Location and contact

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

Be aware that you might be full after appetizers.That good they are and you will be tempted to try all of them and eat a lot. And the service is great! I definitely recommend it. You won't be sorry.

This place felt a little artificial. The service was good and staff friendly. The food was good and plentiful. To be fair we went on a Tuesday night in the winter but the place felt a little flat with little atmosphere.
