The interior of the restaurant and the food was very nice, but the staff lacked basic knowledge about the wines. I asked about the Ukrainian wines and the waitress told me that one of them was a rose wine, it was not. It was a very sweet dessert wine served in a red wine glass.

I was there in January. The place is really really nice and cozy, the food is delicious (especially a tuna!) and there's is also a nice bar at the ground floor where you can have a drink or enjoy karaoke during the evening / night. Definitely the place to be!

The theater is worth seeing and the performance was excellent. We had great seats on the 4th row--a very good value for the money. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but doable. Recommend waiting for 10 min. after the end of the performance to leave--it's a mob scene as people retrieve their coats from the coat check and exit... More

When we were going to Ukraine for vacation we wanted to try all the traditional food Ukraine has to offer. We went to several places and I think Opera was the best one. The food is great, nice personnel, warm atmosphere. If you want to enjoy Ukrainian food in the nice place I think you should go to Opera. We... More

Directly across from the stunning National Theater and Opera, this restaurant is a wonderful spot to enjoy a long summer evening. The view is breath-taking and the sidewalk seating is perfect. As with nearly all such restaurants in Kiev, there will be smoking and hookahs, but other than that, it is really a great experience. The menu offers everything from... More

We stopped here by chance for a light lunch and we charmed. I will definitely look in again in my next visit to Kiev. Cuisine: delicious - European and Japanese - meals are not big but made and served very carefully. Service: very attentive and polite. Big advantage: great summer terrace with the view at Ukraine Opera House.

We saw a sold-out ballet performance of two dances - - Quatro and Radiohead (utilizing the group's music) - - at the Opera House, a relic of a building, albeit not as ornate as other European venues. Nonetheless the building radiates history and the patrons reflect the trans-generational interest held amongst locals. There are few bad seats, with no need... More
