“Worst food ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Based on tripadvisor this should be one of the best restaurant in Kiew. It is not. We had a waitor that was not interested in serving us, even though the restaurant was almost empty. The wine waitor showed up after we had ordered the wine, and it took a very long time to get the food. For my main dish I had seabass with a side order of vegetables. The seabass turned up but not the vegetables. I asked the waitor were they were, and he answered that it would take at least 5 minutes until they were finished. I had to stop him and explain that in 5 minutes my food would be cold. I got the same fish back after 10 minutes with frozen vegetables. I complained as I would expect a expensive restaurant like this to serve fresh vegetables and not reheat the fish. As a compensation we would get free dessert. The dessert took 45 minutes to make and was completely inedible. Maybe a good place for whisky, but stay away from the food!

“Great place for Whisky tasting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Whisky corner is the regular place for "Spirit club" where you are welcome to taste different strong drinks specially Whisky. The event takes place once or twice a month. Restaurant have wide variety of finest whisky that you can try and food is similarly good. Portion are small though and a little pricey. Perfect atmosphere to sip your whisky with some good snacks.

Exemplary whisky restaurant with good single malts on the shelves. One of the best whisky sommeliers in Ukraine. Not cheap but very autenthic. Reccomend for whisky lovers

“Excellent but pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Great food in a very clean, new and stylish environment. We learned later from local friends that only politicians and other important/wealthy people eat here. Certainly explains why the food, decor and service were outstanding but pricey. I'd go back again in a second.
