Great kitsch, inside and out--topped off by a full size plastic oak tree inside the restaurant. Packed with locals whenever I have been there. And why not, with such a great choice of Ukrainian food at very good prices?

The best place to try Ukrainian dishes for the first time...and for the second, and third.. They taste just the way they should. It's not cheap, but it worth it. I especially enjoy the assortment of Odessa special dishes.

Lovely restaurant right in the centre of Odessa. Very good helpings of great Ukrainian food, served by waiters and waitresses in national costume. Also great atmosphere and traditional decor. Good prices. Would definitely recommend. If I return to Odessa, and I would love to, Kumanets will definitely be getting anoter visit from me.

All well prepared and well done, in traditional... More

We arrived there by chance, but we were lucky to find a spare table in this very beautiful traditional restaurant where food is diverse, people are smiling and welcoming you. It is better to make a reservation. Try eating traditional dishes. Give them the chance to surprise you.
