We had dinner at Franzol based on a recommendation from our tour guide. We were looking for a "traditional Odessa meal" and this place certainly has this. It also has an excellent location in City Garden park. Having said this, the service and food was...More

When entering this restaurant you immediately feel somewhere between your grandmother's drawing room, a 1930's railwaystation restaurant/waiting room and an American gangster movie (because of a special room/booth reserved always solely for the Russian stand-up comedian Zhvanetsky, set with fine chine and crystal glasses).

It took about an hour to serve Tabaka chicken and about 40-50 minutes for other dishes that we have ordered. And it was the worst Tabaka chicken I have ever tried.

The best place we ate in Odessa. A fabulous selection of Vodkas and many local dishes in addition to fresh seafood and vegetables. The desserts didn't disappoint either. They have a band but we wanted a place to talk so we were in an almost...More

My last day in Odessa, I decided to come here for lunch. I wanted a taste of a real Ukrainian meal and thus had borscht and pelmini. I don't regret it. The dishes hit the spot. It has a very hip feel while still being...More

Originally stopped by for a cup of coffee while waiting for a friend, but the service was so good, as was the coffee, that my wife and I went back on several other occasions. You can sit in an oasis of quiet while taking in...More

Try to go with a group of friends and get a table in the room with the band, who play a quirky jazz version of almost anything. The night we went it included Roll out the Barrel, Let my People Go and Hava Nedila. The...More

A sigh. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, it's old and near a park. The tables near the windows are nice. But the service was incredibly slow. So slow. They did try their best I'm sure, but it was just so slow despite there were...More
