I had been in the warm weather of summer but was now the depths of December so we were inside. Friendly staff but not great English language skills. The photo menu made up for that. The photos are almost art. I was a guest so was not paying enough attention to price, but moderate / better was my... read more

We had a family dinner here. Kitchen is really good. Some dishes are sophisticated and unusual. But at the end there was included interesting point to the bill: 'freecork'. What? I haven't seen it before anywhere? Waiter said it's payment for opening the bottle of Asti that we had ordered. Surprise, I must say. Why should I pay some extra... More

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.
