Had an early dinner on our last day before heading to the airport. The food was really nice and the service excellent! Hope to come back another time to try something else from the many dishes in the menu. This time we had grilled halibut,...cabbage rolls, mustard potatoes with avocado (!!!), a lovely salad and grilled vegetables. And for dessert the amazing pumpkin strudels… a perfect end to a lovely meal. All in all we were so glad we ended here, it was the best end to our visit to Ukraine.More

This restaurant is inside the park. We loved the surroundings of the restaurant & the inside decorations. It is a big restaurant with two floor sittings. The service & food was very good. We had Mackerel with vegetables and river trout. Both dishes were tasty....I recommend this restaurant.More

Food is ok also the location (in park) but service it’s a joke. At least on terrace... Several waiters looking at you as you come and...nothing. I had to pick menus by myself and when signaled a guy to come for order he suggested to...wait....why rush 🤷‍♂️ And it’s not the first time plus same feedbacks from friends.. Generally a touristic trap, obviously (really) last time here, even though generally Kiev is not a ‘service oriented’ place, here you get the worse of it . P.S. after 30 min from order, not even tea or table set up was brought (while some girl and guy do nothing at entrance) BUT...another waiter asked us what we want to order 😂More

It's an under mediocre cuisine and service. The place is nice food is bellow average with high prices on what you get. Salad was nothing special, Varaniki were overcooked a lot as well too fast on too high temperature cooked weal chicks, seasoned as someone...did it for the first time. The famous Kyev chicken was totally dryed out meat in too oily frying. Mashed potatoes made from dryed potato sack. Service: waiter brought starters at ones, then few minutes later - we've been still eating starter (not even half) Chicken Kyev arrived. About 10min later the weal arrivedMore

If you want to have a folkloric dinner with good value food and wine, you found your place ! Service is also of good quality, with good English spoken.

Set in a lush green park the restaurant enjoys a nice location and is easy to find. Inside and outside eating options. We were a large group of 30 and booked ahead instead of a being seated on a big table ended up in small...groups on different tables which was less than ideal. The menu is a blend of Eastern European and interspersed with a few western options. There was a broad choice so all were happy. The food we ordered was good although the portion size was small. The food price was reasonable. The drinks price was inflated. Overall, a pleasant meal but not one I will be remembering. Happy to have been once and experienced the establishment but I am unlikely to return.More

We really loved this restaurant : nice place, welcoming staff, amazing food. We came two times during our stay in Kiev trying several specialties as Kiev chicken (the best we tried in Ukraine), tasty varanyky and soups, and perfect deserts. Good choice of local wines...as well.More

We ended up walking through the park and finding this place randomly. We definitely were happy we stepped in, as the place is absolutely beautiful, and with such a charming architecture. We had a few drinks upstairs, and our server was super nice and friendly....I definitely recommend going there even for only one drink!More

Thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside and having a coffee. Nice atmosphere, clean facility, and nice staff. My wife and I had 3 coffees, a bottle of water, and 2 desserts. The price was 450 UAH. We will be back.

Beautiful restaurant in the middle of a park. Value was really good but slightly disappointed by slow service and lack of attention.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel so we expected it to be quite good. Unfortunately it was the opposite! The grilled meats we ordered medium rare were well done at best—dry and chewy. I had eaten Kyiv cake twice before at two excellent restaurants...and decided to try it once more. When the cake arrived with a steak knife, I knew I was in trouble. The meringue which is supposed to melt in your mouth was was so hard I thought I would break a tooth! The cream was dry and the cake was inedible. It was a very disappointing experience.More

On a cold winter night, this cozy spot made me feel like I stepped inside a Christmas ornament. I enjoyed it so much I returned the next week. All told I tried chicken soup, cabbage rolls, herring/beet app & beef tenderloin. I expected the home...style Ukrainian dishes but was blown away by the tenderloin, perfectly cooked & accompanied by berry sauce. Traditionally dressed musicians provided a jovial atmosphere.More

I have been here for the first time with friends from Kiev. Then I went there several times because I liked it. The restaurant is in a wooden hut in the Shevchenko Park, in a central location near the university. The interior is quite original...and pleasant, but the outdoor terrace, which overlooks the park, is very pleasant in summer for both meals and aperitifs. The food is quite good, and the prices are mid-range with traditional or international cuisine.More

I had the mushroom soup with homemade dumplings in bread crust and the chicken shashlik with fried potatoes. Though both of the meals were quite simple by themselves, they were excellent in taste and set up nicely on the plates, which also made them look...really appetizing. Additionally, the service was very kind and English-speaking, which made everything smoother with my poor Russian/Ukrainian language skills. Overall, a pleasant experience and certainly worth the money.More
