A perfect restaurant to someone who likes straight-forward local cuisine, especially dumblings, cozy atmosphere, clean and stylish interior and friendly service. Just a short distance from the main railway station.

It is a really nice place, well-priced, with a good vibe. It is situated close to the railway station, so it could be a good choice for you to spend a couple of hours before the train. Another option would be to work here during the day or simply come for lunch. The cuisine is delicious, I liked everything I... More

A good restaurant serving European cuisine. The restaurant is situated not far from the station. Inside, everything is decorated in the style of a loft or Barbie. There are delicious dishes of meat on the grill. The most delicious dish is the lamb. The average check per person $ 15.. This restaurant is like a family-friendly and loving couples.

We made the walk from Maidan Square just to come here and it was well worth the long walk!!! We had borscht, potato pancakes, and pirogies. Some of the best pirogies I've had! The staff was incredibly friendly too! Do not pass this up when in Kiev!

Frankly speaking I visited this place suddenly - my friends invite me there after visiting one artist event. I do not expect something special but I must admit that I was wrong. Nice place with good and fair service and price. Practically no complaints except Ukrainian dumplings with meat. It could be better but cake "Napoleon" is GREAT! Selection of... More

They can even make an entire kilogram of frozen vareniki of your choice for you to take away! For those who don't know what vareniki are - kinda dumplings but... More
