“The best restaurant food I already had in Ukraine”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

I dropped to this restaurant with my boyfriend who's French-Italian and pretty much concerned about good quality food. After trying top restaurants in the south of France, I can objectively judge that it's the best French cuisine I've tried in ukraine and the most fantastic risotto with sea food I've ever eaten:) my boyfriend confirmed )
Special compliment to the Citronelle chef, who cooked in France and Swtizerland before heading back to ukraine and treating us in Citronelle.

“2nd visit, fantastic food again”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

had the salmon salad started and was surprised by how good it was. For main i had the cod for my main which was nice, well cooked and well presented.service was great although being the only one in there helps, dropped a napkin and it was quickly replaced for example.its on the higher priced side but same as you pay in an average restaurant in western EU, my starter, main and a glass of wine was under 50 eurosmy favourite restaurant in kiev

“Great weekend breakfast!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Fantastic food, helpful staff & a very relaxed environment - one of the more expensive choices we made in Kiev but definitely worth it!
