Every time I visit Kiev this is a must place to go. They have a nice beer selection. The food is very good and they like to serve large plates.The location is just a block from the center of town.

I have been going there since 2002 and never been disapointed. I especially recommend to go there on Friday evening to feel its cosy atmosphere and enjoy live music. Waiters and barmens are quite professional and speak English. Expats should like it.

We arrived quite late on a Tuesday evening and perhaps predictably, the place was not hopping...very quiet with perhaps no more than a dozen customers. Still a warm welcoming kind of place with very friendly, smiling staff. Passed the acid test of Guinness pint pouring with flying colours and we got pints that would be acceptable in Inchicore...top marks. We... More

Having Irish ancestry, I can appreciate a great Irish pub. When I planned a trip to Ukraine, I found O'Brien's in Kiev and made a point to go there. We first went on a Saturday night. I made a reservation for a table near the band that was performing (thanks Igor!!!). Everything was perfect. The food was delicious, the table... More

Perfect place for friends meetings. Good choice of beer and food, in particular, meat dishes and salads, friendly atmosphere. Stuff is helpful and speaks good English. Might have to book a table, especially when live music is played.

This bar stands out in Kiev as the hang out for expats. I've seen several posts on here that said that the staff are rude and don't speak English. This is far from the truth! Obriens staff speak English very well and are very welcoming of foreigners! I lived in Kiev for nearly a year and spent almost night there,... More

I would say that this place is exactly what to expect from a foreign-based Irish Pub. Had the Irish feel to it, but not a ton of Irish food. That being said, I goto pubs for burgers anyways so that is what I ordered. Outstanding American-style burger, definitely above average for Europe. The staff were nice and spoke pretty good... More

It started well, the decor is what you would expect of an Irish pub so it was a big let down when our food arrived, I took my girlfriend to the pub that bears my name hoping she would taste some Irish food, the only dishes on the menu that you would expect in an Irish pub were Shepherds Pie...

We ate a couple of times here. The food is good. The food, especially the soup, is delightful for warming up after being out in the cold. It's always fun to watch sport games in the pub. Service is a bit slow. Each time we went to eat here there were not many people in the pub. It took awhile... More
