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

We went here as a group of 6 wanting a decent dinner and were not disappointed. The service was great and the food was incredible. The food was faultless. One thing we noticed in Kiev, not just in this restaurant is that they don't serve...everyone's meal at the same time like they do in the UK. So don't wait for everyone to get their food before you start otherwise you could end up with a cold meal.More

I recently visited Under Wonder on a trip to Kyiv and I can't recommend the experience enough. We turned up around late lunch time as a group of six and was sat in the basement immediately. The ambiance of the place was sublime. Soft music,...warm lighting, friendly staff, all whist being friendly and welcoming. Both food and drinks were perfect, everyone on the table was delighted with their food and the variety of cocktails was a real crowd pleaser. As someone that worked in an Italian restaurant for a number of years I am a stone hard critic of Italian food and I honestly couldn't fault it here. Service was quick and painless and the staff spoke perfect English and we're very accommodating and understanding of our broken Ukrainian. If you ever find yourself in Kyiv and want a perfect meal in a beautiful setting then this is the place.More

Meat platter to share as a starter which was very big with good pesto type dips to accompany. Duck ravioli was gorgeous and the black ravioli with salmon and truffle was just superb! Service was excellent but even better was the price. Starter, main, desert...to share and a couple of drinks £42!!! The place is very well decorated and smart and nicely intimate but not too much. Lovely place and would go backMore

This place is usually full, so if you are planning a dinner - it's better to make a reservation in advance. The food is good and the prices are average compared to the same places in Kyiv. The menue is "standard" for many restaurants in...Kyiv (you can find the same list of the dishes in every other restaurant in Kyiv). The service could have been better. Though this place is very busy most of the time (perhaps because of the location), I didn't find it special, and didn't feel like I would want to return.More

Stopped in Under Wonder for Friday dinner with the friend. The restaurant keeps to the very high standards ( we know it for many years already) and without the reservation one can hardly get the table on Friday evenings. We were lucky this time. Food,...drinks, service - everything it top standard. Excellent choice of wines ( Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Sun was the choice for this evening), excellent menu (do not miss veal carpaccio with parmezan and truffle oil and cioppino fish soup with cream).More
