Good food

Ate at Gorchitsa twice, even met the owner Frenchman who is a very friendly and hospitable guy. Once tried their steak and it was delicious, tiramisu is also very good. Service was efficient - not many people were at the restaurant both times. Worth a visit in general.

We visited this place once and had very average experience : strange interior, not bad food, but nothing exciting.

Food was surely not bad but found it nothing romantic, more for business maybe. Prices were bit higher but still ok.

After reading many reviews, I finally decided to have brunch here. We were there about 10 min before noon so we were able to get brunch. Poached eggs dish and omelet were both very good, especially omelet was huge. It's cozy and cute inside. Great place for date out. Fresh baguette was so good Staff speaks decent English. Very reasonably... More

We have read a lot about this restaurant and have been planning to go here quite a few times. Now prices in Kyiv are low for foreigners because of the exchange rate, and it has suddenly become less expensive for us. We arrived on a Saturday evening, and found ourselves to be the only guests in the restaurant. And no... More

Gorchitsa offers by far the best real french food in Kiev. On top of that, it is located in Lipsky which is probably the nicest district in Kiev. Prices are very correct and the terrace in summer is nice.

Great place. In Kyiv is hard to find quality food and Gorchitsa is a pearl between others. Definitely will come back. Recommended - the broccoli soup

Sitting in the very center of Kiev this place offers Alsatian cuisine for a decent price with a great service, so if you are going to visit it at weekend night be sure to make a reservation as it has only 30 sitting places inside. In summer time you have the choice to sit outside. The quality of food is... More

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.
