Amazing food in a cosy environment! From the very first bite it was a celebration of taste! Can really recommend this place- fresh seafood and fish perfectly prepared, great deserts! Next time I’ll try meat dishes. Thanks to chefs and personnel for a wonderful experience!

Friends suggested Odessa as it was close to their Airbnb. While reviews seem patchy we had a very good meal. Afterwards another friend said that they had gone there a couple of years ago on more than one occasion and it had been very good...but it had fallen away and they had not been back for some time. So inconsistency may be just change of staff. We had duck fillet and turkey fillet and both were very good with excellent celery puree for both and good sauces. My wife ranked the duck as the best meal we had in our week in Kiev. We had the made in front of you icecream which was extremely good with an element of comedy to the preparation with the chap who makes it reading from a script with veyr stiltered English, but the whole performance becomes funny (in a nice way). Service was friendly, so all in all a very pleasant eveningMore

Modern at the same time quiet interior for relaxing rest. The big windows with city view. Staff were polite, friendly and service was really fast. Tasty and fresh meal. They offer breakfast everyday, it's really convenient if you prefer to have breakfast out of home....I'll certainly be back here. Дякую, було смачно.More

The restaurant is said in the center has a very nice atmosphere. Their fish dishes are quite good I recommend the Dirado or the tuna. It is a very nice location to go before seeing a performance at U cream Palace. They have a special...strawberry Napoleon which happens to be my favorite Napoleon in the city.More

Excellent decor. Very good service. Prices reasonable- but in the high end for Kyiv. We had 5 dishes to share - which worked very well. There is a panache how the dishes are served which made it fun.some dishes - eggplants, oliver salad- were truly...wonderful, much recommended. Foshmak was good and well presented. Desert was the weakest but still was not bad. All in all, wonderful place to visitMore

We were a large group eating there to celebrate a friend. We trusted them to pick a few dishes for the group to ease the workload and they contiued to pick the most expensive dishes they could, adding on extra to the bill. The fish...that was served made four people in the group ill afterwards, and when we disputed the charges on the bill they locked the doors and wouldn't let us leave.More

We ordered from the menu but they insisted we take their recommendations without informing us about the price. The food was disgusting (overcooked) and insanely expensive! We were a group of 20 of which 15 got food poisoned and ended up spending the rest of...the evening at the toilet. Chernobyl was nothing in comparison. The staff locked us in and refused to let us out!! In brief Odessa ruined our stomachs, wallets and evening. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.More

As we were a large group we asked the waiter to just bring an assorti of things to the table. Ended up with a bill of more than 2000 UAH per person, when main courses cost a couple of hundred. A reputable restaurant should be...able to handle such a trust from the guests, these guys just took advantage instead. On top of it all, 5 of 20 people in our group got stomach problems, spent rest of the evening in the bathroom. Probably it was one of the fish dishes as those who didnt eat fish were fine.More
