“By mistake”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

A friend of mine recommended to visit this place saying " you'll be able to try real soviet food". However, it looked to me like a regular cafe. The food is average, staff members arevat the same level. Later I learned there is another Kompot but I never tried it.

“A place to relax after wandering the streets of Odessa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Kompot in Panteleymonovskaya ulica is one of (at least) two restaurants from the same chain (can you call it a chain if there's only two?), but the one with most charm. On the corner between Panteleymonovskaya and Risheljevska, it's a lovely place to watch the hectic comings and goings of the street life to and from the city centre and the big Privoz Market just down the road.
With good outside seating, you can linger long without any rush from the staff to finish. The interior has also got a unique and fascinating decoration, well worth a visit in its own right.
Kompot serves good food and drinks - and excellent chocolate and cakes. But a warning: too much of the latter is only good if you've got a very sweet tooth.
Prices are decent. In fact, Kompot was among the best value restaurants we visited during our four days in town. Maybe that explains why we returned two days in a row.
The service is excellent. Though only a few of the staff speak good English, there always seems to be someone on duty that does. Food arrives quick enough to please, but not so fast that you can't enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. And should you have any requests, the staff do their best to accommodate you.
And when you pay, there's a small extra bonus: It's "served" in a jar together with a little gift of a magnet with the Kompot logo. Not a big thing, but something I appreciated, and a charming souvenir from the place.

“Great location with rude staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I came for a breakfast to that place at 7:52 am and it works from 8 am and i was ignored by restaurant staff by 8:22 am. It was a great quality breakfast with bad service. I was surprised when i was found out that Steakhouse beside this place is owned by the same guy as that place. Don't recommend to go to Kompot.

“basic, simple and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Tasty basic Odessa and Ukrainian dishes - 'shuba', varenikies; not expensive (value for money); waiters are fast though sometimes forget what you have just asked them (though they sell and upsell well). Superior location at Deribassovskaya (main promenade) street.

“Very nice place”

Doesn't matter if you looking for interesting authentic place with nice food or just looking for quick meal - you will be not disappointed. One of the best places in Odessa with adequate ration price/quality.
