The reason why my family and I like to go here is because it's one of the only places to go out for breakfast near where we live. The breakfasts are tasty and reasonably priced, along with the other diverse variety of options on the menu. I had pad Thai one time and that was delicious. The service is good,... More

I am useless when it comes to the local language so I went looking for a place where maybe they spoke English. Indeed, the waiters speak English here. I ordered a pizza and an orange juice. They were both good and had a good price. Good experience overall.

We stayed nearby to this cafe on our last trip to Kiev. The restaurant was conveniently located to our hotel and Gulliver Shopping Mall. The food was rather average. It was not bad, but did not top any charts. We tried the salmon, beef shashlik, pork, pasta, some salads, soup, chicken club, vegetables and a variety of drinks. I would... More

That is the place good for coctails, drinks, beer, snacks and kalian but not for family dinner or romantic moments. Music was too loud and we didn't hear each other. The choice of flavours for calian was limited to two-three options. I'd not return this place.

I visited L'Kafa on a Sunday afternoon. It seemed to be torn between being a coffee bar, a pizzeria, and a cocktail lounge - but not hitting the mark on any of these. It was dimply lit, not really the right ambience for the time of day (though maybe better for cocktails later in the day?). The waitresses were surly... More

The interior is dark and very average. Music is too loud for normal conversation. On the positive side, our waitress was professional, fast, and the pizza was tasty. May go back, may not.

Lot of reviews regarding poor service but I did not experience this though the few staff were busy. The menu is a huge book covering a wide variety, Ukrainian through Italian to Japanese which is concerning how a small restaurant can keep all the ingredients fresh for such a large menu. The pizza I had looked washed out, very bland... More

This is the only place open all night on the left bank in Rusanovka so I am forced to come here sometimes because my apartment is nearby. Otherwise I cannot recommend this place. Painfully slow service... I waited over 30 minutes for a beer.. And the restaurant was almost empty so I'm not sure what the delay was. It's always... More
