“OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE...WORST EVER by far”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I was concerned about this place because I had a really bad experience at Belvedere in Kiev and this place similar. Service was OK at best....three people...NO APPS, NO DRINKS< NO DESSERT...ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! We ordered a seafood platter with ONE three ounce lobster tail, THREE large shrimp and some [--] squid and calamari and it was over NINE HUNDRED DOLLARS, RIP OFF

NOT TO MENTION THE FOOD WAS COLD

“Excellent view”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very nice atmosphere, good food and excellent panoramic view across hills. Worth of testing at least in summer time when big glass wall gives the evening sun to light the restaurant.

“Fantastic view, but overpriced”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

The view from the balcony is great, but only if you get one of the good tables.

The atmosphere can be great in the evenings, when you're eating while a band is playing live music.

Regarding the food, I tend to agree with other reviews. It's quite expensive, even for a high end restaurant like this. The quality of the food is good, but not better than many other places in Kiev. Another thing is the wine, which is highly overpriced. I would never choose a bottle of wine here, knowing it's double the price as in many European countries.

I've been here 2 times, but Kiev is too big a city with too many restaurants to keep returning to this restaurant. However, if you are looking for a restaurant with an amazing view for a special romantic occasion (and if money is no object), this is the place.
