This was one of the two restaurants we visited in Ukraine. I would never have expected to get such great food in this place. Everything was absolutely delicious. It was four of us, everybody ordered something different - and everything was extraordinarily delicious. Staff was super friendly as well.

Well this place was really disappointing, because at first it looked really nice and promising. Then we realized that the waitress does not really speak English, which made some confusing in the orders, and then the food was also really disappointing.

Bit touristy but great fun. Had to sit at the bar on a stool shaped like a horse as I was on my own. My waitress was dressed in a revealing nurses outfit, which sort of sums up the place. However, the service was excellent and the food really good.

The restaurant is rather focused on the tourist. I was surprised by the decorative items:)) The staff is helpful. The food is delicious, but for some reason I expected more.

very good restaurant with good local food and service in the city center, but the second time I visited, my wallet with 300 euros in local money made wings inside the restaurant, none of the staff did not care to look or invite police also most restaurants there are cameras, of course I would not want to call the police...

Visited this restaurant already twice and every time enjoyed it. Real Ukrainian atmosphere and food. Restaurant is divided in several areas (with live music, without live music, with table clothes and without). Big menu, with all possible dishes, draft beer and wine. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

Thank Dusya0982

Pervak offers a wide range of traditional Ukrainian drinks and food which you can enjoy in either the big hall, or one of the small rooms decorated in Ukrainian style. Take a trip back in time to early 20th century Kyiv in one of restaurants in Kiev with great folk decor. The decor includes the showing of silent movies, and the restaurant itself is on the site of a famous merchant's house. A friendly staff in costumes serves up a variety of hearty Ukrainian dishes with inventive names, many interesting details wait for you here in one of the best Ukrainian restaurants.
