Food was nice, but I can't say that it was something really special, I can't even say that it was a real French dinner (as they say).

My wife and I chose this cafe to have an anniversary dinner. We used the navigation app to locate the cafe and it showed us the route through the Bankova street that was closed for walking at 7 PM. So we had to return and went to the Institutskaya street to get the cafe. "Gorchitsa" is located near the "Korona"... More

We've been to Gorchitsa several times since it opened over 16 years ago. We enjoyed it every single time. Every single dish. We also think it's a good value for money for the high standard if food you are getting

The restaurant was highly reccomended to us, we found the place very beautifully decorated and a pleasure to sit in. We had a nice choice of food which was delicious , we thoroughly enjoyed the meal and surroundings though unfortunately the staff could not raise half a smile between them, maybe we came at a bad moment.

I visited the Gorchitsa Cafe for dinner, and was very happy to experience their excellent kitchen. The restaurant has around 15 tables inside, and during the summer quite a few outdoors also. The style is classic chic. The staff was very friendly and serviceminded, and offered good help in selecting items from the menu, and suggesting good food and wine... More

One of my favorite places in central Kiev. We always go there for duck confit leg with mashed potatoes, freshly baked bread with butter, creme brûlée and a bottle of good wine. It never failed in quality and service. Personnel is exceptionally attentive and friendly. Restaurant is very small and cosy- only 8-9 tables, big windows, high ceilings and nice... More

Excellent, tasty and classy food, very good choice of french wine! Very kind, helpful staff! Tuna tartar and all desserts are my favorite! Very friendly, cosy and warm atmosphere of the restaurant! I would recommend to come here not only for the romantic dinner but try the lunch menu as well! Sure you'll love it, too!
