Very nice foie gras with peach and Duck with pears. Excellent taste. If you are into European French food; go here. You'll not be disappointed. Nice wine selection too. Value for money. Great 60s French music adds to the atmosphere.

It is a nice spot, with a good decoration. We sat outside, it was pleasant. The food was really good, even though more expensive than the other restaurants but had a nice cuisine.

Great service that is very willing to fix any faults. Food is good but expect to order many portions before you are full.

Conveniently located near the Kyiv Opera House, this cute French restaurant offers opera theater-goers (with ticket stubs) a complimentary glass of prosecco with their meal. We were treated to a complimentary celery, apple yogurt appetizer which was light and refreshing. The menu is somewhat limited and on the pricey side, but the dishes we tried were tasty--especially the duck breast... More

This is by far one of the best places we are in Kiev. The food was amazing and the service fantastic. The 3 course set theater menu is fantastic value at 300, but is very limited and does not change. The desert of the day was lemon cheesecake on both the sat and mon. The chef must really like lemon... More
