“Beautiful decor. Good food as well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Wanted to take my girlfriend to stylish restaurant in city center to celebrate special occasion and a friend recommended this place!
Nothing special from outside but wow the interior is amazing! It's huge with soaring ceilings reminding me of a palace. Has a few different rooms one was traditional and the main room was spectacular have to see it! Oh yes the food,,,it was good as well had grilled fish and delicious soup. Girlfriend had foie gras and shrimp and avocado salad. I know she liked it cause she didn't offer me any!
Service was good but waiters command of English was as bad as my Russian! Oh we'll I WAS in his country! Anyway good experience expensive for Ukraine but worth it for a special occasion

“The place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This is probably the most fashionable restaurant & lounge bar in Odessa center, the competitor to Park Residence. The do have a beautiful terrace as well as stylish indoor seating. They're very friendly and flexible. For example we had a business meeting where we had to bring our own kalean (shisha; hookah) incl. stand, cooler... and they didn't have any problem with it. Sushsi was very good, as were the drinks.

When you don't want to drive out of center for a stylish evening: Ministerium is your choice!

it's pretty new, but really exellent restaurant. the building is one of the oldest in odessa- you can ask the hostess to make an excurtion around the restaurant. the cuisine is magnificent, everyone are REALLY polite with customers. the chef is a genius! each dish is exellent. its not food, its an art!
