Don't be put off by the unprepossessing surroundings. Cross the courtyard. Have a complimentary eponymously flavoured vodka shot as soon as you cross the threshold. Then choose from a very creative, enjoyable and fascinating menu--with black pudding that is better than Clonakilty. And don't miss the artwork. There is an awful much more to Spotykach than meets the eye. And... More

As it seems it is one of the best reviewed restaurants in Kiev. I need to admit that I have found it without this knowledge by accident. And I was really satisfied. Food was very good at reasonable prices.

A little bit pricey, due to the drinks, however the food was awesome. Welcomed with complimentary tiny shots of alcohol. Service was good, and in English but could vary depending on the persons assigned to your table. Original interior design, good music. Sophisticated environment.

Yes, Spotykach really be proud! With such care together under one cover the most famous culinary hits of the Soviet era have not for everyone. Here is what restaurant critics over the years will be called "Ukrainian cuisine of the Soviet period," and the mere process of reading the menu is wild appetite. Salad leaves traditional herring under a fur coat, Olivier, Mimosa Capital, salad with beans and a dozen names. Then begins an even more pleasant discoveries. Take, for example, herring with anchovies on potatoes with onions or perch with mushrooms, fried pancakes. Sated fangled delights metropolitan restaurants audience inevitably return to the simple joys that are certain to become trump card Spotykach.
