Description: The legendary restaurant in Kiev changes the rules and amazes again! The new menu, new interior, new format. Under the same roof, at Lipki, the heart of the capital, Lipsky combined the classic and modern. The art of modern gastronomy and take away author’s desserts, creative space and traditional luxury of banquets, wine tastings and dj-sets, an exquisite restaurant and a stylish city cafe. People make selfie there and enter into contracts during lunch, have breakfast with their parents and dinner with a noisy group of friends. Lipsky is always open. It is open to everything new and surprising. In common with native Kiev, it is old, familiar, cozy, but always trendy.

The food is stellar. Unique, delicious and interesting. I had caviar (fabulous), a dish with slightly pickled cucumbers with mashed garlic, lemon, salt and dill spears in a bowl. Believe me when I say to you, this was easily one of the best things I've eaten this year. For dessert I asked the waiter for something simple. He brought back a tiny cup of chocolate. He said it was pudding. It was more like a hot chocolate made with espresso and cream and dark dark chocolate. This simple "pudding" was so delicious and elegant in it's simplicity. I kind of couldn't believe how lucky I was with every bite.

The place feels like an old mansion inside- but the food is quite contemporary- even the traditional plates like the pancakes and onions (which is delicious) are done is a chic way. It is a bit pricey- but then you are getting live music (a subtle, moody jazz duo played the night we dined there) and very attentive service.

Superb menu, comfortable setting, would highly recommend to anyone who's looking to experience Ukrainian cuisine for the first time (or just wanting the best from familiar tastes!)

This restaurant might be overpriced as mentioned before, and not my favorite place, i still think that in term of taste, this is the best place i've been in Kiev. Definitively give it a try if you only care about quality and not so much about price.

Very authentic best for dinner although we went for lunch. The design is really nice, waiters dressed in an authentic way. Ukrainian food was different we asked for the recommendation starts were very different jelly with minced beef (was ok) pancake with beef (was very good) then the main course lamp shank was great i don't remember what my dad had but he loved it. Overall a MUST visit while in Ukraine the only place where you should try Ukrainian food
