“I was surprised!!!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Being a frequent visitor to Kiev for business, I have know the restaurant scene pretty well. I was surprised to find a new place of such high quality. The interior was very cozy and the terrace was nice. Friendly and knowledgable (despite the language barrier) staff helped us with food choices. We had pork ribs in tomato-mustard sauce and some fish from Odessa (it was called something like "barabulka"). And in the end I think the prices for Kiev were very decent. Would definitely come back next time I am in Kiev.
