“Good food, outrageous prices for wine”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

I should have been tipped off by the fact that this place was empty when I arrived at around 7 pm. At first glance, this is a nice restaurant, well appointed, with good service. I enjoyed the meal immensely. Had 300 ml of Pinot Grigio which went down well with the excellent food. However, shock set in when the bill came: the price for food was reasonable for what I had but the price for wine was 735 rph - about $90 for less than a 1/3 of a liter. I've been told later that you can buy a case of wine for that. This whole experience left a pretty sour taste in my mouth. If you go, don't order any wine.

“Likely the best fish in Kiev”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

I've been there several times and The quality of the fish is always at the top. Enough elegant place, in the historical part of the city, you can enjoy in summer time also a nice terrace.
The service is accurate and you have a quite wide choice of fish , seafood (in the menu they call "see reptiles") as well as some meat for the ones that don't like fish.
A couple of days ago I had a business dinner and some italian guests got delighted.
Among the other plates, I would suggest trying the 'Dorado carpaccio' with nuts and the 'Pike caviar'. The latter is a sort of white caviar I find mainly in Kiev; it is really cheap and delicious.
The only problem in restaurant: Prices!! Quite high and wines are really too expensive in comparison with the quality. But again: Good restaurants in Kiev are normally too expensive.

“Excellent fish, ridiculous wine prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

We had a pleasant evening out on the terrace, enjoying very fresh fish dishes, prepared to perfection. Service was very friendly, albeit on the slow side. Prices were western European, except for the wine which was horrendously expensive.
