I have visited this restaurant quite a number of times in the past 2 months. This place is situated in the city centre, near St Andrew's cathedral. It's in the basement part of an old building, with the wooden decorations at the entrance. The wooden interior of the lower ground floor is very pleasant and makes you feel relaxed. Above ground floor is for a large groups of people, and has a different interior. Service is excellent, waiting staff speak Ukrainian, Russian and English. Their uniform is ethnic style, which adds to the pleasant ambience of the place and completes the feeling of being in a special place. Prices are quite acceptable. Food served is organic, very fresh and very well prepared. I enjoyed every dish I tried. Coffees and cakes are very nice as well. There're some Ukrainian souvenirs and a small library/book shop with a very wide variety of Ukrainian books for sale. Patrons are also welcome to sit in the library with their coffee and read any of the books there. The place also organise very music and literature evenings, as well as craft workshops. I would recommend this place for a quiet dinner, coffee or a catch up with friends. Excellent!

Finding some places in Kiev makes me feel happy and proud for our people. One of such places became a restaurant of old Kiev cuisine “Kult Ra”. This place has really special atmosphere where you can get one of the brightest authentic experiences from visiting Kiev. This place reflects traditions of local people in times before Christianity was settled here – means before X century. Pottery in Trypilian culture style, wish ribbons under Perun’s statue, old Russian honey drink, rich choice of dishes with unbelievable names, authentic live music, own library, even clay master-classes on Saturdays – every detail here serves to bring you back for several hundred years to the beginnings of Ukrainian civilization. I like this place because it has a soul. The food itself probably was just normal, but how it was organized and served – that created the delighted experience for me.

Very nice little tea shop and restaurant. You walk down the stairs into a coffee shop looking like restaurant with old traditional setting. The have a nice touch with special wooden tables, the menu card looks unique too and so do the dresses of the servers. I really enjoyed the Ukranian food and soup. I would definitely recommend.
