I visited this place a few times (with friends and with wife) and place suits for most of the occasions when you want relaxed dinning. Restaurant is in Podol region of Kiev (a bit off central part of the city), in a relatively quiet street and with no parking problems. From outside, building is simple, but well maintained and only with a few discreet colorful details on the entrance. Inside, you are approached by kind hostesses, which are taking care of your coats and are directing you to your table (usually, it is wise to book). Inside, colours and visualisation is flavoured with Georgian folklor motives, but with a taste (it doesn't popps out your eyeballs) and interior is dominated by wooden elements. Besides regular tables there is a couple of separated zones for bigger crews. Menu is accented with Georgian food choices (which is great for anyone who likes middle-eastern flavors and style of cooking), meaning with just a bit spicier food (and there are plenty "homemade" sauces to accompany your meats - so, for red-hot food lovers, also a good spot). Meats and fishes are pepared just as they should be and just in time. Starters are very tasty and if you are vodka-person, they have finely chilled salo (pork lard), salty marinated herring and marinated veggies (this is ukrainian/russian element in the offer). And not to forget - really good hatchapury (variant of cheese-bread which is served hot and you cannot get enough of that treat). Beers are well chilled (both from kegs or bottled). Wine menu is wide but if you focus on Georgian food (menu is elaborated also for European taste), then it is natural to drink wines from the same geografy - and they are seriously good and usually not overpriced as Italian or French. Semi-sweet or dry. For parties who are spending long hours there, wooden chairs could be equipped with some cushioning, but it's not a minus. I never reached a point of ordering a dessert, so I have additional drive to go there again - everything else is so nice and fresh that all niches in belly are stuffed.
Music is loud enough for not to be distracted by neighbouring guests. Place is clean, whole set-up is working easy. Almost proffesional service (thee are very few places in Kiev where you could experience masterful waiters) and manager obviously counts on guest's sympathies for the girls working arround the tables. However, no big deal. Total recomendation.
If you are regular or your bill is heavy at the end, you will be offered with member discount card, on your way out.
