Of course, this is one of the best restaurants in Kiev with Italian food. Everything is delicious. However, it is overpriced. You need to pay 20 euro per salad and they do not have a wine with a price less than 20 euro per glass!

We had an enjoyable meal with business colleagues, delicious salmon but the salad was uninspired. Service was fine, perfunctory. But, heck, this is Kyiv. Keep the expectations reasonable and you will be a happy comrade.

Very nice view, good food but too expensive for what you get. Somewhat cold atmosphere, the staff could do with a bit more smiling.

We've stayed at the City Hotel 4 times in different seasons of the year and Matisse is hands down the best in Kiev.. We've had breakfast, lunch and dinner 50 plus times and never once have had a bad meal. I guess that says a lot in itself. Its a little expensive but you are paying for top quality and... More

The restaurant is located on the 15 th floor and the view all around Kiev is amazing. There are no walls, only huge windows and that is the point. Food was average. Not bad but nothing to talk about really. My bad was not to check the price of the wine and I took 2 glasses of wine 400 UAH... More
