Situated in a posh and quiet area in central Kiev, this is s small, elegantly furnished place with, I believe, fewer than 10 tables and a very friendly and attentive service. The food is excellent, today I had their pumpkin creme soup with shrimps and then fish escalopes in lobster sauce - fabulous! In the summer one should try their... More

From the moment we arrived the staff immediately showed us to our selected table. Some very drinkable organic Cabernet Merlot well priced. Sensational gnocci, escargot, and goats cheese apertisers.

Everything is really tasty, especially fois gras, escargots with butter and garlic. True to say I'd like they have more place as I don't like to hear others' conversations... All the rest is great.

A charming traditional restaurant with a small but varied menu. I had a seafood rissoto which was excellent. Cosy with personal service and good English spoken. All a 10 minute walk from the centre of town. Highly recommended.

We had the last lunch of our visit, after eating at Shoti and Odessa (twice each), and I can tell that although they're all good restaurants, Gorchitsa deserves the first place. As good as Shoti might be, the Georgian cuisine limits it in a way. Odessa's fusion exploring molecular cooking is young and refreshing as its dinners. Gorchitsa, on the... More

If Michelin gives stars based on consistency then Gorchitsa should get one. Yes, the menu doesn't change all that often and it's not new new new. But, if you want an excellent meal with all your expectations met then this is the place to go. I have been here over a dozen times and frankly while it's not that exciting... More
