I was taken here by colleagues and had no idea what to expect. The restaurant is full of different themed corners decorated like houses in the Ukrainian countryside. We dined on the terrace of the beekeeper's cottage surrounded by trees in blossom and bee hives. The food was excellent, traditional Ukrainian dishes washed down with local fruit wines and herbal...

Eclectic countrystyle interior, average kitchen and average service. Some people might like this style restaurants, I am personally don't ( even I like country style kitchen ). I wish they would pay more attention to cuisine. Paid appr. 680 UAH for 2 persons dinner without alcohol.

If you love Ukrainian authentic food- that's one of the best places in Kiev to visit. Unbelievable interior, high level of service and so tasty food will make your day. I strongly recommend to try salo ( pork fat), blood sausage, barbeque from veal and lamb. We drunk some khrenovuxa ( vodka with horse radish)- good enough and strong appropriately.... More

In the centre of Kiev you feel like to be in an Ukrainian village. May be a little bit overloaded but really nice. The staff, dressed in the national dresses, very kind and professional. The food was good and nicely served. It is worth a visit

Absolutely Amazing, the service was faultless, in traditional dress created a great atmosphere. Delicious authentic cuisine created a surreal experience, couldn't get enough. And the traditional shot upon leaving certainly warmed us up. Highly recommended, you will love it.

The restaurant itself looks very nice and food is very tasty. But for such prices you expect more. The service was horrible. Nobody comes to the table for long time. Very unfriendly personal. I would not recommend this place if you don't want to destroy your mood🙌🏻

This has to be the most fantastic restaurant for Ukrainian food anywhere. Everything was just perfect and the soups, kapustnyak in particular, and local dishes were extremely tasty. This restaurant is a must visit in kiev. It is one of the best I have been to around the world and is world class. In addition, we have been in Kiev... More

I went there with my girlfriend (who is Ukrainian) and have been really surprised by this place. First of all, it is decorated with typical Ukrainian style (according to girlfriend) inside and we can really see how much effort they did put in it. The food is great, really delicious, even though it is a bit expenssive, it remains very... More
