Received dirty wine glasses. When we asked for new ones, we had all our starters served before we had to ask for glasses a second time so that we could finally enjoy our wine. Didn't receive any cutlery for our starters, so we had to grab them from other tables. Didn't receive any cutlery for our mains either, so we had to grab them from other tables again. The veal brains obviously were battered in flour but when we asked, they insisted there was no flour on them - when there was (see picture). We ordered rabbit dumplings, but when they arrived they were bits of dough with 3 bits of filling floating amongst the bits of dough in a puddle of double cream. This directly contradicts the definition of a dumpling, no matter where in the world you are. When we raised the issue of the non-dumpling dumpling, they were incredibly defensive about how there are different types of dumplings in Ukraine (which we weren't alerted to when ordering - also the Internet disagrees with you). When our porterhouse steak arrived 'medium rare', it was disappointing, dry, and merely medium. Also we had to eat looking into a shopping centre.

The one star goes to the amazing cloakroom guy.

What a find this was! You need to know the secret password to get in, and it is not easy to find, but once you're in, it's amazing! You start with a tour of the restaurant which is fabulous, and then anywhere you are seated is bound to be good. The menu is extensive for both food and drinks, and it seems to be a modern twist on traditional Ukrainian food. We had the cheese platter and the meat platter (one between 2 is fine), and lots of different cocktails. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere is wonderful. We were lucky enough to be there during a live music set too. The staff can't do enough for you.

This place is a hidden gem! Although it's tricky to find, it's by far the coolest place to dine in Kiev. Wonderful food, service & atmosphere. Definitely a must see!

The history behind the restaurant decoration and the tour which host provided for us were impressive. However food and service was unacceptable. First we saw 4 servers on the phones at the same time when we passed them by during our tour. Then one of them start loudly dragging a chair during whole restaurant.
On the top of they messed up our order. It was 3 of us, all ordered appetizers and a main course. They served 2 appetizers first, then start serving a main course while my friends didn’t even finish their salads and served me appetizer. When I asked why is that, they said we serve whatever is ready first! Can you believe it? By the way cooks do not understand the stake temperature at all. They recook our stakes 3 times! I can not recommend this place to eat, but highly recommend it to visits just to see how it is!
