We visited this restaurant for lunch and really enjoyed the food. However, my husband didn't like the steak much, as it was marinated, but I liked everything I ordered (fish soup, salad, dessert). The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Description
In the early 19th, century near the downtown of Kyiv, appeared a new vivid trading place. The most delicious fruits, wine and fish from all over the Bessarabia were sold here. One hundred years later, we present another page of the history. Here, on Bessarabia square, we create the place which is dedicated to the new Southern Ukrainian gastronomy.
