“Excellent delivery service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Note that this time we did not eat out in Kazbek, but used their delivery service.

The delivery from Kazbek happened to be our life-savior when Corall Hotel where we stayed refused to serve us (not even a simple sandwich!) because they hosted a wedding. And we were too tired after tough and long driving to go out for a dinner.

The delivery should be ordered not directly from Kazbek but through an intermediary, whose number I was given by Kazbek (contact me if you want their details). It was perfect: precise, punctual and prompt - within 1 hour, as promised. The menu and prices on their web-site were accurate. Payment was in cash against the delivery. The delivery cost depended on the area of the delivery (centre or suburbs) and the overall amount of order. In our case it was about UAH 20 (ca US$ 2.5) only.

Everything we ordered arrived well-packed and hot, with no extra charge for the package. All food – especially chicken and pork shashlyk and Georgian pickles – was very good. So I’m happy to improve my previous ranking of this restaurant based on this recent experience.

“Tasty and not v expensive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

I would not rate this 5 stars if it was in Kiev or Lviv, but for Nikoalev it's probably one of the top places to eat if you want tasty food. Recommended. Shame that selection of wines is quite limited and poor.

“Safe choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Kazbek Georgian restaurant is a part of Kozyrna Karta chain. It’s not bad at all, and is your safe choice for a decent meal in a pleasant atmosphere with a good service.

Located on the one-way street next to the Quay. Free parking is along the street.

I only rated it average as it has not exceeded my expectations, and in terms of food quality even somewhat disappointed. Georgian cuisine is among my favourite, so I’m really picky about it.

Bozbash lamb soup (ca US$ 5.6) was excellent - rich, reasonably spicy. So was Tavaduri pork with vegetables (ca US$ 9.3).

But then, surprisingly, Khinkali (Georgian dumplings) were served without a knob - how were we supposed to properly eat them? It was impossible to hand them without letting the juice out, so the biggest fun about khinkali was missing. In any case, Khinkali with lamb (ca US$ 5.6) turned out dry compared to the others (pork? can’t remember) we had, and with no herbs. Yet they all tasted okay, if you don’t expect Georgian quality from Ukrainian khinkali.

We normally don’t go to a Georgian restaurant for a dessert, but were keen to try their novelty recommended by the waitress - Fig and Pear pie with Tarragon (ca US$ 5.4). It turned out absolutely delicious! Unlike cheese cake with raspberry sauce (ca US$ 6), which was disappointingly poor; just a plain «syrnik».

The choice of wines by glass was not too diversified. Many of those Georgian wines that I love were missing. A glass of white Alazani Valley cost about US$ 2.5, which is certainly not overpriced by Ukrainian standards. They didn’t have any Tarkhun (Tarragon soft drink), but offered us wonderful Cranberry mors (fruit infusion).

All in all, we spent a good time here. The restaurant was almost empty, so the service was top attentive.

“Good Georgian cuisine but wine is expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

Kazbek is prettily situated just behind the mayor's office next to a park overlooking the river. In summer you can sit on the veranda and watch the world go by and the parents and children playing opposite.

Service has always been good here - reasonably swift to see to your needs, courteous and helpful in choosing unfamiliar food.

The shashliks are generally excellent both in meat quality and in spicing. I only once had a problem with the quality of the meat, and they changed it. The Georgian breads are good, with the specialities of katchapuri (like a large unleavened bread with melted cheese inside, and a raw egg, which then gets mixed into the cheese and, the edges rolled over, then serves at least 4 people!!!). The fruit juices (try fresh melon juice in summer) are good - but a fresh pineapple juice will cost you $6-7.

My only problem is the cost of the wines. With wine, you will not escape for less than 400 UAH (about$50) a head.Georgian wines are generally overpriced in Ukraine anyway; but the only alternatives are French and Italian. So the pricing is up-market, as is some of the clientele.

When you see a group of extra large Lexus and Mercedes 4x4's outside, you will be perfectly safe, but you might wonder who the t-shirted muscle-bound men are who arrive thus and frequent the place on Saturdays and Sundays in summer...

“Excellent Georgian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2010

Indeed,one of the best restaurants in Nikolayev.I've been there a lot of times-on business,with my husband and family.Food is delicious as it always is in Kazbek chain,the design is stylish,using Georgian alphabet as a decoration,but I have to mention a small disappointment by the waiter once when he "hinted" for tips and music,since I expected something traditional Georgian and not pop...
Do not miss this place when in Nikolayev!
