This restaurant has great outdoor seating. The food and service is very good. It's pricey compared to other restaurants in Kiev but still very reasonably priced. We were there at 7 for dinner but the place was empty. It started getting busy at around 9 o'clock.

The operas are of the highest standard and the best seats in the house can be bought for about ten English pounds. The standard of opera and ballet was at least as good as Vienna which I have visited previously. I did not have a smart suit with me but that seemed to be no problem. Perhaps best not to... More

It's a beautiful place. Lots of people were everywhere. The culture of Ukrainian people is so welcoming and unique. I was fascinated by the way of living. The city was surprisingly very international and it was easy to get around without knowing Ukrainian or Russian language

We visited the Opera restaurant for a pre theatre meal, so we were quite short on time. I would have loved to stay here longer to enjoy the ambience, and lively surroundings. We were a party of 3 and all chose different dishes which were all excellent particularly the foie gras. The service was good, the waiter had good English... More

Delicious food, great location. The first evening the service was quick, but the second evening it took a long time before we got our food. However, on average, the waiters are friendly, helpful and polite. Not many of them speak good English though.

The interior of the restaurant and the food was very nice, but the staff lacked basic knowledge about the wines. I asked about the Ukrainian wines and the waitress told me that one of them was a rose wine, it was not. It was a very sweet dessert wine served in a red wine glass.

I was there in January. The place is really really nice and cozy, the food is delicious (especially a tuna!) and there's is also a nice bar at the ground floor where you can have a drink or enjoy karaoke during the evening / night. Definitely the place to be!

The theater is worth seeing and the performance was excellent. We had great seats on the 4th row--a very good value for the money. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but doable. Recommend waiting for 10 min. after the end of the performance to leave--it's a mob scene as people retrieve their coats from the coat check and exit... More

When we were going to Ukraine for vacation we wanted to try all the traditional food Ukraine has to offer. We went to several places and I think Opera was the best one. The food is great, nice personnel, warm atmosphere. If you want to enjoy Ukrainian food in the nice place I think you should go to Opera. We... More
