The food tastes nothing French to me. Steak tartare too acid, I could barely eat it. Salad (with truffle oil) of average taste and very expensive. Sausages of low quality. Perhaps, you will think it's French quality if you've never been out of Ukraine.

It was 24th December. It was late and we didn't have Ice cream for the desert. All shops around were closed. So we had the idea to go this restaurant to pick some ice cream. We went in! The waitress was nice, there were no other clients. There were only three ice cream flavors, Chocolate, Vanilla and Salted Butter Caramel.... More

I go to this restaurant very often as it is very close to where I live. The ambiance is very good, lots of dishes in the menu, good quality and, from a foreigner perspective, very good value for money. The service used to be a weak spot, it used to be very long and waiters used to forget about you.... More

Cafe Charlotte is a lovely restaurant I just found out about. Good thematic decor. The menu is extensive, I wanted one of everything. One of their specialties is mussels, which come in large buckets with another bucket for empty shells. Five different sauces to choose from, all are good. I also had chicken liver pate, the first time I've ever... More

I couldn't have asked for a better experience there. Cafe Charlotte was excellent! I loved their Schnitzel! It was perfect!

Not the worst and not the best. Pros are good cuisine (local variant of chili con carne is highly recommended), moderate prices, space. Cons - inattentive poor trained personnel and poor bar. Terrible Mojito was made with Captain Morgan Spiced rum just because there is no other rum available! Disgusting. However, if you know their weak sides, you may visit... More

Met up here for dinner with some friends for a total party of 8. This was the third time I'd been there. The place is stylish, if a bit cold given the large windows. The food is good, but the service is indifferent bordering on bad. Our dinner took 2 1/2 hours because half our party's food took forever to... More

I enjoyed a late lunch at this Cafe with a lot of French atmosphere. The interior design gives a certain feeling of freshness. The soups were very good and the main courses as well though the sausages from Toulouse were a bit on the fat side for me. A friend of mine had the steak tartar and it was simply... More
