What an incredible place. The atmosphere is cozy, warm, well-designed, and yet non-pretentious. My friend and I ordered a shrimp skillet and a baked mozzarella for starters, followed by curried shrimp pasta and grilled sea bass. Everything was exceptionally good. The somelier was knowledgeable and suggested us wine from a different region we originally wanted to go for - but... More

The seasonal menu is superb and changes regularly. Especially loved the pumpkin ravioli. A bit overdone not the salt of late, so have started to ask for my meals without salt.

Very good cuisine. Famous Kyiv restaurant from famous Kyiv restaurateur :) One thing to notice - it's not a cheapest restaurant, but of course all of us would like any restaurant to be not expensive. :) My personal opinion - the service could be a bit more professional (visited in Sep'13), but it was not bad in general and I...

The pasta here is wonderful. I ordered curry shrimp pasta, super good. My husband ordered some veggie pasta, also excellent. Only one prob is food came very very slow, but the restaurant was not full at all. It was a Friday night but not busy. Shouldn't take that long. Don't understand why. It's a place that I will go back... More

My most favorite place in Kiev; fantastic combination of food quality, atmosphere and service quality! I visit it each time I am in Kiev. Please make sure you pre-book your table - sometimes was struggling to get a table even in the afternoon.

Consistently amongst the best food in Kiev! By far not the flashiest place, Pantagruel gets it's frequent A List celebs and businessmen and politicians just because of the excellent food. In the summer there is a good terrace, otherwise it's in the basement. Just recently I saw one of the Ministers eating there, music celebs etc. Perhaps it's not surprising... More

Pantagruel remains consistently the best italian in kiev. Today pappardelle with mushrooms and ossobuco with risotto and half barolo. Service fast, reasonable prices. Follow me on Twitter for more @foodpasha.

It used to be my favorite place during the early 2000-ies but I stopped going there after 2005. This week I went back with an old friend and the place is still great. Still great wines for a reasonable price and the food is still very nice. Service is good, atmosphere is good: all good. The fact alone that they... More

I have eaten here a number of times and tried various dishes during my various business trips to Kiev. I love it and think it is great food at reasonable prices. The service is fast for Kiev. If you enjoy rabbit - make sure you try the various rabbit pasta dishes - they are just to die for. I have... More
