Beff stoganoff looks like sushi, borsch (ukrainian red soup) - like eskimo ice cream, "varieniki" (ukrainian ravioli) - one yellow, another - blue (flag colors). Hmmm. Throughout the dinner feared be poisoned. Waitress unprofessional. Interior eclectic.

Definitely the best place we visited in Kiev! The food was not only really delicious, but also followed an interesting concept, there was nothing boring about it. It was the only place in Kiev were the staff was smiling to us the entire time! The prices are quite high for Ukrainian standards, but for any foreigners they shouldn't be a... More

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.
