Familia is a Food Temple for sophisticated clients! Quality from beginning to end! Their links to the original European elite chefs concepts from 150 years ago is fascinating. The epitet "Little Paris" earned by Kharkov long time ago is transformed into modern cuisine and well balanced plates of selected meals! Although prices approach West european brand names, the occasion certainly... More

Dropped in earlier in the day to have a look and was totally welcomed from the start. Returned later for dinner and they seemed genuinely happy to see us back. Looked a bit classy so wasn't expecting anything too cheap and it was a little highly priced. Super friendly and efficient staff with good food.

Yes, the service was excellent and overall I could leave only positive feedback but: 1) comparing to many other places it is overpriced 2) variation of Ukrainian food (may be east European). With an Italian name I was hoping to get some Mediterranean taste.

I had read the previous reviews and thought that this would be a nice treat. Well it wasn't, the server was arrogant, the fish was cold. Considering the restaurant was practically empty the service was very very slow! I don't think I would recommend this place to anyone!

This is supposed to be one of Kharkiv's best restaurants. This evening it was not. The waiter misunderstood our wine order. The starter was ok. The main course was duck which was really disappointing. In light of the price level the quality ought to have been much much higher.

I discovered this restaurant couple of years ago, and every time I am in Kharkiv it has become compulsory for me to visit for dinner. I also had multiple team dinners here as well. Have not been disappointed. Great food, and cozy and classic decor. Little in the expensive side, but I would say it's worth it.
