Great place to eat or as I did just drink coffee - excellent location with great views and cover if the weather wasn't as brilliant as I found during my visit.

Pantagruel is a terrific restaurant with a large and varied menu of European (Italian) cuisine. I dined there several times and each time the service was great with multilingual staff who were able to serve you in English, Ukrainian and more. The red dry wine...More

If it's your first restoran in Ukraine, you could be impressed. But believe me, you can find better food and much better price. There you just pay for Golden Gate and Cat's statue view. What was strange for me that when you come inside, all...More
