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.

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
