The food is not that great and its obvious that they are using way too much oil. For that price I was expecting something much better. Desserts and bread are average, and the food is not good at all. As for the service it's also not that great. You don't feel like you are warmly greeted. Very cold and distant. The Premier Palace location is an absolute disaster, especially with that play area where babies scream while you are trying to conduct a business meeting or to have a friendly conversation, which speaks a lot of the quality of the restaurant and it's visitors.

This is THE place to go for lunch or tea time. Nice staff and atmosphere, it is highly recommended :-) It's my favorite when in Kiev.
Don't hesitate to ask for their ginger tea (hot drink with fresh brewed ginger) or their juices!!!

Wolkonsky is the THE place to meet daytime, for business and with friends.

It's centrally located and has a very nice & comfy interior, sofas... The service and the food is very good at quite reasonable prices. They also offer free WiFi so it's a good place to sit and work, to watch the people passing by - actually the perfect office, with good coffee.

In addition Wolkonsky is the place to buy bread and croissants for home, such as I do every day.

I think this is one of the best bakeries in Kyiv. They bake delicious bread, cookies, pastry. I cannot pass by without stopping to get their almond croissant. The prices there are a little higher then in some other places, but the quality is much better also. Definitely worth trying.
