This restaurant not only looks interesting outside and inside, but also has good service and great food. Try the traditional courses with horseradish vodka.

Lovely restaurant with eastern European interior. Waitresses dressed in local dresses. The borsch (soup) was exquisite and so was the meat (main course). Live music played by a two men band. Excellent experience.

Pervak, one of the best folk Ukrainian restaurants in Kiev, and is located in the heart of the capital. It serves a wonderful range of freshly cooked dishes of Ukrainian cuisine. Pervak offers a wide range of traditional Ukrainian drinks and food which you can enjoy in either the big hall, or one of the small rooms decorated in Ukrainian style. Take a trip back in time to early 20th century Kyiv in one of restaurants in Kiev with great folk decor. The decor includes the showing of silent movies, and the restaurant itself is on the site of a famous merchant's house. A friendly staff in costumes serves up a variety of hearty Ukrainian dishes with inventive names, many interesting details wait for you here in one of the best Ukrainian restaurants. Pervak has succeeded in creating the perfect restaurant for tourists and locals alike, yet has not sacrificed its Ukrainian identity. The exterior of the building is splendid, and behind the door beckons a restaurant full of surprises, smiling faces and tasty dishes. It consists of seven distinct dining areas decorated in its own unique style. The Pervak restaurant has been tastefully designed to give you the feeling of old Kiev from a bygone era. It is quirky and fun, full of interesting ornaments, pictures and curiosities. And if you need any further distraction then the attractive waitresses dressed in frilly low cut folk costumes may well get you reaching for that extra shot of vodka. The menu is always refreshed and gladdens with its newcomers, you will feel the rich variety of tastes in one of the best restaurants in Kiev. We dearly preserve the best traditions of the Ukrainian hospitality and create a unique atmosphere of comfort and friendliness to be enjoyed by each of our visitors. Ukrainian restaurant "Pervak" is ideal for business meals with spaces available for private hire or with friends and family. We are proud to invite you to Pervak, to one of the eldest restaurants in Kiev.
