“Great Desserts, and french lunch”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

The atmosphere is very nice, and the Patisserie has a good variety, although my first three dessert choices were unavailable at the time.
It also offers a decent variety of dishes, with an English menu.
I would definitely recommend this place for a good meal and even more for the desserts. They even have french macaroons!
Prices are a bit high, but nothing too surprising. A sandwich for a bit over 100 UAH, and desserts around 30-50UAH.

“I have been visiting this lovely restaraunt for over 10 years”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

The owner of this restaurant is a fanatic for great standards, so if you want fabulous food, great surroundings, lovely calm terrace and fantastic food and wine, then surprise is for you. It has been the top place for kievs elite for years now and you can bump into many of ukraines top celebs and politicians anytime. But the most important thing here is consistency it is always the quality of food, wine and service that strikes you and keeps you coming back as you know it will be the best.

“Very nice ambience and money worth the value”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Visited as a recommendation, as it was said to be restaurant that would give a nice impression for our guests. Was pleasantly surprised that business people are more than welcome and that there is a bar menu where you can select a small snack and some coffee for a reasonable price. Only wish the WiFi connection was a bit stronger. Overall I was very impressed. Thank you

“Delightful experience! LOVEED the pastries and tea..”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Had a very nice dinner with my family with the combination of aromatic tea, very delicious dishes and followed by amazing pastries; we got to enjoy all of it on the summer terrace which resembled a lucious garden! Definately would recommend it to my friends and collegues.
