This is good Ukranian food served in a traditionally decorated restaurant. It is close to the Universitet Metro stop, on the side of a well-maintained park. You'll need to make reservations if you want to sit on the patio during warm months, but the food tastes good anywhere. They have some interesting fish dishes, great pumpkin soup, and a delicious set of salads. It is pricier than many Kiev restaurants, but two can eat well, and have drinks, for $65 US. We went there on our last night in Kiev and it was a wonderful way to end the trip.

i rather enjoyed the design and decor of the place. at one point there was even live music playing. the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
shared some starters (sorry, i don't remember the names of the dishes..) including a veal liver and mushrooms in sauce; a pickled plate of pickles, mushrooms, fish and i think cucumber; and cold soup (not sure exactly what was in it but my companion called it a salad in soup form and a favorite during summer time). they were all delicious. waiter suggested a shot of vodka to go with the pickled plate. he was right, it went quite well and was nice and smooth.
main course was goose leg with caramelized apples and a cherry sauce. first time i'd ever seen goose on the menu so had to try it. it was quite tasty.
finished the night with varenyky filled with cherries. amazing!
also had a glass of the kvas there. was okay, but i preferred the one i had the day before in Rivne as that was a white-ish colored one with strong taste of honey. this one was brown and apparently more common.
price was higher than i expected but then remembered i was now in kiev and not rivne anymore

Broad menu with most of the Ukrainian specialties. Waiter helpful in navigating menu choices. Best grilled Salmon on the trip. Reasonable prices. Pleasant semi enclosed terrace. Still serving new customers at 10pm.

The food is excellent, the service good and the atmosphere one of the nicest I know in this city since this restaurant is located within a small park. Guests are mainly foreigners, I guess due to the price level (high for local standards but moderate for western europe). When I am back in Kiev, I will go there again.

Decent food and a lovely setting in the park, a bit sulky service but overall OK as long as you stay away from the toilets - or rather, the single toilet seat they have for a rather large restaurant. I Waited through the queue, went in and locked, and after some time a kid tried to come in, first turning the light off and then dashing off :) :)
