A friend suggested me visit this place and what a great suggestion it turned out to be! Trendy place with nice atmosphere and vibe, super friendly staff and the food is fabulous. Came in for brunch twice and tried different things, everything was delicious! A...bit overpriced in my opinion but everything I tried was great. Highly recommend this place!More

We always visit this restaurant when on business in Ukraine. The service is one of the best we’ve seen in the world. The servers are sincerely nice and thoughtful. The food is an absolute explosion of tastes. It’s definitely a place where memories are created.

A little overpriced. We loved the decor and in general the service was good. But food wasn’t the best. Strange flavors combinations, spices, sour&sweet which just don’t play well and is totally unnecessary. Why complicating what was already simple and good with some mid-eastern spices?...Anyways, we had quinoa salad and asked for some added shrimp. Payed 5 euros for literally 3 shrimp. Kind of too much. Okroshka wasn’t good, again because of some kind of a weird spice in it. We ate it just because very hungry. Prices for coffee are also exaggerated for Kiev. A cappuccino in San Marco square in Venice will cost you less.More

I'd skip the long story about how I adore this place, their service, and the food they serve for guests... The situation that filled my heart with love entirely happened when I was trying to find some diet food to treat my friend in a...hospital who just recently had surgery. I asked a waiter if they have something in a menu that I'm not aware of, like baked apples or anything similar... Despite a tense amount of guests at that moment, he run away directly to the kitchen and after several minutes I was already talking with the administrator. She kindly asked me if I can wait for half an hour, so chiefs will be less loaded with orders... Of course, I did wait, meanwhile, having a great lunch as usual... I wasn't able to express my feelings when realized that they aren't even going to charge me for this exclusive dish that was created specifically for me and packed nicely, so I can deliver it for my buddy... This was truly amazing! And the most heartful restaurant act that I have ever seen in my life! 😊 You're great people who work in the best place! Not a coincidence 😉 ❤️❤️❤️More

We called in on the off chance that we could get a table, after a day trip to Chernobyl . We were really lucky to get a table and were treated to a lovely meal. The starters were delicious, then we were given a free...bourekas as we were first time visitors, it was gorgeous, light, crispy with a delicious filling. The mains we had were veal cheeks and a vegan mushroom Raman. So much flavour in both dishes. If the restaurant was near home, we would be regulars!
