They serve ok food but even though they say that they work till 24:00, they didn't accept to serve food just after 22:00. It happened 2 times and I think this is really annoying.

The food is good, the interior is pleasant, the beer is average but fresh. Lots of beer snacks in the menu.

Food is good, but they never seem to have the beer that's on the menu. Each time I go, I ask for a beer and they always say they don't have it. Take it off the menu!

So proclaims the fun (english version) menu at the Black Piglet Beer restaurant. Great beer, friendly service and wonderful food - in a very central location. What else would you want? Oh right. Meat. Well, you're in luck, because meat, there is aplenty at the Black Piglet. Sausages, most homemade, grills, cooked meats, cold meats...if it goes with beer, they... More

Stopped here for a snack and a drink midday whilst on a city break, really lovely staff, I asked for a beer and she told me it had run out, then 15 minutes later she appeared with a small glass for me. The menu is very entertaining with poetry and humour. Toilet was sparkling clean. Everyone helpful. Fun quirky place,... More

Listed as 'brisket of beef on bone' on the menu, the veal chops at this place are excellent. Beer is OK microbrewed stuff, service friendly if slow. Superb iron pig figurines for $7.

Went here with my local friends from Kiev. The food is really tasty and the atmosphere friendly. Good beers, great meets, delicious Salo... what more can you ask for? Of course do not attempt if you are vegetarian (even though one of my friend was and got a funny looking potato sausage).

Centuries later, the "Black Piglet" gathers together everybody who knows a lot about good beer. As at that time, today here lingers hopped spirit of fun, fellowship and fraternity."Black Piglet" has three rooms: the main and two for banquets, so it is perfect for a friendly beer parties, conceptual wedding, and for a great variety of celebrations and holidays. In the menu of the restaurant there are the best assets of national cuisines of Germany, Austria, Hungary and Ukraine. The pork is treated with great reverence here. The menu is full of delicious dishes: a variety of meats, special homemade sausages, original and favorite dishes from poultry and fish (and poltavskyi crucian carp, which is sung in the "Aeneid" of Kotlyarevskyi!), as well as vegetarian meals, and, of course, pork knuckle "Aysban", prepared under the author's recipe of the chef Oleg Bilous. The cozy atmosphere of the restaurant "Black Piglet" again and again attracts visitors for companionship, excellent beer and big delicious snacks.
