Now this is a place where you know that someone put a great deal of thinking in the menu. I always go and try local food in places I visit and this place was a good try. They fusionised the local dishes and the outcome was pretty good. Fun menu and fun food. Recommended.

The food is tasty. The prices are moderate. It has unique modern Ukrainian style. The food is a mixture of classic and modern. All is very good. My favorite place in the city-center.

Great place! We came back here after 1.5 years with our US friend because she loved it then and wanted to visit this place again during her stay in Kiev. I like everything here, starting with warm welcome, unusual menu and cozy sofas. They serve typical Ukrainian cusine, but add some extraordinary ideas that make it quite unusual. The quality...

They put such an interesting spin on all the food and cook it to such perfection that it really was the best food I have ever had. The drinks are also unusual and delicious. They have two areas; one is a... More

Modern, inventive, and playful - bordering on the tasteful kitsch (oxymoron intended), Spotykash is a very tongue-in-cheek play on Ukrainian/Soviet history. The food is elegantly prepared, incredibly flavorful, braiding traditional offerings with a modern (bordering on the molecular) twist. Take for instance the "Borscht popsicle" (photo attached). For many, the notion of borscht alone invokes childhood memories of being forced... More

We were very pleasantly surprised. The menu was great choice and with nice surprises mixing tradition, contemporary thinking and humor. Great taste, great service. And Very chip considering uah exchange rate. The restaurant's interior is very interesting too - as a summary of Ukraine history/ spirit/famous people. Location is very central and close to traditional places of interest. Thus very... More

Description
Yes, Spotykach really be proud! With such care together under one cover the most famous culinary hits of the Soviet era have not for everyone. Here is what restaurant critics over the years will be called "Ukrainian cuisine of the Soviet period," and the mere process of reading the menu is wild appetite. Salad leaves traditional herring under a fur coat, Olivier, Mimosa Capital, salad with beans and a dozen names. Then begins an even more pleasant discoveries. Take, for example, herring with anchovies on potatoes with onions or perch with mushrooms, fried pancakes. Sated fangled delights metropolitan restaurants audience inevitably return to the simple joys that are certain to become trump card Spotykach.
