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.

Amazing Food, Ambiance, Service and Menu Options - says it all. A friend recommended this restaurant to me and I am very pleased. My friend also enjoyed it. Wait staff is professional and food was delicious and properly prepared.

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

Nice selection of classic European dishes- wonderful salads, soups (French Onion Soup- excellent), meat and fish dishes. Great place to pop in for some wine and a nice cheese selection as well. Breakfast, coffees and desserts, especially the crepes with orange sauce are delicious! Space is open and nicely appointed, and staff is very friendly and attentive.

Absolutely delicious meal in quiet location in Kiev. The tuna and salmon were cooked superbly and served with the best, creamiest mashed potato. Fresh and warm baguette, great service. A lovely find based on good tripadvisor ratings.
