A tiny small Cafe in government's quarter. I spent a worm and lovely dinner with my spouse. The food was fresh, hot and it was hard to stop. So we cancelled the desert, which I wanted as creme brulee. Overall, it was good.

4 months of quarantine, arriving back in the great city of kyiv , only 1 place to go to have the best eggs Benedict in the city GORCHITSA !! What’s not to like about this place !! Honestly.... when a chef can cook great eggs...Benedict , you know the culinary skills are there throughout the menu. I know this place so well, for me travelling to Ukraine..... Gorchitsa is like a long lost friend , a warm blanket. I sat on the terrace , a beautiful sunny day overlooking a quiet street new parliament buildings , it’s just a short walk up from Miadan square, the owner Joel Franz joined me , this is a man who cares about his restaurant, who cares about food , he is always here , and super friendly host , place ask for him when you visit ! Beside me was a table off 4 French business men enjoying an early lunch with chilled white wine. The staff are as always impeccable in dress and manners , honestly this restaurant is amazing French food at its best ,,, and not good value..... it’s fantastic value due to the exchange rate , my brunch less than £4 When in kyiv ... you must come here !! Excellent ! RobinMore

Having been to many restaurants in Kiev, Gorchitsa is the one I always want to go back to. Amazing service, food and atmosphere. It's been almost 10 years since I found out about this restaurant and was never disappointed. Now living abroad I can compare...and especially appreciate the service and experience created in Gorchitsa. I really miss it. Cosy atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food - the restaurant has everything to match and exceed your expectations. Looking forward to visiting Kiev and my favourite restaurant again:)More

Gorchitsa cafe is a place which I return to again and again. Whether for breakfast (omelettes are outstanding), lunch or dinner, it is always a great place to eat. Some of my favourite dishes include at Gorchitsa: for started the French Onion Soup and Foie...Gras. For the main course - any of the fish (it is all delicious), or the beef wellington is outstanding! Honestly, I rarely make it to dessert as I never have any space left, but once I had the cheesecake and it was great. The owner of the restaurant Joel is often there. He is an incredibly gracious host, always ready to make recommendations and sometimes even ready to share a glass (or bottle) of wine!More

Have been several times to Gorchitsa Restaurant and always had an amazing meal. Super foie Gras, excellent beef Wellington , simply one of the best restaurants in Kyiv for quality food. Deserving of a top 10 place I’d say !

I came here after checking reviews and photos and came away a bit disappointed. First, decor - the photos are brightly lit and make it the restaurant look attractive. For me - a winter's evening, with the tan/light brown upholstered seats, and walls that looked...like they needed a pain job it all felt a bit gloomy. Starters - french onion soup and mushroom soup - excellent. The onion soup far better than what I had at Tres Francais. Main course - duck breast and burger between potato pancakes and a gorgonzola sauce. The duck was medium rare with a very generous covering of sauce, but my wife just found it underseasoned and bland. I'm afraid I found the burger just unappetising, with a mushy texture. Service - friendly. Value for money - ok. So maybe I would go again in the day for a brighter restaurant and those eggs benedict look good in the photos, and perhaps I just chose the wrong main course.More

Well I came back in 2020 and this place is still a great secret in Kyiv. It has great food and wonderful service. We ate there last night and had wonderful food everything we had was fantastic. Overall is is colored like a cafe in...Paris. Everything from the fresh bread to the salad to soup and main course we have never been disappointed here. We had a good bottle of wine and dessert and over all the cost is really good. This is somewhere I will visit every time I visit Kyiv.More
