About
During the Kyiv Rus times this location was occupied by the village Berestovo with the out-of-town residence of the Kyiv monarchs and Pecherskiy and Nikolskiy monasteries. Later the monasteries became surrounded by Lavra and Nikolskaya residential districts mostly occupied by monastery servants. At the end of the 17th century under hetman I. Samoylovych commenced the construction of Pecherskiy stronghold. The stronghold boasted three arches: Kiev, Vasylkiv and Moscow, with lift-bridges over the graff. Now, among several military bridges, the Moscow and Vasylkiv arches are still preserved. In September, 1998 our restaurant was opened in the former gunpowder storage facility of the Pecherskiy

Let's start with the positives: it's conveniently located very close to the monastery, and the place itself is worth a visit given it's extravagant decor. Food quantity was large if you're really hungry. And now with the positives that lead us to 2 stars only:...- always pushing us to buy more - the sommelier showed up even before we had chosen what to eat encouraging us to go for a whole bottle of vine, and constantly refilling our glasses so we'd empty the bottle before we'd started eating - they encouraged us to try the local soft drink (something we haven't heard of in any other Kiev restaurant) which was not very good and quite expensive - all the dishes were ok but not very good; the bread was very average and stale - the price of the salmon was per 100g and they served huge portions with large bones, resulting in a very large bill (about twice as big as all our other restaurant bills from much higher quality restaurants). We heard it's not uncommon for restaurants to price by g but in our 5 days in Kiev, we had never encountered it, and it was really not explicit this time. All-in-all, while it was an expensive ok lunch, this all smelled too much "tourist trap" for us.More

Excellent borsch! Great place to have a warm Ukrainian soup when it’s cold outside. The interior is beautiful and cozy and decorated with traditional decor and furniture. Lovely restaurant. The staff is very friendly and pleasant and speak English. I recommend this place to try...traditional Ukrainian food.More
