I like the restaurant atmosphere, food and service. Waiter was excelent, recommend typical food and was ready to offer wine, even it is not typical for this cousine. But on the other hand, he also recommend their "house" vodka "Pervak". Service was excelent comparing with most of UKR restaurants.

Went here late one evening. Was given a menu straight away, ordered my food and drinks and was then surprised to a lovely local starter. Bread and vodka. Which proved to be a lovely start to a great meal. Really enjoyed the food and great service.

You definitely need to go there for Ukrainian cuisine. Good selection of meals, variety of local drinks (need to try Chrenovucha:)) and entertaining interior. Will visit again next time I'll be in Kiev.

Very authentic Ukrainian place, low prices, especially for tourists, a lot of tasty dishes but a little bit slow waitresses. Highly recommended to order borscht first dish!

Been here a few times and it is really great place to try Ukrainian food especially if you are new to it. They cook all classical Ukrainian dishes and also the menu is like War&Peace. You would definitely find smth interesting:) I would recommend salo, borsch and vareniki:)

Description
Pervak, one of the best folk Ukrainian restaurants in Kiev, and is located in the heart of the capital. It serves a wonderful range of freshly cooked dishes of Ukrainian cuisine. Pervak offers a wide range of traditional Ukrainian drinks and food which you can enjoy in either the big hall, or one of the small rooms decorated in Ukrainian style. Take a trip back in time to early 20th century Kyiv in one of restaurants in Kiev with great folk decor. The decor includes the showing of silent movies, and the restaurant itself is on the site of a famous merchant's house. A friendly staff in costumes serves up a variety of hearty Ukrainian dishes with inventive names, many interesting details wait for you here in one of the best Ukrainian restaurants. Pervak has succeeded in creating the perfect restaurant for tourists and locals alike, yet has not sacrificed its Ukrainian identity. The exterior of the building is splendid, and behind the door beckons a restaurant full of surprises, smiling faces and tasty dishes. It consists of seven distinct dining areas decorated in its own unique style. The Pervak restaurant has been tastefully designed to give you the feeling of old Kiev from a bygone era. It is quirky and fun, full of interesting ornaments, pictures and curiosities. And if you need any further distraction then the attractive waitresses dressed in frilly low cut folk costumes may well get you reaching for that extra shot of vodka. The menu is always refreshed and gladdens with its newcomers, you will feel the rich variety of tastes in one of the best restaurants in Kiev. We dearly preserve the best traditions of the Ukrainian hospitality and create a unique atmosphere of comfort and friendliness to be enjoyed by each of our visitors. Ukrainian restaurant "Pervak" is ideal for business meals with spaces available for private hire or with friends and family. We are proud to invite you to Pervak, to one of the eldest restaurants in Kiev.
