The service here was fantastic. I was visiting Ukraine from Canada and heard of this great restaurant. I definitely recommend the french style meat. The BBQ menu is so far the best I have experienced not only in Ukraine but in the world! Will come again soon!

Well located between the Hilton and the famous 11 Mirrors this pastry welcomes the high society of Kiev... so it cannot be cheap! however with the actual exchange rate it is (1 EUR = 30 UAH). Barroco design which can be seen only in his part of the world. good Pastry and food with French touch.

Disappointed with food that was "super salted ". They add so much salt to eggs in kitchen you will get hypertension. The service is snail slow. The out door seating is on a desolate street with boring street life. They will have an empty restaurant and tell you some tables are reserved for people ordering food, and the inferior tables...

Things happen for a reason. It was nearly 9:45pm, and we were heading to a local restaurant close to the Hilton Hotel, that it turns out was closing in 15 minutes. We continued down the street and 'discovered' the charming 'Surprise' (сюрприз) restaurant, and being a warm summer evening, sat outside for a late dinner. We were offered Kir for... More

Pricey, even for Kiev. But their club sandwich is the best in Eastern Europe. Coffee is also one of the best in the city. Enjoy the outside patio during warm seasons, nice quiet leafy street.

The atmosphere is very nice, and the Patisserie has a good variety, although my first three dessert choices were unavailable at the time. It also offers a decent variety of dishes, with an English menu. I would definitely recommend this place for a good meal and even more for the desserts. They even have french macaroons! Prices are a bit... More

Visited as a recommendation, as it was said to be restaurant that would give a nice impression for our guests. Was pleasantly surprised that business people are more than welcome and that there is a bar menu where you can select a small snack and some coffee for a reasonable price. Only wish the WiFi connection was a bit stronger.... More

Had a very nice dinner with my family with the combination of aromatic tea, very delicious dishes and followed by amazing pastries; we got to enjoy all of it on the summer terrace which resembled a lucious garden! Definately would recommend it to my friends and collegues.
