This little restaurant is located on Krasnarmiski, very close to Kreshatyk street. There is a small dining area on the main floor and a large, more charming cellar below.
The prices are quite reasonable and the service is good. I particularly recommend their steaks, but they also make a great Caesar Salad and decent pasta.
A really good date restaurant and someplace that is often new for even Kyivites.

We went there because of the good reviews, and well, they are good for a reason.
Excellent italian (and a bit french) food with good yet unintrusive service. Its smaller as expected from the pictures, but that gives it a nice cosy atmosphere, perfect for couples.

We had salad and carpaccio to start, both excellent. Unfortunately the dishes from the extra menu were not available, but the "standard" Bistecca, flambéed at the table, accompanied by a good bottle of (reasonably priced!) Pinot Noir made more than up for it. I really need to stress that the cooking and quality of the meat was excellent, praise to the chef! Same goes for dessert (tiramisu and pannacotta), fresh and tasty.

The only complaint would be that we saw the nice dishes on the extra menu but were told that they were not available at the time. I hope we have better luck next time. Definitely worth a recommendation and also not overpriced.

Nice, cozy place. Good restaurant for a quiet dinner with sofisticated food. My husband and I chose this place for a romantic dinner and it definitely served the purpose. We both found food a little bit like an "emperors new clothes". Im rating dining places based on what was offered for the price? and such a criterias as: food, service, atmosphere, location, decor. I will definitely recommend this place, but be aware if you are not a fan of a fine, sophisticated dining.
