“charming, comfortable, friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Visited several times, different seasons, always satisfied. Very friendly staff, excellent food. Comfortable, bistro-style cafe. If you look for the place where you will get all above mentioned and for a good atmosphere to relax and to chat with your friends, family members, or ... whatever - ti is the most right place. Strongly recommend. The staff speaks English and (sometimes, if you got enough wine, French - at least you might suggest it IS Francais)
The toilet room is a bit exotic (the WC is erected as a throne in a tiny room situated next to kitchen and dish washing room)
In Summertime - very nice veranda, however from time to time you might be warned that babushka (the old woman) who lives at the upper floor (her window is right above veranda) will be not very much benevolent to your thick, satiated voice... It is, a part of the show, however...
Prices are high (as to the bistro) however, it is worth to visit to have a good memoire.

“Very good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Have visited the one at Andriivskyi Descent, a noisy Sunday in the heart of EURO 2012. Very good food, excellent service, quite small place but worth a visit. Don't forget to order one of the nice crepes for dessert.
