Been 5 times, 3 times outstanding, 2 mediocre. Chef owner is sometime very involved sometime not and quality changes are dramatic. Probably best luck at lunch time. Foie gras fried, veal cheecks must have. Menu is very limited.

A nicely decorated place. The food is french style and very good. The meat is certainly within the top 10 of Kiev. The price is still reasonable. Service as well is friendly and good.

We go often to Gorchitsa. The food is consistently good and the service professional and attentive (unusual for Kiev). We like the slightly lived-in feeling of the main room and the terrace in the summer. The menu is a bit restrictive and should be updated occasionally but the duck and Boeuf Bourguignon are good recommendations.

When we arrived at the restaurant there were not many guests, which surprised us, as we came on recommendation and heard it is a busy place. However the food was excellent, I had beef cheeks which were cooked to perfection. The wine list was nicely balanced and we choose a very good Rioja on a medium price level. The creme... More

I am really surprised to see this restaurant in Kiev top-10. Was there in July and my impression - not spoiled by tourists, but also nothing special. Price almost adequate.

Nice place, with a pleasant interior design. Good moode. I had a dinner. The dishes was genuine and well made, but without creativity. 2 glasses of good wine, but not high level (arrived me without the bottle, so I never will know wo was the producer, the year...) but payd 5,00 Euro each one! At the end I paid 55... More

What a great meal! From what I understand, the chef is Ukrainian. She does a stunning job of plating the food and making everything taste scrumptious. It's obvious that she takes pride in her skills. The two female servers were very professional and were more than happy to help with entree selections. One server spoke perfect English which was helpful... More

The first night of our long weekend in Kiev we decided to eat at Gorchitsa Café. A very good choice! Good atmosphere, good service and we loved the food! So we decided to eat our last evening in Kiev again at Gorchitsa Café. We loved for example the bouef bourguignon, the veal cheek, the crème brûlée.

We sat outside, which was nice. Inside the restaurant the decor wasn't so great. But the food really was. Tasty, reasonable portions, and well-presented. Prices enough for Kiev. Service good. Really, a pleasant and special meal - we would go again.
