Had a wonderful lunch with my family in this charming place on the outside terrace. Conveniently located steps from Deribassovskaya. We had light and airy potato, cabbage and cherry pierogies. The restaurant has extensive menu with clever descriptions, lovely waitresses in national costumes. Well worth a visit.

We had a great meal at Kumanets. There's a fantastic menu with every type of local food. We had delicious borscht, stuffed cabbages, and dumplings at a very reasonable price.

Authentic Ukrainian cuisine in the most non Ukrainian city. Everything they serve is delicious but you have got to try their 'kvas'. It is the best you will find in the entire city

Very cosy and stylish place. Surprisingly efficient service given the fact that we were in a group of ten. When it comes to food: Ukrainian fare at its best. Sit and enjoy every bit and sip.

The food here is excellent. If the weather is good, take your meal on the outdoor terrace in the evening and watch the world pass by. The golubtsi and vareniki are delicious as is the borsch. If you've never tasted borsch, this is the place to try it for the first time.

This place has it all. Great Ukrainian food, really cool environment. The KVAS is about the best I've ever had. Will be going back when in Odessa.

Try the bean salads - and the little bowls of garlic'd fat on the pampushki that are automatically served - also try Mors (fruit juice from cranberries or similar) or the thicker "udvar" version. And be prepared to put on 5kg:) NOT for diabetics, nut averse, cholesterol avoiders or vegetarians

Kumanets restaurant, on the corner of Lanzheronska St and Gavana St, is well located as it is next to the city park and just a few blocks from the Opera House. The food is typical Ukrainian…..Vereneky (dumplings), Borsh, Holuptsy (cabbage rolls). Piroshkee (mini pies), deruny (potato cakes) etc etc. There is a real traditional feel to the restaurant from the... More
