainian lady for dinner. Place was nice and prices good. We got a good red wine to our food. Service was fine and it's close to the mosaic park in Kiev. A short walk down to city center as well. It's definitive a place I will visit again in Kiev.

I have been there twice, once on Artema for a business dinner; and once on Andrievski Spusk for the birthday of my girlfriend. In both instances, I was very satisfied - service was very good, decoration very good, menu very good, food very tasty... I would recommend, and will come back again regularly!

Vernissage fed five tired, very hungry travelers deliciously one May evening. The food and the service were both very good.

We went here for lunch. The service is friendly, and the interior is small but tastefully decorated. My italian chicken salad was pretty good, as was my partner's ravioli, though the pasta was Ukrainian style (more like dumplings).

This was our meal in Kiev and we were very happy with everything! The staff were very friendly and helpful. They immediately got anything we asked for without a fuss and did so with a smile. The food was excellent-we both started with Okroshka and it was delicious-if different! Loved the meal and loved the place!

This was a dinner with an old friend who knew this place. He loved it probably because of the bar which is okay, but not extraordinary. The food is supposed to be continental, but leaves a lot to be desired. I had a pesto spaghetti which was very dry and did not have much taste and the portion was very... More

The food is averagely good. The staff is friendly enough. There is a strong urine odor if you eat outside. The restaurant is located in a residential multistory building with upper floor balconies. I would strongly recommend to eat inside or have a protective helmet for your safety.

Nice little place to wind down a bit and have a quiet cup of coffee. Home made ginger lemonade was excellent - very refreshing on hot summer days.
