Description: A romantic date, a business lunch and a family dinner or just a desire to eat something that is really tasty... Whatever be the reason, choose LEO - a fine dining restaurant with impeccable cuisine, fascinating history and favorable location. In the hands of Denis Kuznetsov, the LEO' chef, dishes of European cuisine are being transformed into exquisite gastronomic puzzles. It seems to be a familiar taste; however, there is something new in it, something exciting and memorable. Located in the very heart of the city of Kyiv next to The Andriyivska Church and The Historical Museum.

Stunning views from the terrace, food delicious although slightly expensive
Very romantic with candles and prompt service - amazing ambience on a summer evening - recommended!

For me the terrace view is a major draw and I found the service itself is excellent :-) The food this time around tasted mediocre from starter to the desert. The beef stew was particularly disappointing in that the pieces of meat had too much gristle and the sauce was not particularly tasty. The vanilla milkshake on the other hand was always refreshing but that may or may not have had something to do with the heat. My friends had oysters which they said where fresh and tasty. This restaurant is quite a expensive option but I think that when the food comes together with the location it is difficult to beat.

We had a variety of fish dishes and my friends all seemed to enjoy themselves. The service was very good and the seating upstairs under the canopy was amazing. There where fans blowing around you to keep the heat down. From the starter to the desert the food was all to a very good standard. Decor was a acquired taste but I did like it and this place seemed to be set up as a very luxuries venue.
My only criticism is that the tables on the terrace where too close together but that in no way took away from the meal.
Don't know if you can just go for a drink but if you can I would go just to take a look at the view.

Good things first: Leo is a very classy place, with several options for private gatherings, as well as a really lovely outdoor patio with a stunning view over the city and river. Having visited quite a few trendy restaurants in Kiev, this was definitely my favourite, when it comes to location and decor. However, the food and wine were only average, and, given the somewhat disappointing quality, overpriced. I would return there only if I wanted a beautiful setting, without minding what is on my plate too much.
