Great menu; wonderfully cooked meat and vegetables. Scrumptious desserts. This café is run with love and it shows in the service and the food. What a contrast from some of the noisy techno-beat establishments that plague this city and the whole country.

Excellent service. Fantastic food. Nice decor approximately halfway the Abdreevski descent. Lunch or dinner. For both occasions. The home made fruit lemonades are simply the best.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Kiev and they have tasty food and a good selection of wines. Prices are fine related to the quality of the food. Its a good and secure choice to bring your girlfriend on a tasty meal. My girlfriend is a regular customer here too.

I was there with an Ukrainian lady for dinner. Place was nice and prices good. We got a good red wine to our food. Service was fine and it's close to the mosaic park in Kiev. A short walk down to city center as well. It's definitive a place I will visit again in Kiev.

I have been there twice, once on Artema for a business dinner; and once on Andrievski Spusk for the birthday of my girlfriend. In both instances, I was very satisfied - service was very good, decoration very good, menu very good, food very tasty... I would recommend, and will come back again regularly!

Vernissage fed five tired, very hungry travelers deliciously one May evening. The food and the service were both very good.

We went here for lunch. The service is friendly, and the interior is small but tastefully decorated. My italian chicken salad was pretty good, as was my partner's ravioli, though the pasta was Ukrainian style (more like dumplings).
