Part of the Frederic Koklen Boutique Hotel, this restaurant upholds the high standards of quality; both in food and service. The place is elegant and service is first class. It features Ukrainian/Odessa specialties in the menu. Prices are more than reasonable when converted to dollars.

The prices might be a little high for Ukraine but they are OK for western countries. Dinner for 2 with drinks cost 40$. And the place is amazing. Service is awesome. The waitress was considerate and helpful. Food was very good. The duck was supreme. Seafood just good. All in all we were satisfied.

Both the service and the quality of the dishes were excellent; a little pricey by local standards, but quite a deal by North American standards!
