“Restaurant with live Cows and Chickens - a bit flashy, but lots of fat wallets present”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

this is a bit of a funny place, with the cow and chickens behind a glass wall, it feels like eating in a zoo restaurant, on the other hand, its pretty unique.
Food was good but overly expensive, and I am from London and know what expensive means!

We had a good time, but the folks around, who seem to spent 6h in the place, all working their ipads and ipods and Galaxys3, not talking but ordering stuff and not eating, with typical arrogance, they are the typical Moscowice folks, bored to death in a town where you canget anything, but personal freedom is limited.

“Ukrainian - yes, typical - no”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This place was on the other side of the street from the hotel and obvious place to have dinner. Went there with the expectation of good and simple Ukrainian food. What we found was a high-end restaurant with great service, great interior and GREAT prices for the dishes based on the Ukrainian food, but not in the typical format. At the same time it tasted good and we had a great time.

“Great interior, average food”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The interior is great, with a "live" garden. However, the food was overpriced by the quality and tasted average. I've had better Ukranian food in other places.

Reviewed November 30, 2012

One of my fovorite place in Moscow although the bill can make you caught.
Atmosphere, with the farm in the middle of the restaurant, is ... different. Good Ukrainian food.
