Just had an amazing duck breast dish, and sea buckthorn tea! Violin and piano playing Gershwin, and other American songs. The weather is dark, cold, and gloomy outside, but it is so pleasant and cozy inside.

Extensive menu, well prepared and presented dishes, very good wine list, service is well up to western standards. Not your typical Ukrainian eatery.

The exterior states it's an "English Pub", but once inside, aside from the bar it looked like pretty much any other eastern european cafe/restaurant. The menu was quite extensive, suspiciously so in fact - given that it's a small restaurant they're... More
