Interesting and one of the relatively old establishments in the center of Kiev. Beautiful interior and original presentation of dishes. Outwardly, this is a European-style restaurant. But this is only outwardly. The service is similar to that of the old canteen of the USSR or...the 1990s after its collapse. The waiters are not friendly, not polite. They don't communicate tactfully. When buying food to go (ice cream), they do not offer to sit down to wait for an order at a table, and if they have water or a drink in their hands, they even prohibit taking a place while waiting, even on the street. Despite the fact that it can be late evening when there are few visitors. I wish there was no such bad service and terrible communication of the waiters. I give one star for service and attitude. A separate topic is their ice cream. This is the worst ice cream (gorgonzola) I've ever eaten. It looks like a cloudy frozen block of ice. With no pronounced taste and an unpleasant obsessive aftertaste of the synthetic aroma of coconut oil. I really do not recommend spending money here and spending your holidays. It is a pity that there is no dislike function here, since this place does not even deserve one star.More

Must be the most slowest and most unattentive staff I've ever met. Started with waiting way to long for my first glass of wine. I was actually looking at the door to leave They are more interested in taking to each other. Tried to get...the wine menu. Finally had to walk to the front desk to get one. Told them I'm actually here in their restaurant and I'm not invincible. Didn't change their pace or attention. Wish I did go to the steakhouse I had as second choice instead. Food is ok. But the total experience. I would say Run Forrest Run!!More

This restaurant is open 24 hours so I dropped by early, around 7am. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere relaxed, the latte to die for ( foamy and smooth). The breakfast dish superb and healthy. A+++

So I’m walking around Kiev today, hungry hungry and tired from last night, awesome nightlife here, even in covid times. I searched for breakfast recommendations and is a fail, first restaurant l go to looks either closed or not popular and very dodgy. I’m walking...around to reach my second choice which is quite far and I find this little gem. You can’t see much from outside with the sun reflection but once you enter is a nice space all around, chic decor, comfortable seats, English speaking staff and a very tasty breakfast. Honestly everything looked good in the menu but I went for fried eggs with a couple of sides and OJ. All at a reasonable price and topped with nice lounge music in the background :)More

I sat down and ordered two dishes and two drinks. The waitress took my order without writing anything down which I didn't think anything of at the time. The first dish with salmon and poached eggs came after 15-20 minutes and it was really good....I would have preferred to have the other dish served at the same time but as I failed to mention that when ordering, I didn't mention it and decided just to wait. After waiting about 20 minutes, I asked if they had forgotten my second dish - which they had. I was already running late for an appointment so I had to leave. The one dish I got was very delicate and other than the missing order, my impression of the food and service was good. I would, however, recommend the staff to write it down when taking orders from the guests.More

Howdy, FYI This will be my 153rd review of a restaurant! What can I say... I wonder... The location is great! Sitting outside is noisy to say the least so reserve inside if possible , service was slow with only 2 visible waiters one didn't...speak English. I had the omelet with pesto and bacon 🥓... The egg was fluffy enough with an aftertaste, bacon was not of good quality... I left hungry! Price for four persons 3 Prosecco's, 4 coffee's, 4 breakfasts $53 €45... Not a bad at all. Inside is dark but cozy enough. I guess next time I'll try smth else and update this review. BTW, my GF and other couple also didn't think there was anything noteworthy about their food either. Bon appetiteMore

Kiev has a lot of breakfast places. In the mid-higher level of place, they serve pretty much the same menu at roughly the same prices. What sets Under Wonder apart is the outstanding staff. Especially as someone with limited Ukrainian it is nice to be...able to communicate with staff, they have menus in English and the staff are A+, in particular the young lady who helped resolve a small problem with my bill - to my shame I did not get her name but she was both professional and spoke excellent English. The lady I presume was the manager, Olya I think, was also incredibly helpful and courteous. I would recommend this place above even places such as Bassano nearby for a place to have a pleasant and relaxing breakfast or coffee in Kiev.More
