Came for a special dinner with my mother. Staff were half-dead, forgetting to place the order for the kitchen for twenty minutes at a time. Even for a wine glass refill. Food didn't arrive for an hour. The so-called 20-dollar bouillabaisse was much closer to...More

This place has a nice terrace where to have breakfast or brunch, which was our case. The food was scrumptious and the service excellent. Very pleasant place that I would love to visit again and recommend to anyone.

It is not so big restaurant located in the centre of Kiev. There was some live music. Food was average and portions were extremely small. For those expensive prices it should be much better. There were not even napkins on the table.More
