This is one of those places in Kyiv where you are not rated by your looks. The stuff is friendly and not arrogant, like in many Kyiv places. The sort of food served is Ukrainian cuisine with a twist - you will enjoy. As a...local whenever my foreign friends visit, I take them here. On Friday nights you can enjoy good live music, which even a very critical about live performances person, like me, will find enjoyable (no Russian accent in numerous performances was noticed). Furthermore, my favourite cocktail ever is prepared here and only here, it's called Mysterious Gimlet and is an absolute must try here. Last but not least, if you are into shishas, there's an area for it too with good air conditioning system, so that you will not sit in a steamed hot space.More

As often, when away my restaurant guide is heavily influenced by TripAdvisor. Lovely service, phenomenal food. Servers were also fluent in English, which is a great help to me. I had the Green Borscht which was very nice followed by the Wild Boar Cutlet. Oh...yes craft beer as well. Nicely priced with enjoyable & varied background music.More

Food was absolutely great and the staff were so nice and spoke good English. The price was more than fair, we would have no problem with paying more than we did for the food. The portions were a bit small for an adult, but the...taste made up for it. It was also a bit inconvenient that drinks and food/service was not on the same bill but just a minor inconvenienceMore

Very cozy atmosphere and great food and cocktails. Waiters and waitresses are very polite and professional. I tried to wipe the table with alcohol where we were at but it’s very clean already. Staff advised that all Tables are cleaned with anti bacteria with hand...sanitizer cleaning everywhere. Staff wearing masks and gloves. Especially during covid time, this is the best safe dining experience so far in Kiev. Waitress Lena is very nice and professional! We are very happy and satisfied to have lunch here. We will be back again for dinner tonight. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.More

We missed Barvy on our last visit to Kyiv, caught up this time and were not disappointed. The menu contains a lot of interesting options, mostly traditional Ukrainian dishes presented in a modern "high cuisine" fashion. You might think this is a place for tourists,...but my partner is Ukrainian and she was quite nostalgic with the choices on the menu and happy with the quality of what we tried. Every dish was very well prepared and tasty, at prices I would consider very reasonable for the quality. I do not necessarily subscribe to the restaurant's philosophy that the best drink pairing with the menu are cockatils, but I happily admit that their cocktails were first class and original. Staff was attentive, helpful in explaining the menu options, but not intrusive. Highly recommended if you want to try Ukrainian dishes in a sophisticated setting.More

After living in Kyiv for 2 years, we had the chance to discover the Barvy and we were not disappointed. Food was top quality. We enjoy Chicken Kyiv & Grill Trout... both were exceptional. The food offers traditional Ukrainian dishes, but with a modern perspective....A refreshing change of pace when you want to try Ukrainian cuisine, but desire fresh and quality dishes. The server (Kostya) was very helpful in suggestions and offering us a taste of the restaurants best desserts! By the way, do not miss the desserts! We will definitely come again, and will explore more options on the menu. Sunday offers a beautiful brunch, which we did not try.More

The food was very good, I was there as a part of a large group, about 10 people. It felt a bit hipster when I went in and sure enough the food was served on chopping boards and not plates. Can you remember when food...was served on plates in restaurants? The food was very good and I ordered the chocolate cake for pudding which was divine. The beer was 120 (circa £4) UAH though, for Kiev, this was incredibly expensive. If you want a few beers then decamp to another establishment.More
