I visited a lot of restaurants during my stay in Kiev but I must admit Lipsky Osobnyak is the best I had the pleasure to enjoy. Definitely try the Trout and Rabbit Stew with white wine (I was a skeptic at first but trust me, try it!). The service was great and attentive. Very professional. The restaurant is grand but...

There's a huge gap between what you pay for and what you get. full stop. Quite frankly, 30 Euros for a flute of champagne is fine if you are at the Billionaire in Porto Cervo, but if you are in Kiev... and the rack of lamb I got was not simply overcooked, it was excessively overcook, nearly uneatable. Don't go... More

I went with a friend on the basis of recommendations below and was not disappointed: Food very good, a very extensive wine list (but I opted for a cheaper Georgian wine), service absolutely impeccable and with flair (the best I have ever received), and the period decor of a century ago charming, with nice seating in the balcony. And like... More

Went with a large party on a Sunday night. There was hardly anyone else in the restaurant. The atmosphere is superb; a beautiful room; beautifully presented table and immaculate service. The English -speaking staff were able to fully explain the dishes and offer sound advice for those not familiar with Russian/Ukrainian food. A definite plus. All the food was excellent.... More

Love this property! Me and my husband are loyal repeated guests in this place and enjoy the atmosphere a lot. We are living in Germany and can judge the service as top superior. Tastefully done interior with excellent waitstaff that were very attentive and friendly. I have found myself completely addicted to the dessert – drunk pear. I honestly believe... More

My dining experience at Lipsky Osobnyak in April 2012 was restaurant perfection. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. I opted for Ukrainian meat dumplings with a cheese crust and rabbit stew for my main. This was coupled with a lovely Georgian red wine recommended by the waiter. Highly recommend!

Thank NMPCC100

The legendary restaurant in Kiev changes the rules and amazes again! The new menu, new interior, new format. Under the same roof, at Lipki, the heart of the capital, Lipsky combined the classic and modern. The art of modern gastronomy and take away author's desserts, creative space and traditional luxury of banquets, wine tastings and dj-sets, an exquisite restaurant and a stylish city cafe. People make selfie there and enter into contracts during lunch, have breakfast with their parents and dinner with a noisy group of friends. Lipsky is always open. It is open to everything new and surprising. In common with native Kiev, it is old, familiar, cozy, but always trendy.
