This restaurant mainly serves Ukrainian food. The staff are dressed in local costumes and the they have menus in English as well as many other languages. We asked for recommendations and were pleased with our choices. We loved the potato pancakes and also their veal dishes. The staff were very friendly and happy to try out their English. We had a really enjoyable evening there.

This restaurant is very close to the Independence Square, just about 5 minutes of walk.

It has english menu with many types of traditional cuisine to choose. The price was not expensive as comparing to the western standard. I ordered 2 drinks, 2 bowls of borsh, a salad, a dish of chicken, a dish of pork and a dish of sausages. The whole dinner was less than 400 UAH, a very reasonable price.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very comfortable with very nice Ukrainian style decoration. All the waiters and waitresses dressed in traditional costumes and they were willing to take photos with customers. The waiters and waitresses were not only polite, but also helpful on recommending tourists what traditional food to try and explaining how the dishes were made. Very impressive indeed!!

I highly recommend this restaurants to other travelers to Kiev who want to try traditional Ukrainian food in a cozy place.

We had a mini family reunion and walked around Kiev during the May holidays. Closer to the evening my little one started to demand food :-) we stopped by Taras Bulba with no hope for a table since we didn't reserve any and voilà - we got a very friendly welcome and in couple of minutes we were sitting at the table. They were very full but still we were served quite soon and the service was super friendly. I ate some dishes that I missed for so long - golubzi! And pyrogy with cabbage. The only thing pyrogy were a bit small :-) or maybe I was too hungry. My 2-year old son was delighted to eat the whole bowl of borsch! We are definitely coming back and bringing more friends and family! Great central location, friendly service, very cozy inside, kids room, and the folk band was so good!

The service is friendly, the dishes are not bad for someone who wants to try local food.
The terrace is a nice place to eat.
The restaurant is close to the Golden Gate.
