Stopped by after spending a half day at the magnificent, the world heritage St. Sophia church. Read borscht is good, so I tried it with another traditional Ukrainian dish, a meat-stuffed cabbage. Both are good!

Set in a very modern style with a cool style-not a restaurant to be forgotten! The decor is of revolution (I think), and the far-from-mainstream menu also reflects this. Ukrainian classics such as Ukrainian red beet Borsch, and of course chicken Kiev can be found...More

The concierge of our hotel (Intercontinental) recommended this restaurant and we were pleased he did. The food was nice and very fresh. My colleagues had fish (salmon and makrel) and it contained quite a bit of small fish bones in it, but otherwise it was...More

Food is really nice and very modern. Prices are very reasonable (perhaps due to the exchange rate) but nonetheless was very good value for money. Service is also very good. Cocktails were also lovely.

The menu is very creative, which sometimes pays off. Each item is offered two ways- traditional, and in a new form. The salo isdecent, though nothing exciting. Their traditional Chicken Kiev is delicious, and their new version, as meatballs in a spaghetti sauce is just...More

This place is so weird. It's located in a basement, looks like a dungeon from the outside. Decor is super old school UA. Dishes seemed pretty local to me and it was difficult to find something I knew, or how to pronounce. I ended up...More

I'm an Eastern European, so food selection was not something I found completely new here. Quality was very good though. I really liked that they had choices both for old and new cuisine. Basically, everyone would have at least some choice. Meniu was clear, but...More

Yes, Spotykach really be proud! With such care together under one cover the most famous culinary hits of the Soviet era have not for everyone. Here is what restaurant critics over the years will be called "Ukrainian cuisine of the Soviet period," and the mere process of reading the menu is wild appetite. Salad leaves traditional herring under a fur coat, Olivier, Mimosa Capital, salad with beans and a dozen names. Then begins an even more pleasant discoveries. Take, for example, herring with anchovies on potatoes with onions or perch with mushrooms, fried pancakes. Sated fangled delights metropolitan restaurants audience inevitably return to the simple joys that are certain to become trump card Spotykach.
