The menu selection was poor, food was average or below average, prices higher than similar places. Mostly a fast foid type of place rather than a nice warm local meal. Location on the main avenue.

Had dinner at SVOI today. Service is very polite and attentive, but the food itself is nothing to brag about. We had chicken borstch, chicken skewers and minced chicken steak with mashed potatoes. It was pretty average and tasteless. It's quite clear that the restaurant...More

We enjoyed our meal here, with 2 beef soups, a cold beet soup, and pork loin in mustard sauce. Service was fine and food came reasonably fast. Gives you at least some concept of the range of national dishes.

NIce restaurant with sittings on street as well. Nice choice of draft beer and native food. Good service but the Draniki (local food) we ordered had slight bad taste. Service is good and fast. Recommend White Aliwaria beer and local alcoholic drink Krambambulya.
